VBS At Christ UMC Is June 1-6

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Vacation Bible School at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, will be June 1-6 with two sessions:  Evening: Sunday-Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Morning: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-noon.

At Weird Animals VBS, kids discover that Jesus’ love is one-of-a-kind. Weird Animals is a habitat filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the "Tail End" Friends section each day/evening (30 minutes prior to dismissal) because that’s when we’ll be having a daily celebration of Jesus’ love you won’t want to miss.

Register your children for this life-changing adventure with the church. 

The Ladies Supper Club for women over 50 will meet Tuesday, June 3 at 6 p.m. at J. Alexanders at Hamilton Place. Reservations are necessary. Call Ann Boleman at 855-870.

Join us for Business Women’s Lunch on Tuesday, June 10, 11:30, at the Sheraton Read House. We will discuss Career Roadblocks. Learn about common barriers we all come up against and how to overcome them. Free parking.

Lunch will be ordered from the Porter’s menu and the cost is $15.60.  Space is limited to 35 so register early.

Steve Ellison: Christian Citizenship

Even without television in my home, I have not been able to escape the shroud of evil that we have cast over the current election.  Sadly, it seems that we could not have come up with two more unqualified candidates for POTUS if we had sat down and plotted a course with that as our end goal.  However, it seems to me that this fact is not our biggest problem concerning ...

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Picture a sold-out baseball game at Wrigley Field or Nationals Park packed with 40,000 fans. That image represents roughly the same number of women and men who die from breast cancer each year.  In Tennessee alone, an estimated 900 women will die from the disease in 2016. It is a sad statistic, but there is some good news: thanks to early detection and improved treatments, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: What Southerners Sing

Barry Norris plays the organ at Birmingham’s East Lake United Methodist Church and two days ago the church hosted what we used to call “A Singing on the Grounds.” Today it is called a “Hymnfest” and, believe it or not, it is has to be just as fun today as it was 100 years ago when our forefathers tied their horse and wagon to a tree. It just so happens I know a little bit about ... (click for more)
