DON'T FORGET TO FALL BACK ON NOVEMBER 1
Greetings!

Serving is an integral part of living as a follower of Jesus Christ. Our annual Holiday Challenge invites us to be the hands and heart of God in the world even when our folks around us are focused on self-indulgence.

Check out our Holiday Challenge 2020 web page to find the right opportunity where you and your family can serve. We have ten projects for this holiday season, and there's something for everyone.

Our challenge kicks off on Sunday, November 8, with our final collection ending on Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24.

At FUMC Allen, we are a community that puts faith into action.

The Here for Good Prayer Team is hosting a prayer event on Sunday, November 1, in conjunction with the events of Celebration Sunday.

On Sunday evening, the team will be in the labyrinth where you can pick up a 9"x 12" prayer sign for your yard. You'll use a permanent marker to write your name on the front of the sign; on the back, you can write the names of those for whom you are praying. You can even have your prayer recipients write their names on the back of the signs at Sunday evening's variety show. Permanent markers will be available for your use.

The team will have prayer signs available on request at the 4:00pm pie/cookie pick up event.

Team members will also be available to drop a sign at your home until our supply is depleted. Contact Ruth Swingle, RuthS@fumcallen.org, to arrange a drop-off.
