The Letter to the Ephesians: A final lesson on the Armor of God
On Sunday, we conclude our study of the book of Ephesians as we wrap our conversation on the armor of God in chapter 6. No doubt Paul is looking at the Roman soldier’s armor to teach us about spiritual matters and the things of God. The function of the Roman soldier’s armor was defensive. It was designed to keep the soldier from dying so that he could go on fighting for the Empire. The function of the Christian’s “armor” described is quite different. The function of the “armor of God” is to keep the faithful alive — alive in Christ. 

There is a difference between striving just not to die, and doing all you can to live life to the fullest. There are freeways, factories, and families full of people who are just trying not to die. These people keep going to work, keep going on. But they don’t know why. Weekends and vacations become blurry, frantic “festivals” — parties devoted to trying to celebrate something other than the mere survival of another week, another season, another year. Let’s live life fully.

Onward: A Movement for HFUMC Kids and Youth
This summer, we have two awesome opportunities for HFUMC Kids (K - 6th grade) and our Youth (7th grade and up). Both events share the same mission: for our students to LEARN about their faith, understand how to LIVE as Christian Disciples, so that they may go out and CHANGE the world.

HFUMC Kids will host the Onward Kids Weekend for rising 3rd through 7th graders, July 15 - 18. It will include overnight stays at HFUMC in the Kids wing and a day trip to Fall Creek Falls. Saturday, rising K-2 students are invited to participate in a special day camp. Click the button below for full details , along with a link to register.
HFUMC Youth will host the ONWARD Youth Conference, featuring guest speaker Reggie Dabbs. He will lead youth to learn, live and change as their faith develops. This conference is open to all area youth (7th-12th grades). The HFUMC Praise Team will lead worship. Click the link below to learn more and register.
