Sunday Worship at the First United Methodist Church of Eugene
We hope to see you tomorrow morning at 9am or 11am for worship at the First United Methodist Church of Eugene! There is an All-Comer's Choir singing in the 9am service this Sunday - all are welcome! - and if you want to participate, the call time is 8:15am in the sanctuary.

Join us at 10am for book groups in the chapel and in room 19, diving into our Advent study of Brian McLaren's "We Make the Road by Walking." Our Bishop, Rev. Elaine Stanovsky, and her team have made some great resources available to the conference as we work with this book together. You can explore those by clicking here.

Our scripture reading this Sunday is the angel Gabriel's prophecy to Mary, and you can check it out by clicking here . As we move deeper into the Advent season together, we remember again the power of Mary's witness, and the reminder that nothing is impossible with God.

Finally, various annual conferences across our denomination are making available some wonderful resources for us to work with this season, that call our hearts to the challenges faced by our immigrant and migrant neighbors. Click here for an example of some of that great content . We will be working with content like this over the next few weeks.

Grateful to be on this
Advent journey with you!

Children & Youth this Sunday!
Both of our Sunday morning worship services include Godly Play for ages 4 - 12.

Youth group with Wendy will meet at 10am

Our Ring / Sing / Serve program will meet at 10:15am in Room 16 for Christmas Eve pageant preparation :)
Sunday Morning Men's Group!
The men's group is meeting tomorrow at 8:00am!

This is a great group of guys, and they are particularly good at welcoming first-timers - oh, and they always have great coffee! They meet in the church library!
Creative Ways to Give!
On your green sheets Sunday you will see this image! It is a QR code, and if you have a smart phone, its camera will recognize its unique pattern, and direct you to our giving website! It is a great way to give to the church if you find yourself without a checkbook on Sunday morning! Let the church office know if you have any questions!
Conference-wide Study in December!
This December we have a really incredible resource that is informing our ministry together - a great book by Brian McLaren, “We Make the Road by Walking.”

We have some great Advent reading groups coming together to explore this book together. Right now, we have groups forming up:

  • Tuesday evenings - 7pm at Falling Sky (a short walk from the church)
  • Thursday mornings, 9:45am in the church library
  • Sundays at 10am in the chapel
  • Sundays at 5pm with Restore

Our hope is that these groups will be permeable - one week it may work out for you to join the Tuesday evening group, but another week it may work better for you to attend the Sunday discussion.

All are welcome!
Come Restore at Vero!
In December the Restore group is reading the Brian McLaren book, "We Make the Road by Walking!"

This Sunday at 5pm we will meet up for some discussion at Vero Espresso House, a short walk from the church, at the corner of 14th and Pearl.

You can always find upcoming opportunities to Restore on our MeetUp site, by clicking here.
