Sermon Sound Bites

Allen’s Sermon Sound Bites- August 23, 2009

{Sound bite: Mark Twain described the concept as “a minimum of sound to a maximum of sense.” It is characterized by a short phrase or sentence that deftly captures the essence of what the speaker is trying to say. …}

“Be willing to change directions but not the course. The course must stay the same.”

“Balance in life is what we take in and give out i.e. how we receive God’s grace and share God’s grace.”

“If you are subject to a thing, then that thing is an idol.”

“The hope is in the truth, not the lie.”

“Something always starts with nothing.”

Mission Team Returns from Coast

SANY1133The Young Adults spent the week of June 21-28 in Brunswick, GA. Elderly and/or disabled citizens apply to the city for help in repairing their homes. Brunswick receives funding from grants for which the city has applied. The lady who was the recepient of the grant was both elderly and disabled. Major and minor repairs were performed:painting, drywalling, construction,etc.Troy Ayers commented, “I was very impressed with the work ethic of our young adult team as they worked as a unit.”

On Friday, Hartwell First’s YAMs were honored by the mayor and city council of Brunswick for their volunteer efforts by proclaiming June 26 Hartwell First UMC Day and presenting Rev. Ayers with the keys to the city.

Congratulations, team! We are proud of you. Watch a slideshow of their mission work here.
