Calling all Photographers – Llamando a todos los fotógrafos

How can we take our invitation to follow Jesus Christ to the next level?  How can we show how we love one another and spread that love around?  The website is showing an increase in the number of visitors.  The people visiting are bookmarking the website so they may return to see what new activities and articles we are providing.

Our church is a very busy place. We have many ministries, groups, classes and activities occurring weekly.  We have the construction on the expansion coming up this summer.  The contruction will spread our groups and meetings to different meeting places.

We have handheld cameras and cameras on our phones.  I invite everyone to explore their inner photographer.  Are you attending a small group?  Can you take a photograph with some of the persons that receive assistance from our ministries?  Are you feeling “silly” while enjoying fellowship?  Take some pictures and send them along with a note to tell me about them.  I can then share them on the website and invite others to join us as we follow Jesus Christ.

The pictures and descriptions can be sent to Christine Langridge at nlmethodistblog@gmail.com

¿Cómo podemos tomar nuestra invitación a seguir a Jesucristo al siguiente nivel? ¿Cómo podemos mostrar cómo amamos uno al otro y propagación que aman alrededor? El sitio web muestra un aumento en el número de visitantes. Las personas que visitan son marcadores del sitio web para que puedan volver a ver qué nuevas actividades y artículos que estamos proporcionando.

Nuestra iglesia es un lugar muy concurrido. Tenemos muchos ministerios, grupos, clases y actividades que ocurren semanalmente. Tenemos la construcción de la expansión de este verano. La construcción extenderá a nuestros grupos y reuniones a diferentes lugares.

Tenemos portátiles y cámaras en nuestros teléfonos. Invito a todos a explorar su fotógrafo interno. ¿Que está asistiendo a un pequeño grupo? ¿Puedes tomar una fotografía con algunas de las personas que reciben asistencia de nuestros ministerios? ¿Se siente “tonto” mientras disfruta de becas? Tomar fotos y enviarlas junto con una nota que decirme acerca de ellos. Puedo compartirlos en la web y luego invitar a otros a unirse a nosotros mientras seguimos a Jesucristo.

Las fotos y descripciones pueden enviarse a Christine Langridge en nlmethodistblog@gmail.com

EPIC and Confirmation – EPIC y Confirmación

EPIC

Confirmation is under way for 9 youth and their mentors. Each week they dig further into their faith journey and our Christian beliefs. We are looking forward to a Confirmation Retreat at Pictured Rocks in Monticello in March. Who doesn’t love rock climbing, faith trails and lots of fun games?? Can’t wait!

EPIC high school youth have started a new curriculum series called Life Choices—Trusting God in Life’s Decisions and Challenges. We are seeing some great discussion happening about the issues that impact our daily lives and our faith. The Youth are also actively designing the new Youth space for the Building Expansion. Slides and Hammocks are so far highest on their “want” list. The Youth Team’s list includes couches for discussion spaces, chairs and tables for projects and maybe a new Foosball table. We are thrilled to be able to open the new Youth Space up during the week which I believe will really impact our teen ministry.

Another big event coming up in 2015 is our High School Mission Trip to Hannibal, MO. July 5—11.  We will be serving the people of Hannibal in need of home repair and construction. We are still looking for one adult male to join our team. Feeling that God “nudge” to get out and do something new?

Please consider joining us—it is a great opportunity to serve others and share in outreach with our kids.

Confirmación está en marcha para el 9 de los jóvenes y sus mentores. Cada semana que cavar más lejos en su camino de fe y nuestras creencias cristianas. Estamos mirando adelante a un retiro de la Confirmación en rocas y medio en Monticello en marzo. ¿Quién no ama la escalada en roca, senderos de la fe y un montón de divertidos juegos ?? No puedo esperar!

Jóvenes de secundaria EPIC han comenzado una nueva serie llamada vida currículo EleccionesConfiar en Dios en las decisiones y retos de la vida. Estamos viendo alguna gran discusión sucediendo acerca de los problemas que afectan a nuestra vida cotidiana y nuestra fe. La juventud también están diseñando activamente el nuevo espacio de la Juventud para la Expansión del edificio. Diapositivas y hamacas son hasta el momento más alto de su lista de querer”. La lista del equipo juvenil incluye sofás para espacios de discusión, mesas y sillas para los proyectos y tal vez una nueva mesa de futbolín. Estamos encantados de ser capaces de abrir el nuevo Espacio Joven durante la semana que creo que realmente impactar nuestro ministerio juvenil.

Otro gran evento viene en el 2015 es nuestro viaje Mission High School a Hannibal, MO. 5 a 11 jul. Vamos a servir a la gente de Aníbal en necesidad de reparaciones en el hogar y la construcción. Todavía estamos buscando un macho adulto para unirse a nuestro equipo. Sintiendo que Dios “codazo” para salir y hacer algo nuevo?

Por favor, considere unirse a nosotros, es una gran oportunidad de servir a los demás y compartir en actividades de divulgación con nuestros hijos.
