Ongoing Updates for FUMC Temple Activities

UPDATE March 16, 2020:

Last week in one of the daily devotionals, Tom mentioned how we were living in weird times. I couldn't have said it better myself. This is a weird time in which we find ourselves, but also a great opportunity for the Church to learn how to connect with one another and our community in new ways.

**In-person services will be suspended until further notice as of March 16, 2020**

As we transition to gathering in new ways, your pastors and staff will:

· Maintain our connection to the entire congregation - nobody will be left behind as we confront these challenges together. Our communication to the congregation will be both regular and substantive. [Send your most updated phone number, e-mail, and mailing address to the church office at 254.773.5269 or contact@fumctemple.org]

· Demonstrate the love of Jesus to our neighbors, especially those who are most vulnerable. [Are you ready to help? Contact Pastor Brian - brian.longley@fumctemple.org]

· Encourage you to practice faithful stewardship of your prayers, presence(digital), gifts [www.fumctemple.org/give], service and witness.

One way we will keep this promise is through a new video segment that will publish to our Facebook feed and YouTube channel weekdays after lunch. The segment content will vary each day but will address all age groups and ministries across the church. We will invite you to sing, to serve, to study and stand with us as we carry God's love to our community. 

Most importantly, never let someone tell you the Bible isn't full of practical advice. Take, for example, the words of James: "Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded" James 4:8 NIV

Update: March 14, 2020

Dear Faith Family,


Yesterday afternoon, the TISD decided to extend Spring Break for one additional week.   Because our Mother's Day Out follows the TISD calendar, our church will close MDO next week.

We will have worship services this Sunday and the church staff will be at work next week but there will be no programs, studies, or chapel services.   


I pray your day is filled with joy and laughter.

Tom Robbins
