Tuesday, June 20 @ 7PM
@ Grace United Methodist Church
“Go Where You Send Me”
performed by Grove UMC Youth Choir
from West Chester, PA
This production was a God centered musical!
The young people are traveling all over the United States
performing so please come to see them! (Hope you didn’t miss them)  You will enjoy an
evening of uplifting, inspirational music by The Grove Youth Group who traveled all the way from Pennsylvania.

Here is that song that they may perform as part of their inspirational concert!

As an older person hearing this song by a young artist reminds me that all churches need young people. Involve their young ideas and inspiration as a vital part of the spread of the gospel. They should be a necessary component for the success of any church. Sorry Charles Wesley, we need modern songs that attract new generations for the future of our houses of worship.

*************************************************************
Don’t forget to go to Union Street Hannaford’s to shop and
buy their recyclable bags that say “This bag helped
someone in need.” This store is donating .25 for
every bag sold in June! Also the current month of October, the store is also contributing towards our food ministry program that helps the Bangor Community greatly.  Thanks to all of you who support this program and help your less fortunate neighbors around you.

Welcome to the Grace United Methodist Church Website

Now that Christmas has come and gone, what now?

read this little  poem by Howard Thurman:

“The Work of Christmas”                                                              
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the Kings and Princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins.
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry
To release the prisoner,
To teach the nations,
To bring Christ to all,
To make music in the heart.  

Thanks Lynn and Paula for sharing this little gem as it helps us to re-focus!!

 Out of the awareness of grace comes freedom, authority, power, love, worship, and life in abundance (John 10:10)

Grace is more than second chances, surprises, and unmerited gifts. Grace comes in our inability and failure, and provides radical changes and a paradigm shift. Grace gives new opportunities and a fresh revelation of God and life. Grace will transform you.

God is love. He cares for you and is faithful to His covenant promises, and so He forgives you. God is holy and righteous, and paid the price that forgiveness requires in Jesus Christ. When love, faithfulness, and righteousness were united at the cross, grace and forgiveness was offered to you (2 John 3; John 1:12).GraceFoodMinistry

What is amazing about grace? As the undeserved, unearned favor of God, grace can never be earned by your good deeds or received as a result of religious performance. Grace means God freely and openly receives sinners—even you with all your flaws and hang-ups. Grace is manifested in human failure, sin, weakness, loss, and heartbreak.

The wonder of God’s grace is that it does not give up. It takes you right where you are and transforms you into who you were meant to become when you were created. God’s grace transforms an ugly, awkward, incomplete caterpillar into a graceful butterfly that can soar into life abundant. That’s what God’s desire is for you, life to the full.

Grace is a gift that is received by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9), totally undeserved by you. It is by grace through faith that God’s life, power, and righteousness are acknowledged. However, that grace must be received (John 1:12). Your faith is born and established in this loving relationship. Grace is about relationships (Revelation 3:20). Grace enlightens my communion with God, with others, and with myself.
