God created us in His image so our natural instinct is to do and be “good.” Using I John 3:16 as her sermon text, Pastor Rhonda Troll emphasized that we were made to be like Christ on this earth and that we are Christ’s representatives in this world. As a good shepherd would lay down his life for his sheep, we are asked to give up our lives for others. Obedience and love enable us to lay down things we think are important so that we can give to someone else. Giving up time, which we sometimes find so valuable in our lives, is a way to help others in need.

Serving as acolytes and ushers for the service were Brannon Woelfel and Stephen Harlos.

The Fashing United Methodist Church kicked off a new ministry to serve as a support group for the vision impaired on Saturday, April 28. The ministry has been tagged as South Texas Rural Impaired Vision Encouragers or STRIVE, and it was created to provide area visually impaired residents with support and fellowship. STRIVE meetings will be held on the last Saturday of each month at different area churches. Anyone interested in attending or seeking more information should contact Linda O’Connell at 830-299-0128.

The monthly dominoes social will held 7 p.m. on May 4 in the Fashing church fellowship hall.
