The Jones Road Worship Band from New Life Baptist Church provides the songs, many of which will be familiar to those who listen to K-LOVE radio station or Spirit on Sirius.
“If you like the music of Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, the David Crowder Band, Third Day and other popular Christian groups like that, you will enjoy the early service,” FUMC members said. “It is a spirit-filled worship experience similar to that found in larger cities with universities and a vibrant young adult population.”
FUMC Pastor Bill Duke delivers the sermon, leads the congregation in prayer for those who are sick, hurting or in need, and serves Holy Communion to all those attending. FUMC members invite Beeville area residents looking for a church home, or wanting to discover life’s meaning in Jesus Christ, to give this new service a try.
If one would rather sleep later or prefers a more traditional Sunday service, with the familiar hymns, liturgy and choir, and occasionally a handbell choir, FUMC hosts its traditional Methodist service at 10:45 a.m.
Sunday school classes for all ages are offered between the two services, starting at 9:30 a.m.
Also, FUMC presents its informal Sunday Night Alive service at 6 p.m. Sunday, with guitar picking and showing of movie clips.
FUMC again is hosting its “Home for Christmas” promotional event and encourages everyone in the community to come home to the United Methodist Church, or find a church and attend services, to make the Advent and Christmas season more meaningful.
