Church-Wide Study

Starting January 13, our church will be participating in a 12-week study called, Unshakable Hope:  Building Our Lives on the Promises of God by Max Lucado.  Each Sunday, one of the pastors will be preaching on the chapter/topic; each week following, small groups and bible studies will have the opportunity to focus on the same chapter/topic using a video based curriculum.

If you are a leader of a small group or want to start a small group, the following materials can be ordered from Amazon or Christian Book Distributors:

              –Unshakable Hope 12-session DVD by Max Lucado

              –Unshakable Hope Study Guide by Max Lucado

              –Unshakable Hope book, by Max Lucado —hardback, audio, or e-book (note: The book itself isn’t required by every small group member unless your intent is to complete the personal study portion of the study guide in addition to the group study.)

If you are a leader and need any assistance acquiring this material or have any questions, please email Pastor Mike.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

No-Sew Blanket Making for “Project Linus.” for DUMC Children and Their Families

Monday, January 21 10:00 am-12:00 pm

This organization provides handmade blankets to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. We will be making no-sew, knotted fleece blankets. Last year, we had a great time making more than 70 blankets that were delivered to children all over Bucks and Montgomery counties!

Please bring a minimum of 2 yards of fleece (cut into two equal sized pieces) per blanket that you would like to make, and bring good scissors. Fleece fabric is available at all craft and hobby stores.   Another popular option is to buy a fleece blanket kit at Michaels or Joanne’s. You can use a 50% off coupon and they are usually on sale in January as well.

If you could please bring a dozen bagels, donuts or munchkins, we will supply the coffee.

RSVPs are greatly appreciated.  To RSVP or for more information, contact Shelby Buron at SBuron@doylestownumc.com

Wild Fires, Hurricanes and Floods

Deuteronomy 15:11

For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore, I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’

When tragedy strikes, Church World Services is prepared to help immediately. A blanket can provide warmth to a victim of a flood or fire or serve as bedding to a guest in a homeless shelter or be a gift of welcome to a newly arrived refugee or migrant worker.

How can you help?

A $10 donation will fund the cost of one blanket that can be shipped out to someone who is in great need for it. Please consider “giving back” to others by making a donation on Blanket Sunday, February 3. Envelopes will be in the pews or you can send a check to DUMC with “Blanket Sunday” in the memo line.

For more information, visit www.churchworldservice.org or search Church World Service Blankets on www.youtube.com  to see a good video describing the program.

Wednesday Lenten Services

Lent is the period of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday  to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, fasting, serving and self-denial.  During Lent, we will gather as a church for mid-week Lenten soup suppers, followed by a worship service.   Every Wednesday night, March 6 (Ash Wednesday) through April 10, we will gather for fellowship and food at 6:15 pm, and then worship together with traditional and contemporary music at 7:15 pm.  Please note that you do not have to come for dinner to attend the service.  At the Ash Wednesday service (March 6), there will be the imposition of ashes and Holy Communion.

This is what goes into the Lenten article:  This year, we will focus on the video/bible study series called Final Words from the Cross created by Rev. Adam Hamilton, pastor of one of the largest United Methodist Churches in the country.  The aim of the study is to provide fresh insight into Jesus’ final words at the cross through the perspective of those who witnessed the crucifixion.
