HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS – A NEW YEAR SERMON SERIES
All of us want better relationships: in our families, with our friends, at work. Often we just don’t know how to get there. But there are some simple things we can do to foster healthy relationships: by getting our anxiety under control, practicing empathy, honoring boundaries, improving communication, and building trust. Join us on Sundays at 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 as we look to the scriptures for wisdom on building healthy relationships

HELP TACKLE HUNGER: Since it began 28 years ago, Souper Bowl of Caring has raised more than $135 million for local charities across the country.

Youth will be at the back of the worship space in the FLC at the end of the 10:00 am service to receive your donations; checks made payable to MUMC with “Souper Bowl” in the memo line. If you don’t want to wait until next Sunday, you can donate today. Just drop your donation in the offering plate. Please make sure it is clearly labeled on the check or blue pew envelope for “Souper Bowl.”
