Starting Point Sunday 2017

Sunday, August 27

For many of us, school is just around the corner. Shopping for school supplies, books, and fall clothes becomes a part of everyone’s schedule.

Here at North Raleigh, on Sunday, August 27, we will celebrate Starting Point Sunday. A great day is planned as our children are promoted to new classes and we move into our 2017-2018 year.

Ministry Opportunities
There will be something for all ages. On the church lawn and sidewalks, we invite you to join us from 9:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and visit the many displays highlighting mission and ministry opportunities here at NRUMC. Whether you seek a Bible study group, time to fellowship with your family, long-term or short-term classes, or simply a way to serve others through mission and outreach, you will have the chance to learn more about ministries that will challenge and help you as we seek to be the church and people God desires us to be.

Back-to-School Blessing
During the 11:15 a.m. worship service, we invite students, teachers, and school personnel to bring your backpack, lunch boxes, and even briefcases, for our annual Back-to-School Blessing. It will be a special time to lift up students of all ages, their teachers and parents, dedicating them to God’s glory as we begin a new school year. Also during this worship service, we will celebrate our school partnership with Baileywick Elementary by blessing the school supplies collected in the previous weeks.

Church Cookout
Following the 11:15 worship service, you are invited to stay for a church cookout featuring hot dogs, hamburgers and all the trimmings provided by our United Methodist Men and Women. You will still have a chance to browse the ministry exhibits. Tables will be set up under the “Big Tent” on the lawn or inside the Fellowship Hall for people to share in a time of meal sharing and fellowship. As we seek Christ in this new season of study, worship, and mission, we can only imagine the extraordinary places God will take us!! Join us on Sunday, August 27, and find your place to grow and serve as we follow Him.
