Starting Point Sunday 2018

Sunday, August 26

Can you believe that summer is practically over? School is about to start back, and shopping for school supplies, new clothes, and everything that it entails is high priority in everyone’s minds.

Here at NRUMC, we will soon start our new year of discipleship classes, special events, outreach, opportunities, music groups, and worship. To help us do that, Starting Point Sunday is on August 26. Our children will be promoted to new classes, and we will be called to Live a Generous Life throughout the year as we seek to make our world better through outreach, giving, and discipleship.

Ministry Opportunities

From 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., tables will be set up under the large tent displaying the many mission and ministry opportunities here at NRUMC, including small groups, Bible studies, Sunday School classes, children’s and youth groups, music ministry opportunities, and so much more! If you’re looking for ways to grow at North Raleigh, make sure to be here that morning!

Backpack Blessing

During the 11:15 a.m. worship service, we invite students, teachers, and school personnel to bring your backpack or lunch boxes for our annual Backpack Blessing. It will be a special time to lift up students of all ages, along with teachers and parents, dedicating them to God’s glory as we begin a new school year. During this worship service, we will celebrate our school partnership with Baileywick Elementary. Everyone is encouraged to bring school supplies to be given to Baileywick for students in need. Boxes for Baileywick, our annual school supplies drive, is running through Starting Point Sunday, so be sure to drop supplies off in one of the boxes in the Atrium, lobby, or near the church office. Click here for a list of supplies needed or see the poster in the Atrium or lobby.

Church Cookout

Beginning at noon, you are invited to a church cookout featuring hot dogs and hamburgers provided by our United Methodist Men. There will be dining tables set up in the Fellowship Hall for sharing and social gathering, and you will still be able to browse the ministry tables as well.

Living a Generous Life 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 26 and find your place to grow and serve as we follow Him.
