A note from the pastor for April, 2018

When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

John 20:22

Easter is sneaking up on us! By the time you receive this newsletter, we will only be a few days away from Resurrection Day! Here are a few things to remember:

April 1: Easter Sunrise service is at 6 AM, followed by the Men’s Group fundraising breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. We will have the regular 8:15 and 10:30 services as well. The chancel choir will present their Easter cantata at the 10:30 service ONLY.

We wanted to reiterate how much we appreciate your faithfulness! The weather has been unpredictable, and you have been great about catching up on your contributions when you returned from being away. Without your generosity and faithfulness, DFUMC would not be able to function properly. Thank you so much! We appreciate all you do to help the church financially. To God be the glory!

Don’t forget to turn in your Lenten coin folders to support the Dickson Community Clinic. It is due to your generosity that the clinic is able to provide services to those who are less fortunate.

On April 22, we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The United Methodist Church. The denomination was formed on April 23, 1968 when The Methodist Church merged with the Evangelical United Brethren Church. We hope you will be present for this special occasion.

Our day at the Cancer Auction will be April 24. We encourage you to start planning on your baked goods donations for this event.

Any day now, construction will begin on the CLC. We ask you to be patient with all the interruptions which may occur due to this process. If you are able-bodied, we are asking you to park in the parking lot behind Back Alley BBQ, so those who may have limitations in their mobility can park closer to the building. Thank you for your consideration.

It is a very exciting time to be a part of the DFUMC family! We encourage you to find ways to connect with people and ministries that will assist you in your spiritual growth. I am glad to be your pastor and friend! God bless you.
