Coming to Worship on May 29: Stories That Changed The World

Our next worship series, “Stories That Changed The World: The Parables of Jesus” is based on some of the more familiar parables shared by Jesus. We selected these parables because they are featured in the musical Godspell, which our youth are presenting at their choir tour homecoming performance on June 6 at 7:00pm. If you are looking for some additional background on parables, watch this video by the Bible Project . This five-minute overview is a good teaching tool: Watch:…

Worship Series: Loving God, Loving Neighbor

As followers of Christ, we are called to love God and love neighbor. To help us learn how to be better neighbors, FUMC Allen elected to participate in the Good Neighbor Experiment (GNE) in 2022. We kick off our local experiment in worship right on Sunday, April 24, but the work has already begun. In February 2022, we established a team from our congregation who will be working with teams from other churches in our area to create events and challenges…

Lent 2022

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, meaning “lengthen” and refers to the lengthening days of spring. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the…

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday Worship Wednesday March 2 12:00pm & 7:00pm FUMC Allen Sanctuary Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent for those of the Christian faith. During a special service of worship, we receive ashes imposed on our foreheads to remember that we are dust. At the same time, we acknowledge that we are also fearfully and wonderfully made by our God who breathed life into us from a little bit of dust. We welcome you to join…

Holy Land Prayer Requests

The Western Wall is the holiest of Jewish sites, drawing millions of worshippers from around the world each year. Believers touch the Wall or lean their foreheads against it as they pray and seek the God of Israel. Many carry written prayers on small slips of paper to tuck into the crevices of the Wall’s ancient stones, either for themselves or on behalf of loved ones. We want to offer you the honor of having your prayer placed in the…

February Worship Series: Shalom The Gift of Peace

My peace I give to you. John 14:27a What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Peace”? We’ve asked around and concluded that peace means many different things to many different people. Peace can translate to a lack of conflict between nations, neighbors, or families: a time when there is no war. Peace could bring to mind a moment of quiet, calm, freedom from disturbance, or tranquility. It can also be associated with a certain style of music…

January Worship Series

Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? Sundays, January 9-30 2022 8:40am & 11:00am Sanctuary No figure in history has received more attention, and has been less understood, than Jesus of Nazareth. Even the disciples were consistently confused. Some people want Baby Jesus in a manger.  Some people want the “Genie” Jesus who will give them the close-in parking spot or the football win.  Some people want King Jesus to give them power and privilege. Who is the real Jesus…
