“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
Sanctuary Worship Series: Celebrate! Living the Abundant Life
Sundays, September 30-October 28
Do you find yourself thinking more about what is lacking in your life, rather than what is overflowing? Do you feel stuck, wishing you could become more generous or more open to God’s leading? Jesus said that he came in order for our lives to change—to become more abundant. He didn’t expect that anyone listening had already arrived at the full measure of abundance; he came in order to make it possible. So what does abundance look like on the ground? What is the fulfillment we really long for, and how does God help us get there? Join us for this five-week series this fall as we take steps toward the abundant life Jesus promises.

Churchwide Celebration Picnic
October 21, 12:15 p.m.
We will celebrate our ministry and growth in generosity at a churchwide picnic. Bring your picnic blanket and come prepared to purchase lunch. Have a favorite outdoor game to share? Feel free to bring games – washers, kickball, or even Frisbees – as we gather for fellowship and fun!
We will place our Generosity Commitment Cards in the offering plate as an act of worship on October 28. Completing and returning a Generosity Commitment Card expresses your intent and affirms your desire to honor God with your financial generosity. Your financial generosity enables all of our ministries to answer God’s call effectively. Sharing with the church your prayerful decision to be generous makes it possible for us to confidently make and implement bold plans for effective ministry. You may also submit your pledge online at fumcaustin.org/pledge.
Time and Talents Survey
What are your talents? God blesses each of us with gifts to be used together to form the body of Christ in the church and do God’s work in the world. In addition to our financial generosity, we also give to God of our time and talents. Are you a great organizer of events? Enjoy public speaking? Handy around the house? You can serve God through the church with your talents. Fill out our Time and Talents Survey at fumcaustin.org/talents or place a printed brochure in the offering plate. Printed copies are available in the foyer.
