    The Shepherd Who Felomsl Asleep

    On Sunday, November 30, we will have a special guest speaker during the morning services. Mark Winter, a United Methodist Evan-gelist and the One Man of One Man Show Ministries will be here that day to present “The Shepherd Who Fell Asleep”. This presenta-tions is a costumed biblical drama for the holidays. The monologue features a lone shepherd who dozed during the angelic an-nouncement of Christ’s birth. When his fellow shepherds wake him with news of the Babe in a manger, he comes to faith in Jesus. The monologue features “The For-gotten Carols” melody, “The Shep-herd’s Song (You Were Not There inBethlehem),” written by compos-er, author and filmmaker, Michael McLean.
    Mark formed his One Man Show Ministries in 1999 as a “creative force for God.” Using drama as a primary means of communication, his ministry has taken him to over 25 states, Mexi-co and Washington, D.C. He is an ordained United Methodist elder in the Central Texas Conference. Mark lives in Fort Worth, TX with his wife, Laura. They have three children.
    Please invite a friend on this special day! Mark will be on hand after the performance at a display table that will give information about One Man Show, along with his Advent devotional book, “Just One Word”. We will collect a love offering for Mark on the day of the performance. As a self supporting evangelist, he relies solely on churches and individu-als to fund his ministry.

    Do you know what a gingerbread house is?  A Candy Church is on the same lines but the frame of the church is not edible.
    Stop by the Fellowship Hall on Sunday to see the fun and stay to make one for yourself.
    It is a good way to start the Advent season and a neat piece of decoration for the holiday.


    communitynightCokesbury Community Night !

    We begin each Wednesday evening with a catered meal at 5:30 PM.  Starting at 6:00 PM the program modules will begin.  Two modules will be ongoing and do not require signing up to attend.

    The first is a Tutorial/Homework session for children and teenagers.  The other is games for all ages.

    The second two modules are going to be of limited duration.  The first two classes will be “bible Study for Dummies” and “Holiday Goodies”.  These classes do not require any special skills to join, but will be limited in how many people can attend.

    We have a whole list of other classes that we want to offer following these.  The list of classes offered will depend on the number of people interested in taking the class.

    At 7:00 pm we will wrap things up and send people home or to the other music activities within Cokesbury.

    This exciting new event is the result of a decision by the Church Council to focus all of our energies on a single ministry for this year.  You and your family are invited to attend every Wednesday evening as we eat, fellowship and learn together.

    Cokesbury Online Giving

    Online GivingCokesbury is committed to Care, Share and Serve in the name of Jesus in our world!   There are so many ministries and so many activities going on through our household of faith so funds are always needed.

    All of these activities and ministries need prayer, dedicated staff, a army of faith-full volunteers and money to reach-out to our community and world for Jeus!   However, sometimes we need to be reminded to give on a regular basis to your church.

    The ministry of our church depends on regular giving by the members.  If you sometimes forget to bring cash or your checkbook to church, we have a solution for you: Online Giving!

    You can make a one-time gift, or set up a regular giving schedule. It is up to you. There is a simple form to fill out and then the rest will be taken care of by the banks. Please consider this option for your giving to Cokesbury.

    You may sign up by clicking on this text. Any questions may be directed to Gloria Hurley. Thank you.
