Can You Cook a Turkey?

The Community Thanksgiving Meal is sponsored by the Hardee County Ministerial Association and the Hardee Help Center serving more than 600 meals in Hardee County on Thanksgiving Day. Dinner is served from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church of Wauchula (207 North 7th Avenue, Wauchula).
We’re looking for volunteers to cook an already purchased turkey this Thanksgiving. FCC has committed to cook 45 turkeys for the meal, so your help would be greatly appreciated! The turkeys will be provided and will need to be picked up here at the church on Monday, November 19th, between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. All you have to do is pick up your turkey(s), cook it/them, and deliver it/them HOT to the Methodist Church on the corner of Palmetto & 7th Avenue, Thanksgiving morning between 8:30-8:45 AM (PLEASE NO EARLIER THAN 8:30 AM!! AND PLEASE ENSURE ALL TURKEYS ARE FULLY COOKED!!!) They will take it from there, carving it, getting it ready to be served. You can cook it any way you like…deep fried, grilled, oven baked…any way you want and as many as you want!

New Lifegroup Series

Beginning Monday, November 12th, the lifegroup led by Jim See will begin a new Andy Stanley 5-part series entitled “An Unexpected Christmas.”
We all have an uncle or cousin we whisper about behind closed doors. A relative or two we try to avoid at gatherings. Jesus also had a few shady characters in his family! In this new series we’ll be introduced to a few of Jesus’ questionable relatives and the important role they played in the Christmas story.

9 New Communities, 3 New Staff, 1 More Country to Explore

Celebrate With Us!

9 New Communities Experiencing The Gospel

Two weeks ago we ran our second assessment for potential church planters. Our goal with the assessment process is to affirm the vision that God has given to couples to make disciples in a particular community that God has put on their heart and mind. Last week we had 9 more couples from 9 new cities come and share stories and ideas of how to best make disciples in their contexts. God continues to raise up leaders who are being used to bring the GOOD NEWS into their communities and in their own languages. It is a beautiful and incredible process to be a part of!

We are adding three more staff.

As I continue to build out our church planting team we are adding the following positions beginning January of 2019:

  • Administrator/Coordinator.
  • Part-Time Partnership.
  • Part-Time Partnership.
These are key positions in helping us continue to equip local leaders to start new churches who make disciples, are on mission, and are multiplying leaders.

Puerto Rico Exploratory Trip

On Monday I will be traveling with Eduard Gabriel, Elvis Batista, and Isaias Gabriel to Puerto Rico. Our goal is to explore the city of San Juan and surrounding communities to see if we might be able to help some Puerto Ricans begin a church planting movement in their country. Please be in prayer for discernment, understanding, and clarity for our team. This trip may end up as a trip to encourage our brothers and sisters here…but…it could be something huge…come on church!!!!
