Are You Ready for Fifth Sunday?

5th Sunday for the:

Florida United Methodist Children’s Home

There's still time to help our children prepare for their new school year!  Your gift can provide the necessary supplies, additional tutoring, and other resources necessary to make them successful.


And it’s not just the youth living on our Enterprise campus.  It is also the children at our Madison Youth Ranch, as well as Foster children we care for across the state, who need supplies for the new school year.

Thank you for your continued support of the children in our care!

Below is the outline for Sunday 08.30.2020. Last week God help us, this week God leads us to help other. My intention with these outlines is twofold. First, that it will help you follow along with the message and to write down what God might be saying to you. Second, that you will refer back to this later in the week as you think more on what God said to you on Sunday through the message. See you Sunday at 10am – together on-line and in-person.

Your friend on the journey,

Pastor Mike Briggs
