From aiding those experiencing hardship to supporting educational initiatives and community-building endeavors, this offering embodies our commitment to serving and uplifting our neighbors in Mariposa.

This Months Scripture
THIS MONTH'S SCRIPTURE REFLECTION

Revelation 2:1-7
2 "To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
"This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and who walks among the seven gold lampstands. 2 I know what you have done; I know how hard you have worked and how patient you have been. I know that you cannot tolerate evil people and that you have tested those who say they are apostles but are not, and have found out that they are liars. 3 You are patient, you have suffered for my sake, and you have not given up. 4 But this is what I have against you: you do not love me now as you did at first. 5 Think how far you have fallen! Turn from your sins and do what you did at first. If you don't turn from your sins, I will come to you and take your lampstand from its place. 6 But this is what you have in your favor: you hate what the Nicolaitans do, as much as I do.
7 "If you have ears, then, listen to what the Spirit says to the churches!
"To those who win the victory I will give the right to eat the fruit of the tree of life that grows in the Garden of God.

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY - TGIF KIDS CLUB

Join us for an exciting journey of learning and growth as we gear up to kick off the Friday afternoon children's program at Mariposa United Methodist Church. Starting right after school on September 8, this engaging program is a wonderful opportunity for children to explore their faith in a nurturing environment.

As we embark on this meaningful endeavor, we're reaching out to our community for support. If you feel called to contribute and be a part of this ministry, we encourage you to connect with Gussie Kidd. Rest assured, no prior experience is required as comprehensive training will be provided to equip you to work effectively with the children.

Looking Ahead

Ash Wednesday
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14. There will be worship services at noon in the Prayer Garden (weather permitting) and at 4:30 pm in the sanctuary. In remembering the sacrifice of Jesus, Christians can do the discipline of GIVING UP/GIVING TO during the 40+6 days of Lent. Usually this has meant giving up a favorite food or indulgence, a bad habit, AND giving to a proactive spiritual self-development discipline like Bible reading/memorization, a physical exercise, volunteering at or giving to a charity. Start thinking and be sensitive to God’s prompting if this is something that you are interested in to do for Lent. Lent concludes on Easter Sunday, March 31.

All-Church Work Day
All-Church Work Day kicks off on March 23. A sign-up sheet with detailed facility needs is in the conference room, and tasks can be started/accomplished before or reasonably after March 16.
