UCG Big Sandy plans fellowship weekend
BIG SANDY, Texas--The United Church of God Big Sandy invites everyone to a fellowship weekend Dec. 24-26. (The UCG Big Sandy is not affiliated with the UCG-AIA.)
"Last year we hosted a similar type of weekend at the same time of year," commented Dave Havir, pastor of the congregation.
"It was very successful, so people have asked us to do something again this winter."
Mr. Havir has noticed a trend, he said. "Many of the interdependent congregations who associate together like to get together at least twice a year.
"Besides the Feast of Tabernacles, people like to get together during the winter break when they have off from work and school.
"If our building can help to encourage worship, fellowship and educational opportunities among brethren, we are happy to help."
The activities this year will be similar to last year's. Here is a tentative schedule:
"There has also been talk about using this weekend to discuss common-interest projects for interdependent congregations," said Mr. Havir.
"There will be much time for fellowshipping. But there can also be time for discussing the practical projects we are doing together. We can discuss Feast plans, family socials, teen opportunities and the like."
People with musical talent are invited to participate in the special-music service. To volunteer, call (800) 946-5545 (daytime only).
