HEALING & RESTORATION SERVICE
Posted November 25, 2015, 3:33 pm
MONDAY, DECEMBER 21This is a service of healing and wholeness with Holy Communion and the anointing with oil.
MEMORIAL UMC PRAYER CHAPEL
While the month of December is a time of hope and celebration, for many it is a time when loss is felt more acutely. Anointing with oil is an ancient practice of the Christian Church for the body, mind and spirit. Healing is not magic, but underlying it is the great mystery of Godís love. While we are not given a promise that we will be spared suffering, we have been promised that God will be with us in our suffering. Trusting that promise, we are enabled to recognize Godís sustaining presence.
All are welcomed to this time set aside for our restoration.CHRISTMAS EVE COMMUNION

Posted October 6, 2015, 2:19 pm
"For unto us a child is born..." Isaiah 9:5During the Advent season of 2015, Memorial United Methodist Church will bring the little town of Bethlehem to our very own THOMASVILLE. Our goal is to share the Christmas story in an immersive way, with all of the sights and sounds and even smells that may have been encountered in first-century Bethlehem. We will do this through a drive-through Nativity experience, called "What Child is This...The Journey to Bethlehem"..
A DRIVE-THRU NATIVITY
FREE TO EVERYONE
We will transform our parking lot into a village, our congregation, into citizens of Bethlehem and the community of Thomasville into a place where God's love is encountered in a real way.
WHAT CHILD IS THIS will be presented on the nights of December 11, 12, 13 (6:00-9:00pm each night). We hope that you will join us as we answer the ultimate question of the manger: WHAT CHILD IS THIS? May we find the answer as God uses our church to share this wonderful gift with the Thomasville community!
