Herndon, VA 20170
There's a saying that goes "All windows look out on the same world." If that's true, it means that the "window" of Opera, the "window" of Rock, the "window" of Broadway, and the "window" of the New Testament all look out on the same world. Each, in its own way, is trying to make sense of the world, trying to capture its truths, trying to help us understand the meaning of life's joys and sorrows. Building on that insight, we will begin a new series of sermons this January titled "The Gospel and Broadway." During the sermon series we will use a number of Broadway songs as lenses to explore human dreams and emotions and see how they intersect the deep truths of the Gospel. Please make plans now to join us for this exciting series.
In July, Herndon UMC Youth (rising 7th grade through completed 12th grade) will be working with REACH (Real Experiences Affecting Change) to transform homes, lives and entire communities around Roanoke, VA. The trip is scheduled for July 18-24. Projects may include--home repair, river clean up, children's activities, community gardens, hunger relief, and assisting the elderly. They will worship in a variety of locations throughout Roanoke, and will share in "resourceful" meals. The cost will be $250. Interested youth should turn in a registration form and a deposit of $50 by 11 Jan. The other payments of $100 will be due 1 Mar and 1 May.
