Revive

We live in a time of already and not yet. We have the hope of heaven, but acknowledge that things are not as they should be currently. We see beauty all around us, but also feel deep pain. We can see glimpses of the Lord working, but sometimes wonder why He seems so far off. However, the message of the gospel is that God’s kingdom is being established in us…right now. When Christ died on the cross and was resurrected, He brought forth the new creation into the present. Heaven spilling out across the earth. As we learn to abide more fully in Jesus, we start to live our lives in a way that brings the goodness of heaven to the needs of the earth. In Christ’s death, Heaven and Earth met. In Christ’s return, Heaven and Earth will be fully brought back together. Until that day, we do our part to bring Heaven to the Earth.

Camp cost is $350/student.

Confirmation Retreat
Jun

1:00 PM13:00

Confirmation Retreat

This retreat is specifically and prayerfully planned to offer the love, grace, forgiveness, and salvation in Jesus Christ for kids as they reach the age when they can approach the eternal truths of God and make a conscious decision for themselves to be a follower of Jesus. Confirmation is also a time to teach and experience the grace of God we have available to us in a community of faith called the Church.  Through this annual Confirmation weekend, we also want to create for students an opportunity to publicly profess their faith in the 9:30 worship service on June 9th.  With your approval, we will also ask your child about joining Navarre UMC as a full member.  This experience for these students is also a wonderful entry point for families of the kids not already connected here.

Our Youth Director, Nathan Persell, other adult leaders, and Pastor Alan will be sharing and showing that all persons in faith in Christ are called to be actively engaged in Christianity as a way of life through The Church.  We will learn our Affirmation of Faith and discuss its meaning.  We will talk about the meaning and experience of the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Finally, our kids will learn about the Sacrament of Baptism in our Church tradition (sprinkling, immersion, and pouring) and be offered the opportunity for Baptism if not already baptized.  If desired, baptism can happen at church Sunday, June 9th by sprinkling, or by immersion in the Gulf at any time you wish to arrange it.

Chainsaw Safety and Use Training

Chainsaw Safety and Use Training

Chainsaw Safety and Use Training - Navarre UMC - April 6, 2019

 

Location:  Navarre UMC, 9474 Navarre Pkwy, Navarre, 32566-2940
Date: Saturday, April 6, 2019
Time: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Further instructions will be sent to registrants via email. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

The purpose of the Alabama-West Florida Conference Disaster Recovery Ministry Chain Saw Course is to teach Early Response Team members a consistent and safe method of chainsaw operation. Many of you have used chainsaws most of your adult lives and feel that there is not much to be learned. At the completion of this course, we believe you will think it was time well spent.

In order to use a chainsaw in a disaster situation through the United Methodist Church, you must have taken this course and the Basic Early Response Team course (ERT class can be taken after Chainsaw Course). You will receive a chainsaw certified badge which you can take with you into all disaster response situations.
 
The morning session will cover basic chainsaw use and safety.  The afternoon session will be in the field using chainsaws. You may bring your own chainsaw and Personal Protection Equipment  (PPE - chaps, gloves, helmet (with ear muffs and face guard)), if you wish.  If you do not want to transport gas and oil, 50:1 gas:oil mix and bar oil will be provided.  If you do not have or do not wish to bring a chainsaw, saws and PPE will be available for practice.
 
Cost: $45.   Lunch, breaks, gas mix and bar oil provided.  Participation limited to 30 registrants.  Must be at least 18 years old.

Early Response Team Training
Feb

9:00 AM09:00

Early Response Team Training


 When disaster strikes, the local church usually provides the first response to members of the congregation in need. This basic understanding—that disaster response is local—helps form a foundation for UMCOR’s national training and response. UMCOR equips United Methodists to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters, supporting conference and church ministries on disaster response so that they can be the hands and feet of Christ in a hurting world. 

Participants in this training course learn the basics of disaster response, including how to stabilize and secure homes safely, and how to work effectively with survivors and others on the response team. This standardized class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge. This $25 course will be Feb. 23rd from 9:00-4:30 at our church. To register, please fill out the form below for each person attending.

Operation Christmas Child

Pack a Shoe Box - Bring a Child the Gospel

The shoe boxes you can help pack will be sent around the world, when they get there to their destination, they do more than simply provide gifts to children. They provide the possibilities for children to hear the Gospel for the first time.

  • Pastors around the world host shoebox distributions in places where people may not know Christ and invite them to follow Him. Other churches use the boxes as resources for outreach in orphanages and other at-risk areas. In many places, they also offer The Greatest Gift, a Gospel story booklet Samaritan’s Purse developed for shoebox recipients.

  • As a result of what they learn in The Greatest Journey, boys and girls grow in Christ and share with friends and family. The students also invite others to their graduations where the Gospel is shared. This often brings parents, siblings, and friends to accept Christ and become active members in the local church. Families are reached, churches grow, new churches are started, and communities are transformed.

How to Pack a Shoebox

Click here to download the instructions.

  1. Find a Shoebox - Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.

  2. Girl or Boy? - Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.

  3. Fill with Gifts - Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal. Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. Click Here for suggestions.

  4. Pray - Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

  5. Follow Your Box Labels - Donate $7 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.

  6. Drop-Off - Bring your box to the church on by Monday, November 13 to the church office between 8:00a-5:00p.
