WEEKLY PROGRAMS @ First San Leandro

ADVENT STUDY

“The Purpose of Christmas” by Rick Warren 

 

Regardless of your background, religion, problems, or circumstances, Christmas really is the best news you could get. In his powerful yet compassionate voice, Rick Warren explains how God designed Christmas to meet your three deepest needs and how understanding and receiving God’s three Christmas gifts to you will transform your life forever.

Come join us on Thursday night on Zoom at 7pm for three weeks  (12/2, 12/9, 12/16) using the worship link on zoom to study and reflect on the meaning of Christmas together in preparation of the birth of Christ.

FAITH AND LIFE CONVERSATION

 Join our Wednesday Night Conversations on Faith and Life by Zoom, from 7-8 PM every Wednesday. Contact Dennis Borruso  at dborruso@sbcglobal.net for the Zoom log/call-in information.

 

CENTERING MEDITATION PRAYER

Are you interested in learning how to quiet your mind and become more centered in daily life? Are you feeling a desire to deepen your prayer or learn about Christian meditation? Centering prayer is a method of prayer, which prepares us to experience God’s presence within us. This practice is traditionally called contemplative prayer. It is the opening of the mind and heart—of one’s whole being—to God, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions.

Please join us each Wednesday at 8:30 PM at Saturday at 9 AM  and enter into a deep and profound relationship with God.

 *********************

 As people of faith, we encourage the exploration of our collective responsibility to each other, particularly in these times.  Join us on this journey, by doing the following:

Become better-informed and educated about the roots of racism and white supremacy in the history of the United States, and how you can help create a different future for our nation. 

Join our Wednesday Night Conversations on Faith and Life by Zoom, from 7-8 PM every Wednesday. Contact Office@fumcsl.org for the Zoom log/call-in information.

Don’t be silent: add you voice to those of others who are speaking out at this time.

Pray for peace, justice, and the eradication of the sin of racism from our systems and society.

 

 

 

For your consideration:

Gen. 50: 19-21  Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done; “the saving of many lives”. So don’t be afraid I will provide for you and your children.

Our journey is sometimes riddled with struggles and obstacles. We constantly look back at what we should have done. We look back when what we did is not Christ like. The principle here in Genesis is to find life, holiness and salvation by being in the place of God. Here at FUMC we know it is a personal journey but we assist you in finding that place.
