When the cold of winter arrives in North Texas, most of us can just turn up the thermostat, and throw on a warm coat to keep ourselves comfortable when we leave the house. Many in our community don’t have that luxury. If you were homeless, living out of a car, or struggling to make ‘ends meet,’ the solution is not so simple. While we can’t solve all those issues, we can help by sharing the rich blessings we have received.
Methodist Men invite all to join in supporting less fortunate families with children, the homeless, and others in need as winter weather ‘knocks at our door.’ And we encourage you to invite your neighbors to join our Coats Against the Cold initiative. Our goal this year is to provide some 200 new coats to underprivileged children, and to collect and distribute over a thousand ‘gently used’ coats, sweaters, hoodies, gloves and other cold weather clothing items.
We can easily meet these goals with the help of every member of our Church Family, and the assistance of our neighbors, and our friends. We warmly welcome the participation of all as we seek to share God’s blessings with those who need our help!
Donations can be monetary or cold weather clothing. To give online, please click here. Donations (cold weather clothing or monetary) can also be dropped off at the church (1000 Church Street, Colleyville, Texas 76034) during office hours (Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or on Sunday morning. Thank you for your support!

·techteam·Comments Off on Breakthrough: Women’s Summer Bible Study 2021
When: Monday July 12 – August 16 from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Where: Hybrid (FL204 and Zoom)
Have you ever felt that being a good Christian means you’ve got to follow a bunch of rules and measure up? If so, you aren’t alone! In this six-week Bible Study of Galatians, Barb Roose shows us that even believers in the early church struggled to let go of rule-keeping and performance in order to embrace God’s free gift of grace. Through this study, we will discover how to stop trying to measure up and embrace God’s grace and promise of freedom.
This Bible Study will be a hybrid format, which means you can participate in-person or online via Zoom. Those who meet in person will gather in FL204 at the church. Pastor Katie Newkirk will facilitate this Bible Study. Sign up here to participate.

Last year we planned to begin The Taking Next Step Stewardship campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity, on Sunday, March 15, 2020, but the COVID pandemic required us to pivot at the last minute and postpone the campaign to Lent 2021. We are excited to now officially kick-off the campaign and series!
We invite you to join us Sundays, February 28 – March 21 for our Taking the Next Step campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity. In this series, we acknowledge that living generously is an essential part of following Christ. Giving is not about the church’s need for money but about our need to give to grow in our faith. Throughout this series, we will discover ways God uses our giving to change us, our community, and our world.
To help us all grow deeper in faith during this series, we will be sending out daily devotionals from Robert Schnase’s book Practicing Extravagant Generosity beginning on Monday, February 21. You may have received the hard copy of the book last year, but if you can’t find it, don’t worry, we will be sending the devotionals each morning to your email.

·techteam·Comments Off on The Longest Lent Study
When: Monday nights from February 22 – March 29 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Zoom
Throughout the history of Christianity, Lent has been a season of “No.” It has been a season in which followers of Jesus have said “no” to themselves, their desires, and their wants through fasting and spiritual practices. 2020 pushed much of the world into The Longest Lent, a full year of “no.” As we enter Lent 2021, it is a time to say “yes” by preparing ourselves for the new beginning Christ is bringing out of this year of “no.” In our Longest Lent Study, you will be invited to explore a series of faith-filled “Yeses.”
Saying “Yes” to Sabbath… after a year of lockdown
Saying “Yes” to Healing… and wholeness
Saying “Yes” to Praying…for our enemies
Saying “Yes” to reading the Bible…between the lines
Saying “Yes” to restoring…relationships with others
The Longest Lent study will be on Monday nights from February 22-March 29 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. on Zoom, led by Pastor Katie Newkirk. Sign up online or call the church office.

·techteam·Comments Off on Women’s Bible Study: “I’m Waiting God”
When: Mondays, January 11 – February 1 from 7 – 8 pm via Zoom
In this four-week Bible study, Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait on God— women such as Hannah, Ruth, Martha, and the unnamed woman who suffered for over a decade with a painful medical condition. If you’ve felt anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed because God isn’t giving you what you want, their stories will breathe fresh hope and practical next steps in your life.
Together we will discover that there is goodness and blessing to be found in times of waiting, including a closer relationship with God than we’ve ever dared to dream. Pastor Katie will facilitate this study. You can sign up online or call the church office. Each participant will need to purchase their own workbook. You can purchase the book from a local, Black-owned bookstore or on Amazon.
