Mission: "To make disciples who live transformed lives, influencing their generation and the next with God's love."

Trial Guide for Mon, 6/10: Acts 2:17-21 Recall Acts 1:8 as you read. How does this prophecy connect with Jesus’ pronouncement of what we will be? What does Joel’s prophecy add to the meaning of being a witness? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+2%3A17-21&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Sat, 6/8: John 6:1-13 – We tell our kids to share. Sometimes we forget to live the message ourselves. The boy (unnamed) in this story not only learned this lesson, he extended it from sharing to sacrifice. He gave what he had with no guarantee that he would even get anything back, for in that day it was customary for the men to eat first, and women and children ate what was left. Yet he still gave. What might you offer to Jesus in order to meet a need?

Trail Guide for Fri, 6/7: Luke 1:26-38 – Another familiar story. We take for granted that Mary was likely between 12-14 at the time. Fear, anxiety, and questions precede an amazing response of faith. The short time it takes to tell/read this story masks the time it probably took for Mary to process all that was happening. Patience. Openness. Persistence. The path to trust takes time.

Trail Guide for Thurs, 6/6: Daniel 1:1-21 – Daniel and his friends were likely between 8 and 10 years old as this story begins. Consider the choices children and youth are presented with today. Here’s an example of having the courage to “go against the flow” because of their religious beliefs. How do we live with courage and teach this to our children/youth?

Trail Guide for Wed, 6/5: 1 Samuel 3:1-14, 19-21 – Samuel was only a boy, yet he was given responsibility. What role did his “ministry” play in preparing him to hear from God? When God began to speak to him, he had no clue what was happening & turned to Eli. How might you be like Eli to one or some of the youth in our church, helping them to make sense of what God might be doing/want to do in their life?

Trail Guide for Tues, 6/4: 2 Kings 5:1-15a – This story is lesser known. A young girl, taken as a captive in war and likely a slave, plays a critical role in this tale. Young or old, are you willing to tell of God’s power to help? To heal? To forgive? To restore? To save? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Kings+5%3A1-15a&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Mon, 6/3: 1 Samuel 17:32-37, 41-47 – Here’s a story that many are familiar with. What about David challenges or inspires you? Do you ever see yourself in Saul or Goliath with respect to judging others because of their size or age (or other…)? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Samuel+17%3A32-47&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Sat, 6/1, 2 Corinthians 6:11 – In the body of Christ – in Leesburg UMC – are our hearts open wide to others such that we are willing to speak freely to them about the gospel, and the amazing grace of God? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+6%3A11&version=NIV

May 19, Heritage Sunday, the Rev. Al Horton joined us to portray the early Methodist circuit rider, Robert Strawbridge, who is believed to be the one who started the Methodist Society in Leesburg, around 1765-1766.

Trail Guide for Fri, 5/31, 2 Corinthians 6:4 – Is Paul bragging here? Or is he instead lifting up an example for others to follow? As a servant of God, how is your life a commendation to the gospel? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+6%3A4&version=NIV

Feeling the desire to help those affected by the recent severe weather in the US? UMCOR is a great way to help!

We are in prayer for the communities hit by the most recent round of severe weather in the United States and are in close communication with the impacted conferences and their disaster response coordinators.

In Arkansas, all Emergency Response Teams are prepared to respond to the record-breaking flooding in communities along the Arkansas River. Once waters recede, clean-outs will be the primary response. UMCOR cleaning and hygiene kits have been requested from the Sager Brown Depot and conference trailers are stocked with clean up equipment.

In Indiana and Ohio, assessments continue on damage done by devastating tornadoes. Emergency Response Teams are on standby in West Ohio and space for volunteers is being coordinated in Indiana.
For up-to-date information on UMCOR’s current disaster response efforts, visit this page: https://www.umcmission.org/umcor/serve/us-disaster-response

Trail Guide for Thurs, 5/30, 2 Corinthians 6:3 – In the present context, consistent with use elsewhere, a “stumbling block” is something/anything that might hinder one’s acceptance of God’s grace. Love for neighbor should lead us to smooth the way instead of placing obstacles… https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+6%3A3&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Wed, 5/29, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 – Grace is “received” not earned or owed. It is a gift, freely given. What do you think it means to receive God’s grace “in vain”? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+6%3A1-2&version=NIV

Sundays in Summer: it's getting closer! Starts June 16th, read more here: http://www.leesburgumc.org/sis

Trail Guide for Tues, 5/28, Matthew 5:14-16 - Jesus said, “You (actually, “Y’all”) are the light of the world.” Not, “You need to try to be…” The question is, are your shades up? Or down? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+5%3A14-16&version=NIV

Trail guide for Mon, 5/27, 1 Thessalonians 2:8b – What’s your story of God’s grace? Are you delighted – or hesitant – to share your story with others? Do your neighbors know your story? Do you know theirs? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Thessalonians+2%3A8&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Sat, 5/25, Romans 12:17-21: Do not repay… do what is right… live at peace… do not take revenge… overcome evil with good… How is God calling you to apply this in your life?

It may be a holiday weekend, but we'll still be here on Sunday worshiping the God who created sabbath rest. If you're in town, we hope you'll join us! http://www.leesburgumc.org/

Trail Guide for Fri, 5/24, Romans 12:14-16: In the church at Rome were Jewish converts and Gentile converts. They did not always see eye to eye. How might we apply these words today?

Keep up with what your friends are talking about. Use this link to hear from Rev Al Horton, our guest speaker who reenacted the role of a "Circuit Rider" for worship last Sunday.

Trail Guide for Thurs, 5/23, Romans 12:9-13, Listen as you read. What might the Spirit of God be trying to say to you through the Word of God?

Trail Guide for Wed, 5/22, Joshua 2:8-11: Rahab, a resident of Jericho, helped the Israelite spies who were her enemies. Why? She recognized that God was at work. How might her example and perspective help you deal with difficult people in your life? Where might God be at work?

Trail Guide for Tues, 5/21, Matthew 5:43-45: Do you have any enemies? Who is the one who disagrees with you? Has a different opinion on an important issue? Who criticizes you? Who makes life difficult for you? How will you love them?

Did you miss church for Mother's day observances with your family? Well, here's your chance to catch up with the Mother's Day message given by our own Ms. Jill Ryan. (Yesterday's message will be available soon) http://leesburgumc.org/pages/page.asp?page_id=292076&programId=273038

Trail Guide for Mon, 5/20, 1 Peter 3:8-12: Listen as you read. What truth or response do you hear the Holy Spirit whispering to you? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Peter+3%3A8-12&version=NIV

Trail Guide for Sat, 5/18: Matthew 4:18-22 When Jesus called his disciples, before they could do what he ultimately wanted them to do, they first had to… what? Follow him. Spend time with him. Learn from him. Obey him. The same is true for you and me. In what ways are you actively and intentionally following Jesus?

Trail Guide for Fri, 5/17: Luke 1:38 I have never been visited by an angel, that I am aware of. I know of others who have. Have you? How would recognize an angel? Would you respond as Mary did? Whether or not an angel appears, we can still say with Mary: “May it be, O God. I am your servant.”

Trail Guide for Thurs, 5/16: Jonah 1:1-6 What a great story! God apparently saw potential in Jonah. However, he rejected God’s call and tried to get as far away from Nineveh as possible. Have you ever been reluctant, or even resistant, to what you sensed God calling you to do?

Trail Guide for Wed, 5/15: Esther 4:12-16 What character qualities do you see in Esther, as she wrestles with what to do? While God is not mentioned directly, the clear implication is that God is at work. Has following God ever led you to a place or conversation that called for courage in order to respond?

Here’s a sneak peek at the fun that awaits you THIS Thursday at our “Building and Bonding Night Out”. We’ll have snacks, activities and giveaways for our LUMC and Great Beginnings families + their friends.

Reserve your spot and then plan to join us on Thursday from 5:30-7:30PM in the AG Building

Trail Guide for Tues, 5/14: 1 Samuel 3:1-11a Have you ever wondered if God is speaking to you? How would you know? Samuel relied on an older person’s insights to help him. Note Samuel’s response once he believed that this was God speaking to him. (I love that God did not give up after the first or second try)

Trail Guide for Mon, 5/13: Genesis 12:1-8 Read and reflect on God’s call to Abram and Sarai. How do you think that call was communicated? What sort of hardships do you imagine them facing? Responding to God’s call does not mean life becomes easy… where and how have you faced hardship?

Trail Guide for Sat, 5/11: Romans 5:5 As with last week, read and remember that you are created and called to be a conduit of God’s love and grace – not a reservoir. Grace and peace!

Trail Guide for Fri, 5/10: Luke 10:25-28, 37 How do these verses help you to know what is most important?

Trail Guide for Thurs, 5/9: Luke 10:42 “… one thing is necessary…” When it comes to living as a disciple of Jesus, what “one thing” is necessary for you? What are you neglecting because you get distracted? Make it a point to name and hold close the “one thing” as the main thing.

Trail Guide for Wed, 5/8: Luke 10:38-42 The story of Mary and Martha. Luke tells us that Martha was “distracted” from spending time with Jesus. The difficulty was not her preparations but her distraction. Can you name your distractions? Those things that pre-occupy your mind and your time, distracting you from listening to and hearing from God; from beholding and thus seeing God at work?

Trail guide for Tues, 5/7 Mark 5:21-36 Interruptions! Imagine, Jesus was on his way to meet a critical need. However, he made time to stop and respond to another person in need. On a deeper level, we cannot overlook that this was a woman in need. Shunned by the community, devalued because of her sex, Jesus nevertheless made time for her. Who are the shunned, devalued, overlooked whom God may be calling you to love by making time for them?
