Anyone have a good place to get shirts made?
Looking forward to another great message from Pastor Blair as we stop, look and listen to our inner voice in our new solitude.
I am very grateful to Pastor Blair and everyone who brings us the opportunity to worship on line. It is a blessing to hear the Word of God even when we cannot gather for worship
Shhh. (I'm not suppose to be here). But you know it's the BEST place for sunrise!
Hi, everyone, Pastor Cathy here! One of my Holy Week traditions is to watch the movie, "The Gospel of John," (2003) which is available on Amazon Prime. It's rated PG-13 for the crucifixion scenes, so careful with the young ones and sensitive children. Watch it with me, this week, and post your thoughts - I hope you will decide to make this a tradition with me!
Today is the birthday of Carolyn Langlotz. She passed several years ago but she was the first person I met at the church. She welcomed me and always made sure to visit with me each time I came to church. A great example of the difference one person can make. RIP Carolyn.
I wished I lived there so I could be a part of your Church!! A 3 hour drive from De Kalb, TX is a bit far!!

We are an inclusive Christian community where all are welcome. Nobody is perfect here, but being a part of this place brings out the best of us.

We are intentional about our faith development: we ask questions, develop deep and lasting friendships, and work together to make a positive difference in our community. Here we are learning to love with our whole hearts. We give and receive forgiveness and experience God's grace through bread and cup, study and service, prayer and people. Our hope is that we reflect God's love and care for all. May you be filled with peace and the knowledge that you are loved, accepted, and a part of something bigger than yourself.

Operating as usual

Today we salute everyone who has served from our own church community and beyond. We are grateful for your selflessness and honor you today. #veteransday

Our spiritual journey is both individual and corporate. We need each other, and we especially need each other now. We need to remind ourselves that God is still here, with us.

In this two-part retreat, we will hear from encouraging speakers including Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes, Jen Hatmaker, and Rev. Dr. Neichelle Guidry, among others. We will hear music and poetry from Nichole Nordeman and Propaganda, and our time together will be uplifted with spiritual practices and a short worship service that sends us out to the world with hope.

Join other women from the Arapaho UMC community in a 2-part retreat: “God is Still Here.” The online retreat is scheduled for Friday night, 7:00 - 10:00 pm on November 13, and continues Saturday morning, November 14, from 9:00 am - noon.

Are you signed up for the November Book Club? Aaron Manes has written a short reflection after reading Rob Bell's "Everything Is Spiritual" book - go here to read: https://www.arapahoumc.org/blog/why-everything-is-spiritual

arapahoumc.org That is the work of spirituality. Richard Rohr is quoted as saying, “God comes to us disguised as our life.” This is so true. So often we go to church or some other holy experience and hope we experience God there. The reality is that our lives are holy. We are God’s beloved and that is the go...

Do you ever wonder what your purpose on earth is? Are we all more connected than we know? On November 19 at 7:00 pm, come discuss Rob Bell's new book: "Everything is Spiritual: Who We Are and What We Are Doing Here” on Zoom (Led by Aaron Manes).

In the book, Bell explores how ideas about creation, love and connection shaped him and how they shape every one of us. Bell observes that more than anything, people want to understand their purpose here on earth. And when you embrace who and where you come from, including your wounds, your pains and your regrets, you will discover that lurking there in the mess of life is an invitation to expand - just as the universe has been expanding for 13 billion years.

The Arapaho UMC Pumpkin Patch was a huge success! Thank you to all of the volunteers and to the #RichardsonTX & #NTX friends who came and supported the patch through buying a pumpkin! Your support raised over $35,000 for the Navajo farmers in New Mexico and created over $20,000 for local charity and ministry partners.

a poem written by an Arapaho UMC member in response to the "Good Trouble" message on Sunday.

Rocking the Boat

The psalmist proclaimed
man is only a little lower
than the angels, but this one Pharaoh,
we’ve forgotten his exact name,
could make the Israelites cower.
Into the earth his foot pressed their faces,
and their cries began to turn into prayers
as brick by brick they added the layers
to Egypt’s towering pyramids of power.

Society proclaimed
they were only a little higher
than slaves, but Shiphrah and Puah,
we remember both their names.
These rebel midwives, tellers of such ethical lies,
baby by baby they preserved each little life,
and the one crying in a basket on the river
would become the answer to Israel’s prayers.
Moses’ wake was already parting the waters.

Your voice matters. Your vote matters.

#GivingTuesday is a generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Created in 2012, this day of generosity has grown exponentially since its beginning and this year Arapaho UMC is inviting you to prayerfully consider making a special gift.

2020 forced us reconsider how church will be a part of our lives. During this time AUMC has continued to grow because of the warmth and love this community shows on a daily basis. As the leadership and staff look ahead into 2021 we are striving to create more connections for this Arapaho UMC family and those who need our support - no matter where they live. So, on #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, December 1) you are invited to help expand the connection of your church by making a gift toward the Arapaho UMC Ministry Budget which will help us reach those who need the love and support this community provides. We will be sharing more about #GivingTuesday plans in coming weeks.

Making a scene. Breaking the law. Living in faith. The late Rep. John Lewis, pioneer of the Civil Rights Movement, once said that we are called to make "good trouble, necessary trouble," for righteousness to take root in our world. This November, we'll take a closer look at the rule-breakers and trouble-makers celebrated in Scripture, and how their examples can guide us in living as people of faith. What "good trouble" is God calling you to make?

You can attend at 9:00 am outdoors. Watch and interact at 11:00 am on Facebook Live or watch the stream via Youtube or at www.arapahoumc.org/watch.

Beginning this Sunday (Nov. 1 at 9:00 am) - The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7, contains some of Jesus most profound and most memorable teachings. What might these teachings have mean to his disciples, and to the others who first heard them? How do they enhance our reading of the rest of the Gospel of Matthew, and how do they speak across the centuries to listeners today? How, if we pay careful attention to his words, does Jesus provide us a road map to living as God would have us live?

You are invited to come and share discussion in this six-week series based on the book and DVD by popular theologian and professor, Dr. Amy-Jill Levine.

Maybe you have just learned your #Enneagram number or maybe you have done more Enneagram work than anyone you know. No matter your Enneagram experience, you are invited to a special evening to discuss how the Enneagram can be used as a pathway to profound spiritual transformation in your life by knowing yourself. This Thursday, October 29 at 7:00 pm CST, author A.J. Sherrill will introduce and discuss his new book “The Enneagram For Spiritual Formation” with some time for Q&A as well.

A forward-leaning, affirming Christian Community in Richardson, TX.

Arapaho United Methodist Church is a creative, constructive, Christian community committed to becoming more like Christ. We envision a Christian community of transformed people who embody God’s love and work together in the Spirit to transform the world, and a place where all are welcome.

Creative: We pay attention to the movement of the Holy Spirit in our lives, the life of our community, and the world and we respond by partnering with God in the work to make all things new. We make space for trying new things: new ideas, new ministries, new expressions of faith.

Constructive: We ask questions, question assumptions, and engage in conversation and contemplation to construct a faith that aligns with our experiences of God’s presence in the world. God’s grace makes it possible for us to grow and change; we are always open to learning and becoming deeper disciples.

Christian: We believe in Jesus Christ, put our whole trust in his grace, and by his grace we are actively seeking to become more like him: more loving, more compassionate, more generous.
