Worship Info for 7/26/2020

Worship Info for Sunday 7/26/2020 and This Week’s Group Meetings

Good Friday afternoon!! I hope you’ve had a great week!!
This Sunday we will finish our sermon series called “Three Simple Rules.” We’ll look at the third rule, which is called “Stay in Love With God.”

I also want to remind our families with young children…we are having Children’s Church via Zoom right after worship. The Zoom log-in information was sent in the original email, so please let us know if you’re not receiving our email broadcasts.

Do you miss seeing some of your church family members?? Why not join us for our Meet & Greet at 8:30 am Sunday morning?? This Zoom meeting is open to all. (The Zoom log-in information was sent in the original email)

Here’s what you need for Sunday. Our worship service will begin with our Prelude at 9:30 AM and will be broadcast over Facebook Live and also through our weblink. See below for the different ways to join.

Here’s Your Digital Bulletin for Sunday morning!

Please Register Your Attendance!
Remember, we have TWO WAYS to let us know you are in worship:
1. Click here to access our SoL Online Attendance Registration & Prayer Request Form. Use this form to not only register your attendance (and the attendance of those worshiping with you), but to also share any prayer requests or other comments with your church.
2. If you have our SoL Church Center App on your phone, tap on the “Check In” at the bottom of the home screen and follow the prompts. (The App can be downloaded to your phone by going to the App Store or Google Play.) You can check-in yourself and your family members just like we’ve been doing for the last 9 months in person at SoL. The difference is…NO BARCODE TO SCAN!! Please remember: this option does not allow you to include any prayer requests. To share a prayer request, use option 1 above.

Also, please remember, if you view the worship service after the fact (like on Sunday afternoon or during the week), please complete the SoL Online Attendance Registration form. You won’t be able to use the app as described in #2 above, but we do want to know if you attended, even if it wasn’t on Sunday morning.

SoL Meet & Greet via Zoom
We highly encourage you to join us for this Meet & Greet time before worship Sunday morning!! The folks who have been attending have asked about some of you they would like to see but haven’t. What’s more, the Toppings also join in, so you can get a behind-the-scenes look at us as we finish preparations for worship! We’ll log in at about 8:15, but the Meet and Greet won’t begin until 8:30 AM. (The Zoom log-in information was sent in the original email)

Online Worship Access
To log-in via Facebook Live: Whether you have a Facebook account or not, you can join the livestream by going to our SoL Facebook page, then clicking on “Videos” on the lefthand side. Here’s a link to our FB page: SoL Facebook Page  Please leave comments for us and each other during worship! If there’s something we need to fix, text either David (480-766-9228) or Pastor Jody (480-766-9272).

On-the-Web: If you don’t have a Facebook Account, you can join from the following link: https://song-of-life-umc.freeonlinechurch.com/live (You will not be able to message us or comment from this site, but if you do have comments, please either text us at the numbers above, or email us at  (please note: we probably won’t check these emails until after worship is over.)

Share the Facebook Livestream…
After you have successfully connected to Facebook Live, we encourage you to share it on your own FB page so your FB friends can worship along with you, OR “Share” it with your friends, especially those who don’t regularly attend SoL. This is a great way to invite new people who may become new members, so do your part: invite others to join us for worship!!

Giving
Our financial gifts are an important way we demonstrate our gratitude to God for the many gifts God has given to us. At SoL, we receive financial gifts by cash, check, or by electronic means. We strongly encourage you to use our electronic giving processes (accessible through our website, Church Center app, or by Text2Give), but we also recognize some prefer to give via cash or check. For more information on our e-giving processes, please go to our website at songoflifeumc.org/give. To give via cash or check during this time when we are not meeting for worship in person, you may bring or mail your financial gifts to the church at 20164 S. Sossaman Rd, Queen Creek, AZ 85142. If you bring your gift at a time the office is not occupied, please leave it in the secure mailbox, which is near the office, next to the area with the 4 benches.

Koinonia/Bible Buddies Study Group
This combined study group meets at about 11 AM via Zoom. This Sunday, they are hosting a BYOB (Bring Your Own Breakfast) fellowship time. If you would like further information about Koinonia Zoom Study Group please feel free to contact either Joe Hauer at  or Dean Wolfahrt at . Please remember, this is an open group and all adults are invited to attend. (The Zoom log-in information was sent in the original email)

Children’s Church
We will open up the Zoom meeting at 10:30 am (or as close to that as we can). Ms. Erika will lead the lesson and has provided the lesson and handout, both of which are included by clicking here. (The Zoom log-in information was sent in the original email)

SoL’s 21 Day “Do Good” Challenge
Last Sunday at the end of my message I invited you to join me in a 21 Day Challenge to Do Good. We are using a website called Kindspring.org to facilitate this process. Even though we started the challenge on July 22, it’s not too late for you to join. If you’d like to join this challenge, simply go to https://www.kindspring.org/challenge/join/index.php?cid=1953

See you Sunday morning!!
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jody
