The RISE - Worship is Life. Contemporary Worship page for First UMC of Morehead City The Rise is the worship service at FUMC, Morehead City, that is at 9:45am on Sunday mornings (between the 8:30 and 11am Sanctuary services).

It is a diverse space, where music is offered from many different traditions. The Rise Band has talent that plays guitars, drums, and the keyboard. We have a quickly growing Children's Ministry, and children are both incorporated into the life of worship and offered Sunday School time, shortly after the service begins. We have many different events hosted here, many of which we share through the FUMC, Morehead City page.

SMALL GROUP SPOTLIGHT

Marriage Matters
Times: Tuesday evenings, 7:15-8:30pm
Location: First United Methodist Church

Starting on Valentines Day, February 14th (can you think of a better way to honor your marriage!), Pastor Powell will begin a 5 part small group series for couples entitled Marriage Matters. The sessions include: the nature and purpose of marriage, principles for doing marriage well, communications, sacred s*x, and the vowed life. The group will meet upstairs on the 3rd floor of the Wallace Building (a one week skip for the FCA banquet on 3/14) and conclude March 21st. Don’t worry, this group isn’t about marriages about to collapse or embarrassing any participants, rather about sharing experience and wisdom rooted in the Scriptures about how we can all work toward a holy and wonderful marriage!

Register with Pastor Powell, [email protected], or call the Church Office at 252.726.7102.

Dear Friends,
After examining as many roads and sidewalks as we can in Morehead City, and after carefully paying attention to the weather forecast for tomorrow, we have decided to hold worship services tomorrow, Sunday January 8th.
Pastor Powell will begin a new series on "Keeping Between the Lines"

September is "National Back to Church Month". At some point in our lives, most of us will have a time when we leave Church for a season. According to surveys, 80% of people will come to a church ONLY because someone invited them. Part of that invitation comes from talking about your Church.
So, for the rest of the month, we invite you to "Check in" at "FUMC, Morehead City" or "The Rise", when you are here. It will let your friends know where you connect with God, and then it will be that much easier for them to accept your invitation when you say, "Want to come to Church with me?"

Dear Friends,

Bishop Hope Morgan Ward has asked that we all be in prayer for The United Methodist Church, as we get ready for our BIG, every four years meeting, called General Conference. There is a lot going on, that we need to be in prayer for -- especially God's will, unity, and love and respect for each other.

In our Conference, we are taking turns praying (for 24 hours total), for the GC meeting this year. We believe that prayer changes things, and changes us!

The Carteret County Churches are asked to pray for a total of 20 minutes, non-stop, for General Conference. Our time slot is WEDNESDAY February 10th, from 7:20-7:40. If you can, please wake up with us and pray for the GC meeting. If you read this at a different time, then pray when you can!
We will announce in Church Sunday
Pass it on!
(And sorry if you saw the first wrongly-written time)

Awhile ago, Patrick Whaley came to our church to visit. He is a UMC missionary to Eastern Europe. He shared some stories of shoeboxes from Operation Christmas Child, and how they got to the children he is serving. He sent me a video of the mission he is a part of called SASHA. Let us celebrate God's good work together!

Cats VS Cucumbers

Dear Friends,
Sometimes life sneaks up on us and scares us. Sometimes, it is really scary things. Sometimes, it wasn't worth getting all worked up about. As you go through your day today, don't get worked up about the non-threatening things, like the cats in these videos. Jesus holds you!

These cats don't stay as cool as their stealthy cucumber stalkers.. These cats are really scared of cucumbers!
