What a glorious day as an estimated 6700 people worshiped our Risen Lord at Frazer UMC Easter Sunday! Many started the day off at the Sunrise Service in Blount Park. Beautiful weather all weekend provided for the perfect setting. The crowds filled the Frazer sanctuary and Wesley Hall for traditional and contemporary services all morning. Many of you helped share the news of our Easter Services by simply “sharing” a post on Facebook. Our Facebook reach was well over 50,000 last week due to the large number of “shares” made by the Frazer Family. This means that more than 50,000 people saw an invite to at least one Holy Week service via Facebook. Technology is a strong vehicle in communicating the Word of God! He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!
Easter Sunday is always a special day as we celebrate the Risen Lord and share our love of Christ with first time visitors! At least 16 visiting families came through the Children’s Ministry last Sunday. Frazer’s Children’s Ministry Director Cami Culpepper has already personally called these families to let them know we would love to have them join the Frazer Family or stop in for another visit. This Sunday, April 12th, Cami’s team is looking forward to expanding the new Live Check In system to include 1st through 5th graders. Every family is encouraged to stop by the tugboat to check in their child and take advantage of this new fast, effective and secure way of knowing your child is in good hands as you take in worship or Sunday School. Pictured below the always eager to serve Children’s Ministry Team: Lindsey Boyd, Cami Culpepper, Gayle Elmore, and Pam Cofield.
Frazer UMC supports the Brantwood Children’s Home and recently received an encouraging letter from Brantwood’s Director Kim Herbert. Here is some the good news Kim had to share about Frazer’s involvement at Brantwood, which provides a safe, stable and structured environment for abused, neglected and other at-risk children.
Kim Herbert: “God continues to use Frazer UMC to bring His love to the youth living at Brantwood Children’s Home. I have experienced numerous former youth, who are now adults, share stories of being angry with God but that it was while attending events at Frazer that God revealed His love to them. Thank you for your eternal perspective and viewing Brantwood as mission field for Jesus.
I am also grateful for the financial support given by Frazer UMC. Frazer has the distinction of being the only church to provide Brantwood with monetary support that can be included as part of our annual financial budget. Because Frazer UMC steps out in faith to make a commitment to Brantwood’s annual financial support, Brantwood is able to plan better for the youth and their home. I am thankful for the long standing partnership with Frazer UMC in changing lives with Jesus at Brantwood Children’s Home.”
