So grateful to Troy and Tina Box for donating their carport at Light on the Hill and for our Volunteers In Mission Team Members, Brad, Ray, Rusty and Sangrid for building sides and doors to the carport! This will give us a storage shed for storing our KFUMC Disaster Trailer along with tools, ladders and other supplies. If you would like more information about disaster response, please contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you like people? Do you have the gift of hospitality?
We need help with special events and retreats throughout the year. You would be doing things like serving food or washing dishes. It's a lot of fun and a great way to share the love of Christ!
Do you love to cook or bake?
We have a wonderful team of unpaid servants that would love for you to join them.
We have a great time together as we serve!

FROM JANE DAVIS
I am praying for you this morning…
The words keep playing in my head…
“Because He LIVES, I can face tomorrow…”
Easter came…there were early morning praise services…our churches were packed…we said, “Christ is risen!”…
the tomb is empty.
And then, many just put the Easter experience back on the shelf, until next year.
But HE LIVES! He lives within YOU! Within ME.
Nothing “shelf-worthy” about this earth-shaking experience.
It changed everything. It changed me…He changed me.
And, because He LIVES, we can face tomorrow…
“God sent His son…
They called Him Jesus.
He came to love, heal and forgive.
He bled and died, to buy my pardon…
The empty tomb is there to prove my Savior lives.
And because He lives…
I can face tomorrow…
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, He holds the future…
And life is worth the living…
Just because He lives.”
Happy Easter…again and again.
During the month of May, (1, 8, 15 and 22), join our Recreation Minister: Grant Palmer for Adult Hiking on the trails at Light on the Hill!!
They will begin at 6 pm, meeting at the porch (at the back of LOTH near the pool).
Make sure you bring your water!

Kerrville First United Methodist Church’s Food4Kids program provides food on the weekends for children experiencing food insecurity from our neighboring school, Nimitz Elementary. Other churches in our community have also adopted local schools in our county to be a blessing! KFUMC is currently helping almost 60 students and their families who do not have enough nutritious food to sustain them throughout the weekends. Many families depend on breakfast and lunch for their children at school and when school is not in session, like on weekends, it provides a hardship for the family. Our awesome unpaid servants help with the shopping, packing, delivering and distributing of the food to make this program possible. Food4Kids is a food relief ministry connected with our Mustard Seed Pantry. Thank you for supporting Food4Kids!
Thank you to Bryant Williams for his generous gift of a golf cart to our outreach ministry! This will help with providing accessibility for our neighbors with mobility challenges to all of our outreach ministries.

Cooper Smithson, a fourth grade student at Starkey Elementary, gifted Starkey Sausage Supper tickets to more than 70 families at Mustard Seed Food Pantry! Cooper’s generosity brought lots of smiles of joy and gratitude! Thank you to everyone who donated tickets to allow Cooper to bless so many!
On Wednesdays and Thursdays at Mustard Seed Food Pantry, many unpaid servants give their love and time behind the scenes bagging non-perishables for Monday morning sharing with our community. Thankful for these servant hearts!

Midweek Mission Moment-1/18/23
Monica goes on to say, “The Table is ‘church’ reinvented. Around the table, dinner conversations will center around food and faith stories. The table provides an opportunity for guests to share and hosts to listen. Our targeted guests will initially be a select group of friends from our marginalized community. We want our Mustard Seed friends who have become our family to be our first dinner guests.”
Writer and scholar, Leonard Sweet once said, Whenever I’m asked, ‘What is God up to?’ my most common answer is, ‘Have you heard of dinner church?” Dinner church is a type of microchurch where the meal and the table are not simply points of distinction from other churches; they are essential to the congregation’s makeup. Microchurches are intentionally small, which allows the type of inclusion that notices everyone and a place where all are heard and given the opportunity to contribute.
Lastly, Monica shared, “Authentic fellowship leads to discipleship, one meal at a time. When new disciples start sharing stories from the table with others, those others will come, and that is what I call “church.”
Vernon Fosner, who has written books on the dinner church movement says, “For Jesus, the dinner table was the invitation to faith. Jesus clearly embedded the gospel into the dinner-table theology.”
Please join us in praying for this new ministry and all that God will do through it and among the participants.
