WHAT IS “FC GATHERING”?

FC Gathering is a mid-week event that will be held at the Downtown Campus beginning

Wednesday, October 12. Everyone is invited! During our time together we

will share a meal and fellowship, and then move on to small groups. Everything is

in the planning stages, and we will be sharing more with you soon!

SECOND GRACE BACK TO SCHOOL BLUE JEAN EVENT

The Second Grace Shop will be distributing some clothing for back to school on

appropriate jean donations are being accepted until that time through the

church office. Any size for small children to teenagers are greatly appreciated.

ROOTS (GRADES 3 - 6)

Roots will meet on Sunday, September 25, from 5 - 7 pm at the Rt. 8 Campus. We

are looking forward to learning about Jesus, having fun and eating tacos! Contact

Suzie with any questions at sasa@butlerfumc.com

THIS WEEKEND WE BEGIN A NEW SERMON SERIES: GET OVER YOURSELF!

The text for week one of Get Over Yourself is Luke 18:9-14 - the parable of

the Pharisee and the tax collector: “For whoever who exalts themselves will

be humbled, and whoever humbles themselves will be exalted.” It’s the

“posture” before the Lord that opens the door to the flow of God’s work in

life - a posture of humility, of acknowledging that before God without Jesus,

we are simply sinners seeking mercy.
