New sermon series: Surviving the Dip

Life isn’t always up and to the right. Sometimes we hit a dip that causes us to doubt. If you’ve ever wrestled with trusting God when life is hard, good news: You’re in a prime position to grow! If you lean in during difficult times, your crisis of belief can create spiritual momentum and an even deeper trust in the God of the dip.

By volunteering for just 30 minutes a week in a one-on-one reading session, you will help improve one of the most pressing educational issues in the Greater Austin area – school dropout rates. Research has shown that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. Through Education Connection, join the movement to minimize this trend by becoming a volunteer in one of the many participating elementary schools in the Greater Austin area.

Raise Your Hand!

It takes a lot of planning and dedication to present fun events for our Youth, Tweens and Kids and we LOVE every step of the process!

BUT we could use some extra hands to help make sure the events run smoothly. When more adult volunteers are signed up we can guarantee that the event will take place and the kids won’t be let down by last minute changes. Oh those smiles on their faces when they hear about what we have planned are so wonderful to see!

If you have never volunteered at a Youth or Kid & Tween event and are hesitant about what you would be ask to participate in,  DON’T WORRY! We would never assign you to an uncomfortable task. However you can individually help is plenty for us!

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete this online form and a ministry director will be in touch. Thank you friends!

We are currently revising the prayer list concerns. If you have a family member or friend that could use prayers, please email us at pastor@goodnewsumc.org and they will be added to the prayer list.
