Pastor's Corner




Dear Saints of Ennis,


This has been an exciting time to be in ministry! We have some awesome opportunities in the works right now. Both the contemporary and traditional services have been very well attended lately, and I hope that you are finding the same joy in both expressions of worship that I am. I have had multiple people tell me about the hope and peace they feel resting over our church. I am confident there are even better days to come.

As our new staff settles into their team we are actively planning to create new opportunities for student and family ministries that will supplement our already excellent offerings of adult ministries. September 12th from 5 to 7 we will begin a program called Sunday Night Live for children and youth of all ages. This will be a time of food, games, teaching and an opportunity to worship as a family at the end of the evening.

I will also be restarting Bible study at 10:30AM Wednesdays, working through some of the "little books" of the New Testament. These books are full of scriptures you have heard quoted and taught many times, but I have found whole book studies to be invaluable to understanding the Word in the context it is given. I hope you can join me as we start in Galatians on Sept 15th.

I believe we are now ready to begin kindly but aggressively inviting our friends and neighbors to come experience the goodness of God in FUMC Ennis. We have made a home for people of all ages who need a place to encounter God. As we find new opportunities to spread the love of Christ new opportunities for service and community in the city will also find us. I am excited for the coming season when we get to see what the Lord has been preparing in us!

With Christ's Love,

-Pastor Matt Bailey
