What's Coming Up?

 

Coronavirus Update

Dear Troy First Family,

As Covid-19 (Coronavirus) knocks at the door of Alabama, we want to be sure to proactively communicate the action steps that we are taking to ensure that our community remains safe as this is a very real threat to our community and country. At the same time, it is important that we as Christ-followers engage with these concerns in a Christ-like manner. It is important that we all stay informed and vigilant, yet we must conduct ourselves in a way that reflects our confidence and trust in God no matter what we are facing. This is an opportunity for us as a community to display peace and prayer rather than panic and fear. ​

 ​

****IMPORTANT INFORMATION****

All ministries are canceled and 8:30am service has been canceled until further notice. 11am service can be watched LIVE at 11am Sundays on Troy Cable channel-2, Facebook.com/TC2TV , or YouTube Live at TC2.”

 ​

Here are a few precautionary steps that we are taking in the days ahead: ​

  • Our facilities team is taking extra steps to ensure that high-contact surfaces remain clean and disinfected throughout service times. ​

  • We will forgo greeting times in our worship services for the next few weeks. ​

  • When you greet others at church opt for a smile, a wave or an elbow bump rather than a handshake or hug. We will be instructing our greeters to do the same thing. ​

  • Frequently wash your hands and utilize the sanitation stations at the rear of the sanctuary and in the round room. ​

  • If you or a family member have a weakened immune system, health concerns, or are feeling unwell, please stay home and join our services online at facebook.com/TC2TV/ or on Troy Cable Channel 2 on Sundays at 11:00 AM or Tuesdays at 12:00 noon.  ​

​We do have in place further steps should Covid-19 cases emerge in our community or in the event the outbreak becomes substantial.  ​

 ​

If you would like more information about the virus and prevention measures you can take, we recommend visiting the Center for Disease Control website at CDC.gov. ​

 ​

We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support, and thank you for being the light of Jesus in our community. ​

Mission: Uganda

July 22-August 4, 2020

We will be teaming up with First United Methodist Church of Panama City to take a team to

Uganda in the summer of 2020. This is a very long trip to a group of people in need. We currently

have one person that is committed to going, and we are looking to take a total of 5 people from

our church to go with them. More information to follow but we will be participating with FUMC

Panama City in fundraisers to help lower the personal cost burden of this trip. If you feel a calling

to go and help those in need, please let Kenny Green know ASAP.

 

 

Organist Needed

Troy FUMC is looking for a skilled organist to serve in our music ministry. You can get more details here

 

Find First Class

We want people to find Troy First United Methodist Church. Not for numbers sake, but for the opportunity to introduce them to Jesus Christ and help them to grow into his likeness. Our task as United Methodist Christians is, “to make disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” according to our UM Book of Discipline.

As an aid to this task regular classes entitled Finding First. Topics, divided into the two sessions, will include finding assurance of faith in Jesus Christ, scriptural basis for the local church, unity in the face of diversity, basic United Methodist beliefs, sacraments, stewardship of life and the meaning of membership vows as well as an overview of what goes on here at Troy First.

Current and new members as well as those interested in joining Troy First are encouraged to join this initial class. If you have questions please contact Steve at swinton@troycable.net
