School is starting back and the backpacks are ready to be filled and distributed at Seminole Academy in Mt. Clemens.

We are beginning our second year of this ministry and are excited to say that we are nearly fully funded for the school year!  Approximately 300 children in need will have  nutritious meals for the weekend thanks to this program.

There is an opportunity for those who wish to help pack the backpacks.  We at First Church will pack on the third Wednesday of each month at Seminole at 4:00 P.M. The commitment is only about 30 minutes.

Please see Dan McLatcher for details.

Leap of Faith

First United Methodist Church of Mount Clemens

Wednesdays @ 6:15 p.m..

Leap of Faith: In Body, Mind, and Spirit

In 2010, my health had hit rock bottom. I took a giant leap of faith and created the following mantra for myself: Health and wholeness in Body, Mind, and Spirit. I did not have a plan, just these words. But I knew I needed to change my course, and with God’s help I have and continue to repeat these words to myself.  My path has led in many directions but 284 pounds lighter today is mind blowing to me. I am not an expert in health and wholeness, but I am on the journey and am inviting others to journey with me using some guidelines. There are a few things I have learned along the way:

1. God is with me always.

2. There is no magic pill, diet, or surgery – it all takes hard work. Good nutrition takes effort.

3. I must move my body intentionally 30 minutes a day.

4. I need to have a healthy plan for my career and finances too.

5. I must surround myself with people that will help me reach my goals.

6. Growing my skills and knowledge is a life time journey.

7. I am worthy of the time and effort to have a healthy life style.

I am going to start an accountability group open to anyone. I dream of a place where people will come, find God, support, and fellowship as they authentically seek health and wholeness for their lives. I want to give back and help others. I am 19 pounds from my goal weight, but I also know that I will always battle addition issues around food, and I am not alone. If you are taking your own Leap of Faith and want an accountability group to help you along the way, come on Wednesday nights at 6:15 pm. We will meet for 1/2 hour in my office. If this time does not work for you or you have questions, please contact me.

Blessings,

Rev. Mary
