Journey Through Advent


We'll help you get in the Christmas spirit by taking a trip to High Point University to enjoy beautiful music as we watch the chamber singers rehearse for their Christmas shows.

The rehearsal is at 2:00pm, so we'll leave Jamestown at 1:15pm and ride together in the bus. There is no cost for this trip.


If you're interested in joining us, please register HERE by November 27th.

Christmas Food Drive

We are excited to announce our 3rd Annual Food Drive for Christmas. A list can be found at the Welcome Center or HERE so you can start collecting food on November 10th and will end December 3rd with a drive-thru collection of food items from 10:00pm to 12:00pm at the Church.

Our Discernment Committee offered a forum on Sunday, October 23rd.  This forum allowed us to share where we’ve been as a denomination and where we are as a church.  This was an opportunity for us to come together and discuss these topics and ask questions. Here, you can access the video and PDF documents "A," "B," & "C" that was presented at the meeting.

 

How well do you know the Bible? Do you know the stories? Do you know how the Bible is organized and how those texts were chosen? Have you ever thought about all the different ways people approach the Bible and decided for yourself what to think? If you said "no" to any of these questions, you need What Is the Bible?


This six-week study in basic biblical literacy assumes no prior knowledge of the Bible and is not biased toward any particular Christian tradition. Join Pastor Josh Barnes on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm in the Library to journey through this study. The study begins on October 25th and ends November 29th.

Same Fellowship Different Night

Fellowship Dinners are returning, on a new night!  Starting September 11th, the Fellowship Dinners are moving from Wednesday to Sunday at 5:00pm.  


Our church has given new attention to how we do Youth Ministries, and Sunday nights are now a focal point for many of our younger families.  We already have Children’s Choir, R.O.C.K.@5 for children up to 5th grade, and Jamestown Youth Ministry for 6th through 12th grades.  Also Pastor David will start a new Sunday evening Bible Study, diving deeper into our new sermon series “The Bible Year”.  By combining dinner for our youth and their families with our Sunday Night Fellowship Dinners, we hope to have a great mix of events all on one night, giving us the opportunity for new ways to grow in our faith, share in-person fellowship, and gather together in a multi-generational meal.

Please make Sunday Night Fellowship a part of your plans!

 

World Relief Triad

INTERESTED IN BLESSING A REFUGEE FAMILY?

 

JUMC Mission’s Committee is partnering with World Relief Triad to help set up homes for refugees coming to High Point and Winston Salem. Do you feel lead to make a difference in the lives of refugees & immigrants by welcoming the stranger? Then I’d like to invite you to join us and volunteer with World Relief. We would work as a team and commit to setting up 3-4 homes over the span of a year. All the furnishings are provided by World Relief and delivered to the home at an agreed upon time. Then, our fun and work begin by organizing the home.

 

If you are unable to make a 1-year commitment but would like to volunteer for ½ day with World Relief, we also need your help organizing their new warehouse. They have workdays scheduled from 9:00 am to noon on: November 19th & December 10th. Again, we would work as a team.

 

World Relief is a Christian humanitarian organization addressing issues of disasters, poverty,
violence, and mass displacement.

To learn more about how to get involved, please contact Lynda Thompson at: 336-307-1735 or by email:

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

Newsletter and Weekly Bulletin Updates

We produce our newsletter only once a month.  This publication of the newsletter covers all the events planned for the month, and a week or two into the next month.  The newsletter will be available at all the usual places; US postal service (mail), email, the website, through Facebook and Instagram and our mobile app.  If you have information relating to JUMC ministries, that you would like to post in the newsletter, contact Dana Bird at dana@jumc.org.  She will have a form to help ensure all the pertinent information is included.  You will need to have the article and information form to Dana Bird (dana@jumc.org) no later than the 28th of the month. 


We will begin emailing the newsletter through our church database in September.  As we transition over, we need to make sure your email addresses are up to date in our system.  The current email list will go away by the end of September.  To add, confirm or update your email address, we ask you to complete the form HERE.

Masks Recommended

Under the recommendations of the WNCCUMC Bishop in response to the current rise in COVID cases in our area, we are re-instating our recommendation of the wearing of masks at all large indoor gatherings including worship services. We apologize for the inconvenience but stay committed to the Wesley spirit of “doing no harm” by erring on the side of caution.



As we share this information, we must regretfully postpone the July Jubilee Covered Dish luncheon previously scheduled for this coming Sunday. Our plans for one worship service at 10am in the Sanctuary will continue as scheduled.


Office Hours

The church office closes for lunch between 1:15pm - 2:15pm Monday - Thursday.  We close on Fridays at 1:00pm. During these times, you will receive a message recording when you call and the doors will not be monitored for building access.  If you have an appointment with a staff member, that staff member will meet you at the door to let you in. There will be no one to let you inside the building unless you have an appointment.
