MINISTRY FAIR

A new year's ministry fair will be held on January 7 following the 10:00 service. Please plan to stop by after church to see all the ways you can get involved at Dayspring! From classes and small group studies to serving others by building houses, writing letters, or quilting and knitting, you can find something for every age and interest. 

UNITED METHODIST MEN

United Methodist Men will meet for breakfast at 8am on January 6 in the Palo Verde Room. Randy Hamilton will lead an exploration of Heart Math - how we are all connected through our heart's electrical energy.

CHERUB CHOIR RETURNS

Kids age 3-6 (preschool and kindergarten) are invited to sing, play, and make new friends in the Cherub Choir. Rehearsals are Sunday mornings from 9:15-9:45, starting this Sunday, January 7. Everyone is welcome! All music, instruments, and supplies are provided. All you need to bring is your voice! Email Ms. Penny with questions. Register HERE.

NEW YEAR'S INTENTION SETTING LABYRINTH WALK

Join us on Saturday, January 13, at 10am for a labyrinth walk to release what no longer serves us and open ourselves to God’s presence in this new year. We will meet in the Palo Verde Room for a brief introduction to using the labyrinth. Those who wish may either walk our labyrinth in the courtyard or stay inside and use one of our handheld labyrinths. Facilitators will be present for guidance and support in both areas.

DAYSPRING MOMS' MEETUP

Whether you’re a new mom or you’ve been through it all, the Moms’ MeetUp is open to all moms in search of a kid-free night out. We will meet for dinner and conversation at Julie's home on Friday, January 19, at 7:00pm. Email Andrea for the location, to RSVP, or with questions.

BORDERLANDS PRODUCE RESCUE

Volunteers are needed to pack food boxes of approximately 70lbs. This is a great chance to spend time in the neighborhood, interact with neighbors, reduce food waste, and bring healthy food to local families. Our next event is Saturday, January 20, from 6:00 - 11am. If you’re interested in helping, please email Pastor Michael.

CONFIRMATION

CALLING ALL 7th GRADERS! On January 28th, we’ll have a confirmation class meeting for any 7th graders (and any older students who haven’t been confirmed) and their parents. Confirmation classes will be on Sundays from February 4th through May 5th. All families interested in confirmation, please plan to attend the meeting after service on January 28th. Email Julie and Sam at youth@dayspring-umc.org with questions.

BURN CITY STRING QUARTET

On Sunday, January 28, at 3pm, our Quartet-in-Residence, the Burn City String Quartet, will present the second program of their three-concert series at Dayspring Tempe. The program includes works by Amy Beach, one of the first American women to gain prominence as a composer, and Prokofiev, best known for “Peter and the Wolf.”

CHURCH PICNIC

Mark your calendars - the Children’s Ministry is hosting a church picnic on Sunday, February 4, at 11:30 at Kiwanis Park in Tempe. There’s no football that day, so you have no excuse not to go! Bring a lunch and enjoy an afternoon at the park with Dayspring Friends. There will be a baked goods competition, tug-of-war, kickball, and so much more. We can’t wait to see you there!

WANTED: DAYSPRING ARTIST FOR STORYTELLING EVENT

Dayspring members are invited to take part in “Sacred Earth: Common Ground,” a storytelling event with other faith communities that connects us with the earth and with each other. Dayspring will host this event at our Tempe campus on Sunday, February 25, from 2:00-3:30pm. Participants are divided into small groups, where each person is invited to tell a three-minute, personal story about an experience of standing on Holy Ground. As part of this event, we’re also looking for a Dayspring member to offer a brief poem, song, dance, or work of art on the theme of “Sacred Earth.” Dayspring will be joined by the SEMA Foundation, a Muslim community service organization, and Crosier Village, a Roman Catholic Priory Church. To sign up or learn more, please email Dave or Maureen.
