The start of a new school year brings a lot of change, but also the opportunity for a new beginning. For some, this might mean seeing what this following Jesus thing is all about. That's why we want to show you why we choose to follow Jesus here. If you are an individual or a family that is searching for a church to call home and grow in your faith with others, check out why the Willis family is Vestavia Methodist!

Our Fidget Mat ministry will be starting back soon. We have a great ministry of volunteers who make Fidget Mats at the church. There are several ways to get involved with this ministry.

Firstly, you can be a volunteer who makes Fidget Mats at the church. These mats are made up of common items sewn into placemats to safely stimulate and soothe people with Dementia, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, Severe Macular Degeneration, and Palliative Care. We provide these to nursing homes, the Veterans Administration, adult day care facilities, hospice agencies, and families caring for persons with Dementia, Parkinson’s, PTSD, or end of life issues. No prior sewing experience is necessary. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, August 24, from 10 am to 2 pm in the Fellowship Hall. Please come join us.

Secondly, we need supplies: placemats, ribbon, zippers, key chains, jeans pockets, small toys, game pieces, large buttons, beanie babies, infant socks, ties, belts, Pom-Poms, small jewelry bags, golf tees, patches, small crosses, Mardi Gras beads, etc. If you can supply some of these, please bring them to the church office.

It's difficult to resist the temptation to grumble. We grumble because so often we are all too aware of our unhappiness. But God provides for us something -- joy! And this joy sustains us in the midst of our experiences and it reminds us of the goodness of a God who is always with us and for us.
