FAST 5 is a new ministry this year designed especially for Fun, Active Spiritual Training for our 5th graders. We meet each Wednesday at Argyle United Methodist from 6-7:30 pm. We spend our time having snacks, playing games, worshipping, and learning a Bible lesson. Our goal is to engage all types of students, challenge them with God’s word, and have FUN doing so. Please contact Jennifer Tolin to receive updates and information.

Argyle UMC defines a Life Group as a small, welcoming group of people who gather on a regular basis in the name of Jesus Christ and inlcudes a spiritual element in their meeting, such as prayer, scripture, and/or devotional. 

FOUR TYPES OF LIFE GROUPS

BIBLE STUDY

These groups meet regularly to study the bible, either on campus or off campus, such as Sunday School. 

MISSIONAL

These groups serve in our community and in the world, transforming it one life at a time through missions. 

MINISTRY

Ministry groups, such as LIGHT or SALT, have regular activities and events scheduled throughout the year and serve in ministry.  

SOCIAL

These groups get together to fellowship on a regular basis. This could include a prayer group or an exercise group. 

Prayer Team Ministry

Prayer is the language of our hearts when our words fail to form.  It is a dialogue of the heart with the Spirit as we invite God into these vulnerable places of our lives. It may be a cry for help, joy and thanksgiving, a plea for others, the quiet wondering of ‘why,’ the growth of friendship with God… and sometimes just the simple silence.

You are invited to share your prayer requests, your concerns and celebrations and have Argyle UMC’s Prayer Team address each request. You may share your requests by using the Prayer Request cards in each of our worship services or by submitting a prayer online. You may leave a name or leave them anonymous. All requests are held in strict confidence.

For more information on the Prayer Team Ministry, contact Mary Ellen Burum-Low at email maryellen@argyleumc.org.

Do you have an urgent need that requires the attention of a Pastor or Caregiver? Pastors and trained Caregivers are available to offer spiritual support during an emergency or in crisis.  If you have a pastoral emergency, call the Pastoral Emergency Line and leave a detailed voice message or send a text message to our Pastoral Care Line at (940) 294-6334.  Once a message is left, a pastor or caregiver will be notified immediately and return your call or text.

Join the Prayer Team Ministry

As covenant members at Argyle UMC, we have all made the vow to “uphold the ministries of this church with our prayers;” and not just our personal prayers and practice, but the discipline of intercessory prayer and the ways we surround our community with compassion and faith through prayer.  Prayer is a powerful way to be in ministry together. We are invited to be part of each other’s most vulnerable moments and be authentic in our joy, sorrows, pain, fear and doubts.

Our Prayer Chain Ministry at Argyle UMC receives prayer concerns and celebrations of our community and congregation weekly and as needed. Though this intentional prayer and practice, the Prayer Team members enter into the life and faith of those we know and even those whom we don’t know.

Be part of the Prayer Chain Ministry through a covenant of confidentiality and support.  To officially join the Prayer Team, complete the covenant and agree to these terms:

  • commit to pray for these each week and as they come.
  • commit to confidentially share in the concerns and celebrations of others.

Bereavement Ministry

For those who are planning a funeral or memorial service. As a part of Congregational Care, the Bereavement Ministry’s desire is to provide assistance, whether you are facing the death of a loved one or death comes unexpectedly. It is with this goal in mind that we have provided this information to ease the stress of a most stressful time. This information will provide guidelines as you plan to honor and celebrate the life of that special person.

Grief Support Group

This 5-week Coping with Loss Grief class will help participants understand the emotional and physical dynamics of grief, decrease a sense of isolation, share personal experiences within a safe, caring, and understanding environment, and develop healthy coping skills and activities. This class is offered twice a year. If you would like to sign up for the next available class, please contact Mary Ellen Burum at maryellen@argyleumc.org.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges. The role of a Stephen Minister is to listen and care, not to advise or give counsel, and to recognize when a person’s needs exceed what they can provide. Stephen Ministers maintain only one caring relationship at any given time and usually meet with their care receivers on a weekly basis. Confidentiality is preserved at all times by not discussing care receivers by name or by implication. For more information, click the button above or contact Mary Ellen at maryellen@argyleumc.org

FAMILY CARE GIVERS

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16
