“It Is Amazing What Can Happen…”

image22

If something seemed impossible for eighteen years, would you believe that it could be accomplished in just a few months? What if I told you that something that seemed impossible was in fact accomplished in just a few months? This may seem like an arbitrary tale, but it actually a real one – and one you may not have noticed before now. What on earth could I possibly be talking about here? I will be happy to tell you… during our service this Sunday!

Challenges seem insurmountable for a variety of reasons. There may be circumstances that make a task seem untenable. Everyone may be busy with personal affairs and unwilling to commit to a common task. But there is power when people come together for a common goal, and with a sense of God’s presence. All of this can be summed up in a simple concept: focused commitment. 

You might think that some challenges in our lives seem insurmountable. You might think that some of the challenges facing our congregation seem insurmountable. I believe the journey we will take on Sunday morning will address how God calls us to rise above the challenges we face, and instead embrace the opportunities before us. It is amazing what can happen when we engage in focused commitment together, and I look forward to us exploring what this means together when we gather this week.

Commitment Cards: Please Return by November 17th – Last Sunday we gave out our commitment cards for 2020, which offer us opportunities to think about our “focused commitment” in the areas of prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. We would love for you to prayerfully consider how God might be leading you to commit in 2020, and return these forms by Sunday, November 17theither by mail, dropping it off in the office, or putting them in the designated spots on Sunday mornings.

Thanksgiving Meal and Service November 20th – One of our more unique gatherings of the year is our Thanksgiving Meal and Service, which will take place in the Fellowship Hall at 6pm on Wednesday, November 20th. In order to cover the cost of food for this catered meal, we are asking everyone that signs up to pay $12 per person. We will fellowship and eat together, and then spend some time singing and reflecting with one another as we explore how being “committed to thanks” can make a difference in our lives and in our church.

#GivingTuesday Offering December 3rd – Each of the past two years we have had a tremendous response to our #GivingTuesday offerings. Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and it presents us with an opportunity each year to “give thanks” by giving to an important cause. In a season of so much consumerism, we believe it is good for us to latch onto opportunities to be generous with our resources. This year we are making a concerted effort to reduce our congregation’s building debt in order to free up more resources in our annual budget for ministry and mission. If everyone that regularly gives committed to give $100 above and beyond their regular tithes and offerings, then we would be able to make a significant dent in our debt load as we head into a new year.  Anthony

Issues & Answers

Take a summertime excursion with the Issues & Answers class, meeting Sundays June 23rd-July 21st at 9:30, in their introduction to the Wesleyan Class Meeting format led by our Associate Pastor Kevin & Laurie Clotfelter. This is an opportunity to form small fellowships called Life Groups within our church vision to “connect” with each other. The Life Group concept is based upon the meeting format utilized early in the church renewal movement we now know as Methodism. Contact Don Hall or Kevin if you have interest or questions. 
We meet on second room on the left as you enter Church's Administrative Wing

New Beginnings

We know better. We should be able to do the right thing. But often, we go against our better judgment and give in. The Corinthian Christians were no different. They had listened to one false teaching after another—and they had believed what they heard. How many lies had they accepted? How many mistakes had they made? Their list of sins is long and ugly, much like ours. But Paul had patience with the Corinthians. He was disturbed but not despondent; angry but not desperate. His driving passion for them was love, and he saw hope for them. His letter confronts them and shows them how to lead a pure life. His letter to the Corinthians encourages all of us who need a spiritual check-up.The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. 
We meet in the first classroom on the left when you enter the Church's Administrative Wing.

Seekers

"The Real Heaven--What the Bible Actually Says... What comes to your mind when you think about Heaven? Clouds? Harps? Angels? Singing? Now, honestly, does that really sound like a great way to spend eternity? The good news is, that is NOT what Heaven is like. And when you discover what really awaits you there, it will radically change your view of your future and of Heaven. In this 3 part series from Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we'll do there, what we'll experience and how we're to prepare for eternity today. Join the Seekers SS Class as we discover the amazing truth of what awaits us all in Heaven"


We meet in the classroom closest to Fellowship Hall

Christian Heritage/Wesley Fellowship

Don Schall and Luis Morales co-teach this class, which alternates studying and discussing writings from contemporary authors such as Adam Hamilton, Max Lucado, Robert Jeffers, David Jeremiah, and UMC Adult Bible Studies.  

  

Do you want to discover the answer to life's most fundamental question: What on earth am I here for?  Join us as we embark on a journey to find out, using Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life.  This study will help us understand why we are alive in God’s amazing plan for each one of us—both here and now, and for eternity.  Knowing God’s purpose for creating us help reduce stress, focus energy, simplify decisions, give meaning to life, and most importantly, prepares us for eternity...books available.


Joins in the Old Narthex from 9:15-10:15am; conveniently set between the two services and just down the hall from the sanctuary.  You will be glad you did.
