Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week is our Fifth Sunday Swap and while I am at Belleview UMC leading worship, you all will be blessed by having Pastor Debbie lead you in worship. Come and hear as Pastor Debbie shares with you what Jesus has to say to our problem of limited vision. I know you will moved, challenged, and certainly uplifted by her gentle spirit and loving presence. Bring a friend and I hope to see you there!

2. Bible Study - We are continuing our Bible study entitled, “Yes Lord I Have Sinned But I Have Several Excellent Excuses” by the Rev. James Moore. Sin is something that affects all of us and this study will help us learn how to take ownership of our sin, be more readily able to recognize temptations in our lives that will lead to sin, as well as help us understand the hope and grace that is ours through Jesus Christ. Next week we will focus on the sins of presumptuousness and losing our spiritual balance. The class will run through November 10th and will be offered at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm each Thursday. The cost is free. If you would like the book, which is not required, it is $12. If you would like to come, just show up! It is never too late to join and we would love to see you there!

3. Christmas Gift Cards - If you normally buy gift cards for the holidays I want to invite you to consider buying them through the church this year. This is an excellent way for you to buy those cards for your loved ones and allows the church to raise extra funds, all at the same time. For a full listing of all participating vendors you can contact Carole in the church office.

4. November Newsletters - The November edition of our church newsletter will be available Sunday in the narthex, or immediately today on our church website, under the Church Publication tab. Please to be sure to pick your copy up and help save us the cost of postage of mailing them out.

5. Commitment Cards - Two weeks ago we concluded our annual focus on Stewardship. If you would still like to turn in your commitment card you can bring them to the church office, or simply drop them in the plate on Sunday morning. I encourage all of you to prayerfully consider how God is calling you to respond with not only your treasure, but your time, talents, gifts, and witness as well.

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
