Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week we will begin a new two week preaching series aimed at helping us better the understand the difference between our understanding of time and God's time, or kairos.  We operate out of a liner understanding and over the next two weeks we will look at how God does not and what that means for us as believers.  Bring a friend and I hope to see you there!

2. Bible Study - On November 17th we are beginning a new Bible Study entitled, The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem. I invite you to join us, on this DVD study, as we journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. We will join Adam Hamilton on his travels through these locations to rediscover the birth of Christ. We will look at historical information, archaeological data, and take a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth. I am sure the most amazing moment in history will become more real and heart-felt as you join us and we walk along this road together.
The class will meet on Thursdays, beginning November 17th, and last five weeks.  We will not meet on November 24th, but will resume December 1st, and wrap up the series on December 22nd.  The class will once again be offered at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall. The cost is free. If you would like the book, which is not required, it is $12.  You can register one of three ways; online at our church website (click here), using the insert in the bulletin, or by calling the church office.  I know you will be changed by this series, so sign up learn with us, and I 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. Charge Conference - Our Annual Charge Conference is Sunday, November 20th at 4pm, and will be held at First UMC, Ocala.  This is a part of the business side of the church where we officially submit the leadership of church for next year, celebrate our growth over the past year, and celebrate our hope in the year to come.  I invite to come out and show your support for Druid Hills with your presence.  Two years ago, when we had this cluster before we had the largest contingent present...let's do it again!

5. Commitment Cards - Three 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!
