Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week we will conclude our preaching series aimed at helping us better the understand the difference between our understanding of time, chronos, and God's time, kairos.  Last week we sought to build a foundation of understanding.  This week we are going to look at how our application of the Five Practices of the Methodist Way can be rooted in our understanding of kairos time.  Bring a friend and I hope to see you there!

2. Bible Study - Yesterday, we began 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 again on Thursday, December 1st and meet each week through December 22nd.  The class is offered at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall and 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 and I would love to see you there!  It is never too late to join!

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. Service for Faye Pippin - Tomorrow at 11am we will gather here at the church to celebrate and remember the life of Faye Pippin.  I invite you all to come out and show your care and support for the family as we say goodbye to this wonderful saint.

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
