                                            Pastor’s Midweek October 9, 2018

Wednesdays at Noon, Mom’s Front Porch, is an opportunity to sit awhile, have some lunch and discuss “The Path: A Journey Through the Bible”. This is a cooperative study presented by Father Mark from the Episcopal Church and Pastor Bill from our United Methodist Church. I missed the last two weeks taking care of other things, but I will be back for this Wednesday.

We are blessed to offer a Flu Shot clinic on October 10, along with a Kidney screening from 3-6 on October 10, 2018. Thanks to Rhonda Sue Hunnicutt, our Wesley Nurse, for putting all of this together!

We will have our booth on Saturday the 13th, but most of all, bring canned food for the LAMA Food Pantry. They are real short on peanut butter, refried beans, corn and canned fruit.

Church Conference is on October 14, 2018, at Dale Corinth UMC, located at 1825 FM 1854, Dale, Texas. We take 183 towards Lockhart. Turn left on FM 20 and it will intersect with FM 1854. Turn left on 1854 which will take you into downtown Dale, Texas. FM 1854 makes a right angle left turn in Dale (right after the VFW), so watch for that. The church is on the left after about a half mile.    An important agenda item for our church is the vote for establishing the Permanent Endowment Fund. This document is available for your review at the office. We will need a good representation of our church at the church conference to vote on this.

Children’s Sabbath. You will not want to miss worship this Sunday. Our children and youth are helping, and we will have a look at the “God Sightings” from VBS. By the way. Where have you seen God at work this week? Our focus scriptures are Isaiah 11:1-6 and Mark 10:13-16.

Church Directory  Pictures will be taken on November 6 and 7. Sign up and schedule your photo. Let’s make this photo directory as complete as we can.

Winter Coat Ministry. It is that time again! November 3 is the day. Let’s start collecting new and gently used coats for the kids (and others in need).
