Tickle - July 29

What a wonderful movement of God! We watched Sunday as God adopted baby Henrik Tor Evans into the family of God at the 9:45 service and baby Jacob Alexander Clements at the 11 am service through through their Baptisms! There was grace ALL OVER this place of grace on Sunday! And I am also glad that so many were here to hear David’s Sutton’s mission moment. David is starting a new Sunday School class on Sunday, August 10 from 9:45 to 10:45 am, in the Youth Sunday School Room (lower level of MAC in the corner.) Just come and be part of this new small group fellowship. David is a class of “two” right now – David and God. They would love more folks to join with them. Make certain you get the August Monthly Newsletter that Evelyn just sent out. My cover letter speaks to the call to Christian Education I feel God leading FUMC into these next 12 months. Join with us!
 
What a joy it was to completely fill up Hiawassee UMC at our Connectional Group sing-a-long last Sunday night. The music leaders came from everywhere. The people came from everywhere. The joy came from everywhere. It was a good time and we are grateful to our good friends at Hiawassee UMC for hosting us all. If you were there, you know the blessing it was. If you were not there, come to the next one! But you had better get there early to get a seat!
 
This next Sunday will be our 2nd annual “Blessing of the Book bags” Sunday. We will lift up and celebrate what I call the educational Holy Trinity - Student, Parent, & Teacher. If you are a student of any age attending any preschool or grade level or even collegiate level, this can include you. If you plan to carry a book bag to school, bring it to worship this Sunday. If you are a parent of a student - and it does not matter if your student is present - there is something in this blessing for you. If you are a teacher or administrator (past, present or in training), there is something in this blessing for you. Please come and let the Lord bless the next season of your life. Invite teachers, administrators, parents and students you know. We want to spread this blessing through our community
.
It’s Camp meeting month in August at FUMC. It’s time to get “rev-ived” up in the heat of August. Towards that goal, I am going to begin a new sermon series this coming Sunday – old school! For the next four weeks, we are going to encounter Genesis Chapters 37-50. Get out your Bibles, find the middle of the book, and then turn real sudden like to the left! We are going to let God speak truth to us directly from the story of Joseph and the coat of many colors. This four week study on Joseph will inevitably lead us into the Biblical perspective of reconciliation so important to the Biblical story right from “in the beginning.” And we will have some fun along the way. So if you have been waiting to shout “Give Me that Old Time Religion” then bring your Bibles to worship (you’re going to need them) and prepare to rev up your spiritual engine a wee bit as we all “Go back to Old School” together! And I suspect Jesus will find His way in there along the way!
 
I will be continuing my United Methodist Workshop this Wednesday night in the Friendship Classroom in the lower level of the MAC. The topic this week is our United Methodist Understanding of Sin and Salvation. This could be one of those really interesting conversations – everyone is welcome. Feel free to come be part of the conversation or simply sit and overhear the conversation. This workshop has been a delight for me. Come join us for one hour from 6 to 7 pm tomorrow night.
 
Lastly, I ask for your patience this week. Our Evelyn is on vacation until Thursday. The fifty of us who are going to try to do what she does in her absence will not be as fast or efficient as Ms. E. Let grace truly abound in this place of grace this week!

Wednesday Night Live: Get your calendars out!

We are starting back up our Wednesday Night Live dinner and programs on Wednesday August 20 with a picnic outside under the MAC portico. If you have a group that wishes to sign up to do a fundraiser on a key date – it is first come first serve on the dates. Evelyn has sign up sheets prepared. Ro Robbins and the Robinettes will get us going. Fundamentals will begin on that night as well. We will have completed our United Methodist Workshop that I am currently teaching in that time slot and return to our Bible Study on that night as well.

Covenant Bible Study: Something New!

Our David Sutton will be facilitating a new DVD driven Bible study created by our denomination called “Covenant.” The curriculum is offered in three 8 week segments with breaks in between the segments. The study delves into how God creates a Covenant Community, how we live faithfully within that Covenant, and how to deal with those times when the tragedy of life seems to call into question our trusting the Covenant .  You can research all the details at http://www.covenantbiblestudy.com/ If you think there might be even a remote chance you might consider this study, come to the “no commitment” orientation meeting on Sunday afternoon August 17, at 2 pm in the lower level of the MAC (large center area.) You will see a longer video showing what the study is actually like and have an opportunity to ask questions you need answered to know if this study is right for you. Go ahead, step forward in faith!

Connectional Group Kentucky Mission Trip (Redbird Mission)

Not too late to sign up!    So far, there are 18 of us signed up to go on our September Mission trip to the Redbird Mission in Kentucky as introduced by Tom Maryscuk of our FUMC Missions Committee. It’s not too late to come with us or too early to begin praying for us who are going. The week long trip to the  Red Bird Mission total cost is $375 per person to cover lodging and meals for the week. We stay at the Red Bird Mission – Google it if you want more info. The dates are Sept 7 through 13 (I will be leaving after church on Sept 7.) Others are going with the larger group earlier in the morning. It’s a light project work week. We are staged from the mission out into the surrounding Appalachia area to do whatever needs to be done. This is a shared trip that our Connectional group is doing together. To help us get to know the other United Methodists from Union and Towns County going on the trip, we are doing a fellowship Bible study gatherings together and rotating that among the churches who have people going. The idea is that we get to know each other before we go sweat together! The next Bible Study fellowship is at Sharp Memorial UMC Tuesday, August 5, at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. I am planning on attending this session – come along with me if you like! If you wish to go, we need an initial $188 check from you at this time to reserve your space.


Children Enrichment Center (CEC) – our FUMC Preschool

Glory be to God! Our 2 yr olds are full. Our 3 yr olds are full. We have only 2 places left in our 4 yr old classes. We ask three things of our beloved supporting congregation; pray for your CEC that God use it to do amazing things, help us fill those last two little chairs in the four year old classes, and begin to recognize that you are about to have 80 more little ones in your parking lot, playgrounds, and road ways. Meet the teacher day is Friday August 8 (11 am to 1 pm) with the first day of preschool beginning Monday August 11. Please drive carefully! Look for 2 yr olds, 3 yr olds and 4 yr olds – they will be everywhere – and they may not yet be looking for you!

Women’s Bible Study

The Wednesday morning women’s study will also begin after Labor day. They are considering starting up on the Covenant Bible Study for 24 weeks described above. An initial informational meeting will be organized soon by Doris and Shannon. More to come.

A Note from Your Finance Team

At the end of June, we finished the first half of 2014. What an incredible first half it has been! Total giving in the first six months has been $426,473. At that giving rate ($16,400 per week on average), we would end the year receiving $853,000. Our current Church Council approved ministry plan which allows us to do everything we need to do AND fully fund our five additional initiative areas for 2014 (Children, Youth, Worship, Outreach, Trustees) would require $873,000 in total giving by years end ($16,790 per week on average) – we are not yet 100% there but we are not too far off that pace. Let’s keep growing in grace together! July giving has been: July 6 $16,379, July 13 $18,207, July 20 $15,139, and July 27 $17,921 for a $67,646 month!
THANK YOU for your heavenly giving!
 
God's Joy,
Senior Pastor

Tickle - July 22

It is soooooooo good to be back home. Yes, vacation was wonderful but we have missed all of you. Since I have been away for two weeks, it’s going to take me a while to get caught back up with life at FUMC. I am sending this brief tickle to simply let everyone know that the Burgess Family safely made it back. Erma is staying with her youngest daughter in Missouri for a few weeks. Shannon’s brother Scott is doing well with no apparent long term damage from his multiple heart attacks. We got to get caught up with many family members with wonderful visits. But it sure is good to be back home.

Wednesday, July 23. 6 p.m.

I will be offering another “United Methodist conversation” this Wednesday evening from 6-7 pm in the Friendship Sunday School Room. The topic this week is one I would invite everyone to attend – United Methodist Theology – or put simply, how we United Methodists understand God’s work in the world through us. Again, this would be a great conversation for folks considering joining, or those who have recently have joined, or those who have been United Methodists their whole life. I am pulling from my personal UM101 series that I teach periodically but I also desire your questions to help make the conversation meaningful to you. I may not have all the answers (none of us do) but I sure do enjoy the conversation and I always come away feeling a little closer to God.  

Sunday, Baptisms

We have two Baptisms this coming Sunday – one at 9:45 and another at 11 pm. Come celebrate God’s movement in our midst.  

Child Enrichment Center Update

Help us get the word out about the upcoming school year in your Child Enrichment Center (Preschool.) The best way for folks to find out about us is through word of mouth. While our 2 yr old’s are full, we still have room for one 3 yr old and four 4 yr olds. Every empty seat in your CEC is a missed opportunity for God to share God’s love with another family. Help us fill every single one of those precious little chairs.  

Connectional Group, Sunday, July 27

Lastly, our Connectional Group (the eight UMC churches of Towns and Union Counties) is gathering this coming Sunday, July 27,  at Hiawassee UMC (on Hwy 515 in Hiawassee) at 6:30 pm for a Sing-a-Long gathering. Each Church will be contributing music for this evening of fun. Bring the family and come be with us this Sunday evening in song and music.  

Pray for everybody, serve passionately, speak of God genuinely, give generously, and give thanks to God in all things.

Can’t wait to see everyone Sunday in Worship!

God’s Joy,

PS....we will kick off our Wednesday Night Dinner season beginning with an outdoor picnic Wednesday, August 20th.

From our Youth Department

Let's splash our way into the new school year with a wet and wacky Splash Night!  Come join the Youth and Children  up on the hill, next Wednesday night - July 30 - from 6:00 until 8:00.  You Will Get Wet!  Wear your swimsuits (no bikinis please!) and bring a towel.  We will have a slip and slide, water relays, water balloons, sand castle building contest and so much more!

From Finance: Sunday's offering came in at $18,207.

With the 2014 ministry plan (or budget) in place, our weekly offering needs are around $23,000 a week.
 
Enjoy this beautiful God-given day!
