LET’S START BAKING FOR THE BAZAAR!

The Holiday Homespun Bazaar will be on Nov.3rd and 4th this year and will be here before we know it. Blueberries and peaches are readily available now – apples will be soon. As you are baking some pies for your family, please think about making some extra for the Bazaar. Again, there will be a supply of mini-pie plates on the counter in the Gathering Space because small pies have been so popular. Take as many as you need. Of course, regular-size pies are popular too!

Many kinds of pies and quick bread (got extra zucchini?) can be made and frozen ahead of time. Let’s start baking!


 

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL


The Adult Sunday School Class led by John Meader will start at 9:00 am on Sunday,

Sunday Morning Choir


It’s time for the choir to begin for the fall. Our first Sunday will be September 10th. Come on upstairs at 9:00 a.m. to rehearse for Sunday Services. (On Sept. 10th we will lead the congregation in the hymns, and we will have an anthem for the following Sunday.) Everyone is welcome, feel free to try it for a Sunday or two. We are friendly and welcome everyone.

HANDBELL CHOIR

Have you ever wished that you could play an instrument? If so, the HUMC handbell choir may be the perfect place for you! If you have two hands, we will start you out with two bells and help you figure out where those two bells need to play. We are a group that loves laughing, making music, and spending Tuesday nights together – and we have plenty of space for you!


The handbell choir will have their first rehearsal of the season on Tuesday, October 17th, from 7:00 – 8:00. You are very welcome to drop in and try it. We would love to show you how well you will fit into the bell choir.


Please see Jeannine with any questions or for information.


 

Our little pantry at Sparks of Hope is nearly empty, and our shelves are bare. Members of our recovery community rely on your generosity to see them through the hard times. Please drop off nonperishable groceries when Sparks is open, or leave them inside the pantry.

 
 

 

The Church office is glad to announce that services going forward will be streamed via YouTube Live, in addition to the current Facebook Live services. You can access the Youtube live stream on our Youtube Channel, or directly on our church website homepage.

ANNOUNCEMENTS CALL TO WORSHIP We believe in God, creator of the world and of all people;

and in Jesus Christ, incarnate among us,

who died and rose again;

and in the Holy Spirit,

present with us to guide, strengthen, and comfort.

We believe ;

God, help our unbelief.

We rejoice in every sign of God's Kingdom;

in the upholding of human dignity and community;

in every expression of love, justice and reconciliation;

in each act of self-giving on behalf of others;

in the abundance of God's gifts

entrusted to us that all may have enough;

in all responsible use of the earth's resources. Glory be to God on high;

and on earth, be peace .


We confess our sin, individual and collective,

by silence or action:

through the violation of human dignity

based on race, class, age, sex, nation, or faith;

through the exploitation of people

because of greed and indifference

through the misuse of power

in personal, communal, national, and international life;

through the search for security

by those military and economic forces

that threaten human existence;

through the abuse of technology

which endangers the earth and all life upon it.

Lord, have mercy;

Christ, have mercy;

Lord, have mercy .

We commit ourselves individually and as a community

to the way of Christ:

to take up the cross;

to seek abundant life for all humanity;

to struggle for peace with justice and freedom;

to risk ourselves in faith, hope, and love,

praying that God's kingdom may come. Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

Amen .
