This Sunday in Worship

                         Matthew 6:21
                    2 Corinthians 9:11
                        1 John 4:15-20

                  "MONEY MATTERS" 

                       Rev. Cindy Kaupp

We hope to see you in church this Sunday.  We have an exciting day planned.   Our new prayer garden/gazebo will be dedicated, we have a pot luck celebration lunch planned, and it is the day we bring forth our monetary pledges for the year. 
(Matthew 6:21)
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  
From the book "Shiney Gods" by Mike Slaughter, here are five of the insights that are written:
1. God has promised to provide for all our needs.
2. We have accountability with God for using the resources that he has placed in our hands to serve God’s redemptive purpose in the world. 
3. One of the first and foremost purposes of wealth is to serve as God’s means of provision in our own lives. 
4. God equips us to witness to the world through our generosity. 
5. People will believe us not because we say the right words or believe the right things. They will believe us when they see that we are committed to right actions.
People will believe us when they see that WE are committed to the right actions.  What are you committed to?   Hope to see you this Sunday.

Friends, please join us this Sunday as we celebrate the financial commitment you have pledged to your church.  It is by your generosity that our church  is succeeding in spreading the word of God.  We are asking you to bring your favorite dish to share in a potluck lunch immediately following the dedication service.  Also please wear your  “I Love My Church” t-shirt that Sunday as we hope to take a group picture of all in attendance. Our District Superintendent may be with us in worship. We look forward to a great day and a successful pledge campaign!
Join Us This Evening for Trunk or Treat Fun!
Crosby Lane’s Harmonies Lead Our Worship

Read Psalm 131

Psalm Prayer: 

“How majestic are your ways, great God of life! Although we know much, we still understand so little. Yet in Jesus Christ you have offered us “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3). May we therefore clothe ourselves in his humility that we might receive the gifts you have placed in the treasure trove of his heart. Amen."

Our Prayer Gazebo
and Garden Are Ready!
Thanks to the contributions of many, our Mike Cannon Prayer Garden is complete, and ready for a service of dedication.  Please join Pastor Susie and Pastor Cindy immediately following worship this Sunday around our new Prayer Garden as we dedicate the garden to the glory of God and in memory of Mike Cannon, whose wife Linda has generously given us the funds to construct this beautiful asset to our campus.

This addition to our campus will bless our church for many years to come.
Meet Our Sponsored Children in Tanzania!
Because of your generosity, Edwin and Joseph will go to school - all expenses paid - for another year at the King Emmanuel School at Gamasara UMC in Gamasara, Tanzania. Both boys’ families had suffered financial reversals and Joseph and Edwin would have had to stay home, had it not been for for contributions. Thank you!
Our UM missionary, Bernadette St. Amand, will send us pictures and videos of the boys and their school, all throughout the coming year, so that we can follow them as they grow in “wisdom and in stature”!
Join us as we spruce up our campus and buildings. Come out on Saturday morning at 8am, November 3rd. Bring your broom, mop bucket, cleaning rags and a great attitude. Let’s get ready for fall. Hope to see everyone here! 
Don’t forget to turn your clocks BACK an hour when you go to bed next Saturday, Nov. 3!
The PrimeTimers group will meet on Wednesday, November 7th, immediately following the “Sunday Scriptures” Bible Study. Everyone is invited to join them for lunch at Cracker Barrell, 790 E. I-10 Service Road, Slidell.  If you have any questions, please give Marsha Felder a call at 985-290-5366.
