This Sunday in Worship

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

“The Holy Spirit: The Power”

Rev. Cindy Kaupp
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I didn’t come preaching God’s secrets to you like I was an expert in speech or wisdom. I had made up my mind not to think about anything while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and to preach him as crucified. I stood in front of you with weakness, fear, and a lot of shaking. My message and my preaching weren’t presented with convincing wise words but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power. I did this so that your faith might not depend on the wisdom of people but on the power of God.
Join us this Sunday at 10:00 AM in worship as we give praise to God for sending us His Holy Spirit.

Read Psalm 119:73-80

Psalm Prayer:
Dearest Lord, you have gently fashioned each one of us in your loving image. May we delight in your word and meditate on your precepts every day with great joy. And may those who see us see your gentle love. Amen.

Friends, please join us on Sunday, October 28, 2018 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
It’s Time for the Big Reveal!
Pastor Susie promised that, if we could raise enough money to support a child for a year at the Emmanuel School in Gamasara, Tanzania, she would dye her hair some crazy shade. YOU DID IT - and much more - we’ve raised enough to send TWO children to school, all expenses paid. Thanks be to God!
So in recognition of your generosity, we held a drawing last Sunday to determine who would get to choose a neon hair color for our senior pastor. The winner (after Pastor Susie’s name was drawn first!) was Marsha Felder, and Marsha chose a deep purple shade. So flattering - thanks, Marsha.
So through the generosity of the owners and stylists at Lux Salon in Baton Rouge, Pastor Susie will be getting her hair dyed purple tomorrow - for free! A great cause has been served, new connections have been established with our Methodist brothers and sisters in Tanzania and United Methodist missionary, Bernadette St. Amand, and we’ve all discovered how much fun it is to gently humiliate the pastor!
Please join us on Sunday for the Big Reveal, and a special Thank You from Gamasara’s children.
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 on Sunday, October 28th 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.

Please put our dedication on your calendar. This addition to our campus will bless our church for many years to come.
Please Give the Gift of Life: This Sunday!
Drink plenty of liquids before and after donating, bring a photo ID, and helps save lives. Free t-shirt for all donors, PLUS our kids will receive a $10 donation to the youth group for every donation!
Our young disciples will help lead worship this Sunday - please join us in encouraging and appreciating their unique and important contributions to the Body of Christ. All children are welcome to participate: Rehearsal begins at 9 in the sanctuary.
We’re Collecting Candy…
…for our town’s Trunk or Treat. All kinds of candy, as well as small Christian-themed items, are welcome. There’s a collection basket in the Gathering Room.
We’re participating in Pearl River’s Trunk or Treat on October 26 from 6 to 9 PM. We’ll have a “trunk” - you supply the “treats” - and our kids and adults will represent PRUMC as we mingle, play games, and have fun!
Come join Rudi Polderman and the men of PRUMC on Thursday evening, October 18th,  at 7:00pm in the Gathering Room for a brief devotional. Men of all ages are welcome. Come by early and enjoy a light meal with the Ladies Ministry Team at 6:30pm. 
The Ladies Ministry Team invites you to join them as they take a field trip to Destrehan Plantation. They will stroll through the home, the slave quarters and the gardens Saturday, October 20th. We will caravan from the church, departing at 8:45. We will join together and enjoy lunch. Please sign up on the clipboard in the Gathering Room. Irene Wenner or Marsha Felder will be happy to answer any questions, or call the church office at 985-863-7452.

JB Brown and Jonathan Kolb man the grill at the Wild Game Cookoff in Slidell last Saturday. The cookoff benefits CCC - Christian Community Concern, a non-profit organization that helps the needy with food, clothing, housing, jobs training and in many more vital ways. Thanks, guys, for helping with a great fundraiser!
Pastor Cindy blessed MANY cats and dogs at last Sunday’s Blessing of the Pets - thank you to all who came out, and took home a newly-blessed companion animal! We were marking the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, with a blessing, and an information table on pet ownership and spaying and neutering.
