Something Fishy–Sunday, 23 January 2011

Eww…what is that smell?? Something is fishy around here! Welcome back to the Deer Creek Charge! We’re so glad you stopped by. This week, we will be exploring what it means to follow Christ after we are invited to “come and see.” We will explore what it means to follow Christ even when our minds tell us that it doesn’t make sense, that something is fishy. Check out Matthew 4:12-23 if you want a preview of what’s going on. Come and discover what might have happened if the disciples had not acted immediately when Jesus invited them to “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” We will learn and grow together as we seek to live out Jesus’ teachings in our daily lives.

Announcements:

Arrangements for Jane are as follows: Visitation: TODAY, 2-4pm and 7-9pm at Deer Creek. Funeral service: 10am Monday at Deer Creek. A luncheon will follow at Mt. Tabor.

Please make sure you bring in your food donations for the Mason-Dixon Community Services pantry. We are trying to take another donation to them soon. Location: Mt. Tabor.

Are you interested in becoming a member at either Deer Creek or Mt. Tabor? Please talk to Bonnie and strongly consider taking the new class (below).

Want a refresher course on what it means to be a Christian (and specifically a United Methodist)? Bonnie will be offering a new class that covers the basics of Christian and United Methodist beliefs, history and what it means for us today. There is a possibility of offering it at two separate times if there is enough interest. There will be some reading, homework and a fieldtrip. Possible days/times include Mondays or Tuesdays (day or evening) or Sundays at noon starting in late February. The class will run for 10 weeks, and there will be a small charge for the book (exact cost TBD). Place your name on the sign-up sheet if interested.

Worship Fun Fact!

The Gospel readings for the next several weeks will be focused on the early ministry of Jesus. This will last until Transfiguration Sunday on March 6.
