Along the Road (Sunday, 8 May 2011)

Happy Mother’s Day to all our mom’s (and those who may not have biological children, but “mother” the rest of us!). We are grateful for you. But we are also more grateful for a God who is both Father and Mother to us. Join us this week as we recognize our women with a special litany. We will also have a sermon called, “Along the Road” about a strange encounter with Jesus after his Resurrection. You can find it in Luke 24:13-35. We’ll talk about the surprising places we find Christ…and that even when we don’t think that he is there, he is journeying with us. It’s going to be great! You won’t want to miss it!

We have a TON of things going on around our charge! Be sure to read the announcements below for more details. We look forward to seeing you! May God bless your journey. You are not alone.

Announcements:

Have you ever wondered how you can join the congregation of Deer Creek or Mt.Tabor? If you are interested in making a profession of faith (first time joining a church as a youth or adult), or transferring your membership from another congregation, please see Bonnie so that we can find a time to chat briefly about what membership means and what you are professing (as well as get info if you are transferring). New members will officially join the congregation on Pentecost (June 12th). If you can’t make it that day, we can find another Sunday that works.

NEXT SUNDAY as part of our Bible Study, we will be taking a trip to the Strawbridge Shrine in New Windsor (Carroll County) which is the location of the First American Conversion to Methodism. We will go on a tour, hosted by the curator. The trip is open to all (even if you are not in the study). There is no cost (freewill donations accepted). (Future trips to other sites are in the works). Depart FROM MT. TABOR (carpool) at 1pm. Return by 6pm.

If you would like to donate to the relief and recovery efforts after the tornadoes in the South, you can donate through UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). Make checks payable to “BW Conference Treasurer” with “UMCOR Advance #3021326—Spring Storms” in the memo line. Place it in the offering plate.

3rd Sunday Fellowship atMt.Tabor will be NEXT SUNDAY. Join us for food, fun and fellowship immediately after worship!

The annual Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, May 21, 8am-1pm. If you have items to donate or would like to purchase a table, please contact Sandy or Jean. Location: Mt. Tabor.

Scripture Readers are needed at Deer Creek. You don’t have to be a “perfect” reader—the scripture is provided in advance, so you can practice. Training can be provided. Sign up on the clipboard. Please consider serving God in this way.

Summer camp brochures are available! Friends, Fun, Faith…learn about God in the outdoors while having a fabulous time! Camps for all interests and all ages, including families. Scholarships are available. Talk to Bonnie for details., grab a brochure, or go online to www.bwccampsandretreats.org.

Worship Fun Fact! The ancient Christian name for the season of Easter is Pasch, derived from the Hebrew pesah (“deliverance” or “passover”), thus connecting the Resurrection to the Exodus.
