Sunday, 31 July 2011

Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge! We’re thrilled you are here and are praying for you. This Sunday, we will have a guest preacher, Samantha Torgersen. Samantha is preparing for ordination in the UMC and will be starting her ministry placement as a prison chaplain this fall. Come out and join us to hear the Word of God that Samantha will bring to us this week. Her passage is Matthew 14:13-21 about Jesus performing a miracle. He fed 5,000 people with 5 small loaves of bread and 2 fish! God can make big things happen with very little. What big thing is God working on in your life right now?

Announcements:

TODAY we welcome a guest preacher, Samantha Torgersen. Samantha is a second year MDiv student at Wesley Seminary, and will be starting her ministry placement as a prison chaplain this fall. Please welcome her warmly.

Did you bring your faith box back this week? If not, there’s still time to do so! Please bring it back next week. We will be using them in worship over the course of the summer. If you don’t know what a “faith box” is, please see Bonnie for supplies.

Don’t forget the on-going food drives at both Deer Creek andMt.Tabor! Even when we go away for the summer, hunger does not go away. Please remember to bring in your non-perishable items.

Mark Your Calendars:

It’s hard to believe that school begins in about a month! Be sure to come out to worship on Sunday, August 28th for a Backpack and Bus Blessing! We will say a special prayer for all of our students, teachers, schools, buses, bus drivers, and parents. Bring your backpack, your bus, or any other “tool of the trade.”

Annual Charge Conference: Sunday, October 30th at 12:30pm at Deer Creek (MT attends). More details will be coming, as will several meetings. Be thinking and praying for ways in which you can serve God through your congregation.

Worship Fun Fact! The first hymn today, “Seek Ye First,” was written in 1971 following a Bible study on Matthew 6:33. It was shared informally and soon became a standard song of the “Jesus Movement,” whose music became known as “Contemporary Christian.” (Excerpted from: Carlton R. Young, Companion to The United Methodist Hymnal, Abingdon Press, (Nashville: 1993) 578).
