Where ARE you, God? (Sunday, 21 August 2011)

Where ARE you, God? Have you ever found yourself asking this question? I think that we all have at some point or another in our lives. This Sunday during worship we will explore this question…Where ARE you, God when it hurts? Where ARE you, God when I face the death of a loved one? Where ARE you, God when I’m in pain and suffering? Where ARE you, God? We can’t promise answers, but we can promise that we’ll explore this together. We’ll be starting a couple of months on the Exodus story and following Moses as he leads God’s people. Today, Moses is born under miraculous conditions. But hundreds and maybe thousands of other babies died while he lived. Where was God in the midst of this tragedy? Where was God for these other families? How do we make sense out of the senseless? Curious? Join us for worship and check out Exodus 1:8-2:10. We’ll see you at the Creek!

There are LOTS of great things happening around Deer Creek and Mt. Tabor right now! Consider this a personal invitation to join us for any or all of the activities and ministries we have. You are ALWAYS welcome! May God bless you and your family as you journey through this thing called “life.” We’d love to join you on this journey…hope to see you soon.

Announcements:

3rd Sunday Fellowship after worship TODAY atMt.Tabor! All are invited.

Mt.Tabor’s Homecoming Committee needs to meet soon. If you would like to be part of this committee, please see Bonnie so we can plan a meeting. If no one comes forward to head up this committee, we will not have Homecoming.

We are looking for people who are not necessarily in current church leadership to help us imagine and vision what “church” can be. Be in prayer to see if God is calling you to help. You may be approached to help with this process that will allow our church leadership to design 5-year goals for our congregations.

The Nominations Committee (combined DC/MT) will meet on TOMORROW at 7pm at Deer Creek. Only current members of the committee should attend.

S/PPRC (combined DC/MT) is postponed. Stay tuned for details.

Backpack and Bus Blessing during worship on NEXT SUNDAY. 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.” Take a flyer and invite a friend, neighbor, or family member to join us for worship!

School Supply Collection at Deer Creek. Please bring in new school supplies NEXT SUNDAY so that we can include them in our blessings and then give them to children in need.

Do you enjoy children? Do you love God? We would love to get a list together of folks who can assist with Sunday School every few weeks or be a substitute teacher. Background check forms required. See Bonnie for a form.

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.

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.

Worship Fun Fact! Stained glass windows were first designed to tell a story to illiterate people. What stories do our windows tell?
