Mooned By God (Sunday, 23 October 2011)

Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge! We had an AWESOME Homecoming celebration last week. If you weren’t there, you missed a phenomenal message, teriffic music, and scrumptious food! Mark your calendars for next year…you won’t want to miss this! This Sunday, we are back to our “normal” schedule–worship at Deer Creek at 9am and Mt. Tabor at 11am. But worship of God is never “normal.” Each time, it is exciting, new, different, challenging, and amazing. Don’t believe me? Haven’t ever experienced this in church before? Come on out and see what Spirit-filled worship can be like!

This week, our sermon title is “Mooned By God.” Intrigued? Good. Check out Exodus 33:12-23 if you want a preview. Can you figure out why the sermon has this title? We’ll be singing some old favorite hymns…you’ll even learn the “back story” on one of them: “Rock of Ages.” Next Sunday is a BIG Sunday for us at the Deer Creek Charge! Bible distribution, new members joining/adult baptism, Charge Conference…Be sure to check out the announcements for more info. The following week, we will have a worship schedule change (Nov. 6). Check out the details below. You are ALWAYS welcome…please join us! May God bless you and keep you safe from the storms of life.

Announcements:

There will be NO BIBLE STUDY at Deer Creek tomorrow. We will resume next Monday. Mt.Tabor’s session continues with session 4.

If you are not a member of either Deer Creek or Mt. Tabor, but regularly attend (at least 2x/month) and would like to join, please see Bonnie. We would love to welcome you into our family! No classes needed—just a conversation. Join NEXT SUNDAY.

Bibles will be presented to the children at Deer Creek NEXT SUNDAY during the children’s message. Please make every effort to have your child present.

We will observe All Saints’ Sunday on Sunday, November 6. Please submit names that you would like to be recognized during worship. (Deer Creek ONLY).

On Sunday, November 6, Mt. Tabor will have a joint worship service at 11am withClark’s Chapel UMC (Kalmia Rd) at their location. Communion and All Saint’s Sunday will be observed. Bonnie will be preaching. It is handicapped accessible. We will need people to help with carpooling fromMt.Tabor and to help lead in worship atClark’s Chapel. Please let Bonnie know how you can help.

We are working on a Children’s Christmas Eve Program at Deer Creek. We would like for all of the children (and any willing adults!) to participate. Practices will be during Sunday School, and probably one Saturday. If you are interested in helping with “The Grumpy Shepherd” please see Cathy.
