Transformed (Sunday, 19 February 2012)

Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge! We are excited by the many things going on here, and would LOVE for you to be a part of them! This week, we have TWO soup/sandwich dinners–one at each church–on Sunday (lunch at Mt. Tabor, dinner at Deer Creek), as well as a Pancake Supper on Tuesday at Mt. Tabor. There’s no reason to go hungry this week…we have physical nourishment and spiritual nourishment for you! Don’t forget the Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday too…this is a community service with our brothers and sisters from Clark’s Chapel UMC and New Hope UMC. Their pastor, Rev. Mark Groover, will be bringing the message. We will have communion and the imposition of ashes. See details for all of these things in the announcements below.

This Sunday, we will be looking at the Transfiguration of Jesus–this is a fancy way of saying that Jesus was “transformed.” But I wonder…was it really Jesus who was transformed, or was it the disciples (Peter, James, and John) who were with him that were transformed? Check out Mark 9:2-10a and decide for yourself…then come out on Sunday morning and see what others have to say. You and your family are ALWAYS welcome! We can’t wait to see you!

Announcements:

Third Sunday Fellowship TODAY after worship! Join us for soup, sandwiches, fellowship and fun! All are welcome! Location: Mt. Tabor.

Offering Envelopes: Are now available at Deer Creek and Mt. Tabor. Please pick yours up if you have not. Also…if you miss a week, don’t forget to “make up” the missed week(s) when you return. You may be gone, but the church still counts on you to meet our bills and obligations. Everyone counts…every amount counts. Thanks from the financial folks.

Help feed the Homeless at the Day Shelter (New Hope UMC, Edgewood) on the 3rd FRIDAY (MT) and 4th MONDAY (DC) of each month (next: Feb. 27). We need people to make, deliver, and serve food. A sign up sheet is on the bulletin board.

Prayer List at Deer Creek: Placing someone on the prayer list? Please bring their address (mailing preferred, email ok) and give it to Janet so that we can send them a card to let them know we are praying for them—joys or concerns!

Worship Fun Fact! Today is called “Transfiguration (Transformation) Sunday.” After Epiphany, we celebrated Jesus’ baptism. This is the other “bookend” to the season…right before we start lent on Ash Wednesday. Consider joining us as we kick-start the season before Easter this Wednesday! Children are welcomed and encouraged to attend! (Children’s message/bulletins available).
