Searching for the Bread of Life August 4, 2012

Sorry for the late post folks! Join us this Sunday as we celebrate communion and talk about the physicality and the connectionality of abundant living that Jesus is referring to when he calls himself the Bread of Life.

Next week we pick back up on the story of David until September begins. September is a very full month for us at the Deer Creek Charge, so mark your calendars and join us in the fun!

CHURCH HAPPENINGS

Rev. Melissa McDade will be on call for Shannon August 5-6 as Shannon gets her wisdom teeth out. Pray for her and don’t laugh if her face swells up! You can reach Rev. McDade by her home phone 410-692-6179.

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: August 17 (MT). We usually meet at each church around 11ish. We need people to make, deliver, and serve food.

Peach Festival at Deer Creek on July 29 was a success! We raised $200, so $100 was donated to UNICEF and the other $100 was donated to wildfire relief in Colorado.

Knit/Crochet No experience needed-will teach! Make scarves for the homeless or prayer shawls. Meets every other Friday at 7pm at Mt. Tabor. Next Meeting: August 10.

Don’t forget the on-going food drives at both Deer Creek and Mt. Tabor!

Let’s Pound the Pastor! Sometime in August, we will have a pounding of the pastor, where we bring a pound of flour/sugar/etc. to welcome Shannon and Aaron. Shannon would love to have you see the parsonage, so keep your eyes peeled for the date!

Blessing of the Backpacks will be on September 2! ALL students (any age!), teachers, aides, schools, buses, bus drivers, parents an anyone else involved with education are welcome to come forward to receive a personal prayer on this day, and children are encouraged to bring their backpacks!

Homecoming at Mt. Tabor will be on September 16. As you know, we will have combined worship at 11 am at Mt. Tabor followed by a potluck luncheon. Rev. Ed Heydt will be preaching! Invitations will go out later this month, but spread the word!

Weekly Devotion: Read Acts 9:36-42

Blessed are you, O God,

who brings forth the bread of new life

from the earth.

As you cause bread to rise

fragrant and warm,

so you call your people to rise,

passionate and fire-formed.

Bless to us

this life-shaped bread, that we may rise

into the newness of life in you.
