Into the Whirlwind

Apologies for the last two weeks without posts. Our pastor was out on her

honeymoon!

But this week we’re getting back on track. We’re studying the book of Job the next two weeks. This week we are looking at how God responds to our suffering in surprising, often unsettling ways. Please join us!

CHURCH HAPPENINGS

Join us for a fellowship meal after church at Mount Tabor. This will be followed by a Church Council meeting for Mt. Tabor in preparation for Charge Conference.

Deer Creek’s Church Council will be held Tuesday October 23 at 6:15 pm at Deer Creek. The combined Charge Council will meet directly afterwards at 7. Charge Conference is at 6pm November 6 at Deer Creek. All leadership is invited to attend (but please vote before you come)!

Help feed the Homeless at the Day Shelter (New Hope UMC, Edgewood) on the 3rd Friday of the month (MT) and 4th Monday of each month (DC). Next: October 22 (DC). Let’s not forget to bring the winter clothes we have been collecting!

Knit/Crochet No experience needed— will teach! Make scarves for the homeless or prayer shawls. Meets at 7pm at Mt. Tabor. Next Meeting: October 26.

Join us for bible study on Monday mornings at 10 at Deer Creek! Even if you can’t make it every Monday, we’d love to have you whenever you are free!

Deer Creek will be participating in Samaritans First Shoe Box Christmas initiative. You fill up a shoebox with gifts for children. Shoeboxes are a $7 donation. We will be collecting these donations for the next two weeks! See Tammy for questions!

Choir practice at Deer Creek is at 6 on Thursdays!

*NEXT SUNDAY*, Mt. Tabor will have a joint worship service at 11am with Clark’s Chapel UMC (Kalmia Rd) at their church. Deer Creek is welcome to attend! There will be a quiet, simple prayer service at Deer Creek at 9. All Saint’s Sunday will be observed at both services. Shannon will be preaching. Clark’s is handicapped accessible. We will need people to help with carpooling from Mt. Tabor and to help lead in worship at Clark’s Chapel.

Weekly Reflection: Not a prayer this week, but certainly something to think about. From nakedpastor.com
