Week Fifteen

The “Dear Church” series explores the pastoral letters of John (1 John, 2 John, 3 John) and the Book of Revelation. Throughout these texts, John encourages the church and helps them navigate living like Jesus in the real world while anticipating the life to come.

Psalm for the Day: Psalm 14

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

O God, because without you we are not able to please you,
mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct
and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
for ever. Amen.

OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE

UMCOR Relief Supply Kits
We will be collecting donations to help those in areas affected by the extreme flooding. Each bucket kit costs $65. You can find more information here. You can give directly to UMCOR online at that link, or make a donation through our church with the note "flood relief". Thank you for being generous.
OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
 
Opportunity to learn about foster care
Currently, Judicial Circuit 5 (which includes Andrew and Buchanan counties) has 74 children in foster care and only 48 licensed homes. Our goal is to increase the number of foster homes in each county so that foster children can stay within their own community. To that end, Healthy Families is once again hosting an information meeting that is open to anyone interested in foster parenting. 
The Most Rewarding Challenge: an introduction to foster parenting 
Tuesday, September 20th – 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. 
Lindbergh Community Center, room 6 (enter on west side of building)
