Celebrating 51 Years

October 2012

On October 21st, Chapel Hill UMC will start its 2nd churchwide campaign in 2012. This study is from Rick Warren of Saddleback Church titled “40 Days in the Word”. During our 6

week journey, we will love the word, learn the word, and live the word. Pastor Ted will teach us how to be not only a “hearer” of the Word, but also a “doer” of God’s Word. All small groups

are encouraged to go through the study and there will also be new groups formed! If you do not see a day/time that works for you, please let Sarah Courtney know~ Thanks

Welcome to our Newest Members Chapel Hill UMC welcomes our newest members. We are so glad to have you in the Chapel Hill Family!

“Making Disciples for Jesus Christ”

Now is the Time Campaign Extended Six Months Our “Now is the Time” 3 year financial campaign to help pay for our new children and youth building will be ending this November. The leadership of the church (Admin.

Council) had an open meeting in September to discuss our options and unanimously chose to extend our campaign for 6 months until we can begin a new campaign. Our prayer is those who

have not been able to fulfill their pledge will do so and those who have fulfilled their pledge will continue to give. Thank you for your support and help in the ministry God has given us!

Fall Harvest Festival church wide event The Fellowship team will be hosting the Corn Maze at Cates’ Farms Sunday October 28th at 4:00 p.m.. This is a Church Wide event so mark your calendar. Hot dogs, buns, condiments and paper

products will be provided. We would like for those with the last name starting with A through M to bring chips and cold drinks or juice boxes and those with last names starting with N through Z to

bring desserts and cold drinks and juice boxes. The cost will be $6.00 per person tickets and $20.00 per family (children under 3 are free) will be available at the church office on October 1st.

Update on the 11:00 a.m. Service As you are aware, the 11:00 a.m. service has made the move to a “very” traditional service. This service Page 2

follows the traditional United Methodist order of worship, featuring traditional hymns from the hymnal, piano and “ Ma k i n g D i s c i p l e s f o r J e s u s C h r i s t ”

organ accompaniment, recitation of creeds and acolytes. We hope to see you during the 11:00 a.m. service in the sanctuary to support this service.

As you have no doubt heard, the Trustees are attempting to get the yard work done behind the church. Our current plan is to have the areas of the yard along each side of the stairs and just above the rain gardens tilled so that we may put down sod. The remainder of the yard in the back will be amended to better support the growth of grass and then reseeded. Originally we scheduled the excavating company to work Thursday and Friday, September 20th and 21st, with the intent of putting down

the sod on Saturday, September 22nd. Of course that did not happen because of the weather forecast. Hopefully, we will be able to get this work done in the next week or so. A roll of sod weighs 45-50 pounds so anyone who can help carry the sod are greatly needed. Of course, the sod must be rolled out and pinned down as well so those who cannot carry the sod can help with this. No skills or tools are required but gloves are recommended. We will begin working on

Beginning this year, the Stewardship Committee is functioning separately from the Finance Committee. In the past Finance was responsible for both areas. We have worked hard to clarify the unique role and purpose of the Stewardship Committee at Chapel Hill: To educate and encourage our church in the responsible management of the resources God has provided us (time/ talent/financial). We have identified specific goals and objectives to fulfill this purpose. We have a very small team today, but are working hard to make a difference in our church. I’d like to share just a few things we are working on:  Long term growth and security – we have met with financial specialists and are investigating plans for our Page 7

that you would be in prayer from where ever you are. Thank you so much! Paul and Brenda W. Herron, Prayer Campaign Coordinators “Pray that the Master’s Word will simply take off and race through the country to a groundswell of response, just as it did among you.” 2 Thessalonians. 3:1 (MSG)

from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. PRAYER MATTERS

Our church, along with many other churches around the world, is embarking on a spiritual growth campaign called 40 Days in the Word. In preparation for this 40 Days in the Word emphasis, it is important to remember that God's power is unleashed through our prayers. It is prayer that ultimately brings the power of God into this process, transforming lives and bringing lasting change to our church and community. When prayer touches the fuse of God's power, amazing things can happen! Prayer is the simplest form of communication that we have with God. It is during times of reflection and quietness that we hear him speaking to our hearts and renewing us in his presence. Although prayer is a special time of praising God, confessing our sins, and expressing our own needs to Him, it is also a time for each of us to ask him to be working in our family, marriage, church, small group, neighborhood, workplace, community, and world. There will be 30 minute increment sign ups in the narthex. Be sure to stop by the prayer table. If you are not able to come to the church, we would also appreciate

7 Days of Prayer DAY 1 (Sun., Oct. 14) God, I pray …that we will dedicate ourselves to prayer for the 40 Days in the Word campaign. Get us spiritually ready for what you want to do. We know that without your power we will labor in vain. Encourage us to saturate these important 40 days in prayer. …for our senior pastor as he leads us. We also pray that your protection will surround his family and him. We ask you to fill him with your Spirit and strengthen him. DAY 2 (Mon., Oct. 15) God, I pray …for the campaign Director and Team, that they will complete their work for your glory. I pray that they will honor you in all they do and say; that they will experience your grace and favor as they serve you. Give them wisdom and strength as they give direction for this campaign in our church. …that we would authentically hunger for spiritual transformation in our church and for lasting Kingdom fruit in our community.

Staff Parrish Relations Hi Chapel Hill, as we get into the swing of fall this year, don’t forget to thank all the church staff that help organize and keep things going for our church. This is a very busy time of the year for us here at Chapel Hill. Children are starting to prepare for a Christmas play, different seasonal events are planned from special music events to family gatherings, new small groups are forming and much O C T O B E R 20 1 2

much more! I am always proud to say I am a member of Chapel Hill to people and then tell them everything we have going on for everyone in their family. We are definitely a blessed church to have such a dedicated group of people working at Chapel Hill. As I announced in all three services a couple of weeks ago, we were in the process of hiring three temporary part time children

will join a 40 Days in the Word small group or Sunday school class, and that they will experience deeper relationships and changed lives. Prepare the leaders of those groups and classes; equip them for this vital ministry. …that each person in our church family will commit to memorizing a Bible verse each week for 40 days. DAY 4 (Wed, Oct. 17) God, I pray …for the seven weekend services and the impact they will have on your people. DAY 5 (Thurs., Oct. 18) God, I pray …for our spiritual growth, that we will deepen our faith as we learn to live out your five purposes: worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and mission. DAY 6 (Fri., Oct. 19) God, I pray …for our Celebration Sunday, that it will be a true celebration of all that you have accomplished in us and through us during the 40 Days in the Word campaign. …that through the impact of this campaign, people would commit their lives to your Son, Jesus Christ, who gives us purpose. Use this campaign to help our church to reach our to our community more effectively with the Good News. DAY 7 (Sat., Oct. 20) God, I pray …as the campaign begins tomorrow, that every person in our church would be open and receptive to the message of the campaign, and that they would commit to living out the five purposes for which they were created. …that we would be excited about the difference prayer can make, and that prayer would permeate the next 40 days.
