July 2013 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:16-21 This passage found in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is one of my favorites, a powerful and inspirational reminder of the depth and power of God’s love and the wondrous and unlimited possibilities of God’s work in the world! My heart swells with excitement and anticipation and I get goose bumps every time I read it. Oh, how I long to be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God and to share this love that surpasses knowledge with others. I wonder where and in what ways God is going to show us that he can do more than we can ever ask or imagine next! As a Christian community, we are called into partnership with God. A partnership is defined as a relationship between individuals or groups that is characterized by mutual cooperation and responsibility for the achievement of a specified goal. Partnership is a community sharing a common focus with each member making some contribution. Faith UMC is charged with the responsibility of forming a partnership that exists to live out the mission of Christ (Matthew 28:16-20). Our congregation is blessed with the joy and privilege of serving the Lord together. This partnership is a precious gift. Part of the excitement of belonging to Christian community is trusting God as he calls us to partner with him in his work in the world. Often that means participating in what might seem impossible. I hope you find that exciting! We will not always know where God will lead us, but we are reminded that we can trust God because he is able to do far beyond all we could ever ask or imagine. Our partnership with God releases God’s miraculous power in us. As we become rooted and established in the love of Christ we are able to grasp the depth of this love and trust God as he leads us to do what might seem impossible. This summer our congregation is called to trust God and believe that he will do more than we could ever ask or imagine as we seek to reach out to families in our community as an Act of Grace through Faith’s Camp Read-A-Lot and Kingdom Rock VBS. We are trusting and believing as we plan and prepare small groups and Sunday school classes for this fall’s church-wide sermon and study series, The Story, so that children, youth, and adults might experience God’s word in fresh new ways! May God’s power be at work in and through us as we seek to live out the mission of Christ here at Faith UMC! Blessings, Kathy Schmucker, Director of Christian Education & Spiritual Formation

Are You Playing For Keeps With Your Words? We have all heard the old phrase, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” This old saying was taught to us, probably as children, as a means to deflect the negative words that others would say about us. However, as I quickly found out there was little truth to this statement as the negative words of others cut through me rapidly and altered my way of life. The most evident example that I can think of this occurring was during my sophomore and junior years of high school. Read the full story at If you are struggling today with your words and wondering if they are making a difference, remember the words that authors Reggie Joiner and Kristin Ivy share in their book Playing for Keeps, “But even when you don’t know it, your words have the power to help kids and teenagers win” (p. 82). Your words have the ability to help your children/students win so take the time to learn another language, weigh your words carefully, and recycle the big ideas of others to have a greater impact. The lives of our children/students are extremely important so we need to be intentional about investing our words into their lives so we can direct their life in a positive direction that they will live out forever. We look forward to partnering with you and sharing in this discussion as we seek to impact the next generation with the combined influence of parents and the church!

Youth Mission Trip News: As you are reading this our students and adults are serving in Rockford, Illinois on our annual summer mission trip. We would like to thank you for your partnership and investment in the lives of the next generation as we share God’s love with others in needs. We look forward to sharing about our experiences with you on Sunday, July 14th during the morning worship services. Thank you again for your support and if you have any questions about the trip, feel free to contact Susan Arnold ( or Donny Bell ( or Matt Hart ( Thank you for your partnering with this life-changing ministry!

Christ Caring for People through People! History of Stephen Ministries In 1975 Rev. Kenneth C. Haugk, Ph.D., a pastor and clinical psychologist, saw that people's needs for care in his congregation and community far exceeded what he alone could provide. He developed materials to train nine members of his congregation to provide quality, one-toone Christian care to individuals experiencing a life crisis. Inspired by Acts 6:1-7 in which Stephen is identified as one of the first laypeople set aside to do caring ministry, he commissioned these nine individuals as Stephen Ministers. They were linked with people with a variety of needs for care. "Stephen Ministry" was so successful in his church that other congregations wanted to become involved. Out of that humble beginning more than a quarter century ago there are now thousands of congregations with Stephen Ministry. More than 500,000 lay people representing 150 Christian denominations have been trained, who in turn have ministered to more than a million care receivers. We are very grateful to our leaders for their foresight and to our congregation for their support!

A Reflection on Theological Worlds As FUMC begins its worship and study series on ‘The Story’, learning about theological worlds will help us appreciate and understand better how different people engage and interpret scripture. This will also help us appreciate God’s story at work in each of our own stories. I had the pleasure of attending an orientation about theological worlds on June 9th with Pastor Steve and others from the congregation. Not only was it interesting and fun to find out how I am likely to view and engage in learning and participating as part of Faith Church, but I became more self-aware of how I can interact and grow within our church and with others who are just like me and others who are not like me at all. It is less relevant that we are different in our perspectives and more relevant that we appreciate those differences as we grow together as a body of Christ. May God Bless each of us as individuals and all of us as one family in Him. Sandy Vaughn, Chair of Education and Spiritual Formation Ministry Team. Look for another opportunity to learn more about Theological Worlds with Pastors Steve & Cara on Sunday September 1st & 15th during the Sunday School hour!

Faith Date Night – Develop the Heart Coming the second Friday of the month starting in September!

Faith UMC has a strong desire to focus on nurturing family relationships through faith. This fall, we invite any adult couples (engaged, newly married or seasoned marriages) and single parents to come join us for a short program focusing on nurturing family relationships, followed by an evening of childcare (ages birth-6th grade) while you enjoy some time to yourselves to focus on the relationships in your life.

Sharing Your Story

The experience is being created so that all are welcome- couples and single parents, with or without children. The children who participate will have an evening with fun activities including games and activities designed to help children grow in their faith. This ministry provides families with a specific time to set aside to nurture your relationships… whether that be with a spouse, yourself or with God.

This fall we will be exploring a church-wide sermon and study series called The Story. We’ll be getting to the heart of God’s story as we experience the Bible as one continuing story of God and His people. We are looking for people willing to share their story through a weekly devotion based on each week’s scripture. If you have a passion for writing and are willing to share how you experience God’s story, please contact Kathy Schmucker for more information.

Launching this ministry also creates a great opportunity for folks to be part of the team developing and coordinating the activities for the adults and children, as well as for volunteers to supervise the children during the evening! Please contact Tallie Paz at or Kathy Schmucker at with questions or if you'd like to to be involved in any way with this ministry!

Wednesday Night Faith Connections Planning Team Faith UMC has a vital Wednesday Night Ministry for children and adults available each year from September – May.

Attention all Faith Cooks! We have a newly forming Ministry Task Group forming under the Membership Care Ministry Team. This is a Food Ministry which falls under Helping Hands and is being coordinated by Nancy Share. This ministry is intended for members who have a short term need for meals at home. Perhaps it is a new mom and dad with their baby, a member who has just returned home from surgery, or a member who has been in an accident and is having a hard time getting around. Could you please help by providing a meal to a member in need? Nancy is currently looking for volunteers who are willing to prepare a meal. Please call her at 330-212-5136 or email her at if she can add you to her list. We are hoping to have enough people on our list that we won’t have to ask you for help more than once or twice a year.
