DOWNTOWN JACKSON

FIRST EDITION

A Newsletter Publication of First United Methodist Church, Jackson, Tennessee

Our Journey... Now What? “Find Us Faithful!” by David Hollis, Associate Pastor I am convinced that the desire to celebrate is within all people and is a gift from God. God moves us to rejoice, and when many of God’s children come together to rejoice it is meant to be a great party. I think of examples from Scripture: • God celebrating after creating with the joy of satisfied rest • Jesus allowing the celebration to continue at the wedding In Cana of Galilee • Three examples in Luke 15 of a shepherd, a woman, and a father, all celebrating when they find their lost sheep, coin, and son This Sunday will be a celebration at FUMC for all that God has provided and for the faithful response for God’s continued work here. We will gather together for a combined worship service at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary. We will be blessed to have an orchestra providing music for our celebratory worship. After the service, we hope all will stay for lunch in Clayton Hall, so that we can continue conversations of celebration.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS SOON REMEMBER!

Celebration Sunday October 30

10:00 AM Joint Worship Service with Choir, Orchestra, and First Awakening Band • Sanctuary Afterward enjoy “Sunday Dinner” in Clayton Hall Sunday School Classes will not meet

Another blessing we all will celebrate this Sunday is the presence of new musical leaders for FUMC. Jeremy and Allison Tubbs will be joining us as they have accepted the position left by Brandon Goff in August. They will primarily lead the music and creative worship elements for the First Awakening service. I first met Jeremy when I was coming to Lambuth and he was finishing there. His musical giftedness amazed me. I’m not sure of anything Jeremy and Allison Tubbs, he can’t play. Jeremy has a son, Liam (5), and daughter, London (6) Bachelor of Music in guitar performance from Lambuth, as well as a Master of Music in music history and a Ph. D in musicology from the University of Memphis. Jeremy co-directed the E/MI program at Lambuth with Brandon Goff, and now he continues the program with the

University of Memphis at Lambuth. I met Allison when she was leading music for a chapel service at Lambuth. She was sharing songs from a recent album she had released and discussing the faith journey behind the songs. Allison has continued to impress me with the focus she has on excellence in worship, her seemingly effortless talent, and the open faith she displays. With a Bachelor of Arts in speech pathology from Lambuth and a Master of Arts in speech-language pathology and audiology from the University of Memphis, Allison works as a speech pathologist in the Jackson-Madison County School System. They come to us with over ten years of experience in leading worship, primarily in Memphis. Jeremy and Allison's presence serves as a reminder to us of the importance of ongoing sacrificial giving to ensure that FUMC continues to attract the most gifted and passionate people for leadership positions. To do so, our support and facilities must be of the highest caliber, and thanks be to God for the faithfulness over many generations that has brought us where we are. This is what we will celebrate on Sunday! I hope you will all join us and rejoice at what God is doing here.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in the Annual Giving 2012 and Capital Improvements effort by returning your Estimate of Giving cards.

If you were not present Sunday during worship, please mail your cards this week. Giving is one of the spiritual disciplines and at FUMC the primary way to participate is by committing to give proportionately and regularly. See page 3 for History of Operating Budget

MANY THANKS TO ALL SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES SERVING AS VOLUNTEERS THIS WINTER! SERVING OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS:

In addition to the nights we commit to host, there are sometimes cancellations that occur leaving an opening on the Room in the Inn calendar. Because we are so close to the Area Relief Ministries office, we are one of the first churches to be called on to fill such an opening. We would love to have a "Room in the Inn First Responder Team" made up of those whose class/group is not able to host a night, or who simply want to support the program above and beyond the normal commitment. The need for such a team may not even arise with more churches than ever hosting, but we want to be prepared just in case. We especially need men on this team who would commit to spend the night. Also, you would not be committing to filling every vacancy, as the church facilities would have to be open to accommodating Room in the Inn as well. Please contact Sharon Matthews or Niki Shires if you are interested in serving on this team."

Attention All Sunday School Members!

Our Journey... Now What? Why An Estimate of Giving? Each family’s Estimate of Annual Giving, combined with the commitments of others, forms the basis of planning for the coming year. The annual budget for each year is based on the total estimates made by all members. The Finance Committee analyzes historical giving patterns and, from the total commitments for the coming year, they: • Subtract a percentage for shrinkage - estimates that will not be completed due to deaths, moves or change in circumstances (Last year that figure was 7%). • Add a percentage for gifts given over the estimated amounts (Last year, 2%). • Add a percentage for other gifts (Last year, 6%). • Add other revenue, like fees for building use, books, directories, etc. (Last year, 1%).

Second Annual

Sunday School Challenge Through November 2

Winners will be announced Nov. 6 Grand Prize: Brunch by Gena

The class with the highest percentage of members turning in Estimate of Giving cards, both Annual Giving and Capital Improvements, will be treated to a delicious brunch on Sunday, November 13th. What if all classes have 100% participation? FUMC will host a very large brunch!

NEW

The result is the figure the Finance Committee uses for revenue for the coming year. As is demonstrated in the chart and figures below, the pattern of giving was on an upward trajectory from 1996 to 2008; but following the financial difficulties of 2008, it has trended down. As good stewards, the Finance Committee has always been committed to approving a balanced budget and that will be true for next year’s budget, too. Work will begin right away on the 2012 budget and when it is approved, it will be reported in this publication. It is usually after the first of the year before this work is complete, because knowing how one year ended helps in decision making for the next year.

Security

by Bob Shuttleworth

Two things to consider for home safety.... • Back your car into your garage or leave it in your driveway with the front facing out. This system will allow you to make a much quicker exit in case of an emergency. • Place your car keys on the table beside your bed when you sleep at night. If you hear an intruder, press the panic button on your keys. This will deter most intruders because they want to achieve their purpose with little or no attention. Secondly, it will alert your neighbors. The panic alarm will continue until you shut if off or until the battery goes down. After a while, it will certainly garner a good bit of attention. Be safe....be vigilant....and be well.

Note of Appreciation “It amazes Cindy and me how blessed we are by this church. We realize that there are so many great needs in our community and in our own congregation. It is humbling and sincerely appreciated to receive such an unexpected and generous donation to use for Jill’s care. It is very needed and will be applied to her most pressing needs. We see our church doing so many great things in this community over and beyond. The pastors, other leaders and members of the congregation have contributed greatly to our spiritual growth; often making life feel deeper, better and with “joy beyond understanding.” We are so fortunate to be a part of this church. Thank you so much for the many ways you bless us.” - Love, Steve and Cindy Spring
