Put these dates on your calendar. 4 Told is coming on July 21 and 22. 4 Told will bring their music ministry to Anthony. Over the past six years 4 Told has become a well recognized quartet singing Gospel music in the Kansas area. Coming from Russell Kansas, 4 Told brings a quality sound with a great presentation. They will be How long did they really live during Noah’s at the Anthony United Methodist Church at 7:00 Saturday Night on the time? What civilization in the Bible was 21 and then will be at the regular the first to develop the following: agriculture, animal husbandry, writing, mathemat- church service on the 22 at 10:50 AM. 0n June 3rd I am beginning a sermon series on the Old Testament. In this study will be looking at how several Old Testament personalities meet God and how God related to them in their historical setting. Let me ask you several questions that might provide you with a hint as to what I will be talking about.

ics, sailing on open sea, trading with other cultures, irrigation, founding cities, and organized religion? Who in the Old Testament was in hock to a lone shark? Who in the Old Testament had a personal army of 318 men who defeated four cities? What about all of these covenants? Why were they fascinated by blood? Why did the older bother get every thing? 0The reason we ask these questions about ancient cultures is to find out why and how the people during Old Testament days lived and related to God. Many times their customs and reasoning seems to be totally unrelated to today’s world. But if we look into the culture and social fabric of why things were done the way they were done, we can connect our culture and society today with the lives they lived. If you miss a Sunday we put the service on CD and you can pick one up at the office. Terry McGuire

Half of the Philippines’ 101 million people, and most of its poor, live in depressed rural areas, many barely surviving by farming. They suffer from historic inequality in the distribution of land and resources, resulting in high unemployment, hunger, illiteracy and violent conflicts between insurgents and government forces. But United Methodists there are making connections in order to make a difference. A small grant funded by the Peace with Justice Sunday offering helps Filipinos in the Southern Tagalog region build faith-based partnerships to foster solutions to the poverty and injustice that burdens this tiny nation. Through its Just Peace League, the Southern Tagalog Provisional Philippines Annual Conference East teaches youth and adults to struggle alongside communities for justice, economic sustainability and peace. The United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) joined the league at its Kongreso ng Kabataan, or Congress of Youth, in 2011. Bible study, lectures and group activities helped nearly 70 young people become more informed and involved leaders in peace with justice ministry. “It was organized to let our youth have a voice on different issues of our society, especially around agriculture,” reported UMYFP president Angelica Justiniano.

Rev. Jeff Miller has accepted a position in the ministry and will be able to stay in Wichita as hoped. Rev. Jeff will be Pastor at Towanda & Greenwich in Wichita East District. We wish both Rev. Jeff & Vicki the best in their new endeavor.


Feeding families around the world...and around the corner.


Anthony Youth Care about World Hunger On the opposite page you will find a poster of the Anthony Ministerial Alliance endorsed World Hunger. We will be having this work day bagging food at the Christian Church on June 9th. Anyone and everyone will be able to participate in this Mission project. We would like to know when you can be at the bagging of the food to help this well needed cause. There is a schedule in the South Narthex for you to sign up for the time you will be able to represent Anthony United Methodist Church. If you cannot be at the bagging of the food on June 9th a donation is greatly appreciated. $100 will feed one person for one year. Won’t you help us help them? Please help feed families around the world and the corner. If you have any questions you may call the church office and Connie or Rev. Terry will find the answer for you. This is a community effort and if you have time or can make time to help out, it would be greatly appreciated. Proverbs 28:27 He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses. Isaiah 58:10 If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

What Can We Do About World Hunger? There is a work day for the bagging of the food on June 9th at the Anthony Christian Church Activities Center sponsored by the Anthony Ministerial Alliance. We need your help. If you can help even for a half hour to all day. Your help is greatly appreciated. They will start at 9 AM and go to 6 PM. In the South Narthex there will be a sign up sheet for you to let us know you are planning to help. If you cannot help and want to donate a monetary gift that can be done also.
