Welcome to Shalimar UMC We are so glad you’ve chosen to worship with us this week! Hearing assistance devices are available for the Sanctuary. Please see an usher to obtain these aids. Enjoy fellowship, coffee, and snacks in the Family Life Center Gym between worship services.

O ur Visio n Christ-centered, multigenerational, family and community relevant ministries through worship, discipleship, and mission.

O ur Missi on REA C H, T EA C H, and SEN D We REACH out to our congregation, community, and the world to TEACH the word of God as provided in the Holy Scripture, and SEND our members and missionaries to be witnesses to God’s grace and His promise of eternal life to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Wors hi p Services Traditions At 8:00 and 11:00am Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary we celebrate through the rich traditions of our faith such as hymns led by organ and piano, seasonal vestments, and traditional Methodist liturgy. Our Chancel Choir leads the 11:00am service. Conn ect At 9:30am Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary we engage in a four-fold service of gathering praise, service of the Word, Holy Communion with candle stations for prayer, and sending forth. The music is a blend of contemporary praise songs and upbeat hymns. Fre edom At 11:07am Sunday mornings in the Family Life Center Gym we worship through modern music, multimedia, and a teaching style message in a non-traditional atmosphere. We come to God as we are to experience the freedom of not having to stay that way.

Philip’s Focus Can I get a Second? Imagine, if you would, a meeting of people with calendars to reconsider expanding the observance of Thanksgiving Day. The idea would be to observe Thanksgiving 364 days a year and designate one day for griping and complaining. Wouldn’t that be great? We could celebrate Thanksgiving all year long! This would offer the time needed to list and give thanks for all our blessings! On the day designated for griping and complaining, we could just stay home and get our sour attitudes out of the way. If someone started to lose sight of blessings, we could just kindly remind them there is a day for that. We could even cook food we don’t like and drink expired milk to really do the day up right! As a side note, our service for that day would be filled with slow, sad hymns and we would lament all that is wrong with everything. We would hear this message “aint it awful?” On the other hand, we could spend the other 364 days focusing on the Psalms! “Taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalms 34:8a) or “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise” (Psalms 100:4). Also, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; his love endures forever” (Psalm 106:1). We would say in worship often “God is good all the time and all the time God is good.” We would spend those 364 days listing our blessings and praising God! We could give thanks for all He has done for us. The evil one would not have a chance! It has been said Satan cannot live in the heart of a grateful person. We would see unity, enthusiasm, and accomplishing the impossible on the rise, as we glory in God 364 days a year! Well, the chances of changing the calendar for the new 364/1 rotation are not very realistic, but there is good news. We can make this change in our own heart! We can choose to be grateful every day! Can I get a second? Shalom, Philip

Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow As we move at an ever quickening pace toward January 2020, which will mark Blessings For Children’s one year anniversary, please allow us to lift up our ministry’s mission statement: meet the needs of children in our community while encouraging and developing Christ-centered and church-involved relationships with their families. Over a year ago, as we collected clothing, personal care items, and school supplies to share with children in need, formulated processes and procedures for sharing, and recruited and trained volunteers, we weren’t sure what it would look or feel like to actually carry out the mission. The initial brochure introducing our ministry to our church family stated “we believe that the love of God will go out with each encounter we have with these families” and that statement has absolutely proved to be true. Let me share from all of us that most blessedly the love and hope of God has come into the #10 2nd Street home with each family that has entered our doors. Families have come to us with their needs, sharing their hopes and prayers, joys and sorrows, and their celebrations. We have seen the hardest things that life can bring; the death of a child, a parent going to jail, no place to live, and financial distress. We’ve also been there for the joy such as good grades in school, a new job, a place to live, and the birth of new children. In short, we have been in Christ-centered relationships with them. They come to us needing things for their children, but so often, they’ve returned excited to bring things that can be shared with others (outgrown clothing, toys, baby items). God’s blessings are flowing in and out of the #10 house and we give Him the praise and glory for the opportunity to be a part of His ministry. So many of you have already joined us over this past year with the support of your prayers, donations, financial gifts, and offers to volunteer. If you would like to support Blessings for Children in the coming months, please consider any of the following:

 Pray for this ministry and all who participate  Volunteer once a month (no computers, just helping people!)  3rd Sunday of each month, donate any of the items we distribute. Diapers, wipes, socks, underwear, toothpaste, toilet paper are always needed and a complete list of items we distribute can be found on our webpage (below). Bins are located in the sanctuary narthex or the Family Life Center lobby. Donations can also be brought to the #10 2nd St. house on Wednesday afternoons between 11:30 - 3:30 pm  Consider a financial contribution designated for Blessings for Children. We are so grateful to our church family and our Blessings for Children families. You are a blessing to this ministry and all who are involved!
