"MOSES" ADULT BIBLE STUDY

Book cover for Moses The Reluctant ProphetStarting the week of October 1st, we will begin a six-week study based on Reverend Adam Hamilton's book and DVD "Moses, the Reluctant Prophet." Each week, in a small-group setting, we will explore the sites of Moses' life from the Nile River to the Red Sea, from Mt. Sinai to the wilderness. Using historical information, archaeological data, and biblical text, Rev. Hamilton guides us in the footsteps of the reluctant prophet who blazed a trail of truth. Participants will receive a book. Each week, we will watch a video and discuss questions from the book and video. We will consider what Moses' and the Israelites' journey reveals about God, ourselves and about God's will for our lives. The study sessions are approximately 90 minutes long and are held in the youth lounge starting either on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. or Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Please register for either session with the church office by Tuesday, September 19 so you can receive your book in advance. Please see Kevin Conley (518-253-4907) or Pastor Sundar for more information.

Worship at FUMC for October

October 8 is the date we celebrate Children's Sabbath. ‘The purpose of the Children’s Sabbath observance is social advocacy for the needs of children throughout this nation. This year’s theme is “Moving Forward with Hope: Love and Justice for Every Child.” Children’s Sabbath–a weekend-long observance, primarily in the community–should not be confused with Children’s Sunday, a Sunday worship observance that focuses primarily on drawing attention to the children in our own congregations.’ (from Discipleship Ministries)
October 15 - Laity Sunday 2017: Therefore, Go! with HOPE Through Hospitality. This is a focus for worship in many United Methodist churches this Sunday. Be in our church this day to see where the women of our church family take us as they lead us in worship.
October 22 - This Sunday our Stewardship Campaign begins. It’s a Sunday to remind ourselves that stewardship involves more than just money. There is much more that we can give to our church family, to our community and beyond.
October 29 - “Today is Reformation Sunday, the day that Protestant denominations traditionally set aside to remember our common heritage. It commemorates the date in October 1517, when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door at Wittenburg cathedral protesting the excesses of the Catholic church of his day. One of the most important (and often overlooked) results of the Protestant Reformation was the reemergence of congregational hymn singing. For over 1000 years, the common people were prohibited from singing in church. Only the clergy and professional singers could do this. The contributions of Martin Luther and his followers in producing new hymn tunes and texts cannot be overstated.” (from Discipleship Ministries).

Pastor Sundar will be preaching at 9:30 a.m. each of the Sundays in October.

Come, join us for worship. Invite a friend. Stay for coffee hour following the 9:30 service and be part of our time of fellowship.


Outdoor Chapel

Early Worship Services will be held held in the Chapel in the Wood each Sunday at 8:30 each week.

The worship services will continue looking at “Pop Verses” through the first three Sundays in October. Then our worship theme will shift to “The Ships of Faith (Stewardship)”. As long as the weather holds, we will meet in the Chapel in the Woods. These services are sometimes led by members of the laity. If you are interested in planning and leading one service, please speak to Pastor Sundar for more information.
