Bible Presentation — 2014
Every September, at the beginning of the Sunday School year, each child that enters the third grade receives their own NIrV Adventure Bible as a gift from the Ruth Robbins Bible Fund.
From the left is Jennie Eure, Lay Leader; Eloisa DeLeon Bradley; JC; Pastor Renee
Edwards; Jack Bradley; and Lindsay Chambers, Childrens Ministry Coordinator.
On September 7th Pastor Renee Edwards presented a Bible to JC (John Carl). During the coming year, at Sunday School, JC and the other children will learn the books of the Bible and how to use their Bible. They also participate in games and drills to aid in their learning of the Bible.
On Sunday, September 7th New Hope UMC celebrated Grandparents Day. The children of New Hope UMC handed out boxes of candy to the grandparents.
Lay Servant Ministries & Lay Speaking
Welcome to an exciting new year of Lay Servant Training Opportunities. The Basic course will be offered three times. If you have taken the Basic Lay Speaking course previously, you do NOT need to take the Basic course again, you may go straight to the Advanced courses. The Advanced courses will be of interest to many of you. Training consists of six courses: leading worship, leading prayer, discovering spiritual gifts, preaching, United Methodist heritage, and United Methodist polity. Other courses may be added by an annual conference in order to respond to a specific missional context. Each of these courses requires 10 hours of classroom work plus outside assignments.6 courses are required to become a Certified Lay Speaker.
Please contact Ginny Crocker if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-339-2209.Upcoming Training Opportunities:
October is Pastor Appreciation Month
October is Pastor Appreciation Month. It is a special time that congregations set aside each year to honor their pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. It is also important to remember that appreciation and affirmation of our spiritual leaders is appropriate throughout the entire year.
Clergy Appreciation Day is the second Sunday in October. This year it is October 12, 2014. The nature of the service provided by pastors and their families is unique. God has entrusted to them one of the most precious of assignments – the spiritual well–being of His flock.
Figure out what you can do personally to recognize and honor our Pastor: A favorite homemade dessert; Gift certificate to a favorite restaurant; A gift basket with a "theme" (maybe gardening or bookworm themes); Theater, movie or sports tickets; A home cooked dinner delivered with candles and a nice CD for background music; A gift certificate for a professional massage or even a manicure would be nice; A simple card; An invitation to lunch; a promise to pray for them.
Gifts don't have to be extravagant or expensive to be special. Handmade items have their own special charm. Just make sure that your gift is from the heart and they will love it no matter what it is.
We can also share the concept of Clergy Appreciation Month with others in our congregation and possibly plan a special service of affirmation, a potluck event or planting a tree in her honor. The sky is the limit!
