A PUBLICATION OF THE

PROPHETSTOWN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

 
Hello church family, Welcome to fall. This has been quite the year, hasn’t it? But we have made it this far. A lot of the bible contains stories about perseverance. An example of that is the Israelites, we have been talking a lot about them in the last weeks. They were out in the wilderness roaming around but more often than not they found themselves in trouble, but God was always there to rescue them, make them feel secure and provide for their needs. That is the same thing God does for each of us. This year has been very hard and we are tired. But we have made it this far. Think of all the opportunities that have come our way and the things that have worked out for the better throughout this year. If you try, I imagine you could come up with a big list. Just remembering that God is with us every day brings comfort to us. I want you to remember that this year. I do have some information to share with you. We have just implemented our new sermon by phone system. The number is 309-228-6471. You can call that number any time and hear our scripture readings for the week and the sermon. I hope that you will check it out! I also want to explain to you that our church conference this year will be on Zoom. What that means is that you will be provided a link or a phone number and you will call in on October 14 at 7:00pm to listen to our church conference. I want to let you know now, so if you have questions, you have time to get them answered. I would be happy to help you if you contact me. The last thing if you need or want a copy of the sermon, please call me or Chris in the office and we will make sure you get one.
Thanks and blessings Pastor Joey

Mission Chatter
As you all know by now, Muffin To Go has been canceled! With everything going on it is not safe! We certainly appreciate your support on this project and hope sometime soon we will be up and running again!
In our Mission Chatter, January 2018 we shared a piece by R.J. Palacio, writer of the children’s book Wonder with you. We feel this needs to be shared again with everything going on today, We think you will agree…………
“If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever
you can,
you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary…
the world really would be a better place. And if you do this…. someone else somewhere, someday may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God”
