2 PASTORS NOTE A note from Kent Thom S. Rainer writes a blog about church things at Last month we reprinted his article mentioning things we should not say to guests who come to worship. This month we look at his suggestions for 7 things we should say. Seven Things Church Members Should Say to Guests in a Worship Service 1. Thank you for being here. It s just that basic. I have heard from numerous church guests who returned because they were simply told thank you. 2. Let me help you with that. If you see someone struggling with umbrellas, young children, diaper bags, purses, and other items, a gesture to hold something for them is a huge positive. Of course, this comment is appropriate for member to member as well. 3. Please take my seat. I actually heard that comment twice in a church where I was speaking in the Nashville area. The first comment came from a member to a young family of five who were trying to find a place to sit together. 4. Here is my address. Please let me know if I can help in any way. Of course, this comment must be used with discretion, but it can be a hugely positive message to a guest. 5. Can I show you where you need to go? Even in smaller churches, guests will not know where to find the nursery, restrooms, and small group meeting areas. You can usually tell when a guest does not know where he or she is to go. 6. Let me introduce you to. The return rate of guests is always higher if they meet other people. A church member may have the opportunity to introduce the guest to the pastor, other church staff, and other members of the church. 7. Would you join us for lunch? I saved this question for last for two reasons. First, the situation must obviously be appropriate before you offer the invitation. Second, I have seen this approach have the highest guest return rate of any one factor. What if your church members sought to invite different guests 6 to 12 times a year? The burden would not be great; but the impact would be huge. Ministry with those who Worship at Home Learn more about it on September 30th We have several volunteers who serve as Friends in Faith. A Friend in Faith is partnered with one of our members who is no longer able to attend worship. The Friend visits monthly and calls - or sends a card each month as well. To hear about this quiet and vital ministry, mark September 30th on your calendar. 2 On September 30th following the Wednesday night dinner 6:00 Hear from a visitor about the blessing of visiting 6:10-6:25 Parish Nurse Judy McCleery will do a mini-education session on signs of a stroke 6:30-7:30 Training focused on visiting older adults -- more about strokes, ways to assist and support older adults.

3 UMW Decatur First United Methodist Women invite all women to participate in its programs whether they attend this church or not. The UMW events for September include circle meetings and a fall brunch at our church. There is a district meeting in Rochester. UMW has one major fund raiser to supports its mission: the annual Trash and Treasure sale. Wednesday, September 10, is the first date to place contributed items on the stage.

Light refreshments will be served. This meeting also marks a new day in the life of the fellowship. For some years, First Presbyterian has sponsored a similar group called Lunch Bunch on the third Thursday of each month, which provided a full meal in addition to the program. But now the leaders of the Lunch Bunch have graciously agreed to merge with First United Methodist s First Friends for monthly meetings on the fourth Thursday. Since both churches have the name First, First Friends seems an appropriate appellation for the united group. In order to truly share in fellowship, we propose to meet in October at First Presbyterian, and then move back and forth on succeeding months. Meetings in November and December may have to renegotiate dates because of the holidays. Invite a friend to come with you to the new First Friends! 3 First FRIENDS THURSDAY September 24 10:30 AM Next fall, 2016, join others from our church family and Christians from around the world, following in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul.

It's time to start signing up.

4 Thank YOU FUMC: Thank you guys so much! Thank you for celebrating and welcoming us to the Youth Group. I love what you did for us and I hope the other kids had fun to and I will pray to God and thank him too. - Isabella Ledesma I had a great experience at camp this year! The camp I went to was all about doing crazy camp things. So, we played food twister where we splashed around in a variety of foods and ultimate kickball where the bases were gross foods. We also did some normal camp stuff like swimming, hiking and movie nights. I also made some really amazing friends that I will never forget. On the last morning, we all were in tears. We all really bonded and supported each other. I felt like I had known these people for years. It was a very inspiring experience, too. We talked a lot about getting outside of our comfort zone and being more like the person Jesus wants us to be rather than the person society wants us to be. It was very powerful. Camp is a great experience because you feel like you're in your own little world. No one judges you and you can really grow deeper in your faith. Thanks for all your support and help in making this experience possible! I absolutely cannot wait for next year! - Emily King-Nobles Dear Church Family, Thank you so much for giving me the chance to go to camp! I really enjoyed going and meeting new friends. I also enjoyed learning about the infinite amount of love and hope God gives every one of us each and every day. Once again, thank you very much, I had an amazing time at East Bay! I can t wait to go back next year!!! - Brooke Swinford Dear FUMC, Thanks for sending us to church camp. We had fun at Just Us Girls. I would go back again. I enjoyed it a lot. We swam a lot. Every day was nice and I loved camp! - Hope Musgrave Dear Church Family, Thanks for sending us to church camp to Just Us Girls. We had fun! We swam a lot. There was a lot of puddles and I hope to go back next year. - Faith Musgrave Memories of East Bay: I liked tetherball and I liked going swimming too. I like sleeping in the top bunk. That was the first time I have had slept on a top bunk. I didn t like walking in the mud though. And every night I prayed. I hope I can come back! Thank you for paying for East Bay Camp for me. I loved East Bay. - Nola Redden Dear FUMC: Thank you for paying for the opportunity for me to go to East Bay Camp. I had a lot of fun! I enjoyed when we swam in the lake and when we swam in the pool. At camp we sang a lot of songs. We also went to worship every morning and that was where we sang most of our songs. We also went to worship in the evening. The evening worship was where we did Bible study. On the 3rd night, we learned about the fruits of the spirit. Thank you. - Ella Redden Thank you for helping me go to church camp once again this Summer. I always have an awesome time! This year I went to the camp called Altitude and had a blast! I have decided I will go to the same camp next summer. My favorite part was zip-lining. I appreciate having the privilege to get to go to these camps each year. Thank you so much! - Austin Fyke Thank you to everyone for helping me go to camp. I had a lot of fun with my friend Will. We did a lot of things in the water and my favorite part was doing the kayak and swimming in the lake. I look forward to going again. Thank you! - Jamie Fyke 4

It s a fun morning for families to sing Christmas songs, make crafts, enjoy Christmas goodies, and an opportunity for children to shop for Christmas gifts and learn why we celebrate Christmas. Every gift is the same price, so children can choose with their hearts, all while making friends with our shopping and wrapping elves. We have a good start on the items needed for this year. There s plenty of wrapping paper, gifts for women, and gifts for babies. We are in need most of gifts for men and boys. The gifts are sold for $2 each, so we try to ensure that each choice is worth $2 or more. If you would like to donate new gifts for the shopping area (the less breakable, the better!), be sure to check out all the clearance and sales in the stores this time of year. Popular gifts from last year: scissors, flashlights, basic tools, playing cards, small building sets, and action figures. Donations of new gifts, tissue paper, gift bags, and large shopping bags (from department stores) are greatly appreciated, and can be dropped off by Jennifer s office. Merry Christmas! 5

6 Starts September 20th! Serving Our Community For over 5 years now, Deb McCarthy has been quietly leading our Smart Choice Ministry. Deb has done a great job. She has been a blessing to so many people in our community, making it possible for them to stretch their food dollars. Thank you, Deb, for your faithful service! We appreciate you so much! Deb has now retired from this ministry and the new coordinator is Tiffany Ballard. Deb & Tiffany have been working together for several months before Tiffany took over. We welcome Tiffany to this ministry. She and her family are members of First Free Will Baptist Church here in Decatur. Below is a note from Tiffany and an invitation to serve. Smart Choice program is a food ministry available at FUMC and is utilized by many people in the Decatur area. This program is not just for those needing assistance with feeding their families, but for anyone wishing to save money on food. Orders are taken several times a month in the church office and the food boxes may also be o r d e r e d o n l i n e ( h t t p s : / / Menus may be picked up in the office or Wesley Hall. This ministry is vital to the community and the people who order have become reliant on the food boxes to feed them throughout the month. Our assisted-living seniors find this an invaluable service that offers them a lower cost option for quality food on their limited budgets. When our distribution date was changed last month, one senior in particular expressed her concern about running out of food before the next distribution. If you know of someone in need of a box, would like a menu, or have any questions, please contact T i f f a n y B a l l a r d o r We are also looking for volunteers to assist (picking up food one Saturday/month; taking orders once a month in the church office). This ministry is small, but it is so vital to those who rely upon it. - Tiffany Ballard Just Flicks Secrets & Lies (1996) Sunday, September 13 at 6 p.m. First Presbyterian Church Just Flicks is a film series that brings you films that matter once a month from September through May. Everyone and anyone is encouraged to come. This year s list includes classics and littleknown gems, documentaries and dramas. They cover a wide range of topics that touch on issues of justice, fairness and peacemaking. Just Flicks is co-sponsored by the Peace & Justice Task Forces of Central Christian and First Presbyterian churches. 6

7 Confirmation On June 13, 2015 Africa University awarded degrees to 694 students from 17 countries. This is the largest graduating class in the institution's 23 year history. Our congregation has a unique connection to Africa University in that in 1988 Dick Reeves, husband of Joyce, was appointed to Africa University Board of Directors as chairman of the Building and Grounds Committee which drew up the master plan for the campus. He had previously volunteered as an engineering consultant with UMCOR and had made 30 trips to Africa in 10 years at his own expense assisting in the building of wells. Following Dick's death a scholarship fund in honor of Dick and Joyce was established at Africa University as well as an endowment fund to sustain the campus maintenance. Let us celebrate the University's accomplishments with our continued support! Our United Methodist Conference (Illinois Great Rivers Conference) has pledge $1,000,000 (that s 1 million dollars) for a couple endowed scholarships at Africa University. Every church has been asked to pledge and raise funds towards this important gift. Our church has pledged $5,000 and hopes to raise even more! The Mission Committee will soon be sharing ideas for raising these funds. Our 6 th, 7th, and 8 th graders, and older youth are beginning Confirmation in September. The class will meet on Sundays mornings, beginning September 13. Students will be expected to attend worship and classes each week (8:30 12:00). In addition, there will be a retreat, service projects, and ropes course experience. Confirmation Sunday will be held in the spring. The students will be selecting a Friend in Faith (mentor) to work with them throughout this year. Confirmation is a time for youth to dig deeper in their faith, learn about the traditions of the church, and commit their lives to following Christ. For more information, contact Pastor Kathy at: Jim & Cathy Smithson share stories from their trip to Africa! September 11 at 7:00 p.m. The Smithsons recently returned from a wonderful trip to Africa. As you can imagine, Jim took some breathtaking pictures. On Friday, September 11, Jim and Cathy will talk about their trip at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. You can bring a dessert to share, or just come and enjoy the evening. 7

8 Living Fully, Dying Well. Beginning Wednesday, Sept 10:00 am Bob Baker will be leading a video-based small group study authored by Bishop Rueben Job called Living Fully, Dying Well.
