1 2016 AUTUMN MINISTRY GUIDE We welcome the season of autumn and all the new opportunities and possibilities it brings - from weather and wardrobe changes to the start of a new school year or job to a more settled daily schedule. In the church we continue living the days of Ordinary Time as we prepare our hearts through worship, study, mission, and prayer for the coming of the Christ Child into our lives. I like to think of autumn as a time of returning home from the harried travels and busy schedules of summer home to the life of a welcoming congregation committed to nurturing disciples of Jesus Christ, serving the least of these, our brothers and sisters, caring for our fellow believers, building up the Church, the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, and using our gifts and talents to glorify and enjoy God. So, this Sunday, as we launch a new Sunday School year and sermon series, say Yes! to God s invitation to return home!
2 To grow as a family of disciples We grow as a family, a community of believers, when we come together to worship the God who creates, redeems, and sustains us. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are challenged to fling wide our doors and share the good news of God s love for the world with neighbors hungry for such love. So, come, let s be the church together and invite others searching for a family shaped by Love. Worship WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?

4 ...inspired by God s Word, As Christians shaped by a particular faith tradition, the Reformed Tradition, we value the life of the mind and the heart.

7 ADMINISTRATION Although the management of the institution of the church may strike some as mundane, routine, and less than exciting (!!) the smooth-working of our session, committees, subcommittees, and task forces enhances pastoral care as it bears witness to scripture and our Reformed Tradition of doing everything decently and in order to glorify God. Our session is composed of eight men and women, ruling elders elected by the congregation, who serve two year terms. Ruling elders are responsible for the life and witness of the Church, and as such, they deal with policy, structure, and matters outlined in the Book of Order and Book of Confessions. Session meets in the fellowship hall on the third Wednesday of every other month at 6:30 p.m., January, March, May, July, September, and November, at other times as deemed necessary, and via . In the Presbyterian Church, the hands-on work of the local church takes place at the committee, subcommittee, and task force level. This work is critical, and you are invited to be a part of laboring to bring in the Kingdom by sharing your gifts and talents with your fellow believers committed to our work in our community and world. The Church at Work is a time for all committees, subcommittees, and task forces to gather in the fellowship hall to collaborate in the fulfilling of God s will in our small piece of the vineyard. We meet on the third Wednesday of every other month at 6:30 p.m., February, April, June, August, October, and December.
