1 FIRST CONGREGATIONAL, UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST BENZONIA, MI October 2017 Hi my fellow travelers, As I was contemplating what to share with you the word journey keeps bubbling up in my head. One of the great metaphors of the Bible is the journey. The Bible is filled with journey upon journey. From Genesis to Revelation, Scripture is full of people on the move. In the beginning of the Old Testament, Abraham journeys from Ur of the Chaldees to the Promised Land. Many generations later, Abraham s descendants journey from slavery and oppression in Egypt into the land of Israel. Many generations after that, they journey back to their Promised Land after the tragic downfall of their civilization and their forced exile in Babylon. In the New Testament, Jesus himself journeys through Palestine, preaching the Good News of the Kin-dom of God. As he journeys, he shows people what that Kin-dom looks like by his deeds of love and power. After the Resurrection, Paul and the apostles journey all over the Roman Empire, and their message reaches to the ends of the earth and here we are, millennia later, with our journeys touching theirs. Journeys: I have gone back to Maine, was ordained, had a hard trip returning to Michigan. I will be installed Sept. 24 here at The First Congregational of Benzonia. There was the funeral for June Deering, Nancy Czap will be soon. Sunday school has started with confirmation class soon to follow. New beginnings are happening in football as well, just ask Liam or Sam. Soon we will be in conversation about Stewardship. Sonny and I attended an informational organizational meeting on Safe Harbor, dealing with homelessness during the winter months. Don t forget how we walk with BACN and Love INC. There are many journeys going on here at First Congregational. There are those listed above and so many more that I am just hearing about. We are on the move. Where do you see the journey going? On the path with you, Patty

3 Dear Congregation: FAJITA DINNER FUNDRAISER On October 6th this church will be hosting the Challenged Abilities Fajita Dinner. This will be our 9th fajita dinner fundraiser we have done in this church. In 2016 we reorganized our dinner through the Benzie Sunrise Rotary club to better serve our community. I believe this was the best way to go so that all monies stay here in Benzie County to better distribute the money in the form of grants to people that need it the most. In addition, last year we added take-outs, which reduced waiting times. I want to thank all the sponsors and especially our church members who have made this dinner a complete success could not have done it without you. This is truly a community church that serves the community. I invite you to come and join us. Dinner Tickets: $9.00 If you would like to sponsor a table: 1/2 tables are $25.00; full tables are $ Checks can be made out to the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Club and on the memo line write Fajita Dinner. Thank you and God bless you, Sonny Rodriguez TRUSTEE REPORT At the September meeting, the trustees discussed the music program and what we can do to enhance it. The stewardship campaign will begin in October. Rev. Patty Higgins had a lot of questions that were addressed as she becomes familiar with our committees and all other activities that take place in our church. She had some building use questions and it was noted that our building use form needs updating. There was discussion about remodeling the kitchen. The first step is to form a committee. Volunteers are Carol Dye, Earl Schopp, and Chris Gehring. We are looking into having the sermons on the website. CHURCH WORLD SERVICE & NEIGHBORS IN NEED On October 1, the Church World Service Committee is sponsoring Neighbors in Need (NIN), in conjunction with World Communion Day. If you are able, please give; there will be info in the bulletin explaining the details, but in a brief note, NIN is a special mission to help support justice and compassion throughout the US. It helps with two supporting organizations: CAIM and JWM; you can find more about these ate Thanks again from CWSC! CIRCLE I Circle 1 will meet Wednesday, October 18th at 1:00 at the church. Our winter projects will be on the agenda.

4 2017 STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN STARTS OCTOBER 15 Our new stewardship year starts, with our new full-time pastor, Patty Higgins. We are so happy to have her with us, and under her leadership we will move forward with great enthusiasm and a bright future before us. Welcome Patty. Journey to Generosity, the Way of Jesus is the theme for this year. God gives us such great gifts. How do we respond? According to Christian theology, we become stewards. A steward is a person who manages resources. As stewards of God, we manage or try to manage our resources so that they serve God s purposes to make the church and the world more like the communities God wants them to be. (from the UCC Journey to Generosity insert material provided for this year s campaign.)
