Dear Schweitzer Friends,
Looking for ways to connect at Schweitzer? Depending on where you are in your growth as a disciple of Jesus, I recommend you choose one of the following three classes beginning in a few weeks:
A small group model for anyone who desires a truer sense of Christian community and spiritual growth. To learn more, sign up for the 4-week launch class starting Sunday, Sept. 10, Noon–2:00 p.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch and childcare are provided.
A class experience that combines teaching from our pastors and guided discussion with friends. Join us for seven weeks of engagement with God through Scripture. Sundays, 5:00–6:30 p.m., or Wednesdays, 6:30–8:00 p.m., beginning Sept. 17/20. (Tuesday morning also available.) Books are available, $10 suggested, note “book” on offering. Come to the first class having read the introduction and Chapter 1 of the book. Contact Jeff Fugitt, email@example.com.
Getting Started in the Bible starts at the beginning and gives a thorough introduction to the Bible. Seven Wednesdays beginning Sept. 20, 6:30–8:00 p.m., room 202. Contact Jeff Fugitt, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Response to Hurricane Harvey
Amy Fuselier, Director of Relief Supplies at UMCOR, has invited United Methodists to prepare hygiene kits and cleaning buckets. Missouri currently has approximately 500 cleaning buckets that will be diverted to needed areas of the country when UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) calls. Help replenish our stock to enable swift response for this and future disasters. Visit UMCOR to learn how to make a cleaning kit ($65 value) or a hygiene kit ($12 value). You may drop off completed kits or cleaning buckets at Schweitzer, Monday-Friday, 9:00 to 2:00, during the next 30-60 days.
Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend. If you are in town, come and worship with us as we continue the series GROWING AS A COMMUNITY. This week’s message focuses on worshiping as a community. “Yet, a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” (John 4:23)
