Postlude


 

2023-2024 Stewardship Campaign: John Wesley the founder of the Methodist movement, gave a remarkable sermon called “The Use of Money.” In it, he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can. Our 2023-2024 emphasis will be center around John Wesley’s use of Money looking at the book: Earn. Save. Give.: Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, developed by popular author and pastor James A. Harnish. Today you will be given stewardship campaign cards. Please begin praying on how much you are willing to commit to 2023-2024 fiscal year. On April 2nd we will offer a Breakfast. and on May 7th we will have our Commitment Sunday.

We have received approximately $250/quarter from Safeway.

Backpack Ministry: Our backpack ministry responds to Christ’s concern for prisoners (Matthew 25: 36, 39, 43). Our Church is the only organization in that provides backpacks to indigent men and women being released from the Douglas County Correctional Facility.


Prison ministry goes back to the beginning of Methodism. Eight years before John Wesley’s heart-warming experience of God’s grace on Aldersgate Street, he had already begun practicing acts of mercy as an essential part of faith. One of his acts of mercy was to visit prison five days a week.


When Kenny Teague, Minister at the Douglas County Sheriff Detention Center learned we were going to do the Backpack Ministry again, he said this is awesome and thank you and your members. We want to provide 48 backpacks (36 for men and 12 for women). We purchase the backpacks and then with you help fill them with a wide variety of personal items, such as toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, towel/washcloth, razor, socks, wallet, and other personal items. There is also devotional material in each backpack to help these men and women get their life on track with spiritual help.

Please stop by the table near the office and choose a card listing an item or items to be purchased or give a cash donation for the purchase of the backpacks and/or the needed supplies and toiletries. The supplies for the backpacks need to be returned to the Church by Sunday, April 16th.

The discussion will be on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Jesus: a History. In Person Sessions on Mondays (02 20 2023 to 04 03, 2023; 6:30 PM to 8:30) in Fellowship Hall.
