Human Sexuality Policies and the Methodist Church

On February 17th, I offered a follow-up gathering to further discuss Human Sexuality and The United Methodist Church. We reviewed what I shared in October regarding A Way Forward. Slides from that first gathering are still available here. The primary focus for this second gathering was to take a look at what Holy Scriptures say about homosexual practice and to talk a bit about our way forward based on what comes from the Special Session of General Conference. Annotated slides from this gathering are available here.

As your spiritual leader and the elder responsible for the ordering of God's church in Moultonborough, I implore you to study the slides from this gathering, to be in prayer with the heart and mind of Christ, and to stay in conversation and unity as the body of Christ. I see the potential for great growth in the body, as we show the world how we can be led by the Spirit and love as Jesus loved.

I offered another follow-up gathering after a post-General Conference session of local UMC clergy on March 16th in Lebanon, NH.

Shopping Cards For Missions

During the month of July, $331.62 has been raised for Missions.   A big thank you to everyone who has been shopping locally and using shopping cards for groceries.  We were able to order both local grocery store cards this month, which shows in the higher monthly donation to Dr. and Mrs. Zimmerman in Nepal.

Try to continue your local shopping by purchasing an in stock $25 Tanger Outlet card (8%) that can be used at any store in the complex in Tilton.  You can also take advantage of a coupon for 25% off a single item with each card purchased.   Schedule your shopping trip for new fall items on or before the expiration date of 8/25/19.  Please check stores participating in this special on the back of the coupon.

For a limited time, special deal coupons are available with the purchase of the following in stock restaurant cards:   Ninety-Nine Restaurant (13%) expires 8/10/19 and $25 Uno Pizzeria & Grille (12.5%) 9/15.   One coupon per card purchased - offered on a first come first-choice of coupon basis.  In addition, $25 Applebee’s (8%); $50 The Common Man (10%); Olive Garden/Longhorn Steakhouse (8%) and $25 Subway (3%) cards are currently in stock.   Plan lunch or dinner during your shopping trip in Tilton.

All proceeds from shopping cards sales support  Dr. and Mrs. Zimmerman in their ministries in Nepal.  In 2019, we will again strive to earn $3,000 for spreading the love and grace of Jesus Christ to the people of Nepal.  We hope to increase the amount of money that MUMC Outreach receives through this program.

  Please make an effort to actively support the Shopping Card Program in 2019 with your purchase of cards for your regular shopping needs (grocery, home improvement, on-line, department store, and restaurants, to name a few).    Your support of this ministry through prayers throughout the year is always appreciated.  Donations to the Zimmerman Ministries are also accepted. Please talk to Sue Scudder for donation information.

Making disciples

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Over the past few weeks we have learned about discipleship and how each of us is called to “Offer Them Christ”. As we grow as disciples, we offer our time, our talents, our prayers, our witness, and our gifts to God. When the church receives pledges of future financial gifts, it allows us to determine the extent to which we can continue, and hopefully expand, the ministries and missions of the church. Please prayerfully consider making a commitment to the blessing of growing as a disciple of Christ, and to the financial support of God’s mission for the church.

Mother's Day & Father's Day Poems

On Mother's Day Pastor Bob read the "God Our Mother Poem" by Allison Woodard. Because several people have asked for it, we now have it available for reading or downloading here.

On Father's Day he read "The Greatest Father" by Margaret Brennan. That is available here for reading of downloading.
