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.

Pastor Bob


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.


Exercise Your Body and Spirit

Looking for a way to get some exercise, get to know some members, and be in the Word?  Join us at the Moultonborough Academy track every Thursday at 9:00 AM.

We start with a short Bible passage that we discuss as we walk...and talk.  Parking at the second dirt parking area on Blake Road past the Academy entrance.


Shopping Cards For Missions

As of this writing, $15.60 has been raised for the month of May for Missions.  We are behind last year’s profits by over $200.00.  Please remember the Shopping Card Program is designed to work by purchasing cards for your routine shopping needs throughout the year. Locally, Hannaford cards can be used for groceries and pharmacy shopping.  Heath’s Inc. cards can be used at Jo Jo’s Country Store, Ace Hardware (EM Heath), and the main grocery store.  Restaurant cards are available for the Tilton/ Concord area along with The Common Man, Dunkin’ and Subway locally.  If there are any cards that you would use frequently that we normally do not stock, please let the workers at the Shopping Card table know so they can be purchased for you.

Father’s Day is June 16th.  Would Dad like a steak dinner from Long Horn/ Olive Garden (8%), Ninety-Nine (13%), The Common Man (10%), or Applebee’s (8%)?  We also have Amazon (3%), Barnes & Noble (8%), Kohl’s (4%), LL Bean (16%), Lowe’s (4%), Home Depot (4%), Subway (3%), and Dunkin’ Donuts (3%) in stock for items of his choosing.  Bass Pro Shops, Dick Sporting Goods, and Cabela’s can be ordered for the sportsmen.   Deadline for special orders is June 9th.
 
Or allow Dad to be King of the Grill for the Summer by stocking up on steaks, chops, burgers, ribs, chicken his specialties.  Hannaford’s (5%), Walmart (1.5%) and Heath’s (10%) grocery cards are available. Reminder:  the last truckload meat sale for the Summer is Wednesday June 12th at Heath’s.   Stock your freezer and support our missionaries in Nepal.
 
 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.





Annual Church Fair

It’s time to plan for the Church Fair June 29 from 8AM to 2PM. Volunteers are needed to take charge of baked goods, used books, the indoor luncheon and any ideas for new options of items to sell. We also need people to put up posters around town and signs in the vicinity of the church. If you would like to volunteer for any of these areas, please see Betsy Merkle or contact her at merklebetsy@gmail.com

In addition to the individuals who are in charge of the church-sponsored tables we need all of you to collect used books and items for the indoor and outdoor flea market.

We Love Gift Baskets!
One of the most successful auction items at our Annual Church Fair has always been gift baskets.  Over the years, members and friends of our church have put their creativity to work assembling one-of-a-kind themed gift baskets to be auctioned at the Fair’s Silent Auction.  The baskets have consistently been a huge success and have made a major contribution to the success of our Fair.

Won’t you consider assembling a basket of your choosing?  It’s fun!  Possible themes might include gardening, pet lovers, barbecue, kitchen gadgets, cosmetics, kid’s toys, beach items, sports teams, specialty foods, coffee lovers, etc.  The possibilities are endless! 

Gift baskets on the theme of your choice such as gardening, pets, baking, bar-b-que, movie night, golf, tennis, chocolate-lovers, children’s fun, the possibilities are endless. We would greatly appreciate any contributions.  Please leave gift baskets at the church office prior to June 27th.  Thank you and God bless you!

Gardeners, as you thin your perennials please consider donating the extra plants to the plants table.Please consider supporting the church in this unique manner.
