September 2011 Edition

Heralding the News of the First United Methodist Church of Oviedo

"O Israel, I will not forget you. I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you." Sing for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done this; shout aloud, O earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the LORD has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel. (Isa. 44:21b-23)

Here we have an amazing depiction of God's redeeming grace. Israel has turned away from their God and has faced horrible consequences as a result. They didn't know what to do but their pain was evident to God, so He reaches out to them and provides for them a way to return. What I see here is the very heart of God. They were not looking for God, but He was looking for them. They could not find a path of reconciliation nor did they want to because their sin had blinded their eyes to His mercy. God sees the trap that they are in. They cannot return because they have been blinded by their disobedience. So, God forgives them, even before they repent, even before they look for Him. What He does is provide the path of renewal and then brings them to it in order to show them what to do. What God is offering them is a new start, if they will accept it. This idea of a new start resonates with me. I have made mistakes. I have offended those I care about. I have been impatient. I have disregarded God's wisdom. And, at times I have found myself in a position, which appears to have no hope of resolution. I have needed a God who is willing to forgive, even before I cry out to Him. One of the joys of reading Scripture every day is that God is able to reaffirm His love towards me. I find this to be that place where God reminds me over and over again of how far He has gone to call me back into relationship with Him. But, it also helps me to realize how important it is for me to daily reach out to Him. How can I say no to one who has so graciously given Himself for me? We are privileged to serve such a God.

I want to thank you for allowing me to be your pastor.

MILITARY SUPPORT UPDATE

We Are On Facebook: Thanks to Colleen Hutton and Belinda Elmer, we are now on Facebook. To access our page, request Military Support Group of the First United Methodist Church of Oviedo. Currently we have pictures of the soldiers playing baseball with the equipment we mailed them. If you have any pictures that you think would suit our facebook page, please let me know or contact Colleen. Mums for Sale: During the next few weeks we will be taking orders for mums again. Check with one of the members of the Military Support Group to place your order. The most popular color is yellow, but we will have red, orange, white and pink for sale, as well. Remember, once they have bloomed out, you can cut the dead heads off for another bloom. The cost is $25.00 and we appreciate your support. Delivery will be on Friday, October 7th from noon until 5:00 p.m. at the Portico next to the gym. Next Meeting: We will have the next meeting at my house at 529 Enderby Road in Chuluota, on Sunday, September 18th following the 11:00 service. This will be a pot luck luncheon and all are welcome to attend. For seating purposes, it would be helpful if you would RSVP to Liz at [email protected] or call 407-721-2055. We always welcome new members. Our numbers seem to be growing each month and we are thrilled that Franklin Wascura and his mom have joined us. Franklin has just returned from his tour in Afghanistan and has agreed to share pictures and stories of his time there at the September meeting. We are all anxious to hear his stories. Linens and Cookies for the Single Soldier Redeployment Project at Fort Drum We are currently collecting single sheets and pillow cases for the barracks at Ft. Drum for the single soldiers returning from Afghanistan with Lars Wendt's group. Solid colors or stripes are always practical as there are 115 soldiers of which 15 are women. All donations must be brought to the church office by Friday, September 23rd in order for our donations to arrive in time for the rooms to be prepared. Just think about how this small act can brighten the spirits of a soldier returning from a very long flight home after a year in the dessert to open the door to his room to find clean sheets on his bed, cookies in his cupboard, and notes of thanks on his bedside table! (Your homemade cookies may be brought to the office on the 23rd, or dropped off earlier to be frozen if need be). Our support with the Ft. Sill redeployment project was greatly appreciated. Prayer List Update: We are in the process of updating our military prayer list. If you have a family member or know of someone who is currently serving in any branch of our military (not necessarily serving in the war theater), please call the church office or email Liz at [email protected] so that we can update our information.

Prayer Warriors for Whale of a Sale/Harvest Jamboree

Don't have time to volunteer for a hands-on-job? There is still something you can do to help. We need your prayers for 3 major areas: 1. The ministry that results from the good stewardship of the funds generated by theses events. For wisdom and discernment in decisions about the distribution of funds. For compassion and empathy and graciousness toward the individuals and groups who apply to receive a portion of the funds. 2. The ministry to the people of our community. Our ability to provide low-cost items to people on tight budgets. Our awareness and dedication to provide encouragement and radical hospitality to everyone with whom we interact. 3. The ministry to the volunteers involved in these events. That we would fellowship and take time to get to know each other.

News From the Book Nook

(aka FUMCO Library)

September means Back-to-School! Our library has a wonderful selection of books that can help your children practice their reading skills. The Book Nook will be open on Wednesday nights again for browsing, from 5:30-8:00 PM. Questions for the Librarian? Come between 5:30 & 6:30 each Wednesday. New Books! Because our congregation has been so generous to the library, there are many new books to check out. Come and Browse! the Book Nook is open every Sunday between all services and Wednesday nights.

Stephen Ministry is named for St. Stephen, the first lay person commissioned by the Apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need. Stephen Ministers undergo 50 hours of training and serve for at least two years. Among other things, they develop skills in reflective listening, learn guidelines on confidentiality, and prepare to minister to people in specific situations such as terminal illness, grief and divorce and other areas. They are also trained to recognize when to refer someone to a professional. Stephen Ministry is based on "incarnational theology," which means that "when you care for another person, Jesus is in that person and you are the incarnation of Jesus Christ," says Kenneth Haugk, founder of Stephen Ministries, ST Louis, MO. In other words, what would Jesus do? "If Jesus had a friend going through a divorce, he'd probably listen to them. If Jesus had a friend die, he'd cry, which is what he did when Lazarus died. This stuff is simple, but profound," says Haugk. "Sometimes in the church and certainly in society, we're not very good listeners. We tend to talk too much. We have to learn to bite our tongue and listen more. It takes discipline." With 2,180 churches enrolled, the United Methodist Church has more churches involved in Stephen Ministry than any other denomination--a distinction Haugk attributes to United Methodist-based discipleship experiences such as DISCIPLE Bible study and Walk to Emmaus. "I think a lot of United Methodists who become Stephen Ministers have participated in these experiences and are asking, 'Now what do I do with all this?' Perhaps Stephen Ministry is a logical step," he says. If you or someone you know, would like more information on Stephen Ministry, please contact one of our Stephen Leaders, Diane Bless, Karen Quick, or Jim Wottring. "Christ caring for people, through people."
