1. Sunday Morning Worship - This week we are continuing our preaching series called "Jargon Unchained." We're going to be taking some of the theological terms and church jargon and explain it all in a much easier to understand way. This week's term is "Sanctification" and Pastor Debbie will use Ephesians 4:17-24 to frame our time together.
Invite a friend and a neighbor and we hope to see you at 8am, 9:30am, or 11am! All are welcome, all are invited.
2. Best Wishes - Join us this Sunday as we honor our Minister of Youth, Sharon Quackenbush, at the 9Thirty service. This will be her last Sunday with us and we want to wish her well as she heads off to graduate school.
Sharon has served our youth so faithfully over the last two years, and while she will be greatly missed, we are so excited for her and lives she will continue to shape in her new endeavors.
We love you, Sharon!

4. Rise Against Hunger - You are invited to join us in our Family Life Center on Sunday, October 21st as we gather to pack 20,000 meals for children across the world. We will need about 10 people to meet us at 11:30am to set up the tables and we will need about 10 more people to stick around after the event to tear down. The event itself will require about 100 people to prepare the meals and pack them in boxes. There is a job for all ages and abilities. You will be amazed at how quickly we will pack those 20,000 meals as we do it in just a few hours. These meals feed children that otherwise may not eat. It is a wonderful outreach and we sure would love to have you be a part of it. There is no signup, we just ask you to show up. Mark your calendars and we hope to see you there!
The General Conference of the United Methodist Church will meet next February to consider resolutions on church policy regarding this topic. If you would like to contact our representatives to General Conference, you can find their information by clicking here.
6. Super Charge Conference - Our annual Charge Conference is coming up soon. We will gather with all of the other United Methodist churches in our district for the first ever Super Charge Conference. This will be a time of worship and reflection on missions and ministries this past year. We will also look to the future and the ways we can impact our communities. We will go over reports and have a few votes that will need to be taken. It is open for all people to attend and all church members can vote. It will be held on October 20th, at New Covenant UMC, 3470 Woodridge Dr., in The Villages, beginning from 9am - 12pm. We hope to see you there as we represent Community UMC!
Have a great weekend and we will see you Sunday!
