This week we begin a 3-week worship series, titled “Methodists: Made…Making…Moving…” to help us remember how Methodism came into being, the hallmarks of Methodism through its founders the Wesleys, especially John Wesley, and the nature of our missional faith life as Methodists.  John Wesley was methodical in his rituals, including in his prayer life.

To help enhance and expand our understanding and relationship with Methodism and John Wesley, we are beginning a 4-week small group weekly gathering on Zoom beginning Monday, Oct 11 and concluding Monday, November 1.  We will meet for one hour each week, either 1-2 pm or 7-8 pm.  Because the study will be the same for the day as the evening, you can join either one.  We will use the book This Day: A Wesleyan Way of Prayer.

You can get the book either at the links here  Amazon Book LinkCokesbury Book Link

Please read the section “The Daily Order and How To Use It” for the first class.

You will notice the prayers in the book are on a 30-day cycle.  Even though we are beginning on Oct 11, we will begin on ‘Day 1.’  We will talk more about this in the classes.

I hope you will join me on this journey.  It will be great if you email, text, or call me to let me know you are joining, however, this is not required. (You can decide that very day, even at that very hour.)

Seeking A/V substitutes for Sunday Worship!

The Worship Vitality Team is looking for a couple of substitute A/V team members when our regular A/V personnel is unable to be present. By volunteering, we will avoid Rev. Pam from doing the A/V on Sundays in addition to leading worship.  This includes setting up/taking down the equipment, running the worship presentation, and monitoring our live recordings. You’ll receive expert training, and a very cool opportunity to serve the church. If you are interested, email Pastor Pam pastor@lakemerrittumc.org with the subject titled “Audio/Visual Team” for more information.
