SLOW CHURCH MEETING tomorrow night, Oct. 3rd, at the Parson’s residence at 6:00pm.

In our membership vows and each time we welcome a new member, we say together these words from our Methodist Hymnal: “As members together with you in the body of Christ and in this congregation of the United Methodist Church, we renew our covenant faithfully to participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, and our service, that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.” Every Sunday through October 16 we will be focusing on one of these five commitments. May we be in prayer about each vow.

CENTERING PRAYER: Introductory sessions on Centering Prayer will be offered at St John the Evangelist church (corner of Shore Rd and Barlow’s Landing in Pocasset) on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:00pm beginning October 6th. All welcome. Information about this prayer practice can be found on www.contemplativeoutreach.org.
