Apostle’s Creed – Traditional Version

Apostle’s Creed – Traditional Version

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic** church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

 

 

*Traditional use of this creed includes these words: “He descended into hell.”
**universal

These are the versions in the current United Methodist Hymnal.

Neighbor to Neighbor September

Neighbor to Neighbor September

During our last Neighbor-to-Neighbor Project, the homeowner (an SHUMC member) asked Bob M. to evaluate a soft/squishy spot on her porch deck. After a little investigation Bob discovered that at least one floor joist and several uprights needed replacing.

He called Greg F. and they together completed the work. They worked on Thursday & Friday September 4 & 5, 2020 and completed the job today (9/8/2020). This project included the removal and replacement the one rotten 2″x6″ floor joist and several 2″x4″ uprights as needed, and removal and replacement of the exterior vinyl skirting. The project cost $152.84, of which the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program will be requested to cover.

A total of 32 volunteer hours were expended and a total of 57 miles were driven in the completion of this project. Thankyou Bob and Greg for a job well done!

Projects will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis taking into consideration the needs of the person seeking assistance and “weighing against N2N’s current workload, resources and capabilities at the time of project submission.

N2N collaborates with other organizations (both profit and non-profit) as necessary to assist people in need, and sometimes to defray the costs of materials people just can’t afford.

UMCOR Sunday, March 22, 2020

UMCOR Sunday, March 22, 2020

What is UMCOR SUNDAY ? The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) lives out signs of Christ’s extravagant grace in the world by prayerfully working with communities that are overwhelmed by natural or man-made disasters. UMCOR builds on the strengths of what is already available in a community and actively involves the people affected in recovery efforts.

One of the wonderful aspects of The United Methodist Church is that we can do so much more together than we ever could do on our own – and through our connection UMCOR has been doing this for 80 years.

The special offering received on UMCOR Sunday helps support the small but impactful UMCOR staff who are specialists in disaster response and recovery. Funds also ensure adequate training for emergency response coordinators, construction volunteers, and case managers who assist victims of disasters, chain saw gangs and sheetrock installers.

Getting to Know Each Other

Getting to Know Each Other

Small groups bring people together. It gives us a time in which to get to know someone that we might only see at a worship service or church large group function. The focus is on friendships, common interests, and social activities. The whole point of these is to get connected to others in a Christian context.

Our Connect groups may be a time for reviewing a bible verse, sharing a devotion, socializing, and sharing with each other what Jesus means to one another. It is a time to gather together to care, share, support and have some fun with each other.

Small groups can help us develop a greater sense of Christian community in a disconnected age. They can facilitate the formation of deeper Christian friendships and encourage greater spiritual accountability. As we catch up with friends and make new ones, we practice our calling to understand and love each other.

We currently have four groups at SHUMC. Email the church office for more information.
