Men to Gather around the Word… and then to Gather Leaves! (11/14/15)

Posted by on Nov 7, 2015 in EventAnnouncement, Friends & Fellowship, men, UMM | 0 comments

The Men’s Fellowship Group will hold our monthly gathering on Saturday Nov. 14.  The gathering runs from 7:30 AM until 9:00 AM.  After the gathering we will “gather” at Cedar & Alcyon Blvd. to rake some leaves as part of the town’s “clean communities” program…. 

 

Gathering in the Church…

At 7:30 AM we will get together in the Potter’s Hand room for an hour of Bible Study.  Our guest speaker will be UMM Fellowship 2015-01-10 _IMG_1524Ryan Falkenberg.  Ryan is a Youth Pastor and intern at Joy Community Fellowship (Pitman).

In 2008 he started with a group of friends and has continued to teach high school students; helping them to grow in the Word and in faith in Jesus Christ.  He considers working with the Youth to be his joy and passion.

 

Psalm 51:12-13

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. 

Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.   NIV

 

Gathering in the Leaves….

After the gathering, at 9:00 AM, we will meet at the “lost lake run” which is at the corner of Cedar Ave and Alcyon Blvd. in Pitman.  This is a familiar spot to our group; we’ve beautified this corner twice in the past few years.  Since we  UMM Cleanup 2015- John Walt _IMG_1978were there last the leaves continued to fall, and so we’re needed again!  We need to pick up trash and rake leaves and return this “lost lake” back  into the oasis of beauty that it deserves to be.

Rakes, gloves, and other equipment will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own tools is you want.

We’re doing this, not only out of service to the community, but also as a way to raise money for our retreat scholarships and speakers.  Our participation is all part of the town’s clean communities program, and we will be paid if we supply a certain number of people for a specified time.

Not only is it worth some money to us, and not only does it clean up our town, but this effort also gives us a chance to get to know eachother better.  Spending a few hours with someone raking leaves is a surprisingly good way to build friendships.

 

So remember the Men’s Fellowship Group on Saturday Nov. 14.  Drop by the church at 7:30 for a Bible Study, and stop by the “Lost Lake Run” to help us clean up and to bolster some friendships.
