    • Weekly News from WCUMC11/10/2013 Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. Living God's Grace in an Unbelieving World A Sermon Series on 1 Peter “A Faithful Life of Humility” 1 Peter 5:1-11 Therefore, I have a request for the elders among you. (I ask this as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ's sufferings, and as one who shares in the glory that is about to be revealed.) I urge the elders: Like shepherds, tend the flock of God among you. Watch over it. Don't shepherd because you must, but do it voluntarily for God. Don't shepherd greedily, but do it eagerly. Don't shepherd by ruling over those entrusted to your care, but become examples to the flock. And when the chief shepherd appears, you will receive an unfading crown of glory. In the same way, I urge you who are younger: accept the authority of the elders. And everyone, clothe yourselves with humility toward each other. God stands against the proud, but he gives favor to the humble. Therefore, humble yourselves under God's power so that he may raise you up in the last day. Throw all your anxiety onto him, because he cares about you. Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith. Do so in the knowledge that your fellow believers are enduring the same suffering throughout the world. After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, the one who called you into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will
    • himself restore, empower, strengthen, and establish you. To him be power forever and always. Amen. Faithful Christian leaders commit to grow in a vital personal relationship with Jesus Christ   Peter submitted to Christ and was willing to learn and obey all that God had for him. Peter had a desire to please Christ and Christ alone… setting an example for all people under his care. Peter gave the Church 3 biblical principles to obey in order to glorify God in the midst of their trials: 1. Live a life of humility (vs. 5-7) I urge you who are younger: accept the authority of the elders. And everyone, clothe yourselves with humility toward each other. God stands against the proud, but he gives favor to the humble. Therefore, humble yourselves under God's power so that he may raise you up in the last day. Throw all your anxiety onto him, because he cares about you. 2. Be clearheaded and keep alert (vs. 8-9) Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith. Do so in the knowledge that your fellow believers are enduring the same suffering throughout the world. 3. Be hopeful (vs. 10-11) After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, the one who called you into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will himself restore, empower, strengthen, and establish you. To him be power forever and always. Amen. _____________________________________________ Questions for Personal or Group Reflection: (1 Peter 5:1-11) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. How does Peter describe himself in verses 1-4? What are the qualities of a faithful pastor and leader? How should congregations respond to and support their pastor(s)? What advice/encouragement does Peter give for glorifying God in the midst of trials and challenges? Why does God see pride as such a destructive sin? How is submission an act of faith? Describe in practical terms what it means to throw all our anxieties on to God. (Think of examples how you have or haven’t given your anxieties to God. What was the difference?)

    • "Finding Bethlehem in the Midst of Bedlam" The Open Door Class invites you to join us at 9:00 AM on Sunday, November 24 as we take time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas with a 5-week Advent study. Christmas or confusion, Bethlehem or bedlam . . . Which will you choose this year? The truth is, we don’t have to choose, because Christmas always happens right in the midst of our confusion. God breaks into our confusion and is made known in Jesus Christ. That’s what this study is about––how Christ breaks into our chaos and confusion and brings Christmas––how Bethlehem always happens in the midst of bedlam. This thematic Advent study for 2013 has five sessions. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion, a brief prayer, a focus for the week, and six daily Bible readings for personal devotional time during the week. All are welcome. Books are $10. Contact Don Morgan at dsmorg2@comcast.net to order. SOCK IT TO HOMELESSNESS You can make a difference in the life of a homeless person. Start collecting men's new white socks, and bring them in during our Open House Sock Drive Kick-Off Sunday, October 20, 2013'1:30 - 3:00 PM
