A note from Pastor Kim
Well, 2018-2019 is off to a fantastic start. Our Sunday School programming this year is really engaging and will focus on prayer. Here’s a question for you… When was the last time you prayed? Really prayed. Yes, when brakes squeal we all instinctively hold on and ask for safety. I’m talking about a really spending time with God. Many folks-including me at times- are so busy that prayer gets passed by. And sometimes prayer might seem like a waste of time. Or that our schedules are so tight that taking time to pray would only cause more stress and chaos.

Martin Luther, when once asked what his plans, for the following day were, answered: ?Work, work, from early until late. In fact, I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.?

I realized this summer on our Mission trips that the practice of prayer is much needed in our kids lives. So this year through Sunday school we will spend a dedicated part of our time focusing on prayer, what is it, what it does and how we can do it in a variety of ways. We will be sending home each month a family prayer suggestion. A way for fami-lies to pray together and encourage prayer in many forms including individually. So check your family mailbox. Our kids and our families and our lives are much too busy to not spend time building our relationship with God through prayer.

PUMPKIN PATCH Evangelism It bears repeating.
Our front lawn encounters here at WUMC are some of the best things about our church. If it is the White ele-phant sale or Christmas trees or our most recent addition of the Pumpkin Patch, these times we get to meet people and share some fun and a smile are some of the best times of fellowship we have here at WUMC. And in doing so we are not only raising the funds needed to facilitate our missions in the community and with our Youth, but we are reaching people and showing them just how we are putting our faith into action. You can be part of that too. You are as able and as needed as anyone to be part of what it takes to share God’s love and let people know that this church belongs to them too.

Family fun in the pumpkin patch.
Our pumpkin Patch this year will be more fun than ever. In addition to the Photo spots, this year we are planning
some special events including a classic Car Rally, Food Truck and Corn Hole tournament. To be held on
October 20th. Save the date Some famous Food trucks will be making the day great by selling some of their
famous foods in our Patch. your family can sign up to work the pumpkin patch too! Kim can't live there this
year so be sure to sign up to cover a shift or 2 to help make this the most fun ever!

Princess & Wizard Party & Trunk or Treat.
The 4th annual Princess and Wizard Party is planned for October 28th at 3pm followed by Trunk or Treat at
4pm. Anyone wishing to participate in decorating their car for trunk or Treat that might need assistance with
