Lenten Study

"Experiencing God Directly
  Tuesdays  @ 10:00 AM

Rev. Dr. Marshall Davis will be leading a Lenten Study on his 2013 book entitled “Experiencing God Directly: The Way of Christian Nonduality.” This will consist of five one-hour sessions and be held at 10 o’clock on Tuesday mornings in the church fellowship hall. The sessions will focus on practicing the presence of God in our lives, especially the immediate experience of oneness with God in the present moment.
 
We will be reading chapters of the book, studying passages of the Bible, and practicing methods of contemplative prayer. Copies of the book will be available from Reverend Davis. Please bring the book and your Bible to each session.
 
Rev. Davis is a retired American Baptist pastor and has served churches in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and for eighteen years as pastor of the Community Church of Sandwich, New Hampshire. He and his wife Jude have been regular attenders at MUMC since 2017.

Shopping Cards For Missions

Our yearly total for 2018 was $3,064.71.  This was an increase of $377 over what was raised during 2017.

The year 2018 began our Shopping Cards for Missions program setting a goal of $3,000 for the ministry of Dr. Mark and Deirdre Zimmerman in Nepal.   With $900.12 raised during November and December, we reached our missions goal.  MUMC Outreach received $64.71 from the additional income during this past year. 

In 2019, we will again strive to earn $3,000 for spreading the love and grace of Jesus Christ to the people of Nepal.  We hope to increase the amount of money that MUMC Outreach receives through this program.

Please make an effort to actively support the Shopping Card Program in 2019 with your purchase of cards for your regular shopping needs (grocery, home improvement, on-line, department store, and restaurants, to name a few).    Your support of this ministry through prayers throughout the year is always appreciated.  Donations to the Zimmerman Ministries are also accepted. Please talk to Sue Scudder for donation information.

As of this writing, $117.10 was raised for the month of February for Missions.





Human Sexuality Policies and the Methodist Church

On February 17th, I offered a follow-up gathering to further discuss Human Sexuality and The United Methodist Church. We reviewed what I shared in
October regarding A Way Forward. Slides from that first gathering are still available here. The primary focus for this second gathering was to take a look at what Holy Scriptures say about homosexual practice and to talk a bit about our way forward based on what comes from the Special Session of General Conference. Annotated slides from this gathering are available here.

As your spiritual leader and the elder responsible for the ordering of God's church in Moultonborough, I implore you to study the slides from this gathering, to be in prayer with the heart and mind of Christ, and to stay in conversation and unity as the body of Christ. I see the potential for great growth in the body, as we show the world how we can be led by the Spirit and love as Jesus loved.

I will offer another follow-up gathering after a post-General Conference session of local UMC clergy on March 16th in Lebanon, NH.

Making disciples

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Over the past few weeks we have learned about discipleship and how each of us is called to “Offer Them Christ”. As we grow as disciples, we offer our time, our talents, our prayers, our witness, and our gifts to God. When the church receives pledges of future financial gifts, it allows us to determine the extent to which we can continue, and hopefully expand, the ministries and missions of the church. Please prayerfully consider making a commitment to the blessing of growing as a disciple of Christ, and to the financial support of God’s mission for the church.
