As the cooler days of autumn greet us, we will continue to “defy gravity” at St. Paul’s UMC.
 
On Nov. 5 Pastor Patti will tell us how we can “break free” from gravity. She will use the story of the prodigal son told in Luke 15 to emphasize her point. This will also be the Sunday the 3rd graders will receive a wonderful gift – their own personal Bible. At 8:30 the Sunrise Singers and Players will be providing special music for the service.
 
Pastor Sami will bring us the message on Nov. 12 when she will tell us how to be “Tethered to God”. She will use the scripture from 1 Timothy 6:17 which warns us not to be arrogant with our wealth, but rather put our hope in God.
 
On Nov. 19 Pastor Patti will assure us that we can defy gravity if we “Get it Right”. She will use the scripture from Luke 9:23-25 which warns us that if our aim is to gain the whole world, we could lose our very selves. This is also a Jazz Sunday, so come prepared to warm your spirits with some “cool jazz”.
 
This fall we are starting advent a week early on Nov. 26 with the theme being “Unwrapping Christmas”. The focus will be the preparation for Christmas with the excitement of unpacking the boxes out of storage. The scripture will be taken from Luke and Isaiah where Zechariah and Elizabeth prepare for the birth of their son.
