Throughout our series “Altars” we have looked at altar-experiences from the perspective that in scripture “altars are significant, and altars alter us.” This basic idea simply communicates that whenever an altar shows up in a biblical story, something significant is going to happen with the potential for life changing power. In all of human history, no altar experience has ever been as significant as the one described in Hebrews 10. It is there that the writer of Hebrews describes a sacrifice being offered “once and for all”. We will explore this as our “Final Altar” on Sunday, and talk about the significance it carries for our lives. Beyond worship this week, here are a few things to keep note of in the life of the church:
Major Church Council Meeting on Tuesday! – The Church Council meeting on September 26th at 6:00pm is one of our most significant meetings of the year. This is the meeting when we approve our administrative and ministry plans for the next year, and so we hope all council members will plan to be there. Council meetings are open to the entire church, so we encourage all of you to come and hear our plans for the future, as we order the life of the congregation for fruitful ministry in 2018! • Upcoming Doctoral Travel – I want to make sure you all know that I will be out of the country from September 28th to October 12th for my third year residency for my
Doctor of Ministry Program. For those two weeks I will be in Thailand with limited access to phone and email, and obviously no availability for in person pastoral care. Worship will be covered both Sundays I am away by wonderful guest preachers and our music teams, and any pastoral care needs can be handled through the church office. Please pray for my travel, my studies, and most importantly my family.
Guest Preachers: I am reluctantly excited to share that Dr. Jay Harris and Dr. Rick Lanford will be our guest preachers for October 1st and 8th, respectively. I say reluctantly because I wish I could be there to hear them! Jay is the Assistant to the Bishop for Ministerial Services, and a former boss and mentor of mine. Rick is no stranger to our congregation, and serves as our district superintendent in the North Central District. You will be thoroughly blessed by both of them!
October Center of the Week Experiences – I am excited to announce that Jamie Hill, our new Director of Children’s Ministries, will be leading our devotion time for the Wednesday that I am gone on October 4th. You will be blessed to hear her share, and this will be a wonderful opportunity for those of you that are not involved in the children’s ministry to get to know her! I will be back for our 3rd Sunday Center of the Week on October 18th, and I am going to share some photos and stories from my Thailand trip that night. I hope that you will plan to join in the fellowship at these two unique experiences during October.
Information on the making cleaning and hygiene kits is available at www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies and if you drop them off at our office, we will make sure it gets to the designated drop off location at Wesley UMC on Hartley Bridge Road.

This journey will expand and very likely redefine your understanding of the person, teachings, and life of Jesus Christ.

You are invited to join us for study, fellowship, and of course, good coffee!
We meet on second room on the left as you enter Church's Administrative Wing
The Apostles' Creed
Culture has changed. Church beliefs shouldn't. Is is easy for our culture of individuality and innovation to shape the way we think about the church. With so many questions, opinions,nd interpretattion amoong people today--even withing the church-- what should we all agree on as essential to the Christian Faith?
For more than 1,600 years the Apostles' Creed has united the church around core Christian dosctrines as revealed in Scripture. This historic cofession points us to the foundational belief of our faith and to the life-changing truth of the gospel.
Join us as we consider the value of declairing our shared beliefs with one another and will affirm the long tradition of the Christians who came before us. We meet in the first classroom on the left when you enter the Church's Administrative Wing.

"The Real Heaven--What the Bible Actually Says... What comes to your mind when you think about Heaven? Clouds? Harps? Angels? Singing? Now, honestly, does that really sound like a great way to spend eternity? The good news is, that is NOT what Heaven is like. And when you discover what really awaits you there, it will radically change your view of your future and of Heaven. In this 3 part series from Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we'll do there, what we'll experience and how we're to prepare for eternity today. Join the Seekers SS Class as we discover the amazing truth of what awaits us all in Heaven"
