Today (11-3-13), we discuss the book of Ruth with Chapter 9 of The Story. Next week we will be studying chapter 10, which is based on the Bible’s 1 Samuel.
Please visit our newly revised KUMC website. It is still under construction, but new features have already been added. We are now publishing an Announcements page, in case you missed something in worship. By clicking on the Calendar tab, you will see a real-time calendar which shows you everything on the church schedule. Finally, we have added a tab called Story Questions, which includes companion thought starters for each chapter of The Story. The location is the same, www.kantnerunitedmethodist.net.
KFC is junior church for children which takes place Sunday mornings during the worship hour. Children should first come to the sanctuary to experience the beginning of worship. They will be dismissed for KFC when the congregation begins to sing the first hymn. It is important that the children do not go to the KFC room until the adult supervision arrives at that time. Included are: Biblical activities, games, crafts and much more based on the study called “The Story”. Also, KFC will be making Christmas ornaments after each lesson in October and November.
As parents, the Christian education of our children is one of our most important tasks. Your elementary age children can receive Christian instruction in the context of fun and friendship by coming to Kids 4 Jesus, a midweek children’s fun and learning group. Held every Wednesday at 7:00 pm., all kids age 3 through 5th grades are invited to attend. Contact Jodell Zimmerman (814-893-5493) if you have any questions.
We have a new church secretary. We wish the best to our former secretary, Linda Hayward, who recently resigned for personal reasons. Our new secretary is Debbie Zimmerman. Otherwise all the church office contact info remains the same.
There will be no newsletter published for the month of November. For upcoming events, please visit our website at www.kantnerunitedmethodist.net or watch the church bulletin.
Next Sunday we will be recognizing and celebrating the service of our veterans. If you or members of your family are veterans, we cordially invite you to attend this special worship service.
