SERVICE OF HEALING AND WHOLENESS: The Service of Healing and Wholeness has been a long standing tradition in the Methodist Church. Although this service does not guarantee that everyone will be completely physically or mentally healed after attending, we can promise that the healing will begin at least spiritually. In this service, we will pray for one another and seek God’s power to heal and make us whole in His will as He promised us He would. There will be laying on of hands as an expression of the presence of Christ working to heal and be an undeniable presence in our lives. Anointing with oil will also be offered as an expression of the love of God, the anointment of Christ, and the physical mark of being claimed by the Holy Spirit as a child of God. All are invited to this service since we all in some way are hurting. Let us be present with one another and pray for one another. The service will be Sunday, September 27th at 6:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Crossville FUMC. 

THURSDAY MORNING WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY: “DANIEL” began September 24th. Just as the prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats, today’s believers face many of the same trials. Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy is a 12 week DVD Bible study from best-selling author Beth Moore. This fascinating study of the book of Daniel shows how individuals can live with integrity in today’s self-absorbed society. Classes meet Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon, Sept. 24th through Dec. 17th. It’s not to late to join the class, order you workbook ($20) by contacting Cathy Camera at cathycamera@charter.net or by phone at (931) 265-5202.

SPECIAL CALLED CHARGE CONFERENCE: Dear Friends, you are invited to a very special called Charge Conference to be held Monday, October 5, 2015, at 6:00 PM, in the Old Sanctuary. The purpose of the Conference is to approve Anna Hill’s Candidacy for Ministry as she moves forward in the process toward her ordination in the United Methodist Church. Our Staff-Pastor Parrish Committee has interviewed Anna and given their unanimous recommendation for her approval. The Charge Conference will meet for the purpose of affirming that recommendation. This will then place Anna in the hands of the District Committee on Ministry as she continues in the process. Anna has been nurtured and formed in the church her entire life! Let’s gather together to share a time of worship, hear from Anna, and send her forward with our blessing! Mark your calendars for Monday, 10/5/15, at 6:00 p.m. It will be a very special time together!
