10 - October letter

 
Fall Festival
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 29 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm! There will be a cake walk, carnival style games, and a trunk or treat. Fall Festival is a wonderful outreach opportunity that we have to build connections with our neighbors, but we need you to make it happen. Volunteers for game booths, trunk or treat, kitchen, decorating, and cleanup are all needed. We also are requesting donations of lots of candy, canned drinks, bottled water, individually packaged chips, hot dog buns, and hot dogs. Sign up with Pastor Kathy or visit our pumpkin patch in the Narthex outside of the sanctuary. 
 
Flavors of Fall Charge Conference
Sunday, October 13 at 4 pm
We'll be having a church-wide get together to celebrate how we have been Team Jesus this past year and to look forward to 2020. Groups are welcome to set up display tables to showcase their ministries. The 2020 proposed budget and committees will be presented at this time. Please bring a fall flavored snack to share! 
 
Laity Sunday is Sunday, October 20.

It is already this time again! You and your family are invited to schedule a photography session on either Thursday, November 7 from 2 - 9 pm; Friday, November 8 from 2 - 9 pm; or Saturday, November 9 from 10 am - 5 pm. In return, you will be included in a new church-wide directory, receive one free 8 x 10 print and a church directory, and have the opportunity to purchase more prints! 
 
Kickoff with Team Jesus!
Football season has arrived! Every year we gather together to watch exciting plays, athletes at their best, and our favorite teams. Yet, God desires for His church to be a team as well. For the month of October, we will be kicking off a new sermon series called, "Kickoff with Team Jesus!" Using football and 2 Timothy, we will explore how we at FUMC Picayune can be a team that helps make disciples for the transformation of the world. Come be a team player!

I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what you will. Rank me with whom you will. Put me to doing; put me to suffering. Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. Let me be full. Or let me be empty. Let me have all things. Or let me have nothing. I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.   Amen

-John Wesley
