PRAY in the Spirit
GO into the world fearlessly!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
[Matthew 22: 37-40]

Greetings Morgan Church of the Nazarene!
How blessed I am to be your pastor! It was a year ago that God's stirrings were confirmed in all our hearts, and in obedience to God, as a congregation, you called me to be your pastor. How grateful I am that God has brought us together!
Can I just say, "I love family Sundays?" It is so good to be part of a church that doesn't just see children as those to be ministered to, but considers them a real part of the church. Let's continue to encourage our children, youth, and adults to be involved in worship!
I've heard from several of you how much you are enjoying our current series on the Kingdom of God. I am too! It has been a challenge to preach, and a challenge to live up to! But God's grace is sufficient and His Spirit empowers us. Thanks be to God!
This Sunday we will meet at usual, Sunday School at 9:30am and Worship at 10:45.
We DO have children's church this week.
Scriptures: Isaiah 5:1-7; Matthew 21:33-46
Sermon: "Listen to Another Parable" (Matthew 21:33-46)
We are working on some technology changes for recording and streaming. We will be sure to communicate clearly if there are any changes to our livestream on Sundays, and where you may need to go to participate. For now, we are still on FB at 10:45am.
CONCERT SUNDAY EVENING @ 6pm
The Pic & Bow will be with us on Sunday evening in the sanctuary. This will be a very enjoyable evening of music and worship. Also, we will be taking a love offering for them.
Prayer This Week:
(excerpts from "A Sure Foundation," Praying in the Wesleyan Spirit by Paul Chilcote)
Faithful God...Jesus is a rock, a sure foundation upon which to build a life worth living...so I ask myself, in prayer this day, upon which foundation am I building my life? Have I built upon the foundation of simply believing the right things, acting the right ways, harming no one and doing good works, or attending the right church?...
Here is the foundation that will stand the test of time: add meekness of wisdom and contentment to my seriousness. Enable me to love the sinner while speaking the truth in love. Remove worldly desires for wealth, honors, and pleasures from my heart. Empower me to love my neighbor just as I love myself and to be merciful and kind to everyone I meet. Purify my heart and create a welcoming space there for you to reign forever. Amen.
Here are a few announcements I want to draw your attention to:

October 17 - All Church Work Day
October 24 - Children Bible Quiz in Ray
October 31 - Fall Fun Fest (details TBD), needing many volunteers!

Grace & Peace,
