"Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness." Psalms 29:2

Note from Pastor Nancy
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind.

Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives.

     In the coming months (hopefully launching at the end of November) we are going to be starting a new program at Fulton First UMC called Celebrate Recovery. CR is a national program and network of gatherings for people struggling with hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind.
     CR is about real people admitting they struggle and people who are willing to consider the real possibility that they can find freedom over their addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors as they embrace a real and transformative relationship with God and others. There is a saying in CR....No Perfect People Allowed! 

     As we look around our community we know that individuals are struggling with all types of addictions that keep them from living whole, joyful lives. This program and it is for anyone that has been affected by addition. It is going to be a come as you are gathering most likely on Friday evenings. The evening gathering will feature singing, a personal testimony from a different person each week, and small breakout groups for support and conversation. 

     Kimberly Curry will be taking a lead on this ministry that she is passionate about for our community. If you have any questions or just want to hear more about the endeavor please talk to Kimberly. Her passion for finding and walking along side people recovering is a gift for FUMC. 
     A few specific prayer needs for this new endeavor to be a success are a male lead to come forward to partner with Kimberly, childcare support to eliminate barriers for parents, and a snack rotation support for hospitality. Kimberly has been attending some area Celebrate Recovery groups and will be going to a national training later this month. Please share if you think you are going to be available to help and most of all pray for all the individuals that will come.
Note from Youth Pastor Kat
     The youth have been pretty busy in the last few months! Here's what has been going on lately! 

     We enjoyed a fun trip to Memphis to the Urban Air Trampoline Park where the youth got to test their Ninja Warrior skills, climb a ropes course, and jump until their heart's content. It was a lot of fun! We are gearing up for a fun month of fall festivities in October.

     Last Sunday the youth were able to teach Sunday School for Rotation Station and it was a blast! The youth taught about Jesus' miracles and let the children participate in some skits as well. We talked specifically about the 10 lepers and Jesus calming the storm. It was a lot of fun for all involved! I am always impressed by the youth's willingness to serve others, especially the children in our church. They have also stepped up in helping with the 3 in 1 program!

     Over the next few weeks, we are looking to continue our small group study on prayer on Sunday nights. We are studying 1 John on Wednesday nights. It is always a joy to gather together as a group. We are also looking forward to the LakeShore Fall retreat coming up at the end of October and are planning on serving hot dogs again to the community with our Halloween celebration at the parsonage. Hopefully, we can squeeze in some time to carve and decorate some pumpkins as well!

     I'd just like to remind everyone what a joy it is to spend time with the young people in our church. They are a fantastic group that just love each other and love Jesus. I am honored to get to spend time with them week after week. If you don't know a youth in our church I challenge you to get to know one! I would just ask that you cover us all in prayer with upcoming activities, growth, and planning for the future.
