So have you been to a Cottage Meeting yet?
I have been to six with many more to attend over the next several weeks.  If you are really curious I can tell you this much, the refreshments are wonderful and the people are well….the people are fabulous! Seriously, I have to give a huge thank you to all our host and hostesses for their time and hospitality.  Also, thank you to each of you that are taking your time to attend and meet with me and others.  Cottage meetings are a time for me to hear your story--to know who you are, what you do and how God has been and continues to be in your life.   Cottage meetings are not a time to tell me what you want at church.  Not that I don’t care, but there will be other ways for those things to be known. In our beginning months together, I am most interested in hearing your story.  Most of us do not acknowledge that we have a story--maybe a life, but a story. It sounds dramatic, maybe a little Hollywood when you say it that way.  But you do have a story.  Your story is an important story, as it is part of God’s greater story.  Your life is lived in God’s story and it is important that we give voice to our story.  Giving voice to our story can be the beginning of understanding our story in relation to God’s story and in relation to the community of faith story.  We are God’s people with stories to share.  Along with hearing stories, I love to hear laughter.  Where two or more are gathered there will be laughter!

“Where two or more are gathered there will be laughter!”  
So try your best to meet me at the cottage. If you are not able to get out, let someone know and we will assist you as best we can. I look forward to hearing from you.   Happy fall, back-to-school time, and cooler temperatures. Keep introducing yourself to me by name and I promise I should remember your name by winter!  Blessings and Peace. Pastor Emily

A group of 11 people traveled 15.5 hours to Gallup New Mexico to do Mission work with Hands and Feet Ministry. We departed on Sunday August 5th at 6 am in the First United Church bus. Team members included: Kelby Johnson, Erica Hadachek, Sarah Kemmerer, Molly Williams, Kale Johnson, Sean Meckley, Gary Hadachek, Alan Richecky, Tom Williams, Mikel Hadachek, and Phil Meckley. The group included members with as many as 4 mission trips under their belt to members going on their first mission. The Mission Team did a 3 day Bible School in the Marino Lake Chapter, did painting that ranged from helping a 103 year old Navajo Lady (Grandma Berth), to a living room and bed room for an elderly lady in the Chapter of Iyanbito, to Answer God’s Call president’s house (Elston), to serving the homeless under a tree in Gallup. During the week long adventure, we had the opportunity to visit nightly with Hands and Feet, Answer God’s Call, and others that were missionaries as we ate with the Otero family and did devotions. Roy (from Hands and Feet) talked each night after dinner in a devotion setting that put us back into our places and reminded us why we were there. Our nights were also busy as we were able to partake in Navajo Dancers, Annual Inter-Tribal celebration, hiking at Red Rock, and shopping in downtown Gallup. The fellowship that the team members had on the trip also had a large impact on each and every one of us. Submitted by Tom Williams MISSION TEAM MEETING Our Mission projects have a big role at FUMC, and we have a great group of volunteers serving on the Local, VIM and Disaster Relief teams! We will be meeting on Thursday, Sept. 20th at 7:00 pm. Come join us! We hope to see all who are presently serving or wanting to serve on our team! Janet Heyka, VIM Coordinator

Wow! Our next Everyone Serve Sunday is right around the corner, September 30th! We just got everything put away from the last one and here it is time to get back after it. We don't have projects finalized yet, however, we do have a few ideas floating around like the leaves that might come the 30th. If you know of someone or something in need in the community that our congregation can help with, please let us know. After Worship, the Fellowship Ministry Team has planned a sandwich, salad & dessert dinner for us before we get started on our ES projects. Food, drinks and table service will all be provided by them. Our thanks to Carol Monsanto, Susan Arbuthnot, Gina Aurand, Tandy Rundus, Stephanie Schintler, Lori Scofield, Molly Williams, Sherry Skinner, Stacia Piroutek and Lizz Skocny for what we know will be a yummy meal treat. Mark your calendar for the 30th and remember it is a great time to bring a friend to church! Kelli Childs, Annette Bredthauer, Lizz Skocny - ESS Coordinators

Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

The fairstand committee would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help make this year a success. From the early morning start up crew to the end of night closers, to the pie bakers and pie cutters, to the soup makers and burger makers, and anyone that helped, we had a great bunch of people helping. A special thank you to those outside our church family that volunteered too. The week started out hot, but ended with a beautiful Saturday. Thank you again to all who helped make this year a great success! The Fairstand Building Committee: Lynn & Kim VanNortwick (Overall Chairs), Kevin Johnson, Allen Johnson, Jeanette Sheets, Terry Skinner and Marvin Houdek (Treasurer)

The old food stand is gone and construction has begun on the new building. If you haven't already, you should drive by and check it out. Anyone who has made a pledge or anyone wanting to make a donation can give the money to Allen Johnson or Marvin Houdek, or one of the other team members. Watch for progress reports in upcoming newsletters. Articles submitted by Kim VanNortwick, Co-Overall Food Stand Chair

The Leadership Team recently met on August 22nd. We opened with a reading about growing vital congregations and with a personal learning session from Pastor Emily about examining your relationship with God on a daily basis. We focused much of our discussion on Trustee needs for repairs and on the vision of the church to accomplish our mission statement. Please see the Trustee report to learn about all the repair needs the church and parsonage currently are facing. We felt like the church needed a vision to go along with the mission statement to help remind members where we are headed. A vision should always be changing, but right now the Leadership Team decided our vision should be: Passionate Worship, Life of Prayer, Bible Study, and Purposeful Mission. If someone asks you what the church is doing, you can now say we are striving for passionate worship or we do purposeful mission. Hopefully, it will give you guidance and direction for the church. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any members of the Leadership Team. Please plan on attending one of the upcoming Cottage meetings and be looking for info on Stewardship in the near future. And once again, if you have any questions on anything going on in the church, don't be afraid to ask. In Christ's Love, Kurt Childs - LT Leader

Steward shi p S und ay O c to b e r 21 s t, 2 012
People who practice Extravagant Generosity give with unexpected liberality, they make giving a first priority, and they plan their giving with great energy and passion. They go the second mile. They do not give from a “what remains” mentality, but from a “what comes first” priority. Giving seriously becomes a personal spiritual discipline, a way of serving God, and a means of helping the church fulfill its Godappointed mission. Focused conviction and intention causes them to give in a more pronounced way, without fear and with greater trust.

The Church Trustees Building and Grounds updates for Mid-year 2012... The Trustees have made many changes, repairs and improvements to the Church, Grounds and Parsonage so far this year. At the Parsonage: We have removed four trees; one which was badly damaged by storms & was replaced with a Golden Maple hybrid, paid for by a private donation. The sidewalk at the same location has been replaced utilizing the City of Belleville’s sidewalk program and a local contractor. Early this year, a new refrigerator was purchased for the kitchen and the kitchen window replaced. Several light fixtures have been replaced in the Parsonage with ceiling fans or new light fixtures, two of which were replaced with a private donation. A damaged area in the ceiling has been repaired and painted as well as the interior of the garage repainted. The drapes in the living & dining room have been purchased by a private donation. The Trustees have repaired or replaced many other items needing attention such as the privacy fence, basement bathroom, water softener, closet doors and the front entry door. Current Projects at the Parsonage: New landscaping is now in the works including reseeding and adding new plantings and features around the front of the Parsonage and south lawn. We would like to replace the windows in the north living and dining rooms before winter, as they let in cold air. At the Church: We have had to pay for several repairs this year. One of the two main AC/Furnaces has had to have a motor replaced, the north fire escape flat roof has been replaced. Several electrical issues and light fixtures have been repaired or replaced. The overflow/meeting room walls have been repaired and repainted. Current Repairs needed at the Church: The Food Bank has experienced damp walls in the areas they use downstairs, so much so that they have had to move their shelves and supplies away from the walls to keep the supplies dry. To fix this issue the basement walls need repair and rain drainage needs to be addressed; this is also true with the north storage areas in Fellowship Hall. The chimney of the Church has leaked into the classroom above the overflow. The chimney and the interior walls around the area need repair. Some of the face brick on the outside of the Church need to be reset as to avoid further damage or loss of the bricks themselves. A site inspection to find out why the walls have leaked in has determined that the rain gutters on the Church are not large enough to carry the water from the larger than normal roof. Replacement with commercial building rain gutters which are larger in width will help direct the water away from the building. This would also eliminate the issue with the north Sanctuary wall that has been wet from time to time. The Church Kiosk (Front Lawn Sign) replacement: The Trustees continue to receive donations for the Kiosk Project. In your January 2012 Newsletter a representation of the new Kiosk was shown. To date the Project is still about $4,000 short of being able to finish the project. This will be a brick & motor sign similar in size with the same flaming cross attached and a new digital display board much like the one at Astra Bank. The sign once completed could be used to announce Church events, Service times, Weddings, Mission – Youth – UMW Projects. The Trustees are anxious to see this done, the old Kiosk has been down for a long time now and the temporary banner replaced once. Your Church Trustees have a long list. They have a modest budget in which they have stretched to the maximum. The buildings are at a point where we need to fix the problems before they get any larger or more expensive. Any donation to the Trustees can be recorded in your reported giving. Your help will be greatly appreciated by the Trustees and will help enable them to care for the Church properties you have entrusted them with. The Church Trustees are: Janet Heyka, Annette Bredthauer, Molly Williams, Sid Scofield, Jerry Melton, Jerry Richecky, Russ Piroutek and Don Westphal. The next time you talk to one of the Trustees, please do thank them for their work and time. All of the Trustees have taken their personal time, equipment and talents to help with the repairs and projects mentioned above. I would like to express my appreciation to each Trustee for their help when asked to take on a task. I would also like to say thank you to the UMW Ladies and Alan Engle who helped prepare the Parsonage for Pastor Emily’s family, and last but not least, thank you Rich Schintler and Jerry Melton for the use of your equipment and generous time at the Parsonage. Submitted by Jay Kallman, Trustee Chair Estimates / Totals for Church and Parsonage Projects: Estimate to repair roof eaves / rain gutters all around the Church Estimate to repair basement walls Estimate to repair north slope roof & seal/repair Chimney Estimate to replace remaining broken sidewalks at Parsonage Estimate for sprinkler system at Parsonage Replace four windows on north of Parsonage Replace roof on northeast fire escape $ 6,600 $ 2,000 $ 2,500 $ 3,000 $ 5,000 $ 2,850 $ 2,250 $24,200

Dear
UMW
people,
and
others,
I've
had
a
busy,
busy
time,
but
very
enjoyable,
since
I
last
wrote.

We
really
welcome
Pastor
 Emily
 Meckley
 into
 our
UMW
 org.
 
I
have
really
 been
 keeping
 her
busy
 learning
 some
of
 the
opportunities
many
 of
 our
 women
of
the
church
have
had
to
serve
in
the
community,
nursing
homes,
etc.,
and
represent
our
church
family.

 I
attended
"School
of
Mission"
in
Salina 
and
really
enjoyed
it.

Next
year
it
will
be
called
Mission
"U".

"Immigration
and
the
 Bible"

and
"Poverty"
were
the
two
sessions
I
attended.

We
were
made
conscious 
(1)
that
immigration
has 
been
happening
 since
creation‐‐the
Trinity
was
over
all
things 
and
moving
 around.

Adam
and
Eve
immigrated
from
the
Garden
of
 Eden.

(2)
 How
far
back
in
your
own
linage
do
you
have
to
go
before
you
come
upon
an
immigrant‐‐I'll
bet
not
far.

(3)
There
are
several
 stages 
of
 immigration:
 
the
green
card
which
is
more
permanent,
the
work
or
school
visa,
 and
the
non‐documented.

Not
 having
 easier
 legal
 ways
 to
 enter
 this
 country
 causes
 much
 of
 the
corruption
 we
 associate
 with
 immigration.
 
I
 hadn't
 thought
 about
 these
so
 much
 until
 our
 leader,
 Elizabeth,
 explained
 her
 life.
 
She
 comes
 from
 a
very
 poor
 family
 in
 the
 Philippines,
where
girls
are
never
educated
and
the
family
struggled
to
even
have
food.
 
By
chance,
her
gr'mother
took
her
 under
her
wing
and
saw
to
it
that
 she
was
educated
and
even
got
 to
 come
to
 California
on
a
VISA
 and
get
her
master's
 degree.

She
is
now
a
clergy,
elder,
in
our
UMC.

She
is 
married
to
a
US
citizen
and
has
worked
for
one
of
the
world
united
 religious
organizations,
and
has
done
much
 traveling.
 
After
 her
 contract
 was
finished
with
 them
her
 husband
wanted
 to
 come
back
 to
the
USA
 and
finish
his 
seminary.
 
They
went
to
NY
and
she
had
a
job
promised
with
General
Board
of
Global
 Ministries.

Then
she/they
found
her
visa
had
run
out
and
she
was
among
the
non‐documented
immigrants 
in
this
country.
 
 They
could
not
hire
her.
They
lived
in
complete
poverty
as
he
tried
to
finish
his
seminary
in
one
year
and
she
tried
to
be
a
 volunteer
in
a
food
bank
to
help
pay
 back
 for
their
food.
 
They
used
a
borrowed
car
from
his
brother.
 
Finally,
18
months
 later,
she
was
cleared
with
a
green
card
(I
believe)
 and
found
out
the
Board
of
Global
Ministries
actually
had
been
holding
 the
position
for
her.

Her
experiences
of
poverty
and
immigration
opened
many
of
our
eyes
to
some
of
the
shortcomings 
of
 our
laws
and
 of
 understanding
on
these
two
subjects.
 
There
is
 much
more
to
it,
but
I
 must
say,
 I
am
more
open
 to
 the
 problems
 in
both
 situations
 and
 am
 much
 more
understanding.
 
I
 still
 have
negative
feelings,
but
 had
 a
 real
"attitude
 adjustment"
while
there.
 
We
were
also
reminded
that
lack
of
 education
and
lack
of
 funds,
many
 times
is
 what
lets
 bad
 rulers
take
over
countries.

"Poverty
is
like
living
in
jail,
living
under
bondage,
waiting
to
be
free",
says
a
Jamaican
woman.
 
 Mother
of
six
in
Haiti
says,
"We
have
decided
to
cut
two
of
our
three
meals
a
day
to
just
one."

That's
just
a
brief
comment
 on
our
studies. Be
sure
and
be
aware
that
"Walk
With
Wholeness"
will
 be
held
in
Clay
Center
UMC
on
 Sat.,
Sept
15,
from
8:00
to
3:00.
 
 Registration

needs

I
have
heard
Billie
Blaire,
Director
of
Tallgrass
Spiritual
Retreat
Center
and
 she
is 
amazing.


Rudo
Dozva,
Zimbabwe,
will
speak
too.


This
is
the
KS
West
UMW
Conf.
and
it
probably
will
not
be
this
close
 again
for
years
with
all
the
mergers
in
our
denomination. Mark
your
 calendar
 for
October
13,
 when
 we
go
to
Washington
for
the
Salina
District
annual
UMW
meeting.
 
These
are
 always
very
inspirational
and
a
chance
to
meet
old
friends
and
new
ones.

I
hope
to
be
taking
Crystal
Young
with
me
to
this
 so
she
can
help
present
the
report
on
METour. October
5,
9:30

will
be
Republic

In
our
UMW

books
it
says 
we
will
have

like
it
originally
should
have

Please
note
some

Be
aware
that
we
will
be
installing
our

2013
at
that

too.

Is
there
anyone
who
would
like
to
step
up
and
take
 
 
 
 

























an
office
that
you
do
not
presently
hold?

Most
of
us
who
have
held
these
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
offices
 for
 years
would
 gladly
 step
 down
