*Call to Worship Bill George
Leader: We have come this day to learn about what God expects of us.
People: Sometimes we really dont want to know what God wants. We are
afraid to make the commitments God seeks.
Leader: God is persistent. God will not let us off the hook so easily.
People: But we have failed so many times in the past. How can we possibly
serve now?
Leader: Open your hearts to receive forgiveness and healing. Listen to God. Be ready
to work with God for hope, peace, justice and love.
People: Be with us, Lord. Help us to turn around, to see you, to serve you, to
witness to your Love.
*Opening Hymn 698 God of the Ages NATIONAL HYMN
*Opening Prayer
Open our eyes, our ears, our hearts and spirits this morning, Lord, that we may be healed of

to peace and service to you. In Jesus Name, we pray. Amen.

VBS at AUMC 2014
Wow! What a week we had in mid-June! Our team of leaders would love to thank each and
every person who volunteered, prayed for us, donated items and/or made monetary
donations. We appreciate all you did and the joy on the children and parents faces each night
as they spent time learning about how much Jesus loved each of them while singing, dancing,
doing crafts, playing games, and more shows how much your prayers and actions meant to
them! We're especially proud of the children and volunteers who donated almost $180 to
purchase 1 and a half goats through Heifer International. The passion they had for wanting to
help others in this was a breath of fresh air and a brilliant way to start our summer! Let's
continue praying for each person who participated in Vacation Bible School this summer,
especially the wonderful children. So... who's ready for VBS 2015?!?

PARKING LOT CAMPAIGN

Aldersgate has received a very generous anonymous matching donation of $25,000 to be used
specifically for the badly needed paving of our parking lot. Trustees are investigating options
from several local contractors and considering bids from each company. Of course, the more
money raised, the more can be accomplished. We are confident that our Aldersgate
community will be able to fully match this donation, to achieve a goal of $50,000. This money
would provide paving from Rio Road (office entrance), down the side of the building, the back
of the church lot, and ending at Mallside Road. The three trees in the center of the parking lot
near the shed would also be removed to add more parking spaces. Paving of the grass parking
area is not included in the bids. However, if our goal of $50,000 is exceeded, this area could
also be considered for paving.

Please prayerfully consider how you may contribute to our parking lot campaign. Aldersgate
opens its doors weekly for use to many non-profit organizations, district church meetings, and
to the thousands who pass through our doors during our Consignment sales. The most
frequent negative comment we hear from potential new members and people using our church
facility is the parking lot. It is past time to make the outside of our church building as attractive
as our inside to those who enter our doors. I challenge each of you to be a generous and
cheerful giver as we move forward in this new initiative for our church. Please make your
checks payable to Aldersgate United Methodist with parking lot campaign in the memo line.
God Bless each of you and our church.
