Thought for your meditation
“I imagine: a church where all disciples have opportunities to experience and grow in God's love, and to serve in as many ways as they are led; a church that works for peace and justice for all of God's creation; a vibrant, enthusiastic church for the glory of God.”
Wendy Kipp

Small Group Study

Tuesday November 27
10:30 am & 6:30 PM

All are welcome.

“Living Faithfully: Human Sexuality and the United Methodist Church” – Three Week Study November 13-27. We will continue to meet on Tuesdays at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm for November. See Pastor Pat to get a copy of the book ($12.00 each).

"There is a lot of concern about where the United Methodist Church stands when it comes to homosexuality, same-gender marriage, and the ordination of LGBTQ persons, and what will result from the upcoming General Conference in February. Living Faithfully, a small-group study was created especially for United Methodists, to guide discussions in a way that encourages openness, humility, a spirit of grace, and above all, love for fellow United Methodists who may disagree with you. Offering multiple lenses through which to consider different perspectives, the study is based on Scripture from start to finish."

Stewardship Moment
Special thanks to everyone who completed a pledge card last Sunday in support of the Weston United Methodist Church. Your generosity of your time, talents, prayers and resources will enable WUMC to continue to know Jesus Christ and to make Jesus Christ known.

Pledge forms are available for download on the church website

Advent Bible Study 
Tuesday December 3 
10:30 am & 6:30 PM 
All are welcome. 

Plan to take part in the Advent Bible Study, Adam Hamilton’s The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem – Mondays 6:30pm (includes dinner), and Tuesdays 10:30am, beginning December 3.

Journeying from Nazareth to Bethlehem, Adam Hamilton uses historical information, archaeological data, and a personal look at some of the stories surrounding the birth of Jesus.

“This book may be the greatest Christmas present of the year. Adam thoughtfully, movingly walks us through what really happened when God touched this planet. The richness of the full story will touch your life as well.” John Ortberg

Blankets for the Homeless in Waltham 
At our last Monday serving night, I was approached by one of the Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen workers helping with the 5 PM dinner we provided. She said there are several who sleep outside who need a blanket.

Please bring clean, new or lightly used blankets to church to be distributed to those in need.
Thank you, Debbi Miller 

Church Safety 
Members of the Trustees, Church Council and the Outreach Committee recently had a general information session with the Weston Police Department. Weston’s Chief of Police Mike Goulden, Detective Sergeant Jeffrey Beohner, and School Resource Officer Kellie Connarton fielded questions and concerns regarding local crime, safe building evacuation and community outreach. The officers also provided information on ways for Weston United Methodist Church to be helpful in the community.

Officer Connarton will meet again with the Trustees to evaluate building security, exterior lighting and measures to be taken in an emergency. CPR training will likely be offered to those interest in congregation in the future.
