Live well, laugh often, love much!

Pastor's Message

 We have been “created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us
to do” (Ephesians 2:10).  Together we'll learn how God not only prepares the work we are to do,
but prepares and equips us, his stewards, to do that work.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: 

Fall is an exciting time! Bring your pet to the Blessing of the Pets on Sunday, Oct. 15 at 1:00 pm.
Meet and Greet the Bishop on Oct. 19 (see me for more info). A fresh new Advent Study will
begin soon. Bring your children and your grandchildren to worship. The Fall Fair is coming up on
November 10 and 11. Remember that WE are the church. The success of all our events relies on
each and every one of you. 

You all took a vow when you became a member of AWUMC. (If you are not a member—see
me!!!). It was: “As a member of this congregation of Acushnet-Wesley United Methodist Church I
will faithfully participate in its ministries by my prayers, my presence, my gifts, my service and my
witness.” There are many opportunities in our congregation to faithfully participate with your
prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness. 

The Fall Fair offers many short-term service opportunities. Sign up or call. Jack and Donna
Santos have stepped up to chair the Fair this year. We need nice items for the Silent Auction. We
need helpers and cooks in the kitchen. We need bakers and candy makers. As the year
progresses the WAMS will be putting on dinners rather than yard sales and rummage sales. They
can use your help in the kitchen when the time comes. They also welcome new members!

Come to worship. Sing in the Gospel Choir or the AWUMC Choir even if it is only for the holiday
season. AWUMC is a welcoming, friendly church family who faithfully welcomes new people. Be a
‘Doer’ of the Word and not just a voice in the background.

In Christ’s Name,
Pastor Kathy Macedo
