SERMON SERIES CONCLUDES THIS SUNDAY, JULY 22!
WORSHIP: OUR DEEPEST LONGING
 Why do we worship? What do we expect will happen? Multitudes of people gather every week on every part of the planet in their homes, under straw canopies, within marble basilicas to seek and find God. Around the world faithful followers and longing searchers gather to satisfy their deepest need – a connection with the divine, something sacred and holy. What does worship mean for us? What does it mean for God? Together let’s discover something new in this ancient tradition that may lead us to a deeper experience of God in worship.

ATTENTION FOOTBALL FANS!!
The Wayne Men’s Group is excited to announce the first annual Wayne Church Fantasy Football League! We're asking the football fans in our congregation to indicate their interest in participating in the league this season. Once we have an idea of how many players we will have, the group will move forward with setting up the league online. 
 
The NFL regular season begins on September 6, so we are aiming to have a live draft at the church the week before. We are also planning to have an end-of-season tailgate get together to celebrate the season and hand out plenty of awards! For the main prize to the league's champion, we are asking each player to donate $10, and the winner will choose a charity to which to donate the pot. 
 
To let us know that you are interested, please e-mail waynechurchff@gmail.com by no later than July 29 th so that we can get a count of how many players we will have. More details will follow as we get in to August. 
 
Thanks,
John Sedunov

PONDERING THE PARABLES BIBLE STUDY CONTINUES AUGUST 2!
REFLECTING ON JESUS’ STORIES ON FAITH

As the temps soar and our schedules slow, it's a great   time to gather and draw closer to the Lord through studying His Word.   Please join Virginia Gardiner on   alternating Thursday evenings from 7-8:30   to study some of Jesus' foundational parables.   Dates for the study are   August 2, 16, and 30 .     Come to one or as many as you can, and enjoy growing your faith among friends.   We'll gather at Virginia's house in Wayne (Please check the directory for the address.), and weather permitting, will hang out on the deck, so wear your shorts and tees!  
GENTLE VINYASA FLOW YOGA!
 We have one more Thursday evening, July 26, at 6:30pm in Fellowship Hall, (lower level) before we break from the summer. All are welcome to come and be guided through 60 minutes of gentle vinyasa flow followed by a short meditation in relaxing poses. This is a great class for people looking for a more gentle experience, new to yoga, or for those with injuries or limitations, for ages 18 and up. Please bring your own mat, if possible. Donation is $5 per class, plus a food item for the food pantry. All proceeds go to the Wayne Church Food Pantry.
LADIES' SAVE THE DATE FOR THE FALL RETREAT!!
 Saturday, October 20 through Sunday, October 21 - This is always a special time for all who come. It will be held at the Mariawald Retreat Center in Berks County. More details to come.
LADIES’ NEXT BOOK SELECTION!
 All ladies of the church are invited to include The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver as part of their summer reading. We will get together in late August to discuss. 
W I T N E S S
To the Leadership Council and the entire congregation, my deepest thanks for the generous gift I received on June 24, my last Sunday of service as the appointed deacon to this church. Thanks also to the many people who thanked me for the time we had together and wished us well on the next chapter of service to Christ and His church. We do not know the details of what lies ahead of us, but we know in whose hands our paths of love and service are held. Best wishes and blessings to everyone as you continue to love and serve through Christ, whose life, death, and new life still radiate hope and consolation for those who seek a place where their highest hopes and dreams for this life and the life to come are welcomed, encouraged, and sustained. God bless Wayne Church now and forever.

Yours in Christ,  Reverend Ben Caldwell, Deacon

WORSHIP THROUGH SERVICE IS SUNDAY, JULY 29!
Join us for Worship through Service on Sunday, July 29! We will begin at 9:15 AM in Fellowship Hall with prayer and then begin assembly. We will be assembling Flood and Hygiene Kits to be sent to UMCOR’s Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, Louisiana. These kits will then be packaged with other critical relief supplies before being shipped overseas. Relief-supply kits help provide care for the most vulnerable people during times of crisis. UMCOR collects 3 types of kits for global distribution in 80 different countries around the world. These kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies. They provide vital support for UMCOR’s global development work and make a tangible difference in people’s lives.
 
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16

2018 LAITY ACADEMY - AUGUST 3-5 AT QUAKERTOWN UMC
REGISTRATION EXTENDED TO JULY 29!
The 35 th Laity Academy’s theme is ‘Pass It On – Spreading God’s Word Through Action!’ As members of Christ’s Church we all have a role to play – no matter how small or large. Paul says it very directly in Corinthians 12 where he tells us that every part of the body of Christ has a role and that the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.”
