Human Relations Sunday
"Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute." Proverbs 31:8, NRSV
As United Methodists, our Social Discipline invites and encourages us to step out of our comfort zones and take care of the world we live in, just as Jesus cared for it. We join our fellow United Methodists this Sunday to support the church's mission work of tending to the needs of the total person with our financial contributions.
As you consider your support this year, take a look at this brief video featuring some of the impactful work
connecting with the human spirit of those in need.
Lunch and a Movie -

BYOBB (Bring-your-own-brown-bag) lunch and join the Disability Connection Team for Lunch and a Movie this Sunday, January 14th, at 12:00 noon in the Fireside Room. Our movie will be "Temple Grandin", the award winning story of the real Temple Grandin, PhD, based on her own writings. The movie features the life of Temple, an amazing and unique autistic woman. We'll learn more about the autism spectrum, what it is, and how it can affect people, from one who lives with autism every day.
Watching this movie together should be an interesting, entertaining, and thought-provoking. Wendy Marsh, autism author, will be available to answer questions and lead a discussion after the movie.
