A word from the Pastor

Dear Zion
 
    Wow, 2018 is just zooming along.  I can't believe its almost May - Aldersgate month.  As Methodists we particularly remember this special moment in the life of our founder, The Rev. John Wesley.

Our UMC.org website says:  Aldersgate Day is celebrated on May 24 (or the Sunday closest) to commemorate the day in 1738 when John Wesley experienced assurance of his salvation.  Wesley reluctantly attended a group meeting that evening on Aldersgate Street in London.  As he heard a reading from Luther's Preface to the Epistle to the Romans, he felt his "heart strangely warmed."   Wesley wrote in his journal that at about 8:45 p.m. "while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death."

Charles Wesley only a few days before had also had a conversion experience in the same place. The building where the meetings took place no longer exists. Aldersgate Street has been shortened by common Methodist usage to simply Aldersgate. The word has come to represent both the place and the experience.

Please join us in worship in the month of May when we will remember our Methodist heritage as we have a four week sermon series on "What is the quadrilateral?"  This is a particularly Methodist way of discernment taken from the works of John Wesley by 20th century Methodist scholar Dr. Albert Outler. 

As I write this it is April 24, 2018.  In two months I will have my last Sunday worship with you on June 10th and then I will be preparing to attend annual conference.  And after that I will have a few days to say my goodbyes as we pack up our household and  I will be on my way to the new ministry that God has called me too at the end of June.
 
Let us have a wonderful few months together as we prepare to say goodbye at the end of June.  I know God has some great things in store for all of us. 

With Love and Prayers, Pastor Kim

                                              Food Pantry Reports
 
     The food pantry continues to be a success, both in meeting the needs of hungry neighbors and in demonstrating what we can do when volunteers band together (there have been several volunteers each month lately--new and experienced, male and female, of all backgrounds)!  We are anxious to set up storage so the Sunday school rooms can return to their original purpose and we are tossing around ideas like offering cooking-on-a-budget workshops and sponsoring a garden at the Rappahannock detention facility with/for the young men who do the heavy lifting and cleaning for our pantry each month. If you are interested in being a part of the Zion Emergency Food Pantry or in helping with any of these possible programs, please see Todd Martinsen or call 540-388-8520.
    As always we are looking for volunteers to assist with the community garden. The garden has rested this Spring but we will soon plant summer vegetables and we are opening up beds for those in our church family or local community to use personally at no charge (with the agreement that a small portion of the food they produce be donated to the food pantry each month).  If you know
anyone in a living situation that doesn't allow for a garden but they would like to grow one, please let them know this opportunity exists.  For any garden donations, help or free use of a garden plot, please see Laura Martinsen or call 540-388-8521. Thank you for your continued support of and interest in Zion's hunger ministries.

Missional Wisdom Foundation   


Pastor Kim has been taking on line classes for the Missional Wisdom Foundation for the past year.  This was funded by the Virginia UM Conference.  She went to their first National Conference as the newsletter was being finalized April 17-21. 

     The Missional Wisdom Foundation experiments with and teaches about alternative forms of Christian community.

     Here is a description from their website:  The Missional Wisdom Foundation (MWF) is an independent 501.c3 organization that stands at the fulcrum between spiritual tradition and innovation. The MWF is centered in a life of contemplation and lived out within a community of experimentation and education. To be missional is to be sent out, and to have wisdom is to have experience rooted in struggle. The MWF is sent out with neighbors to neighborhoods, to seminaries, to churches, and to whomever you are sent out to. Wisdom comes from the collected experience of community, shared and shaped by an ethos of love, safety, and acceptance.
     Through thoughtful intentionality and a willingness to learn through trying, the MWF provides space, resources, and support to those seeking ways to explore new paradigms for the deep work of developing spiritual community.

SCHOOL DRESSING DAYS
Aug. 10th & 11th, 2018

Zion will again participate in the School Dressing Days, sponsored by the Interfaith Council, on Friday and Saturday, August 10th & 11TH at the LDS Church at 1710 Bragg Road, Fredericksburg, VA.
  We will  have a kick-off for this project  on Sunday, July 8th,  by having a SOCKS & “UNDIESUNDAY.  You are asked to bring underwear and/or socks for school- aged children, kindergarten through 12th grade.
Suggestions:  
   Boys & Men-Boxers or Boxer Briefs.  Colored Briefs okay for Small Boys.  Older boys prefer boxers - no “tidie- whities”please.!
Girl & Jrs.(Medium & Large Sizes)Bikini and Hipster Underwear           
  Women’s Socks(NO-SHOW or Multicolored )      
Boys & Men’s Socks-All styles                                                                                                                                                                                                       
   We have had a wonderful response from members since we have been doing this mission, and I hope we can continue our effort this year. I will not know  what Zion will be  asked specifically to donate until the April Interfaith meeting, but we always need backpacks. 
     Beginning SUNDAY, July 8th, there will be a container in the front of the sanctuary in which you may place your donations
    
  ALL DONATIONS NEED TO BE IN BY SUNDAY,  August 5th.

    I will place a sign-up sheet on the back table in the sanctuary several weeks before that date for you to volunteer during the event, if you can.  I already have some people that have indicated they would help.  Even an hour or two would be much appreciated.
   This is a huge outreach project, and reaches many needy children in Spotsylvania, as well as, Stafford, Caroline, King George Counties, and the City of Fredericksburg.
     Be sure to watch for updates in the bulletin as we get closer to the July 8th date.
 
There will be a Charity Steak Dinner at Harry’s Ale House on Monday, May 7th.   All Day

This is a fundraiser for School Dressing Days.  The location is 5737 Plank Road (Harrison Road Shopping Center).   The cost of the dinner is $7.99 which includes steak, mashed potatoes, and vegetable. Be sure you ask for the “Charity Steak Dinner”.  We will receive $2.00 for each steak dinner ordered.  Last year we raised $400.00, and Zion supported this endeavor enthusiastically.  It was an opportunity to gather and have a fun evening, and the women didn’t have to cook!  I will have the information in the bulletin 2 weeks before the event with a signup sheet for those interested in going so I can make a reservation. 
Thank you for your support.
Carol Rawls,  SDD Coordinator
 
Thurman Brisben Center Remembered
 
     On April 22rd the Zion UMW will hosted a “Shower for the Shelter” to benefit the Thurman Brisben Center.  Following 11 am worship we had  a Pot Luck Luncheon and time of fellowship.  At that time items were collected for delivery to the Center. The Thurman Brisben Center is a full service residential emergency homeless shelter serving the area.  The Center offers homeless individuals and families an onsite safe and structured program to help them achieve and maintain self-sufficiency and independence
 
For further information contact Vivien Richardson or Dianne Williams.
 
 
NURTURE/EDUCATION MINISTRIES AREA
 
Sunday School
 
     The Adult Bible Study for May focuses on giving praise to God. The four lessons in this unit from Exodus, Leviticus, and 2 Corinthians, emphasize the people's response by bringing offerings and dedicating their lives to God's work. The unit concludes with one session drawn from Psalms and Hebrews that rejoices in God's reconciling actions on behalf of the people.
     The lessons for June focus on justice as presented in the New Testament.  The four lessons remind us that God is just and merciful and that human interpretations of the Law must not conflict with mercy and justice as acted out in our daily lives. The lessons from Matthew look at conflicts between Jesus and the Pharisees on questions of mercy and justice. The lesson from Luke looks at how God dispenses justice and mercy.
     No Sunday School in July.
 
 Maxine Hulon
Sunday School Superintendent
 
 
Elementary Sunday School
 
            Thank you to Laura Martinsen for teaching our elementary children and sharing the faith with the next generation.  It is so vital that our children learn their Bible stories now so that they may rely on their power and their God their whole lives long.  Sunday School for them will run until the end of school.  Please bring your grandchildren or neighbors children.  She can always use an extra hand and can use several people to be substitutes when she is away.  Contact Laura if you can help.
 
Zion Care Meals
2018
 
     The Care Meal Team is active again.
     We have some new members this year, as well as members who have served for many years, and all are members of “the best cooks in Spotsylvania County”.
     New members are Peggy Bell, Sue Rauch, and Karen Robison.
     The rest of the team include Arlene Crislip, Donna Lloyd, Margaret Rumuly, Nancy Hicks, Lisa Hockman, Sue Chamberlin, and Dianne Williams.  Carol Rawls is the coordinator.
     Thank you to all who have volunteered to help those who are sick and could use a nourishing meal.
As you can see, we have a number of members this year, so no one will need to cook for each meal. If someone else would like to join us, we would love to have you, and it doesn’t have to be just women!
     If you know of someone in the congregation who is sick, in the hospital, or you feel is in need of a meal, please let Pastor Kim or Carol know.

 *************

A Book recommendation:
  
   Tired of the conflict and vitriol of our world?  Want to get to know how to be with people who don't believe the same thing as you and remain friends.  The book "The Anatomy of Peace" by the Arbinger Institute is one of the books recommended by "The Commission on the Way Forward"  of the UMC.
     The Amazon description says:  “What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause?
     What if we systematically misunderstand that cause?
     And what if, as a result, we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?  Every day.
     From the authors of ‘Leadership and Self-Deception’ comes an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and global conflicts, even when war is upon us.

     I have read the book twice and highly recommend it.
Grace and peace, Pastor Kim

WORSHIP MINISTRY AREA
 
Mid-Week Prayer Service Continues
     Each Wednesday at 11:30am, Pastor Kim conducts a mid-week prayer service at El Patron.   We read and talk about the scripture for Sunday, then pray.  All are welcome.
 
And don’t forget….
Every Sunday we have an early morning prayer service at 8:45 am.  If you have events planned for later in the day and need to get an early start we are here to give you a half hour of worship and prayer before you head out.
 
THANK YOU FOR EASTER SUNRISE
    Sunrise service at the Pavilion at Merchant's Square in Spotsylvania Courthouse occurred in its usual gloriousness at 6:30am on April 1, Easter Sunday.  About 15 volunteers made this event possible, along with Vakos Property Management. Thank you so much to Sam and Walter who worked not only that morning but the day before also to provide tables and seating for the service.  About 73 people came out (many of those were not members of Zion) and several stayed after to enjoy a light breakfast set up right there adjoining the area where the service had taken place. Thank you to Todd, Arlene and Bill for overseeing the refreshments. The weather was cool but dry and despite some cloudiness there was a pinkish glow from the east, a thoughtful sermon and eager listeners -that morning it was definitely easy to see how much we are blessed by God! He is risen! Hallelujah!
 
 
THANK YOU
 
To Zion UMW:
Thank you for your thoughtfulness, hospitality and fellowship at the luncheon on May 5th for family, friends and me.  The kindness and good food brought the day to a pleasant closure.
Thanks,
Linda Struebing
 
FINANCE
 
Stewardship, a word from UMC.org website:
     Generosity is a matter of action, intentions, and heart. One way to describe it is the grateful outpouring of gifts to others, out of our love for God. Outpouring is a terrific description, since the priceless treasure of the gospel (and all the gifts of covenant, relationship, and life that go with it) comes from God and is meant to be poured out, through our living, upon others. Paul states this directly in 2 Corinthians 4:5-7, when he says, "We have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us."
     Whether for fancy purposes or everyday usage, the "unadorned pots of our daily lives" (as The Message puts it) highlight the fact that all of who we are and what we have comes from God and is to be used for God's purposes. God can use our uniqueness, even our limitations, weaknesses and eccentricities, to communicate God's powerful presence and love.
     Generous living is not just about giving money, or even just about giving. It has to do with the whole of who we are and how we care for our neighbors (see Mark 12:28-31). Each of us brings our heart, mind, soul, and strength. The Old Testament word for "heart" is literally the leaning or thrust of our lives. We might call it our lifestyle or nonverbal witness. In other words, it is how we steward 100 percent of our lives, not just the "religious" sector or the percentage we give away.
     So how do we lead stewardship in our local church? By nurturing generous living in our personal lives and in our life together as part of our congregation and Christ's interconnected, connectional church.

A Message from SPR
(Staff Pastor Relations)
 
     I am excited to say we had a great meeting with the district superintendent.  We are beginning a transition for Zion.  During this time he has asked us to pray for our Pastor and her family, pray for our future pastor, and pray for the cabinet as they make their decisions and Zion church family.
     The district has decided the best choice for Zion will be a 3/4 time pastor.  One of the benefits is this will ease up our finances.  Three quarter simply means the pastor will work 30 hours a week instead of 40, some of you may not even notice the difference.
    If you have questions please feel free to talk with any of the SPR members:  Betty Carter-Gelfuso (chair), Walter Rawls (co-chair), Tim Alger, Terry Blalock, Dennis Gallahan, Glenda Payne, Sue Rauch, Maynard Rumuly and Dianne Williams.
     Thank you for your prayers and support.
Respectfully,
Betty Carter-Gelfuso, SPR Chair
