PASTOR'S CORNER
Friends,
I hope you all had a safe and restful Labor Day weekend. I have been praying for our community and for each of us. Don't forget to join us in the parking lot this Sunday at 9am as we continue our series A New Normal?  We will be reading and studying Daniel 1:6-17.

If you haven't signed up for our Bible Study on the Lawn, register at the link below under "Gospel Discipleship." We will take the next 5 weeks to look at what our "discipleship type" is and how we can serve and use our gifts. I'm excited to dive into this study!

Don't forget to come and check out our Outside Sale on Sept. 19 from 8am-2pm. Even though we weren't able to do the full UMW Yard Sale indoors this fall, we have some awesome larger items for you to come and see! The Elm Springs United Methodist Women have worked hard to adapt and make this happen, and we are grateful!

We have our annual Charge Conference meeting this Sunday afternoon via Zoom at 5pm with District Superintendent Stephen Coburn. If you are interested in attending, please email office@elmsprings.church and a link will be sent for you to join. 

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jennie

BIBLE STUDY ON THE LAWN
Starting this Sunday at 6pm

Pastor Jennie will be leading an outdoor small group study starting this Sunday, 9/13. The study is called Gospel Discipleship, and is based on a book written by one of our Arkansas pastors, Dr. Michelle Morris. Dr. Morris has taken a deep dive into the discipleship styles of our four gospel writers: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This study will help us identify our congregational "type" and our personal/individual styles of discipleship. Child care is available.

Hello Church Family!
We have so many yard sale donations that the storage container is full-to-burstin’! To help make more room, Elm Springs United Methodist Women will host a ONE DAY OUTSIDE SALE on Saturday, September 19, from 8 until 2. We will be selling “the big stuff” that is taking up so much room in the container – and maybe some small stuff too. You never know!  We would deeply appreciate some help in pulling items from the container. We will store the big stuff temporarily in the Fellowship Hall, and set them up outside on Friday, Sept. 18 and early Saturday, Sept. 19. Weather permitting. Please call Mary Zimmerman at 479-601-1398 or email mary.zimmerman58@outlook.com for more information and to volunteer! Bless y’all!
