Men’s Fellowship Breakfast

Saturday, October 7

7:00-9:00 AM Overholt Hall

From Desire to Restoration: The Path to Abundant Life

¨ In John 10:10b KJV, Jesus offers the “abundant life” and encourages us to join Him.   In more modern versions the translation suggests that the “abundant life” is a life led to the full.

¨ Many, if not most of our days do not feel abundant or full, but rather confusing, difficult, and from time to time, even hopeless. “We are never living, but hoping to live.” Blaise Pascal, Religious Philosopher

¨ Yet despite hardship, suffering and broken dreams, there is something in the heart of every man that says the full and abundant life is out there somewhere. “And I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.” Irish Rock Band U2/Bono

¨ That “somewhere” is God and the hope that springs eternal within us is God’s sacred romance. We experience this romance in the form of desire, a desire that restores faith, trust and hope in the life Jesus offered 2000 years ago and promises even today.

 Worship and Hunger Relief Event

 

Because October is Hunger Awareness Month, on Sunday, October 29th, we will be worshipping while we work to alleviate hunger.  That Sunday morning our whole church will fulfill the two-hour shift needed at the Feed My Starving Children event at Delaware Valley University in the Student Center. Parking is at the Science Center, and signs will be posted.   We will hold one worship service at 8:15 here at the church, but the rest of the worship services and activities for the morning will be cancelled.  There will be no 9:30, 11:00, or 11:11 worship services.  There will be no Sunday School either.  All children, youth, and adults are encouraged to participate in this event.

There will be childcare for those 5 and under.  If you don’t think you can handle the whole two-hour shift or you won’t be able to come until part way through the shift, come any way.  We will do a “tag team” approach during the shift.

We will hold a short informal worship time at 9:15 at DelVal, go through an orientation at 9:45, then we will begin our work at 10:00 am.   The shift ends at noon.  We will need at least 340 volunteers.  Sign up sheets are available in the lobby of the church. You can also sign up online: Go to https://onrealm.org/doylestownumc and Click Community > Events to view a list of registration events.

If you have questions, please contact Kevin McPoyle at 215 802-0595 or kmmcpoyle@gmail.com.
