    One great potluck after worship deserves an- other! We had plenty of delicious food for over 30 guests from Renewal Ranch as well as our congrega- tion on July 14. On August 18 we will have another potluck, but this time we will only have one guest, Janet Marshall, from the United Methodist Founda- tion of Arkansas (UMFA). That day will also be a cele- bration of our church’s heritage and future. According to a brochure, “The UMFA is a non- profit organization that serves Arkansas United Meth- odist Churches, institutions and people. We offer the practical means for linking today’s hopes to to- morrow’s dreams. Our focus is fostering stewardship that not only strengthens and supports existing min- istry, but dares to dream for the future.” UMFA as- sists individuals with estate planning, serving as Trustee of life-income gift arrangements, revocable trusts and permanent charitable funds, and also providing counsel on giving alternatives. The Foun- dation serves churches by managing investment funds, creating permanent endowment funds, and giving loans for construction projects. It also pro- vides scholarships for seminary students who will be- come pastors in Arkansas, and for persons to attend leadership development events (some of our members have received these scholarships). Janet Marshall will make a presentation at the potluck on how the UMFA can benefit our church and its members. Join us for this special day in the life of our church. Pastor Steve

    Breakthrough Prayer Initiative– August

    “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…(Ephesians 3:20).” Do we really believe the above verse? How often do we audaciously ask God to act in super- natural ways? This verse says that God is able to do more than we can imagine that he can do. And, I can imagine amazing things. But sometimes we don’t ask God to do that which is impossible (at least for mere humans). For most of us, we have at least one request that we have presented to God over a long period of time, but it has not been answered, or at least not yet. But sometimes, we don’t ask God about powerfully acting on behalf of ourselves or the church because we don’t really believe God can or will act. It is certainly true that God will never be badgered or tricked into an- swering a prayer that is not consistent with his will or purpose, nor will he answer a prayer that will not bring glory to his Name or Kingdom. But, let’s pray boldly this month. The prayer challenge this month is to offer a bold prayer to God that can only be answered if the God of the uni- verse acts. Are you or a family member enslaved to an addiction or habit? Do you or someone you love have a life-threatening health condition? Are you hoping and wait
