Church Services 9:00 am - Sanctuary Traditional Service
10:15 am - Fellowship Hall Contemporary Service
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Jill Sander-Chali Rev. Elizabeth Evans
We started a new sermon series on Sunday, September 29, called “Sacred Worth.” During this series, we are re-affirming our identity as a reconciling congregation that is committed to being in ministry with persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities. This series affirms that all are made in the image of God. The final Sunday, October 13, we welcome guest preacher Rev. Elizabeth Evans who will bring us a message about our sacred worth in connection with National Coming Out Day celebrated on October 11. In addition, that afternoon at 4:00 pm, we are hosting a worship gathering in collaboration with several Wichita area churches focused around National Coming Out Day, acknowledging coming out as both a space of celebration and a space of lament. Rev. Elizabeth Evans will again be our guest preacher. We’ll follow that with a party in the fellowship hall… cupcakes, tie-dye t-shirts, rock painting, GLSEN, and Camp Sunflower!
Wednesday’s Light Suppers 5:30 - 6:00 pm in the Parlor

The Prayer List includes those in the hospital, rehab, hospice, military personnel, and those with current and continuing health concerns. Each Sunday morning we will prepare a greeting card for 2-3 on our list.

Serve on a Church Committee Do you know someone with gifts for leadership in the church? We’re currently seeking applicants and nominations to serve on our various leadership teams next year. We are looking for leaders who take their commitment seriously to show up and be part of the work and leaders who can serve CHUM with joy. After you express your interest or share with us the name of someone who you think would do a great job, the Committee on Nominations and Lay Leadership (Nominations Team) prayerfully considers the needs of each team, their role in the church, and who might be the best fit for this year. The Nominations Team then personally invites individuals to accept an invitation to serve. Following their acceptance of the nomination, that slate is voted upon for election at our annual Church Conference meeting in November. Terms may be for 1-3 years and begin January 1, 2020. Email Pastor Jill if you are interested in serving or if you would like to nominate someone else to serve at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Blessing of the Animals Sunday, October 20
During both services Bring your pet to either service
to be blessed!
AGAPE, Rm. 201 - Welcome back, Suzanne! In class we learned that Orthodoxy means "right belief" and that right belief was determined by whomever won the various theological debates, thus Rome defined the Christian Orthodoxy. Happy anniversary this week to the Petty's and they bring treats next week. Congratulations to Andrew Wiebe as he is getting married this week.
BUILDERS, Rm. 305 - We served treats in the Parlor for Meet and Greet. See you all back in class Sunday. Keep in your prayers: Charlie M., Nori, Mark McKee, and Bob & Mary Schmidt.
CHILDREN, Children’s Center - This past Sunday was Bible Presentation Sunday, there were a total of 15 bibles handed out this year! During the month of October, all children in grades 3-5 are encouraged to bring their Bibles to class as they learn the different books and how to use them. During the month of October, the children’s offering is going to support Socktober. The kids are joining the Vaughn’s family tradition of a sock drive every October to support a local homeless shelter. This year we invite all of CHUM to bring in socks, gloves and chapstick for this mission.

DOUBLE CIRCLE, Rm. B4 - Moe opened class with 11 present. Dr. Brake’s lesson was on Joshua 7. God is a Holy God. This story helps us understand our place in the world and God’s intention for us.
