The Moscow United Methodist Church 126 Church St Office Phone: (570)842-7251 Moscow, PA 18444 e-newsletter September 2021 Pastor’s Letter And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:16-19 As we all know, our nation and the world we live in seem to be in a state of turmoil. There are more and more weather related tragedies. The COVID-19 Pandemic continues to affect people’s lives in various sick, sad manners with hundreds of thousands of fatalities. Also, many violent, senseless choices are being made and acted upon daily. It can be hard to watch the news. This week we come upon the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that stunned and shook all of us as Americans, leaving the physical locations of New York City, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, sites that are forever different than they were before that day in 2001. It was a day each of us most likely remembers exactly where we were and what we were doing as the news unfolded. It was a surreal, unbelievable event. One that will never be forgotten. We see and read about chaos and fear in the midst of and immediately following all these true stories. Yet, we also see and read about

the selfless, sacrificial, courageous behavior of those reaching out to help one another through and pick up the pieces. Then there often come scenes of gatherings to pray, engage in moments of silence, join in the singing of Amazing Grace, listen to God’s Word, be in devotion, share personal feelings and experiences, and shed tears of brokenness together in the atmosphere of the unknown confusion, questioning, why. During these gatherings, much is happening. The mood may be somber, but the healing dynamic is powerful, compelling people to overcome evil with good as they step forward into an unknown future with the knowledge they are not alone. The time spent in these post traumatic assemblies produce strength, bonding determination for harmony, and cultivate hope in the framework of faith. When it seems like all is lost, faith in God prevails for in an ever changing world, God is unchanging, our rock and refuge of mercy and redemption. We are also witnessing God moving, bringing order when chaos occurs as persons put their differences and individual distinct beliefs and living aside to live in the unifying truth of love which weaves all of humanity together for all persons are children of God. Prayers that more of this unity increases. The Lord will see us through, while we support one another, near and far, in any way we are able, relying on and ever confident in God’s transforming love. We are brothers and sisters in Christ, living examples of our Savior moving through every day revealing this generous love, merciful grace, and divine, peaceful will of God. Despite the choices desperate or misguided people make, where there may be strife, hurt, or anxiety, we are called to extend unconditional, nonjudgmental communication to everyone. We may never realize that our smiles, positive words, or acts of kindness may stir the Holy Spirit to lead persons who walk in dark places to turn to the light of the Son. One thing is for certain. We can never allow fear to confine us or be a barrier to enjoying the lives God blesses us with to the fullest. The Bible instructs that God is love, that love resides within each of us motivating us to discipleship. There is no fear in love. Jesus gave his last breath to abolish fear

from being a deciding factor as we live out our purpose. The words written in a good old hymn remind us “because he lives I can face tomorrow, because he lives all fear is gone, because I know he holds the future and life is worth the living just because he lives”. We cannot allow the events of the world to rob us of sharing meaningful love which God provides for us to share in memorable times together. We are to live everyday loud and proud in hopeful faith with peaceful anticipation of the future. We are to consistently show the world our God is an awesome, adoring God by being visual revelations of endless prayer and praise in a society that needs to know secure, divine assurance is abundantly available. May we awake every day giving thanks to our Lord for another opportunity to live in the powerful love that transforms, creates miracles, and inspires all to be better and do better. May the light of courage and encouragement, unity and harmony, promise and prosperity, progress our nation and the world forth to believe in God’s conquering love. Shine your inextinguishable Spirit motivated spark of fearless faith brightly to offer a glimmering glimpse of God’s goodness of creation without scars and blemishes. And, may we strive to empower a righteous revolution of redeeming grace which illumines divine love that all the shadows of doubt and despair shall disappear, as Christ is more recognizable than the ills around us. Be the assuring change that is needed. You are able, for your heart possess the mighty and calm essence of true love. Live in love.

COVID PRECAUTIONS REMINDER - Due to the rise in COVID cases, we have taken steps to secure the wellbeing of all those who enter the church building by reimplementing a few precautionary safety measures. We do so remaining true to the importance of keeping the two greatest commandments as set forth by Jesus, to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves in reference to keeping everyone's safety our priority. Please be aware of the safety precautions below when entering the church facilities - Wearing of masks is strongly encouraged when moving about the sanctuary and the rest of the building. When persons are seated, they may remove their masks. - An usher is dismissing persons by pew at the conclusion of the worship service to ensure proper physical distancing. - There is still a children's message during worship. The children sit in the first pew and Pastor Lori sits by the altar rail. We continue to sanitize the building after each use. Persons are asked to bring their own masks and individual sanitizer. However, there are masks available in the narthex and hand sanitizer can be found throughout the building. We appreciate your patience, faithfulness to remaining aware of personal distancing, and respectful mindfulness of following these precautionary measures, as the fluctuating effects of the pandemic persist. Please pray for all who have been deeply affected by this pandemic in tragic, life altering ways, for those who serve in

emergency care, and society as a whole. These are trying times, yet with steadfast faith and prayer, knowing the Lord is ever near, we shall overcome. THE SUMMER IN REVIEW On Sunday, June 20th, we celebrated our graduates by holding a special Graduation Sunday ceremony during worship service. Two scholarships were given to three of our graduates. The Melba and August Fleckenstein Scholarship was awarded to Natalie Deal and Brooks Hanna. The Moscow UMC Handbell Choir Scholarship was awarded to Sam Kelly. All the graduates were given a small gift from the church by Pastor Lori. We are praying for all of our graduates as they embark on the next stage of their lives. We held a three session Vacation Bible School at the end of July. It has been a number of years since VBS was held at MUMC. VBS far exceed our expectations. The theme was Camp Son Shine “Where little campers learn that they are loved by God and how they can show and tell others God loves them too.” The week was followed by a special VBS Worship Service and fellowship time where Pastor Lori and some of the Camp Son Shine leaders got pied in the face for an excellent cause. An offering, of monetary and specific donations, was collected at the opening each night to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. If the VBS campers made their mission goal of $100, a camper from each age levels would get to “pie” Pastor Lori. Their amazing mission collection (of kid’s helping kids and their families) totaled over $350! What a fun time was had by all from the opening gathering on the first night through the last pie thrown. The campers learned a Bible Story “around the campfire” then rotated

around stations that developed a higher understanding of the biblical concept being presented. They learned to Help One Another (Parable of the Good Samaritan), Forgive One Another (Joseph Forgave His Brothers), Discover Jesus’ Powerful Love and to Show and Tell others About Jesus’ Love too (Account of the Transformation of the Apostle Paul). A big THANK YOU to all who made Camp Son Shine VBS a success for over 30 children. You can see more photos on our Website under the “Missions” tab. The VBS camp opening set was repurposed to create the MUMC float with other colorful decorations for the Moscow Country Street Fair Parade. It was a joy to ride on the float with our faithful parade route walkers, who handed out a goodie bag with church information and a couple surprises, to all the children around town. While we were going down the parade route, we saw kids who had attended VBS that ran alongside the float yelling “Camp Son Shine, Camp Son Shine – we had fun – I want to go back there again”. Signs on the float’s clouds also offered information about worship, Sunday School, the Learning Tree Preschool, and promotions of other church endeavors.

The Moscow Country Street Fair was a busy time all around the community with lots of delightful happenings at the church facilities. The Quilt Show and the Art Show were hosted inside, featuring stunningly beautiful displays. In the lawn, we had MUMC’s famous Welsh Cookie for sale. As usual, they sold out fast, even with our dedicated cookie ladies working hard to make a triple batch. THANK

YOU ladies! The Sunday School sold water and the Learning Tree Preschool had fun games for the families passing by. More than anything, much connection was made with the community and church information shared as we engaged in conversations with people. There was a Blessing of the Backpacks during worship at the end of August to send all the students back to class blessed by God and ready for another year of learning. Each student present received super cool backpack tags from the church. Smile! This backpack is Jesus loves you and blessed by God is with you always to and your church keep you strong and family at the lead you all day Moscow United long. Methodist Church Stay smart with a Pray every day – happy heart in each God will show you class you are sure the way! you pass!

DISTRICT AND CONFERENCE NEWS NEW SCRANTON WILKES-BARRE DISTRICT WEBSITE: Check out and bookmark our NEW Scranton Wilkes-Barre website at: Get the latest news and details from our SWB District. SWB DISTRICT INFORMATION SESSION WITH REV. DR. TOM SALSGIVER -- UMC -- HOW DID WE GET HERE, WHERE ARE WE NOW, AND WHAT MIGHT THE FUTURE HOLD?: Our Scranton/Wilkes-Barre District Laity and Clergy are invited to a ZOOM information session on Saturday, September 11th at 10:00 AM with Assistant to the Bishops, Rev. Dr. Tom Salsgiver. Rev. Salsgiver will give a summary of the most recent information regarding the UMC, General, Jurisdictional and our Annual Conference and will offer an opportunity for questions. Please sign up below and include any specific questions you would like to see addressed during this time: CREATING A CULTURE OF CALL SPRC AND CLERGY TRAINING SEMINAR: SPRC members and clergy are invited to join Rev. Jay Jones and members of the SWB District Committee on Ministry (including Pastor Lori) for a Culture of the Call ZOOM training seminar. The training will help pastors and SPRCs be more aware of their role in identifying, nurturing, and affirming individuals from their congregation who are called to ministry. Three opportunities for training will be offered: Saturday, September 18 at 9:00 AM; Thursday, September 23 at 6:30 PM; or Saturday, October 23 at

9:00 AM. Please sign up for one of the trainings at: Please join in this time of discernment of the call God is placing on your life to make disciples for Jesus Christ and further the Kingdom on Earth. To what type of ministry are you being called? “The local church remains the primary place in which a young person hears and responds to the call of God, and where the call is confirmed.” (Tom Cartwright) Therefore, the need is great to educate, train our local churches to become a place where the call of our people is fostered. The training will focus on those paragraphs in the Book of Discipline which spell out the role of encouraging the call of God’s people. SAFE SANCTUARIES With the return of the school year and some semblance of normalcy, we are starting back to Sunday School, and we are looking to start more youth-oriented programs for our families. If anyone thinks they might be interested in helping with any future programs or events we encourage you to contact Barbara Havenstrite to help you get your clearances and Safe Sanctuary training completed. These programs are all *free* for volunteers and simple to obtain. Getting your clearances will allow you to be more involved with any youth or elderly programs we have. Once you have these clearances you can also turn them in to other volunteer programs you are involved in. If you have had these background checks in the last 5 years you can

turn in a copy of those, but the Safe Sanctuary training must still be completed. It is a virtual training that takes about one hour. FINANCE REPORT Month of August: Income - $7,989.21 / Expenses – $9,652.72 (- 1,663.51) Year-to-Date: Income- $72,356.94 / Expenses- $79,335.41 (- 6,978.47) Ministry Shares Paid Year-to-date: 4 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 These verses from the Book of 2 Corinthians are in the midst of a section of scripture addressing giving to the church. Our financial giving and ministerial giving of service to fulfill God’s purpose are spiritual disciplines that we are called to engage in as acts of obedience in response to ALL we have been freely given through Christ. Without the selfless sacrifice of our Savior, we would be nowhere and have no hope. In believing, we accept and realize we are loved, forgiven, and freed into eternity. We have all we need to live here and hereafter in the joyful promise of the resurrection. As God’s people, our lives overflow with abundant blessings and resources, beyond what we could ever imagine. That provides us then with the ability to convey resurrection blessings and a sense of loving belonging to those who have yet to know love or worth in their lives. In our giving, we extend our gratitude to our Lord and transform people’s lives that are merely existing in the shadows of

survival. God did not create anyone or anything to only exist, but to thrive in thankful, productive living. We are the agents of divine grace to make a difference for those who are suffering, lost, hopeless, and wondering how they will make it through another day. In other words, we are The Church of Jesus Christ, of love and redeeming mercy that must act in giving, showing the hurting and disheartened God is waiting to fulfill their needs abundantly, as God did ours. Offering to others in the Name of Christ is a top priority on our walk of faith. We give trusting in God’s faithfulness. And, God never disappoints. God depends on us to be faithful servants in our generous contributions, that distress and despair shall cease. Are you abounding in your good works to transform the world into God’s restored paradise, in reference to the given Bible verse? Life can get busy, yet God is ever present to see us through. May we never become too busy with all the countless blessings God bestows upon us that we forget to give with a thankful outlook and a prayer for those who shall receive. The Finance Committee shall be meeting again very soon. Please watch for further updates and more opportunities for resourceful giving.
