United Methodist Women Who Are United Methodist Women? The UMW is a methodist tradition. We welcome all women to participate in the programs of the Mary Martha or Friendship Circles. Both circles meet on the 2nd Monday of each month-Friendship at 7PM & Mary Martha at 1 PM . If you have questions about how to get involved with United Methodist Women, please contact Marilyn Kirking or Gwen Dunlap. Purpose of United Methodist Women The organized units of United Methodist Women are a worldwide community of women whose purpose is: to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of missions through participation in the Global Ministries of the Church. West Side United Methodist Women The purpose of the UMW is to “be a community of women whose purpose is: to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of missions through participation in the Global Ministries of the Church.” That goal is accomplished here at West Side through the work of the individual circles and the unit as a group. There are opportunities for spiritual development and social awareness through programs presented at circle meetings and actual participation in projects like Habitat for Humanity and Interfaith Hospitality Network. Each year we begin in January by conducting a pledge service in our circles. Our Soup-er Bowl fundraiser takes place in conjunction with the Super Bowl football game. We participate in the World Day of Prayer in March. During the fall, we participate in additional fundraisers for missions including a Harvest Sale just prior to Thanksgiving. These events bless us two-fold. Not only do we have the opportunity to raise funds to support mission teams across the world and local groups like the Chelsea Retirement Community Benevolent Fund, the Baldwin Center, the Methodist Children’s home and West Side’s members on short term mission, but we are also able to have great fun doing it! Come join us…

P: Praise God for wonderful acts of mercy and kindness! L: God has remembered God’s faithful ones. P: God has poured blessing upon blessing upon us! L: Praise the Lord, all the earth, shout your praise! P: Rejoice, for God is truly with us. AMEN. Opening Song Come Down, O Love Divine (UMH 475) 1. Come down, O Love divine, seek thou this soul of mine, and visit it with thine own ardor glowing; O Comforter, draw near, within my heart appear, and kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing. 2. O let it freely burn, till earthly passions turn to dust and ashes in its heat consuming; and let thy glorious light shine ever on my sight, and clothe me round, the while my path illuming. 3. And so the yearning strong, with which the soul will long, shall far outpass the power of human telling; for none can guess its grace, till Love create a place wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling. Scripture Reading While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell on everyone who heard the word. 45 The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. 46 They heard them speaking in other languages and praising God. Peter asked, 47 “These people have received the Holy Spirit just as we have. Surely no one can stop them from being baptized with water, can they?” 48 He directed that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they invited Peter to stay for several days.

- Bulletin | westside-church
Welcome Call to Worship L: We are called to be God's children. P: God's love has been poured on us through Jesus Christ! L: Fear and doubt are gone! P: Joy and Celebration ring in our hearts! L: Come, let us raise our voices in song! P: Let us offer our hearts and souls to God in prayer and praise. Amen. Song 1 As the Deer (TFWS 2025) Announcements New Testament Reading Luke 16:1-13 Jesus also said to the disciples, “A certain rich man heard that his household manager was wasting his estate. He called the manager in and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give me a report of your administration because you can no longer serve as my manager.’ “The household manager said to himself, What will I do now that my master is firing me as his manager? I’m not strong enough to dig and too proud to beg. I know what I’ll do so that, when I am removed from my management position, people will welcome me into their houses. “One by one, the manager sent for each person who owed his master money. He said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ He said, ‘Nine hundred gallons of olive oil.’The manager said to him, ‘Take your contract, sit down quickly, and write four hundred fifty gallons.’ Then the manager said to another, ‘How much do you owe?’ He said, ‘One thousand bushels of wheat.’ He said, ‘Take your contract and write eight hundred.’ “The master commended the dishonest manager because he acted cleverly. People who belong to this world are more clever in dealing with their peers than are people who belong to the light. I tell you, use worldly wealth to make friends for yourselves so that when it’s gone, you will be welcomed into the eternal homes. “Whoever is faithful with little is also faithful with much, and the one who is dishonest with little is also dishonest with much. If you haven’t been faithful with worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? If you haven’t been faithful with someone else’s property, who will give you your own? No household servant can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be loyal to the one and have contempt for the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Song 2 Seek Ye First(UMH 405) Message: Your Time and Money Song 3 What Does the Lord Require (UMH 441) Offertory Anthem "Never weather-beaten sail".
