First United Methodist By Susan Ross We finally made it to the top of our hymn count-downl The mtmber one hymn, for the second year in a row, is "How Great Thou Art." This Sunday, Sept. 5, the scrilP tures for worship will be Psalms 148; Romans 13;8-10: and Mathew 18;15-20. The sermon title is "Mind Your Threes and Twos." We will consider Jesus' claim that when two or three of us gather together in his name, whatever we ask for in prayer will be ours. Can that really be true? What does it mean? Our choir will sing "Father We Adore You." and Chelsea Cobb will sing a solo as an offertory. We are still organizing Disciple Bible studies for this fall. If you are interested in this exciting study aimed at resourein8 you to live as a disciple in God's world, please let us know soon. We need a few more folks to have enough to form a group.
