Reflections From John
I find it fascinating that the very first words spoken
to human beings created in the Image of God are, “Be
fruitful…” We tend to receive such as a directive to
populate the world with children. But I am convinced
that God always wants to teach us of the deeper
things about life, employing the world He has created
as a teaching tool to do so. Rather than an either/or
approach to things He says, we do well to understand
a both/and approach to be in order.
Our God is interested in the world going on; yes, He
desires our world to flourish with human beings created in His Image. His charge to us to be fruitful includes both the directive to have families and to embrace the Great Commission (“Go therefore and make
disciples of all the nations …”), fulfilling God’s desire
and purpose for us, as those created in His Image.
We are to be His ambassadors of reconciliation, helping Him to reconcile broken relationships of all kinds,
be they between God and His children or between us
and one another. That’s a tall order, and we can be
forever grateful that He’s promised us His Presence
and His guidance empowering us to be faithful.
As His Church family, we become wise as we become
willing to believe what God says to us. We do well to
ask ourselves, “Are we being fruitful?” That’s a good
question for us as individuals AND as a community of
faith. I thank each one of you who has been serious
about our exploration of the five practices of fruitful
congregations. To all of you who have graciously invested yourself in providing leadership in this regard,
THANK YOU! We have explored areas of Intentional Faith Development, and Radical Hospitality thus far, and as you receive this we will soon
be looking into Risk-taking Mission and Service, Passionate Worship, and Extravagant Generosity. Our
reasons for delving into these areas of ministry have revolved
around a sincere desire to be faithful and fruitful. God longs
for us to be those kinds of people.
His WORD is clear: Unless the LORD builds the house, the
laborers labor in vain. (Psalm 127:1) We dare not miss the
essential significance of our need to be filled with the Holy
Spirit in order for us to truly be fruitful. Jesus was emphatic:
“I am the True Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every
branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every
branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more
fruit…Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you,
unless you abide in Me…He who abides in Me, and I in him,
bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John
15: 1-5)
No, I don’t think Jesus enjoys pulling the rug out from underneath us, poking holes in our self-sufficient pride. Without a
doubt, human beings are capable of remarkable accomplishments. But Jesus wants us to be well aware that when it comes
to those things that matter --- Eternally --- we cannot be fruitful without Him. He loves us enough to make sure we do not
miss that fact.
Invite Jesus, the King of kings and LORD of lords, to fill you
with His Spirit, enabling and empowering you to be fruitful.
As He makes good on His Promises to each one of us, we, as
His Church, will be fruitful in our intentional faith development, radical hospitality, passionate worship, risk-taking mission and service, and extravagant generosity. And the world
will become a better place!

The Season of Learning
Wow! Where did the summer go? It seems like
only a couple of weeks ago we were congratulating
our graduates. Now we’re blessing the backpacks
and sending the kids back to school.
Yes, it’s the season to get back to learning. So the big
question for the month is, what class are you going to
take? Just like students returning to school, it’s time for
all us church members to return to our classes. That’s
the thing about being a committed Christian, there’s always more to learn.
So what’s it going to be? How are you going to go
back to school? One way is to join one of the Sunday
morning classes. If you’re going to make the drive to
church anyway, why not get here a little earlier and
spend some time in fellowship and discussion about
some aspect of how God is in our lives. In addition to
all the children and youth classes, there are also several
classes for adults. There’s a class for parents of young
children, and another for parents with tweens and teens.
There’s the Journey through the Bible class. Plus one of
my favorites, Movie and a Message. All of these classes
are open to all levels of biblical expertise.
If you can’t do a Sunday morning class, we have offerings during the week. On Monday morning, the Monday Morning Women’s group meets. I’m teaching a
Disciple 1 class on Monday evenings.
Wednesday is another day with several class options.
On Wednesday mornings, there are both Men’s and
Women’s prayer breakfasts. In the evening Pastor John
P a g e
teaches a class, and there’s a men’s
Bible study as well.
If you want to try a shorter term commitment, there are several small
groups of people that have taken it upon
themselves to host a 4 to 6 week class on an
area that interests them. In the past such
books as, “They Like Jesus but Not the
Church ,“The Celebration of Discipline”,
and “Chasing God” have served to be the
basis of these short-term classes. If there’s
a topic or book that interests you, let me
know. I’m sure other people would be interested as well, and we could start one of
these classes.
So now, that I’ve told you what’s available,
let me explain why it’s important that you
attend a class. Mainly because we want you
and your experiences there. All these
classes work best when there’s a dialog
among a number of people attending. Everyone brings different thoughts and experiences to the conversation, and it’s through
discussing those experiences that we learn
and grow.
Now I bet you thought I was going to say
you had to go because you needed to learn
more about God. Well, while my hope is
that you will take in information while you
learn, I’m really more excited about what
you can give the rest of us through sharing
and talking.
So why don’t you come join the rest of us
students, and let’s start sharing…

Growing a Christian life takes more than
just one hour a week sitting in the pew for
worship. It’s about a life that has been
transformed by the Word of God. How can
we be transformed if we are not spending
time studying His Word?

PFUMC challenges everyone to
spend an additional hour each week in
Bible study, Small Group, Sunday School
Class, or a Christian accountability group.

Fund-raising Collection Request Form
There is a form that will need to be completed for ALL fund-raising efforts at the church. The
Fund-raising Collection Request forms are located in the office, the office of Susan Henry,
Financial Secretary, and on the church website under “Members.” Completed forms should
be given to Susan who will pass them on to the Finance Committee. The Finance Committee
will review the requests and either approve, deny, or approve with a change to a different
date. This process will avoid numerous fund-raisers going on at the same time and allow an
organized approach within our church calendar.
Thank you,

CATERED DINNER ~ $15 (child care
6:00 p.m. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17TH
Every single one of us is God's "Pearl of Great
Price" for whom He paid it all through His precious Son Jesus. Millions of other precious
"pearls" are buried in the dark places of human
labor trafficking and sex trafficking. Men and
boys, women and girls have no choices because
they are victims of trafficking, with abuse and
threats on their lives, as well as on the lives of
their families. And it happens even in good
families and safe neighborhoods like ours.
We can do so much more than wring our hands
over these heinous sins. Come to learn how we
can help prevent trafficking, help in rescuing,
and help in after care and building new
lives. EVERYONE can do something!!! Although every organization needs
funds to do their work, there is so much more
we can do as well.
Mission Opportunities for the WHOLE Family!
We had wonderful support for the NOAH Project
making bagged lunches as we’ve kicked off Family
Missions this year, and now we want to highlight
some other opportunities you have to serve TOGETHER this fall!
Saturday, October 4th: Hands4Detroit (an outreach & mission event by the Detroit Renaissance
District of the UMC; sign-up your family individually at for specific
Sunday, October 5th immediately after church:

of organizations and to talk to your kids about opportunities to serve both in and outside the church
… all while enjoying snacks and prizes!)
Becoming educated about and participating in
stemming the riptide of human trafficking is
PFUMC's major new mission emphasis. The lives of
your children, grandchildren, or every child you
know may be at stake. Come find out what you can
do to protect them. (We are planning events for the
teens at a later date.)

Mission and Ministry Fair immediately following Worship on
World Communion Sunday, October 5th
2014 Plymouth/Canton CROP Walk
“In everything I have shown you that, by working hard, we must help the weak. In this way we
remember the Lord Jesus’ words: ‘It is more
blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35 CEB
Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 1:30 pm
God placed a call on my heart to explore international ministry. With the help of Ron and Pam
Fair, I connected with the Rafiki organization and
completed the Rafiki mini-missionary training in
their Florida facility during the spring of 2012. In
the summer of 2012, I served at the Rafiki orphan
village in Kenya, Africa. What a privilege to
serve as a teacher to so many fine Kenyan children. Then, in the summer of 2013 I had privilege
to serve at the Rafiki orphan village in Malawi,
Africa and serve those fine children of Malawi
and be where Ron and Pam Fair were serving for
about 16 months. I will continue to listen for
God's direction and look forward to more missionary opportunities. I was privileged to work
with the fine orphaned children of Malawi .
- Jeannie Martin
Jeanne’s testimony reminds us that mission work
starts by simply making ourselves available to
God’s call. As members of a community of believers, God calls us all to faithfully love and
serve others. This fall during our 5 Practices
study, we will be reviewing God’s call for us to
partake in risk-taking mission and service. As
part of this study, the Missions Committee invites
every member of our church (young and old) to
participate in the Mission and Ministry Fair being
held directly after Worship on Sunday, October
5th in the Fellowship Hall. Please plan to stay
after service for 30 minutes and learn about the
more than 30 organizations that PFUMC has
partnered with to provide each of us an opportunity to be blessed by showing Christ to the world.

60 + NEWS
60+ had a very auspicious September beginning of the
2014-15 season. Almost all the usual suspects arrived,
along with a number of new ones (we hope will become
regulars), Chef Cheryl provided her usual bodacious
lunch, and we were enlightened and informed by our
very knowledgeable guest speaker Cynthia Khan.
Cynthia was born into a Christian family of Hindu background. Her husband, Khurram, was also raised a
Christian with a Muslim background. His grandfather
became a believer when he heard a street missionary
speak the words from Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first
the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all
these things shall be added unto you.”, and he asked for
and was given a Bible to study in his own language.
Cynthia and Khurram also lived in Saudi Arabia where
sharia is the ruling law and women are completely repressed, she being subjected to wearing the required
black clothing which totally covered women when in
public. However, because she was not a Saudi, she was
spared having to completely cover her face. From Saudi
Arabia where Cynthia was a teacher and Khurram was
an engineer, they were called to mission work for Christ
and in 1994 immigrated to America to pursue that call-
ing. While they are free here, Christian family members and
friends are living in potentially dangerous circumstances
since Pakistan in recent years has also come under sharia law.
During her talk Cynthia gave us helpful information about
how to sensitively and meaningfully dialogue with a Muslim
as such opportunities may become more and more frequent
for many of us.
Cynthia’s love for Christ is inspiring, as is her love for and
mission to bring Christ to others, especially Muslim women.
She is the Women’s & Youth Ministries Director of POBLO
International an organization originated in Dearborn whose
mission is to make disciples for Christ, both abroad and at
home. One of the projects is outreach to refugees and immigrants through Friendship Centers offering hospitality and
friendship, English as a second language, sewing, computer
and citizenship classes. Cynthia is helping to set up and train
volunteers for a center in the Living Word church, our
neighbor up the street. You can learn more about her work
and POBLO by visiting their website at
Next month we look forward to our guest Bob Nelson who
will present a program about he and Nancy’s dream trip up
the Danube and down the Rhine last May. Reservation sheet
is in the great hall or you can call Mary (248-374-0369) or
Sandy (734-459-5471). See you October 6th!

Dear Church family, I am blessed to be covered in prayer from my church family. Over the past few months my battle with cancer has been difficult, but I have
known that I have a great support system from my family and my church friends.
I fell covered with prayer. I appreciate all the cards, the Men’s and Women’s
prayer breakfast extra prayers, pastor visits, the beautiful prayer shawl, and the
love and support from each and everyone one of you who are praying for me. I
know that still I have a long journey ahead of me, but with the support from my
family and my church friends I am learning to Trust and obey God. He will take
care of me! Thank you. With Love, Janice Groat
