Plymouth First United Methodist Church Newsletter Reflections from John Inside this issue: Reflections from John (con) 2 Salvation Army On this side of Christmas, I celebrate God’s willingness to enter our world. Yes, God is willing to enter your world and mine, though at times it feels as if that amounts to nothing more than religious cliché and sentiment. Even the committed and devout find themselves wincing when face to face with scrawled slogans and neon signs broadcasting, “Jesus Saves!” The angel was clear. Informing Joseph of things to come, the message was, “She (Mary) will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” In a culture that took names very seriously, believing that sound and meaning would reflect the significance of the child, it is instructive to consider the meaning of Yeshua, which we translate Jesus. Literally, His name means, “The Lord is salvation.” Lent Small Group Lent Study Lenten Worship Services 3 Live Big Area 56 Coat Drive Daily Audio Bible 4 Valentine Dinner B-1 Fast Music & Fellowship Night Training events 5 February Calendar Knit & Crochet ASP Lunch Financial Update 6/ 7 Red Cross Hope Circle 60+ 8 24 Hours that Changed the My Life - A PFUMC Lenten Devotional Rewards Program Donation On Line Roe Scholarship Super Sub Sale 9 We all have a story to tell and here is your chance to tell it! Thank You Notes Hagley Family Photo Nursery Volunteers February Birthdays 10 Prayer Concerns 11 Noteworthy Concert 12 And yet that is exactly why Jesus entered, and continues to enter, our world. He saves! His birth, His life and teaching, His death, and His Resurrection all have to do with the fact that Jesus saves! Thoughtful persons have long recognized that we human beings find ourselves overmatched by circumstances and find ourselves in need of One bigger and better than ourselves, especially One able and willing to speak to God on our behalf. The Christian Education Ministry is currently collecting personal stories from the congregation of how Jesus has changed their lives. We would like these experiences/ thoughts written in the form of a devotional such as those found in the Upper Room with a scripture, a devotion, and a prayer. Please email your submissions to [email protected] by January 22nd. 2012 poses yet another round of political jousting, with combatants pitching a case for their political and economic solutions to the problems that beset us. It is an age-old dilemma. Many of Jesus’ early followers were convinced He had come to save Israel from their national enemies and to establish a political stronghold. The messenger from Continued on page 2 Original art work is also being collected to be featured in the book. Devotional Books will be made available to the congregation in time for Lent. Questions?

Page 2 “Jesus Saves!” His birth, His life and teaching, His death, and His Resurrection all have to do with the fact that Jesus Saves! Our community is blessed with wonderful volunteers. To show our appreciation, we are hosting a Volunteer Thank You Open House on Sunday, January 22nd from 1-3pm. Join us for cake, cookies, coffee and great conversations. We invite our volunteers to share their volunteering experience and stores with one another. The Open House will be held at our Corps building at 9451 S. Main Street, Plymouth. Please RSVP at 734-4535464 or by e-mail to Sandy at sandra_kollinger @usc.salvatinarmy.org by Thursday, January 19. BEACON Reflections from John (continued from the front page) on High informed Joseph of something qualitatively different, both specific and profound. Beyond the realm of politics and economics; beyond the realm of physical health and well-being, we find ourselves in need of help regarding the root problem of humanity. The Bible calls it sin. And Jesus entered our world to save us from this root problem. Please know that we all need the Savior! Life poses those circumstances that truly overmatch us. Rejoice that Jesus is willing to enter our world today, just as He has. Be wise to believe and receive what He offers you today, tomorrow, and forevermore, for it is nothing less than life eternal, a quality of life made possible by being filled with God’s Spirit. For sure, it has become passé to talk about sin, even in the Church. But one cannot read Holy Scripture without discovering an understanding and appreciation of Jesus Christ as One willing to do something so far-reaching that we are challenged to enter a whole new realm of thought. Paul goes so far to say that we are involved in a conflict with, “the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil…,” helping us to understand that Jesus is able to equip us for such a battle both within and without. Yes, He can and He will save us. Here at Plymouth: First we began 2012 with a Covenant Service in which we committed ourselves to our Lord and Savior. We prayed, “I here, from the bottom of my heart renounce them (idols) all, covenanting with You that no known sin shall be allowed in my life.” We committed ourselves to serve our Savior in holiness and righteousness. I am confident that as we live in integrity around those commitments, 2012 will be a great year and I shall be praying for one and all. We want to share our appreciation to everyone who donated their time, talents and monies to help support our 2011 Christmas Programs. We also want to share an update on the status of our fundraising campaign and holiday assistance given to those in need. Our overall 2011 Christmas fundraising goal is $315,000. We have received $305,000 or 96% of the goal to date. The fundraising campaign will wrap up at the end of January 2012. Furthermore, $200,933 was collected in the Red Kettles. Our 2011 Thanksgiving Program allowed us to assist 328 families which included 303 children for a total of 1,217 individuals. We were blessed to have 19 volunteers give 28 hours of their time to pack food boxes and another 40 volunteers give 155 hours of their time to help distribute the food boxes over 2 days to the families we assisted. Our 2011 Christmas Toy Towne Program assisted just over 500 families which included 1,033 children for a total of 1,807 individuals. It took 4 days to setup, prepare and transform our gym into Toy Towne. 114 vol- In His service, John unteers donated 331 hours to make this tremendous task happen. Our Toy Towne Distribution, which took place over a 4 day period, had 239 volunteers donated 755 hours of their time and efforts to ensure our clients experience a brighter Christmas. Our volunteers processed and verified information, escorted parents through Toy Towne assisting with gift selections for their children, distributed Christmas Dinner boxes and then carried it all out to their vehicles. We can not forget about the brave and hearty individuals, who stood in the cold, rain and the little bit of snow to ring the bells during the Red Kettle Campaign. We are blessed that many bell ringing volunteers returned from last year to help out. We are highly dependant on volunteer bell ringers to collect funds enabling us to meet our kettle goal.

I would be lying if I told you that I ever made it very far. Now, don’t get me wrong, I read the Bible regularly, am involved in multiple Bible studies, and review enough curriculum to stay immersed in God’s word. That said, I have always wanted to read through the bible in a calendar year. Really wanted to but never did. Currently the host, Brian Harden, is reading from Genesis, Matthew, Psalms, and Proverbs. He then provides commentary and prayer. The last 15 minutes or so are prayer requests from the Daily Audio Bible community. (I only listen to those when I have time.) If you feel called, please join me on this journey. You don’t have to go back and catch up. Just jump in where we are. You can do the first month in 2013! Last year, a friend invited me to try listening to the Daily Audio Bible podPodcasts can be downloaded on iTunes casts. I was intrigued so I diligently downloaded them for 2 weeks. I never or at www.dailyaudiobible.com. If you want to discuss the readings, you can listened to a single one. Sigh. join my Facebook group - 2012 Daily This year is different. This year, I have Audio Bible. been listening with my children in the car as we drive to all of our events. There is a great podcasts for kids, too! The podcast is well done and I can already tell that it is changing my life!

To start off the new year, Sixty Plussers traveled back in time to Jack Paar’s Tonight Show which hit the airwaves July 29, 1957. The one hour and 45 minute, fivedays a week program continued until Paar left to do other projects five years later. Being a live program (as most were in the 50’s) no one knew what might happen; which is what made it all so fun and intriguing. The format that he introduced has remained the same for all TV talk shows today: a monologue, a desk and chairs/ sofa for guests and a showcase for new entertainers. Did you know that although he was born in Canton, Ohio he was raised in Jackson, Michigan and got his first radio job at the local station in Jackson? His hope was to make it big in Detroit, but he traveled somewhat farther than that. Within weeks his Tonight program became the most talked about show on TV and Michigan’s homegrown boy became a household name. Over the years his guests included Presidents Kennedy and Nixon, Robert Kennedy, Fidel Castro, Randolph Churchill, Billy Graham, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt and just about anybody who was anybody and a few nobodys like Mrs. Miller. It was an exciting five years and it was fun to revisit some of it. Next month on Monday, February 6th we are very pleased to welcome back Dr. Marcia into our luncheon midst to teach us more about the history and fascinating workings of the wonderful instrument she so beautifully plays, the organ. And we might just be treated to a mini organ concert as well. Please mark the date on your calendar now ~ same time (11:30 am), same place (Fellowship Hall) and still only $5. The reservation sign-up sheet is located in the hallway across from Fellowship Hall, or you can call Mary (248-374-0369) or Sandy (734-459-5471). Avoid the rush ~ sign up now and invite a friend.
