1. Pastor’s thoughts
I recently received an interesting summation of possible future changing events from a childhood friend now a pastor and wanted to share them with you:
Whether these changes are good or bad
depends in part on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they
9. Privacy. If there ever was a concept
that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That's gone. It's
been gone for a long time anyway. Try Google search on your name and see how
much information is available‚ you will be appalled. There are cameras on
the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and
cell phone. But you can be sure that 24/7, "They" know who you are and where
you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View. If you
buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will
change to reflect those habits. And "They" will try to get you to buy something
else. Again and again!
2. Something to think about:
“Some people give God a tenth – a tenth of what they ought to give.”
“We are only rich through what we give, and poor only through what we keep.”
“Your use of money shows what you think of God.”
“When giving to God, we are just taking our hands off what belongs to Him.”
“Don’t try to cheat the Lord and call it economizing.”
“God has enough money in the pockets of Christians to do everything he expects
the church to do.”
3. “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones”
(Proverbs 17:22 NIV)
A man and his wife were walking in a crowd. The husband delighted his wife by taking her hand. She asked, “You don’t want to lose me?” He replied, “I don’t want to have to look for you.”
“I’m really worried,” said one little boy to a friend. “Dad slaves away at his job so I’ll never want for anything, so I’ll be able to go to a university if I want to. Mom works hard every day washing and ironing, cleaning up after me, taking care of me when I get sick. They spend every day of their lives working just on my behalf. I’m worried.” His friend asked, “What have you got to worry about?’ And he replied, “I’m afraid they might try to escape.”
A little boy had developed a bad habit. He was always lying. Once when he was given a St. Bernard dog for his birthday, he went out and told all the neighbors that he had been given a lion. The mother took him aside and said, “I told you not to lie. You march right upstairs and tell God you’re sorry. Promise God you will not lie again.” The little boy went upstairs, said his prayers, then came down again. His mother asked, “Did you tell God you are sorry?” The little boy replied, “Yes, I did. And God said sometimes he finds it hard to tell my dog from a lion too.”
There was an elderly lady who said to a little girl, “How do you do my dear?” The girl replied, “Quite well, thank you.” After a long pause the woman asked, “Why don’t you ask me how I am?” The child paused and said calmly, “Because, I’m not interested.”

5. Rose Hill news:
The Sunday school is having another one of those wonderful down home cooking breakfasts on Sunday, October 3rd at 8:30A.M. And the best is…there is no charge! Come and join us.
Prime Timer’s group meets the first and third Thursdays at noon for a potluck lunch and a time of fellowship. If you are 55 or over you are invited to join them at the church.
Ladies Bible Study is every Tuesday at 10:00 A.M. at the church; and the men meet the third Saturday at the church sanctuary at 8:00 A.M. for prayer breakfast.
The Tribe of Faith small group will not meet the first and second Mondays of the month, but will be back on schedule on the third. The small group that meets at the Bratton’s home will not meet on the first Thursday of the month but will be back on schedule the next Thursday.
Rose Hill will
be hosting missionaries Phil and Martha Patalano from
Donna will be introducing the Christmas cantata this month. Choir will meet on Wednesday the 20th and 27th of this month at 6:00 P.M. in the sanctuary. If you have ever wanted to sing in the choir, why not try it out.
On Saturday, October 30th at 5:30 P.M. the Sunday school will be sponsoring a bonfire and weenie roast in “the back 40.” Games, hay ride, good food and fellowship and cash awards for the one who invited and brings the most “un-churched.” Details will be posted around the church.
October 31st will be the last day to add your name to the list for
the Ladies Shopping Trip to
October birthdays at Rose Hill include: Carolee Cox (9th), Terry Baldwin (18th), Faye Williams (21st) and Jonathan Marshall (31st)
Again, I leave you with this question: “Who do you know that is not attending church?” Can you see their face clearly? Pick up the phone and invite them to come to Rose Hill this Sunday for a “free” country breakfast!
