    The Bible Doesn’t Say That! - Summer Sermon Series

    There is no book more widely read than the Holy Bible. Which means, there is no book interpreted incorrectly, lazily, or wishfully than the Holy Bible. Join us this summer as Lori, Becca, and Sam present a sermon series that explores many of these passages. We’ll dive into phrases commonly thought of as biblical but aren’t, verses that sound great on a bumper sticker but mean something completely different in context, and verses where words have been changed to reflect periodic special interests. We know this community of faithful questioners will love diving deeper into scripture as a living, breathing document to guide our spiritual journeys.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTORS

"As the pastors of this unique faith community, we care deeply about the people and creation around us. Our congregation is as vibrant and inviting as the Native Habitat that surrounds our building and as bold as the solar panels on our roof. We hope you will join us on this adventure we call faith.

 

Each of us, exactly as we are--and as we are still becoming-- are named beloved by the One who created us. All are welcome as together we endeavor to be and create the Kin-dom of God. We listen deeply for what the Spirit is calling us to be and to do in this world. We wrestle with questions more than we offer answers. We like it that way; we believe Jesus did the same thing!

 

May you feel the presence of the Spirit and remember that you are loved as you explore both faith and doubt.  Perhaps your journey will lead you to Carmel, IN. If it does, we hope to meet you."

Lori Bievenour and Rebecca Lockwood

Thank you to those who have already emailed or turned in their pledge cards! If you haven’t had time, or simply forgot, we are still accepting pledges for the upcoming fiscal year.  Please email Seth Kreigh at GenerosityLead@StPetersCarmel.org or fill out and return a pledge card in the offering plate during service.


WOMEN & THE WORD:  Throughout the summer, we will meet for coffee at SoHo, 620 S Rangeline Rd, Carmel, at 10:00, to stay connected.


CARMEL UMC FOOD PANTRY DONATIONS:  Because kids are home, we want to stock the pantry with the standards we've been focusing on so far this year. Over the summer, we want to collect boxes of cereal, heat and eat protein meals (canned ravioli, canned beef stew, canned soup), and kid friendly snacks like granola bars, goldfish crackers, raisins.  It is helpful to the food pantry if you make your donation in a paper bag or a reusable cloth bag instead of plastic.  We will also continue to collect "luxury items" like feminine products (pads, tampons), lotion, toothpaste, and hair conditioner. Also, anyone with garden produce can drop directly at Carmel UMC.  Contact Liz Chandler at gentlemomlc@gmail.com  for info on dropping directly to the pantry.


FAMILY PROMISE: Sign-ups for our summer hosting with Family Promise are now available! We host for two weeks in a row during the summer when preschool is not in session so that simplifies the set up a bit. We know many people vacation during the summer. If you can, please sign up here: https://bit.ly/2EDlspK
