THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Greetings to all facebook friends and followers of Sylvan Abbey UMC. This week we have a great treat for you. This Sunday, Cindy Smith, our music director will be bringing the message. We know how talented she is on the organ and piano, we know how beautifully she sings, now we get to hear how beautifully she can speak of how God and the power of the Holy Spirit have worked in her life. Come and enjoy a wonderful day of worship. Nancy Sudbury will be leading the service and thank you to both of them as Rhonda and I will be in Pittsburgh, PA. Please remember Sunday School for both adults and youth at 9:30 am and 10:00 am respectively. The following Sunday, September 7th is the Blessing of the Parsonage. This event will take place immediately after church as we will carpool to the parsonage and enjoy a blessing, food, and tours. Come and see Pastor Chuck's "Pittsburgh room." Have a wonderful Labor Day with friends and/or family and I look forward to being back with you on September 7 for Holy Communion and the Parsonage blessing. God is Good...All the Time!!

Our last week in the Psalm series we will look at Psalm 150 - Doxology of Praise. Come and Parise the Lord with us at Sylvan Abbey UMC. We have splendid music in a service that is inspired by the Holy Spirit. We love to meet new people and this Sunday after the worship service we are having a Potato Bar. Come and enjoy a potato with all of the toppings, maybe even some toppings you have not put on a potato before. The Potato bar is $6.00 for Adults and $3.00 for Chidren 10 and under. We have Sunday school for Adults and children started at 9:30 am and 10:00 am respectively. Praise God for all of the blessings He gives to us each day and as the Psalmist says "Let everything that has breath, Praise the Lord." Psalm 150: 6

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Week 5 in Psalms and this week we look at Psalm 100. What are you thankful for in your life? We usually look at this question during the Thanksgiving holiday but this Sunday at Sylvan Abbey we are asking that exact question. Maybe Psalm 100 can give us some answers. Come and listen to the message and see if you agree with the answers Psalm 100 has for us. We have lots of activities going on in the church and we have emailed many of you. If you want to get on our email list, call the church at 727-796-3057 and we will get you on the list. Here is a list of activities and events: Aug. 17th, Sunday - Food Pantry Sunday.

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: As we continue in the Psalms, this week we "Gotcha Covered." We will talk about Psalm 91 and how God is our refuge. Come and enjoy beautiful music and a warm welcoming community of faith. Bring a friend to worship and share your relationship with Jesus with them. We have many events and activities coming up in the following weeks and months. It will be a great fall at Sylvan Abbey UMC.

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Week 3 in our series on selected Psalms and the messge this week looks at Psalm 84. This Psalm begs the question: What is home? or How do I describe home? Maybe you that read this message can respond with your definition of "home." It may be where you grew up or may be another place all together but it would be interesting, facebook friends, to hear from you and your definition and /or description of home. Share with us! We added more people to the family last week in our service and look forward this week to a Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. It is exciting being a part of what God is doing at Sylvan Abbey UMC. Come and enjoy our service of worshipping and praising God for all He means to us. This Sunday is "pot luck meal" Sunday. Come and bring a dish to share or just come to church, there is always plenty to eat. This meal is a great time to fellowhship and to meet new friends. Come and enjoy! Remember, Sunday School at 9:30 am for adults and 10:00 am for youth. Come and bring a friend with you! "Traditional Worship for a New Milleniuum"
