THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: The 7 Deadly Sins start this week with number 1 - Pride. Pride may be the root of all of the deadly sins and we will look at Pride in both the positive and negative way. We acknowledged last week that we were sinners as we brought forward and then dropped our rocks in front of the alter. When we acknowledged we were sinners we also, at that point, knew we needed a Savior and Jesus is our Savior! Next week, September 28, we will start a new Adult Sunday school series on Heaven: It's not what you think with Chip Ingram. Come at 9:30 am to enjoy this new series. Youth Sunday school at 10:00 am. Lots of activities are coming in October for everyone: children, youth, and adults. We are starting a youth music and praise time on Sunday nights and hope we can have an adult time as well. Talk to the Pastor and Cindy Smith about this exciting opportunity. Activities on the Church property with a Fish Fry on Saturday, October 11 and Rummage Sale Saturday, October 25. Come and enjoy both of these community events. We are enjoying serving the Lord and growing our faith and deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ. Come, bring a friend and enjoy the love and fellowship that is the community of faith at Sylvan Abbey UMC. "Traditional Worship for a New Millennium"

THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: This Sunday we are starting a new 8 week series on the "7 Deadly Sins." This week we ask the question-Is Sin a Bad Word? We ask the question because the postmodern church hesitates to use the word SIN anymore as people see it as too judgmental. We will discuss sin, how to handle our sin, and view in a deeper more meaningful way, just what it means for us to be sinners. Each week, after this week, we will look at one of the 7 Deadly Sins starting on September 21 with the Sin of Pride. Come and bring a friend and feel the power of the Holy Spirit as He guides and directs our worship service and lives. Remember, Sunday School for youth and adults at 10:00 am and 9:30 am respectively. "Traditional Worship for a New Millennium"
