From the Pastor:
Just These Lines My Friends…
.
To say that summer is here and we are getting ready for Vacation Bible School! Our staff
ministry team is so looking forward to having our kids and community children come; and we are
excited about the mission opportunity to share the ‘good news’ of Jesus with all of God’s children. We
are making plans for a bilingual VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL “El Rey Que Viene- The Coming King”
July 28- Aug 1st. Can’t wait to have fun with the kids, make crafts, play games, learn bible stories and
new songs in English and ‘Español.’
There is a part for everyone in the church to play in nurturing
God’s children – Won’t you help in some way with Vacation Bible School this year?
Hopefully summer for you and yours brings some time of relaxation, maybe even vacation.
Through the years, the family Koontz learned to appreciate vacation time as a time to get away from
our many activities and responsibilities and just focus on being together as a family. Some folks enjoy
traveling to new places; others prefer (or needs require) staying at home. In the early years, we took
what we called ‘mini vacations’ which were going on the road with Dad, the traveling salesman. As our
kids got older, we made a point of thinking about the places we wanted to visit as a family, and each
vacation was a time to ‘make memories.’ Through the years, we have enjoyed trips to the beach, the
mountains, camping trips, and have seen quite a few of our National Parks. While on the road, we have
enjoyed worshipping in other United Methodist congregations and other churches as our travel
schedule allowed. Sometimes, we have enjoyed ‘worshipping in the woods’ or even singing some
hymns in the car on our way to somewhere. Whether you find yourselves far away or close to home,
….try to pause and rest, and keep the Sabbath, by finding somewhere to worship on Sunday!
Remember the Sabbath was created for our good….and is something for us to do year round as we put
God first by worshipping the Holy One, and praising God for the many blessings in our lives! Don’t
forget to bring Pastor Deb a bulletin…I love to ‘share ideas’ from other churches….and when you are
in town, I hope to see you in church on Sunday!
I love being your Pastor and Friend….

JULY 11th?!
Yep, July 11th
We are making plans for a bilingual VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL entitled
“El Rey Que Viene --- The Coming King” the last week in July --From July 28th through August 1st from 6:00 – 8:30pm. A meal will be provided from 6:00 –
6:30pm. Please mark your calendars now to participate. It is for ages 3 to 14 for kids and
there will be an adult class as well. We need your help in many ways so I hope you will sign
up by marking the yellow card in your bulletin with your name and phone number saying want
to help with VBS or you may call the church office and ask for Sue Newman, 276-4628. We
are anticipating and looking forward to an exciting time with the kids and hope you will be
here to experience it with us.
The youth had a great time at the Flynn’s house on June 1st for our cookout and bonfire.
For some of the youth it was their very first experience of having s’mores or toasting
marshmallows!
We played games and took some great photos around the fire. We’re very excited that our
newest youth member joined in, Miss Raven Brown who is now a rising 6th grader!
We’re also excited about our current summer plans, including our participation with
CARITAS and our trip to Kings Dominion! We’d like to extend a big thank you to our young
adults who have volunteered to chaperone the Kings Dominion trip!
Don’t get left out of the picture and
have to hear about it from friends.
Join us at noon (or come early and visit)
When we gather in Fellowship Hall to enjoy hotdogs & hamburgers
and all the fixings!
RSVP by July 9th

My Parents Table: A Community Meal Program
As many of you may know the free community meal program at Ramsey Memorial
United Church is up and running. To date we have served 4 community meals, each
on the last Sat of each month. On average we have served approximately 32
individuals at each meal. These individuals are typically not members of the church but
church members are welcome to join us for the meal! Thanks to all our Ramsey
members (especially Agape) who have helped prepare food, prep food, greet guests,
serve food or given donations. We would love to have additional Ramsey members to
help! The meal will always be the last Sat of each month. Call Sherry Fox at 316-3377
if you would like to participate. This is a great opportunity to enjoy great fellowship and
extend an act of kindness to the community. If you are unable to join us but would like
to make a financial donation, please make a check to Ramsey Memorial United
Methodist Church and put “My Parent’s Table” in the memo line. The financial
donations help us prepare nutritious meals that might not otherwise be possible.
Hope to see you soon!

United Methodist Women
Summer, Lemonade, Books and Lots of Missions
FROM THE FINANCE COMMITTEE
Each year, we ask the various groups within the church with a checking account to give us a statement
showing income and expenditures, and we do this for two reasons. The Book of Discipline states that we are
responsible for all monies collected and expended by Ramsey Church from any and all sources. But it is also
a good way to publicize the generosity and hard work of these groups.
We received statements from 13 groups - Sunday School classes, UMW Circles, the Choir, the BUCS, the
Youth, and the Mission Team. For 2013, they reported total income of $37,897, of which about 1/3 came from
member donations. The rest of it came from various fundraisers – selling pecans, barbecue, knives,
Brunswick stew, a yard sale, a craft sale, an auction, a bake sale, the Valentine dinner/dance, Souper Bowl
Sunday, Santa Breakfast, Easter breakfast, spaghetti dinner, prayer breakfast, Bethlehem Walk, newspaper
recycling, and the Mothers’ Day/Fathers’ Day bulletin inserts.
What did they do with all this money? Several thousand dollars were donated back to our church for the
Lenten Offering, the Ellen Project, our Food Pantry (who gave out 673 bags of groceries last year!), youth
retreats, love baskets, books for the UMW Reading Program, CARITAS, White Christmas, assistance to a
church member, flowers for the sick, meals for our church families after funerals, and memorials.

Saturday, OCTOBER 18 Ramsey UMW will present a one day retreat.
We are going to explore how God Is Closer than You Think.
How do Waldo of where in the world fame & Michangelo help us to realize how close God truly is? On
October 18, we hope to help you find out.
In a one day retreat, we are going to explore how God Is Closer than You Think: This Can Be the
Greatest Moment of Your Life Because This Moment Is the Place Where You Can Meet God. This is what
the Bible promises, so why settle for less? God reaches out all the time. Come and find out how to reach
back and "complete" the connection - to your joy and His.
En el principio creo Dios los cielos y la tierra. La tierra estaba desordenada y vacía, las
tinieblas estaban sobre la faz del abismo y el espíritu d Dio se movía sobre las aguas. Dijo
Dios, "sea la luz y fue la luz". Vio Dios que la luz era buena y separo la luz de las tinieblas.
Génesis 1:1-3.
Tenemos planes de realizar Una escuela bíblica bilingüe de verano,
“El Rey que viene- The Coming King”
Comenzará desde el 28 de Julio al 1 de Agosto, de 6:00-8:00 p.m. Una cena será servida de
6:00-6:30; Por favor marquen sus calendarios para participar. Esta escuela es para las
edades de 3 a 14 años de edad, también habrá una clase para adultos.
Necesitamos su ayuda en cualquier manera posible, por favor de llamar a la oficina de la
iglesia al 276-4628.
¿Cuál es el objetivo principal de la historia de la creación en Génesis 1-3? ¿Se tratara de un
relato histórico, o de una lección moral, o de una simple alegoría?
Estamos anticipando y esperando que sea un gran proyecto para todos especialmente para
los(as) niños(as).
Desde un Rincón Pastoral
Por fe pienso, y así lo creo, que el propósito principal de la historia de la creación en Génesis
1-3 es introducirnos a Dios como el Creador de todo cuanto existe. A pesar de las
diferencias encontradas en los dos relatos en Génesis acerca de la creación; una cosa es
cierta y es que no importa cuanta controversia esto traiga o cuantas evidencias se digan
encontrar justificando así teorías que niegan al Dios-Creador. La verdad del hecho es que
por fe creo que Dios creó y Él hizo todas las cosas buenas en El, por El y para El. Y porque Él
es Dios-Creador, el ser humano no puede existir fuera de la obra divina. Queramos o no,
existe una conexión especial entre Dios y su creación; la cual en un momento en el tiempo
fue interrumpida por el pecado, pero rescatada, restaurada y redimida por la gracia, amor y
entrega de Cristo Jesús, el Hijo de Dios.
Por gracias somos salvos, por medio de la fe, y no por obras para que nadie busque su
propia gloria. (Efe. 2:8)
Gracia y Paz a todos ustedes,
Pastora, Norma Aguilar.
My Parents Table (La mesa de mis padres) -Un programa para la comunidad
Muchos de ustedes ya conocen nuestro programa de cenas gratis para la comunidad aquí en
nuestra iglesia Ramsey; hasta la fecha hemos tenida 4 cenas, las cuales se realizan el último
Sábado de cada mes. Nosotros hemos servido a un aproximado de 32 personas en cada
cena. Estas personas usualmente no son miembros de la iglesia, pero los miembros de la
iglesia siempre están invitados a acompañarnos a estas cenas. Muchas gracias a nuestros
miembros de Ramsey, y un agradecimiento especial al Grupo de Agape por habernos
ayudados con la preparación y donaciones. Nos encantaría tener la ayuda adicional de parte
de ustedes. Como hemos mencionado antes las cenas se realizaran siempre cada último
sábado del mes. Si desea participar de alguna manera, por favor llamar a Sherry Fox al 3163377, esta es una gran oportunidad para disfrutar y proveer un acto de amabilidad hacia la
comunidad. Si usted no puede acompañarnos pero le gustaría hacer una donación por favor
sírvase hacer un cheque a nombre de Ramsey Memorial United Methodist Church y poner
“My Parent’s Table” en la parte baja del cheque. Su ayudar nos servirá de mucho, ya que sin
su apoyo este ministerio no sería posible.
