BAPTISM, CONFIRMATION, MEMBERSHIP   Next Baptism Service:  2 October, 8am , 930am and 11am Next Confirmation Service: 6 November, 8am , 930am and 11am   How do I become a member of the Methodist Church?   What is Membership? A member of a church is someone who is in 'fellowship' with that church.  Membership is partnership.  The Greek word in the New Testament is koinonia ; it implies partnership and an intention to work together to achieve a goal.   Our goal is discipleship; we work together to become and to make disciples.  We do this in response to Jesus' great commission in Matthew 28:19-20 - "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-20   A disciple is a student.  We are students of Jesus.  We want to learn to be more

Hi Table View Methodist Family, This Sunday there will be communion at 8, 930, 11 and 630pm !!! First of all I'd like to thank you for praying for and providing for our youth's visit to Marsh Memorial Home last Sunday.  The Youth and the Staff from Marsh said it was wonderful.  So we'll be sending our team through on the last Sunday of every month. Evening Service, This Sunday , 630pm We'll be starting our evening service up again.  Every Sunday except the last Sunday of the month. The evening service will be a bit different.  We're calling it 'Unplugged'. Unplugged means simple:  No dress code (even for the minister). Come in your bowling gear, beach gear... pajamas might be crossing a line, but you're welcome to wear slippers. Sometimes there won't be a sermon.  Just a Bible reading and some quiet time to pray about it. The instruments and music will be 'unplugged' (all acoustic.) We're going to use songboo
