Hi Table View Methodist Family,

This Sunday we look forward to a visit from Rev Michelle Schrader who serves at the Central Methodist Mission in Cape Town (Just next to Green Market Square).  I will lead worship and Michelle will preach at 8, 930 and 11am on the topic:

Dear TVMC Family

We would like to send our outmost appreciation to the congregation for helping us with donations for our girls hamper drive. We donated 25 hampers to young girls in Lingelethu, Malmesbury during our mini-circuit consultation which took place on 1-3 September. We would like this initiative to be an ongoing thing as Gods work never stops.

Deuteronomy 15:10 
"Give freely to the poor person, and do not wish that you didn't have to give. The Lord your God will bless your work and everything you touch."

Regards
Wesley Guild (Table View Society)

Poor Fund / Love Boxes

On Communion Sundays we take up an offering for our Poor Fund / Love Fund.  These funds are spent on behalf of the congregation by the Communion Stewards and the Minister.  On principal we use the money to buy basic food and toiletries to make up love boxes for those in need.  Although these boxes do not contain luxuries they can help a family to meet their basic needs for a week.

If you are in need, or if you know of someone who is in need we would like to help you by providing a love box.  Please speak to the communion stewards / helpers at your respective service, your requests will be treated in the strictest confidence:

8am - Anne Stolke, Maureen Williams, Maria Kobrinowski
930am - Tamra Dierdricks, Cheryl and Hilton Madden, Edmond Deane
11am - Pumla Hashe, Johannah Keikelame
"So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith." - Galatians 6:10
Junior and Senior Youth This Friday
Junior Band Practice will happen at 5pm, Junior Youth at 530pm and Senior Youth at 730pm.
God bless,
Gus
