Pastor Marc Brown













A voice cries:



“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.


Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.



And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,

for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Isaiah 40:3-6


In less than a month, it will be Christmas! To be honest, I have mixed emotions about this at this
point and I am not certain I am ready for this yet. I love the reason for this season, but there are so

many distractions. My guess is that people in Jesus day said the same thing.

The prophet Isaiah prophesied that Jesus was coming 700 years before Jesus was born. He tried to

prepare them well in advance so their hearts were ready for the coming of Immanuel. Yet when
you read the story of Jesus’ birth in the scriptures there was not a huge crowd waiting. The process
of waiting and not receiving and other factors of life left most moving on and disregarding the event
that would have the greatest impact on them and the world. We all say we want God to come close
and confirm his love for us, but the question is will we be ready when he does?


Advent is a season of preparation to get ready for God to come close. Yes we celebrate his birth and
his coming already, but we are called to get ready for when Jesus is coming again. If he came today,
would you be ready? Would you recognize him and would he recognize you? In this busy season of
meetings, gatherings and normal activity, may we take the time to prepare our hearts for God’s very
presence. May we be ready to respond like the shepherds. May we be willing to make sacrifices

like the wise men and journey a great distance because we don’t want to miss him. May we be like
Mary, willing to trust that God can do the impossible and use us to do it.

I want to remind you that we will be worshipping for the month of December with one service each

Sunday at 10am. Come as we sing a song to Bethlehem and prepare our hearts to welcome the
King of Kings. Our Walk to the Manger will Sunday, December 22. This is a day where we take a
special offering to bless others. This year we will be blessing: Cunningham Children’s Home, Inter-
national Friendship, Inc. and Restoration Urban Ministries. These ministries help people to encoun-
ter God’s presence here and now. Finally, we will be celebrating Christmas Eve at 4pm, 8pm and

11pm where we come to worship and praise God for his love for us.

I have told you and myself – Jesus is coming, so let’s get ready!

Dear Savoy United Methodist Church Family,



With the holiday season soon upon us, we are
asking you to take time to remember our Pastor and staff, who faithfully perform

the pastoral and administrative functions of our church.


With this in mind we are collecting money to present to Pastor Marc Brown,
Rebeccah Anderson, Gail Taylor, Cecil Billingsley, and Briana McDade for our staff
Christmas gifts. We hope you will consider this and pray about it as you determine

an appropriate amount.


There are a couple of ways you may give:
-You may place a check or cash in the offering, clearly marking in the memo

area "Pastor and staff gift".
-Send or drop your gift off at the church office, clearly indicating “Pastor and

staff gift”.

We would like to have donations collected by Thursday, December 19.


Thank you for your generous support of our Pastor and staff.


Sincerely,


Sybil Phillips, on behalf of the Staff/Parish Relations Committee


2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not
reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

The Missions Team


All-Church Food Packing Service Project
On Sunday, December 29, we will participate as a church family in a project after the 10:00 worship service to pack
food for distribution by Midwest Mission. This project will be similar in nature to the food packing we did in the
summer of 2018. Please mark your calendar and plan to serve as we work to meet a need for people in the midst of
disaster or crisis situation. All ages and abilities are welcome to serve - regardless of experience!

Thanksgiving Baskets—Thank You!

In this season of giving thanks, I, along with the Missions Team, want to thank you for your generous support of the
Thanksgiving Baskets ministry. Between the Craft Fair and your recent donations, we have raised a total of
$7,989.53! Also, we were expecting Thanksgiving Baskets to cost $43, but the price came in at $42.30 per basket.
We want to acknowledge that County Market and Junior help to make this ministry happen and are grateful for their
support. The total cost for the baskets was $6,768, which means we can make a $1221.53 donation to the Savoy
UMC food pantry to help support our ongoing food ministry after Thanksgiving.
1Chronicles 16:34 states, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.” God is so
good to us and has blessed us in so many ways. Thank you for sharing some of those financial gifts with us to make
this ministry happen. Others in our community and in this season will give praise to the Lord as they have encounter
his love and provision through a Thanksgiving Basket.

Please know I thank God for you and your support of this ministry.
Blessings,
Marc

A Christmas Prayer

Lord, we pause


amidst the busyness and excitement of

Christmas to thank You for coming low as

a baby in a Bethlehem manger to rescue


us from sin and offer us salvation.

Your gift to us is greater than any present

wrapped and placed under a tree.


We thank You and Worship You and

commit to seeking You first

this day,

this season,


this year.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.




























The SUMC Prayer Team meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at
5pm for a time of prayer. Please join us as we celebrate the discipline of prayer. If

there is a better time and day for you, please let us know.

Transforming REAL kids into REAL



followers of Jesus.




How many Kings stepped down from their thrones, how many lords have abandoned their homes?

How many greats have become the least for me? And how many gods have poured out their hearts
to romance a world that is torn all apart, How many fathers gave up their sons for me? Only one did

that for me. This is part of a song from Down here and Shawn McDonald . I encourage you to look
it up on youtube. It envelops the true meaning of Christmas. What a great, loving, kind God we

have. There are still struggles and mountains in our life. Yes, that is true. But, God is walking that
road with us. Hold on to that hope. Hold on to his peace. Hold on to his wisdom. Hold on to

trusting him. Give him your hand and hold tight. I am a visual person and I saw a picture on
facebook of Jesus kneeling in front of a little girl who was holding on tight to her little teddy bear.

Jesus was reaching out his one arm asking for her to give it to him. She looked determined to hold

her little teddy bear. She could not see, but with his other arm hidden behind his back he had a
HUGE teddy bear he wanted to give her. We are like that little girl holding on to what we have (even

our struggles) and Jesus is saying “ give it to me, I have something better for you”. Let’s give him our
hearts every day, a hundred times a day. That is all he wants from us. What a gift we have to give

him this Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all the days of our lifes.



th
No Sunday school on December 29

Sunday school in December is at 10:00 AM each week

Trunk or Treat results

th
As you know, the original date, Saturday, October 26 had to be cancelled due to bad weather and
we were miraculously able to move it to the next day with many, if not more, trunks participating.
The families were lined up against the building at 1:40 patiently waiting for us to be ready at 2:00.

Pastor Marc and his crew made 600 hot dogs for this event. We had 500 in attendance and people
were grateful for the hot dogs and the friendly trunks giving their children candy. Children played
on the playground, they went on the Savoy fire truck, families and friends visited in the eating area,

and all the “Savoy information bags” were passed out to parents as they stopped by that table on
their way to the trunks. Prayer requests were given and are already being prayed for. Special thanks

to Pastor Marc & his family, Sam and Savoy Fire station, Briana and Zach, Leeann Smith, Vera Maase
and all the trunkers and all the donators of candy. Reminds me of words to a song, “Holy Spirit you

are welcome here, come fill this place and …”

Happy Birthday Jesus Party

th
Friday, December 6 from 5:30-8:00pm families of ALL ages are welcome to come and participate in
celebrating the birthday of our King. You do not have to be a child to enjoy the evening we have

planned. We have games for toddlers to adults. We’ll have a picture booth, Karaoke, and so much
more. Light dinner will be served at 5:30 and we will end the evening with a special birthday cake.

Bring friends, neighbors, people you work with, etc. The entire evening will be all about the events
that led to the birth of Jesus. This is no cost to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Operation Christmas Child – 22 boxes were packed and

specially shipped by Sunday school children (Missions paid

for the shipping and tracking of those boxes.) Another 203
were filled by our congregation. They were prayed over
th
during November 17 services. Chick Chat group was kind
enough to deliver them again as they have for the last few

years. Thank you to all the ladies who helped!

Milestone brochure

I want to keep reminding you of what is to come. In January, our ministry plans on communicating

this program to the congregation in person, with brochures, speaking before services, etc. Our first
st
st
milestone of 2020 will be in February for 1 graders. 1 graders will receive an apron with the
words “serving Jesus” embroidered on it. It will take place during the services on a date yet to be
st
determined. Both 1 graders and their parents will come to the front of the church to receive a
special blessing as our children continue to grow in Christ.

th
Fleece blanket night and informal chili cook off – Friday, January 17 from 6-8 or 8:30 pm. We have
a great opportunity to share chili as we make fleece blankets for the Canteen Run. We will be doing
an informal “chili cook off”. Anyone is invited to make their chili and bring it to this event in their

crock pot. We can taste and enjoy the different styles of chili made by others. ( I will provide sour
cream, crackers, macaroni and drink). Families will come and make fleece blankets for those in
need. Children understand those basic needs and have compassion. So, together we can make a

blanket and fill out a card to be presented with the blanket to remind that person that they are

loved by Jesus and prayed for. Parents do the cutting and the children do the knotting. We ask that,
if you are able, that you bring 2, two yard pieces of fleece which will make the blanket. Bring your
good scissors to cut the fleece. We would LOVE donations of 2, two yard pieces of fleece so we can

make more blankets or provide fleece for those who could not bring any, but want to make a
blanket. Donations are being accepted now and can be left inside the office by Briana’s desk. There

is no cost to attend, just come ready to have food, fun, laughter, and the use of your hands.
Children 6 and younger will be provided free childcare. To RSVP for childcare contact me at
th
[email protected] before January 10 .

appreciative. It’s one way of letting them know that they are loved and cared about by us and by their
God. Remember, choose a tag, purchase the gift and return it to the church unwrapped. Wrapping paper, ribbons,
bows and tape are also good gift items. Anyone wishing to participate in the wrapping session should call
Cunningham to find out the dates that this will take place. UMW will not meet in January.

Home Friendship Team

For many the Christmas season is a time of isolation and loneliness.
Because of the change in weather, schedules, and other factors people

wonder if they are seen and if anyone cares for them, including God.
Christmas is the season where we are confronted with the reality that
God sees us and comes for us – Emmanuel!

You are invited to be a part of God’s ongoing ministry by providing
Christmas cards for those who are unable to physically attend worship
or need to be reminded of God’s presence in this season. There is a
list of individuals who would appreciate cards on the Welcome Center. Please prepare your cards and bring them

back to the church and put them in the box. The cards will be sorted and then delivered to the individuals on the list
before Christmas. This is an opportunity for families, small groups, and individuals to allow the love of God to flow
through you to bless others and you at the same time.

Please bring cards to the church by Monday, December 16. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Marc or
the church office.









Food Pantry News for December


Our food pantry’s supplies of cereal, soup, and vegetables have
been replenished. Thank you so much, SUMC! And extra special
thanks to Little Hearts and Hands for donating over three HEAPING
grocery carts full of food just in time for distribution during this
Christmas season! Our shelves “over runneth” so that we can serve
God by feeding the hungry. Thank you, thank you!


Shopping List for December
• Pasta sauce

• Jelly

• Paper towels and toilet tissue


Food Pantry Update
• Food deliveries-- From October 25, food was delivered to 10 families (12 adults, 12 children) with referrals from
empty tomb and SUMC members.

• For Canteen Run-- About 150 sack lunches are made every week.
• Shadowwood Distribution-- On November 5, food was distributed to 15 families, a total of 46 people.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such
things there is no law.

Are you displaying these all the time, or even half of
the time? I have a confession to make, as for me, not
so much. I didn’t even know forbearance was in the
dictionary. I looked it up to find out how to use it in a
sentence, (you know what you’ve seen at spelling
bee’s): He was a man who could not forbear from
searching for the soul, from following its workings.


We served 106 of our guests.

Our current needs are:
Socks
Long and short sleeved shirts
Sizes medium-3 x-large men’s underwear

If you would like to make a financial contribution, you can make a check out to The Salvation Army and indicate
that it goes to the Canteen Run. If you would like a presentation from us, contact [email protected] We
are on Facebook, please like us. You can also follow us on Twitter, Barb Davies @cucanteenrun.


Servants of Jesus Christ,

Barb Davies on behalf of Canteen Run
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools
