Hello all. We would like to invite you all to our Turkey Dinner on Nov. 10 from 4-7 p.m.

It will be held in the church basement which is not handicap friendly although we do have a banister on the stairway. We will have turkey and all the trimmings plus home-made desserts and drinks. Carry-out will be available, too. There is no set charge. It will be a Free Will Donation. Hope to see you then.

Me and my big mouth! Am I ever going to learn to quit sticking my foot in it? Sometimes I wished God had given me "strawberry" feet when he made me. Sure would taste better than my natural feet.

I don't suppose any of you have the problem of opening your mouth and sticking your foot in it. That can also be known as "speaking before engaging brain."

We all need to stop and think about what we're going to say before we even open our mouth. Our tongue is the most dangerous weapon we possess.

Once our words are spoken, they cannot be taken back. We can ask forgiveness, but it's very hard to forget angry or hurtful words.

If you need help in controlling your tongue, just get in your car and visit us at Bee Ridge Church. We have handicapped facilities available, and we do not have a dress code. So, you can't use the excuse that you don't have a nice outfit to wear. Dress blues and tennis shoes are fine.

Bee Ridge Church is located on North Kennedy's Crossing Rd. approximates 1.4 miles north of Northview High School. We have Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. for both children and adults. Church follows at 10:30 a.m.

We, also, have Kidz Church in the basement while adult church is going on upstairs. Y'all come. We'll be looking for you.

Blessing to everyone.

Do you sometimes feel that your trials and burdens are getting you down. As we reflect back on our life have you seen God working in it. In Romans 8:28 the scriptures tell us, "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose".

Remember, God is in control and involved in every area of our life. We may not understand the purpose for for these trials, but, God is in charge and has a purpose for everything.

God uses all our heartaches and burdens to teach us about the love, wisdom, and power of God.

He enables us to become the person God created us to be and to succeed in whatever God calls us to achieve. John 15:26 "Peace I leave with you, my peace, I give unto you not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Sunday School starts at 9:30 a.m., Church services are at 10:30 a.m. with sunday evening services at 6 p.m. Wednesday night Bible and prayer meeting at 7 p.m.

We are located one block off of 40 on South 59 North, Where S.O.S. (Service On Street) has graciously allowed us to use.

Carbon United Methodist Church

Don't forget to change the time back tonight! People lament that we are not on God's time. Well, actually we are TWO hours ahead of God's time. The time zones were set along longitudinal and latitudal lines. The line between Eastern and Central actually divides the state right through Indianapolis.

We in the west should be on Central time.

We were changed an hour ahead to Eastern time, and then "Daylight Savings Time" was tacked on top of the Eastern time. No wonder it is so dark when the kids get on the bus!

Our Thanksgiving service will be on Sunday, Nov. 11 (Armistice Day to us old-timers). There will be a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner served after the Worship Service.

The turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and rolls will be furnished. Everyone is asked to bring a salad, vegetable, or dessert and join us.

A joint Thanksgiving Service will be held combining the Carbon Methodist and Nazarene Churches on Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. This year it will be at the Methodist Church. These joint services are always so good.

It is great to get together with other churches to worship. There is always good singing, great fellowship, and inspiring messages.

The Administrative Board will meet on Monday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. The weather turned bad on us, so we did not get to seal the new ramp last week. We will probably have to wait until spring now.

On Tuesday, Nov. 27, the Town & Country United Methodist Men will hold their monthly meeting at our church. We are looking forward to having them.

Sunday morning worship is at 10 a.m. Sunday School is at 9 a.m. With the time changing, you have no excuse for sleeping in. We hope to see you at church.
