        “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” - Proverbs 16:9


        Prayer - "Lord, We know it is You and only You who possess the power to direct our steps. We pray that our plans would align with your plans for our lives. We know we can trust that the plans you have for our lives are good. We pray that you will direct each and every step we make, allowing us to be influenced by your Holy Spirit and grace. May we trust the plan you have for our lives each day. May our steps  glorify you in all the things we say and do for your honor and glory. In the name of Jesus we give you thanks. Amen"

          Online Worship This Sunday

          Don’t miss our worship service this Sunday morning at 10:00am, (note the time change) and live on Zoom! We will also have a Kids Corner with Lisa Mountain you won’t want to miss. Pastor Matt will be bringing a message from Psalm 121, “What Are We Looking For?” Go to the calendar on our website at fumccollingswood.org/calendar to access the Zoom link and meeting ID. After the service is over, you will be able to view a recording from our website (www.fumccollingswood.org) or our Facebook Group (www.facebook.com/groups/CollingswoodFUMC)

          1. Please put a hyper link to the zoom meeting in the calendar on the website. It was very difficult to connect to the service without it.
          2. The hyperlink is there, in multiple places. If you click on the event, it opens a quick view window of the details, but if you click on the event header in that quick view, it takes you to the actual event page where the clickable link is. Unfortunately that’s how it’s set up in Faithlife, and at this point we can’t change how it’s set up. I can contact Faithlife though, and see if this can be modified in the future.
        2. Here is this week’s Mid-Week Devotion. Thanks again, Pastor Leon, for being so faithful in encouraging us through God’s Word each week!

            A Powerful Prayer


            “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” - Colossians 4:2


            Paul gave this prayer challenge to those in the Colossian church, and at the end of this powerful letter, he encouraged the church. This is still important today! We need to devote ourselves to prayer! Paul’s letter tells us not only how we should be living, but also how we should be praying for others by being watchful. Paul gives us a great example of what it looks like to be praying for others, knowing that God can make a difference as we live out His love in our world. This scripture came to mind as the storm came this week, and many were praying for Joy Evans when her surgery was scheduled. Many were home praying, seeking God on her behalf. I was wondering if anyone would brave the storm and join me on the porch at noon. We had nine the day before. And right at 11:55 I heard someone praying quietly on my front porch. I knew at that moment, not only on the porch, but in many other places there were people being watchful and thankful, knowing God is in charge, praying on behalf of Joy Evans and her surgery yesterday. What a privilege it is to be a part of the family of God, knowing that God hears us and answers our prayers no matter where we are!  Let’s continue to carry out these words together.
