VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Our theme this year is Shipwrecked : Rescued by Jesus.  We will be meeting from 5:00 to 8:00 pm on June 18th through 22nd.
  At Shipwrecked, kids will discover that Jesus rescues them!  Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs
, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God's love, and test out Sciency-Fun gizmos they'll take home and play with all summer long.  Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily. 
Kids at Shipwrecked VBS will join a missions effort to provide seeds for families in Haiti to grow food.
Shipwrecked is for kids from K through 5th grades.  For more information, call 903-473-2411.


Fellowship Movie Night
We will be having a twice monthly movie night during the summer months, beginning at 6 pm on June 8th.  The second one for June will be on the 29th, but thereafter, will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays.  We plan on presenting some really great faith-based movies, so plan to join us.


Fellowship Game Night
During the summer months, join us for Game Night on the 3rd Friday of each month at 6 pm.  Bring along your favorite games and a snack food and plan of a lot of fun.


COOKBOOKS Still Available
We still have "A Taste of Love" Methodist Country cookbooks left, so if you want one, contact Mary White, Nancy Krantz or the church office.  The price is $10.  If you choose to have it mailed to you, the fee is $7.20 per book.  These are great for yourself or for gift giving.  If for a gift, they can be mailed directly to the recipient if you would like.
These cookbooks were a collaboration of some of the great cooks of Emory UMC, Edom UMC, and Mt. Sylvan UMC sharing their favorite recipes.  Everyone knows we Methodists love to eat, and these recipes will make your mouth water and your stomach growl.   With approximately 300 recipes to choose from, you're sure to find one that will tickle your pallet.
Hurry, before they are all gone!


Church Library News
New Additions: NEARING HOME by Billy Graham

NEARING HOME is full of great advice on life, faith, and finishing well. You do not have to read the chapters consecutively. Chapter 5, "Fading Strength but Standing Strong" I found to be the most outstanding. The hidden perils of aging are discussed such as fear, illness or growing disability, depression, loneliness, anger, financial stress, and becoming so absorbed by our worries that we only think about one-self. Dr. Graham states "When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice."

Available in church library in paperback or audio book.


Study Opportunities
Women's Bible Study, each Wednesday morning at 10:00 am. We are currently studying books of the Apocrypha. This is a structured, insightful study.

Emory Methodist Women Book Study
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month in the Library.  Beginning in November, we will be studying "In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day" by Mark Batterson.

Book Club will meet on third Sunday evening once a month in Fellowship Hall. Each month, a different book/author will be featured. Meetings will be held at Emory UMC Fellowsip Hall or Alba UMC.


EMW News - Emory Methodist Women

Mary White opened our meeting with prayer and a devotion. This was followed by a wonderful lunch prepared by Kathy Kuba and Jerrilee Morrow.

The fish fry went great as well as the fellowship game night. The garage sale was held and even with one day of rain we still made around $800.

If you still need a cookbook for a gift or even for yourself we still have a few left!

Emmaus is a 72-hour experience where you will meet with Jesus, walk with Him, talk with Him, and forever be changed by Him.
