Fall Worship Series: Where is the Journey of Faith Leading Us?
Join the journey this fall as we experience a worship series connected to the ideas from Christianity for the Rest of Us
by Diana Butler Bass. We will travel on different paths:
Week one: How the path through the wilderness transforms us from tourists to pilgrims
Week two: Walking together: the people you meet along the journey of faith
Week three: Christian practices: different paths guide us to the Way
Week four: Destination Promised Land: Where the journey of faith leads us.
Spaces are still available for the Christianity for the Rest of Us study! Join us as we explore the ways that we
walk the journey of faith individually and as a community. See the Adult Faith Development section on
page 4 for more information,

Connection Point by Gayle Richard
We all have a Role in Welcoming Newcomers
In last month’s Banner, Pastor Chris wrote about evangelism and
the way that we can understand it as an invitation that says “I have
found a place that feeds my mind, my spirit and my need to serve
others. You are invited to join me anytime…”
As we extend that invitation and as we welcome newcomers and
returnees into our midst, it is important to understand that the
cultural realities of church attendance are shifting. Where once
“regular” or “active” attendance was defined as being present almost
three or four times a month, today people are engaging with worship online through sermons posted on our website, are taking the
next steps in their faith through mission and service opportunities,
and are walking the journey of faith together in a variety of ways.
Welcome Home!
The new way of welcoming people is to say “We’ve missed you –
welcome home!” instead of “Where have you been?” Instead of
focusing on their worship attendance, seek to make a connection,
find common ground that builds relationships, and celebrate their
attendance today, regardless of where they were last week, last
month or over the last year.
Connect—communicate, understand, link, hook, unite, meet, bring, fuse, gather together, relate, integrate, fellowship, join

Informal and Engaging Worship Saturday, October 11 at 5:00 PM
Crossroads is an intimate and informal worship experience that incorporates a variety of musical expressions-songs you might hear on Friday night at a club to those you’d expect to hear on Sunday morning:
Barrington United Methodist Church from contemporary Christian, to hymns, to country or Gospel. Through scripture, study and conversation, we seek to connect our faith with the way we live every day. This worship service is for everyone,
from those who are just beginning their journey of faith to those who have been pilgrims for some time.
Crossroads meets every second Saturday at 5:00 p.m. A fellowship opportunity follows every service with
an optional meal out at Rosati’s on Route 25 in Carpentersville. (117 N. Kennedy Drive)

Troop Mission Project Success
With the mailing of 231 treat
packs on September 15, the
Treats for the Troops Mission
Project exceeded the objective
of sending 200 gift packs to the
2nd Army Engineer Brigade in
The contributions objective for
food and funds of $5,000 was also
exceeded! In addition to food,
more than $6,818 of funds was received from a long list of contributors. This will permit another 100+ treat packs to be sent out
next week!
Most importantly, to pack these treats more than a dozen youth
and about 30 adults directly participated in this Mission outreach
program. An email has already been received from Afghanistan
thanking BUMC for this enthusiastic support of our troops.
I wanted to let you know that we received all the wonderful boxes
of goodies and they have been broken down into the zip lock bags
and distributed to all the Soldiers and Leaders in the organization.
Your contributions are greatly appreciated by all. Today we have the
luxuries to skype and call home more frequently than many of the
Soldiers before us and for that we are grateful but nothing brings
more joy and connection with home than opening a package that
was sent with love and care. Please relay our deepest and heartfelt
thanks to all the members of the Barrington United Methodist
Church for the actions of a true servants heart, sheading a little
light and joy to all parts of the world, and for reminding us of the
people we serve to protect, and most importantly giving us something to eat other than the Chow hall..... we are forever grateful
God Bless.
Very Respectfully,

Our Handgun Policy
You may have noticed the small signs at the church entrance indicating that we prohibit handguns in our building. This is necessary
because we have a preschool in our building and churches are not
included in the list of places where concealed carry is prohibited.
Owners of any statutorily prohibited area or private property, excluding residences, where the owner prohibits the carrying of firearms must
clearly and conspicuously post the Illinois State Police approved sign, in
accordance with 430 ILCS 66/1, at the entrance of the building, premises or real property. —Illinois State Police, http://www.isp.state.
