Open Invitation to Join the
Spiritual Direction Group
Facilitated by Shelley Lyksett, MDiv.
- Are you a person who gives a lot in the world and would like to be on the receiving end yourself?
- Do you ever yearn for a regular retreat but simply don’t have the time for a whole day or weekend retreat or get-away?
- Would you like a supportive circle with whom to explore some spiritual practices without feeling ill at ease or like everyone else is “better” than you?
- Would you enjoy some food for thought, inspirational themes, and shared experiences tending toward your spiritual life?
- Are you interested in finding time to check in with yourself and listen to where the Spirit might be in moving your life?
If so, then a spiritual direction group might be
just the thing for you!
This is my favorite kind of work
and I would like to take the things that I have been
learning and striving to do as a part of my
ministry and provide an opportunity at the UMC of Hudson.
We will meet for two hours on the first Sunday of May from either
4:00 – 6:00 or 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
If you are interested in signing up or finding out more about this opportunity,
please talk with Pastor Bruce and call the church office at 715.386.3921

SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAMS
September - May ... Ages Pre-K thru fifth grade will meet their teachers/guides in the fellowship hall at 9:15 a.m. Sixth grade through Senior High students will meet at the house for class. Classes run from 9:15-10:15 a.m. We ask parents to pick up Pre-K thru Fifth in the hallway in the lower level promptly at 10:15 a.m. There will be no classes the weekends of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and Easter.
SEPTEMBER ROTATION SUNDAY SCHOOL ... We will start the season off with David. David was a shepherd boy who becomes a king! God used David for good work despite all his flaws. We are all faced with giant problems or impossible situations. Stop for a minute and refocus. The story of David shows how his trust in God made him prevail. King Saul had to be persuaded by David to let him fight against the giant. Dressed in his simple tunic, not in the king's cumbersome armor, carrying a shepherd's staff, slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David approached Goliath. He was comfortable with his simple slingshot, a weapon he was skilled at using. David's faith in God caused him to look at the giant from a different perspective and conquer Goliath. Goliath was merely a mortal man defying an all-powerful God. David looked at the battle from God's point of view. If we look at challenges from God's perspective, we realize that God will fight for us and with us. We can then see more clearly and we can handle difficult situations more effectively. Don't worry about "wearing the King's armor." Just be yourself and use the familiar gifts and talents God has given you!!
