The children all found Pastor Judy very humorous as she had a naughty puppet that kept sticking his tongue out at them!  They learned a lesson in forgiveness.

Lots going on at BPUMC as we enter fall!

Our annual BPUMC Harvest Supper is November 1.  Mark your calendars and plan for a great dinner.  There is turkey with all of the trimmings, and an assortment of great pies.  The dinner begins at 4pm until all served.  Take outs available.  Tickets for all take outs and for adult eat in seating are $10.00; children's eat-in tickets ages 5-11 are $5.00. 

Our church will once again be involved with the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child.  We will be filling shoeboxes for this mission by November 9th.  If you want to fill an individual shoebox from yourself or your family, contact Laurie Prinzivalli.

December 9/10 are the days for Christmas for the Needy distributions in Penn Yan.  Bluff Point always has a large contingent of workers to help with this mission.  Don't forget to bring hats, mittens, socks and scarves for the tree which go to Christmas for the Needy.

Dick Davis, a long time member recently fell and broke his hip.  Cards and prayers are appreciated!  We passed around a beautiful prayer shawl made by Blanche Fingar with yarn donated by the Hassolt family for Dick. 

We will again be doing out annual nut sale.  Linda Folts is in charge of this effort. 

Pastor Judy's Sunday message centered around forgiveness.  She spoke of this in the children's and adult sermons.  We need to let go of anger, as pent up anger hurts yourself and your relationship with God.  We can not change other people, only ourselves.  Forgiving means that we let go, not that we forget.  We also should not hold a grudge when we feel we have been wronged.  The lesson was taken from the scripture:  Matthew 18: 21-35. 

What a busy time of year!  Please join us for worship on Sunday at 9am.  We are a faith-based church, and one that is filled with love and joy!  We also have an active Bible study group that anyone can come and join that is on Wednesdays at 10am.
