Caption:  You would never know to look at him that Ernie Pinneo is 91
years old.  What keeps him so young?  Ernie has been a faithful servant of
God, and this Bluff Point United Methodist Church, his entire life.  In
addition, Ernie has 15 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren!

BPUMC article for 9/18/13 by Kathy Burdick

We had a number of grandchildren, big & little, young & old, join us
for our church service on Sunday, September 8th, in honor of Grandparents’
Day.  It appeared as though EVERYONE enjoyed this day.  “Oh my, how
you’ve grown!” was the most frequently-heard exclamation of the morning. 
Our visitors handled themselves graciously and with smiles, and enjoyed
meeting some new friends.

Speaking of grace, we were able to honor one of the oldest members
of our congregation on this day.  Ernie Pinneo is 91 years old.  Ernie and his
late wife, Ina, were both incredibly faithful servants of this little church. 

Ernie has come to this Bluff Point Methodist Church his whole life! 
“Oh, probably since the age of 3 or 4,” he says.  Ernie has many many
memories of Bluff Point Methodist which he enjoys sharing.

Looking ahead:  The Yates Council of Churches will meet here at
Bluff on Monday, September 23rd.

There will be an Ad Council meeting on Monday, September 30th at
7:00 PM.     

The UMW gathers at the Antique Inn at Noon on Tuesdays.

Our church choir meets for rehearsals on Tuesday evenings at 7:00
PM, in the sanctuary of our church.  If you enjoy music and singing, then
this is the place for you!!

Participants at our September 22nd service, are:  Liturgist:  Carole
Clow; Greeters: Leah & Dick Dibble; Ushers: Bill & Delores Sutherland;
Scripture Reader: Sarah Stackhouse; Sunday School: Marguerite Miller;
Counters:  Ron Salyer and Ed Head; Nursery: Chris & Stacy Wyant.   The

Our thanks to Marilyn Sands and Laurie Prinzivalli for their gift of
fellowship after our worship this morning.

Happy Birthday wishes this week to Deb Orr (18), Jason Southworth

Please keep those who are serving our country in your thoughts and
