Sunday, September 24, was a great day! For over a year we had planned for this day, in which to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of New Jerusalem Lutheran Church. Two hundred and sixty one people worshipped at the Service of Holy Communion and Thanksgiving. We began the services, outside at 10:15 am, as a large group picture was taken and we laid the cornerstone containing new items from 2006, along with the items placed there in 1949. Led by the cross, the congregation made their way into the sanctuary, followed by the Chancel and Praise Choirs, the pastors and the Handbell Choir. The pastors who participated in the Service were The Rev. Dr. Larry Yoder who offered the prayers of the Church, The Rev. Dr. Boyce Whitener who read the scripture lessons, former Pastors L. E. Cumbee and Gilmer Miller, and current Pastor Randall Cauble who assisted with the distribution of Holy Communion. The Rev. Philip Tonnesen, assistant to eh Bishop of the N.C. Synod served as the presiding minister and preacher. Beautiful music was offered by a joint choir made up of the Chancel and Praise Choirs and the Handbell Choir. It was truly a wonderful day as we offered praise and thanksgiving to God for his guidance and support over these past 100 years! It was a day that will not soon be forgotten. Following the Service, around 250 people enjoyed a catered meal in the Fellowship Hall. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make this day a major success. Many people worked long and hard to make this day, September 24, 2006 a special, special day. AND, IT CERTAINLY WAS!

New members will be received on Reformation Sunday, October 29. If you would like to join New Jerusalem, or know of someone who might like to join our fellowship, please speak to Pastor Cauble as soon as possible. You may also invite others to join, or simply come with you to church. Many people do not come to church because they simply are not invited. Several of our young people will receive their first communion on October 29. Classes are now being held to prepare them to receive the Sacrament of the Altar. As we enter our second 100 years, let us be an inviting congregation, with doors wide open to receive new people for Christ. I challenge you to be an inviter! “WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO GROW IN OUR PERSONAL FAITH THROUGH WORSHIP AND CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND TO PUT THIS FAITH INTO ACTION BY SHARING AND WITNESSING FOR CHRIST IN WORDS AND DEEDS.” OUTDOOR SERVICES IN OCTOBER October 8 – 8:30 am – Outdoor Chapel October 22 – 8:30 am – Outdoor Chapel (The October 22nd Outdoor Service will be the last one of the year. Beginning in December, we will hold early services at 8:15 am in the Sanctuary, on the First and Third Sundays.) BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS Saturday, October 7, 2006, 11:00 am. Pastor Cauble will conduct a blessing of the animals on Saturday, October 7, at `11:00 a.m. For obvious reasons, this service will be held outside. You may bring your animals (please no snakes) to the church for a blessing. Children, without an animal, may bring a favorite stuffed animal for blessing. This is an ancient service, set around the time of the birthday of St. Francis of Assisi, October 4, and lived from 1182-1226. As we hear in Sundays and Seasons, “Francis had a spirit of gladness and gratitude for all of god’s creation. This commemoration has been a traditional time to bless pets and animals, creatures Francis called his brothers and sisters.” PASTOR CAUBLE ON VACATION Pastor Cauble will be on vacation, October 9-15. The Rev. Dr. Boyce Whitener will be on standby for Pastor Cauble. He can be reached at 465-3604.

Congratulations to Mrs. Evelyn Smith who was recognized for her many years of service to the Lord and to the Church on September 17. Mrs. Smith was also recognized as an Honorary Life Member of the Lutheran Men in Mission by the New Jerusalem Lutheran Men.

We hope to build a library of useful books for those in need. If you would like to donate a title from the list below in memory or honor of a loved one, we will place a bookplate on the front page with your name and the name of your loved one. . Men and Grief by C. Staudacher . Swallowed by a Snake by Tom Golden .Transcending Loss, Ashley David Prend .Companion Through Darkness Stephanie Ericsson .The Mourning Handbook, Helen Fitzgerald .The Courage to Grieve, Judy Tatelbaum TO THOSE BORN 1930 – 1970! (SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!) TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s!! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets an when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking. As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat. We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank koolade made with sugar, but we weren’t overweight because WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And we were OK. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all. No 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or chat rooms…WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them! We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents. We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them! Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. IMAGINE THAT! The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! If YOU are one of them….CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives – for our own good. And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave (and lucky their parents were. Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it??!! The quote of the month is by Jay Leno: With hurricanes, tornadoes, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, “Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?” For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…go ahead and ignore this. For the rest of us…pass this on. CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES The Church Council of New Jerusalem met on Sunday, September 10 at 6:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
