FROM
PASTOR
LINDA
Dear Friends in Christ,

  The earth is the Lord’s and all the good things in it;
       the whole world, and those who live in it.
                          PSALM 24:1


       With the fall season upon us once again, the
magnificent color of changing leaves reminds us we are
surrounded by God’s glory. Take time to reflect on the
abundance of God’s blessings in your midst. The welfare
of the earth is something precious to God and to all of us,
for we are partners in caring for the earth as God’s
stewards. In addition to being stewards of the earth, we
are stewards of the Christian faith. We believe what we
do here at St. John’s U.C.C. is important, and we want
our ministries to continue for many years to come.
       Last year, St. John’s formed a Stewardship
Committee with the theme of “Stepping Up to the Plate”
with the purpose of challenging God’s people to be
committed stewards of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by their
generous financial giving to the church. The outcome
was positive as faith promise cards were turned in
showing an increase in financial giving to St. John’s.
       For 2010-2011, the Stewardship emphasis will
                            -3-
be “For where your treasure is your heart will be also”
(Matthew 6: 21).
       Martin Copenhaver, senior pastor of Wellesley
Congregational Church, has some wise thoughts
concerning Jesus words. Martin challenges us to give
and spend where we want our hearts to be, and then let
our hearts catch up. He says don’t just give to those
things you care about. Give to the things you want to
care about. Ask yourself, “If I were the sort of person I
long to be, then what would I do? How would I spend my
money?” Then, do what you would do if you were that
sort of person. Put your treasure where you want your
heart to be. And if you do, says Jesus, your heart will go
there. If you want to care more about the kind of car you
drive, buy an expensive one. If you want to care more
about property values, remodel your house. But, if you
want to grow in your faith bring an offering to God,
wherever your treasure is, your heart is sure to follow.
       Consider these words over these next weeks as you
ponder and pray about your giving to the ministries of St.
John’s U.C.C.


                         In God’s service with you,


                         Pastor Linda

               MISSION STATEMENT
                 Adopted February 2, 1997

 We, the Congregation of St. John's United Church of Christ,
 building on the heritage of the Church as we move into the
next century, hereby set forth the following as a statement of
                         our purpose.

                          Worship
       As a Congregation we strive to worship God,
 and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through traditional
                 and alternative methods.
 The celebration of the sacraments affirms in this place the
   ecumenical unity and inclusiveness in Christ's Church
                        throughout.

                   Community Involvement
 We strive to be an active contributor and participant in the
life and activities of the Richlandtown area and surrounding
     communities. Following the example of Jesus Christ,
   we endeavor to minister to the needs of all people in the
                           community.

                    Christian Education
We strive to provide an opportunity for persons of all ages to
             teach and learn about God's Word.

                         Membership
  St. John's U.C.C. openly welcomes anyone interested in
  becoming a Member of this church family and eagerly
 accepts new Members through confirmation, reaffirmation
                of faith and letters of transfer.

                         Stewardship
  We, the Congregation, acknowledge our responsibility to
provide the financial support for the maintenance of Church
  facilities and on-going programs as well as benevolence
    within the community and the Church's wider mission.

          RICHLANDTOWN
   FOURTH ANNUAL COMMUNITY DAY
       Saturday, September 18th was Richlandtown‟s
Community Day. This was St. John‟s second year
having a booth. It was a complete success and all
who attended enjoyed themselves - our booth was
extremely popular… children were able to make God‟s
Eye‟s or puppet people or even decorate a flower pot
and take a plant home with them. Many thanks to
Mindy for rooting and potting the plants! They were a
popular item at our table! We also had a lot of serious
inquiries about St. John‟s and our Sunday school.
Thanks to Pastor Linda, Karen Bilger, Courtney Weeks,
Katie Yerger and Karen King for manning our booth.
          Mark your 2011 calendar for next year’s
        5th Annual Richlandtown Community Day!

             ALL SAINTS SUNDAY

The St. John’s Quilters…
Don‟t forget to buy a chance from the
Quilters. Stop in and see the beautiful
quilt that they are working on.
Chances are only $1 each or 6 for $5. The
Raffle Drawing will be held on Saturday,
November 20th at the Christmas Bazaar!

         Our Harvest Home Service
       Our Annual Harvest Home Service is today,
September 26th. As we thank God for the fruit of the
harvest, we acknowledge our dependence both on
God and on other human beings. Please place your
offering in the designated envelopes (Enclosed please
find an envelope to provide your special offering)
which will go to Phoebe Richland Health Care Center
to help assist them in their ‘Springhouse Park Project
Campaign’ (an outdoor recreational site).


    HEIFER PROJECT INTERNATIONAL
       It‟s time to donate all of those spare pennies
(and other coins) filling up your pockets and change
jars for the Heifer Project. We will again be donating
money to purchase animals. Pennies will be collected
until our Thank Offering Service on November 21st.
Please put your pennies and coins in the „ark‟ in the
                         -9-
front of the church. For any questions contact Katie
Yerger.
      Some people think so little of a penny that they
wouldn‟t bother to pick one up. Someone figured out
that 16 pennies laid side by side equal one foot. Since
there are 5,280 feet in a mile, a mile of pennies would
equal $844.80.
  Please help by donating to this cause to stop hunger!


             The WOW group would like
       the congregation to save plastic bags
  for their project of making plastic crochet bags
   and water bottles for the Christmas Bazaar.
             If you have any questions,
     please see Mary Gillen or Linda Lindsay.
                     Thank you.

               St. John’s Website
       As you have heard, St. John's has contracted
with a website developer, The ConnectedWord, to
create a new website for us. This effort had started in
August. To-date, the first round of proofs was reviewed,
and feedback was given. The next round of proofs
should be delivered by September 24th, and we're
hoping to make our final choice. At that point, our
information will be transferred from our current site. So
stay tuned for our new website in early October.
        And yes, the address will stay the same…

          St. John’s Restroom Update
      We are waiting to proceed because of some
questions that came up that had to be answered.

is best. We have an answer on the vanity which
involved getting the proper faucet and sink cut-outs.
Look for us to start in about a week.

            USHERS AND ACOLYTES
       Please note, if you are an usher and also an
acolyte on any given Sunday, please be at the church
at least 20 minutes before the service so that you can
light the candles. The order of lighting should be the
Christ candle first (the large candle on the landing)
then the altar candles. At the end of the service the
altar candles should be extinguished first and then the
Christ candle is extinguished.
       Ushers should return to their seats after giving the
offering plate to the pastor or acolyte, this is so they
can be seated for the Offertory Prayer in unison.



                  Communication
       All Committee Chairpersons, please give reports
or any information on current meetings to the Pastor or
Church Secretary by Wednesday for the next bulletin
and by the 20th of the month for the newsletter. E-mail
us at stjuccrichtown@enter.net.
       Also a large calendar has been placed on the
Narthex bulletin board.          People are strongly
encouraged to fill in their planned meetings/events on
the calendar for everyone to see.


                        Prayer
       Prayer is not a trial balloon we send up to see if
God is there. It is an opportunity He has given us to
communicate with Him. Please allow our Prayer Chain
to join you in prayer. The information you give will be
kept confidential. For prayer needs or for membership,
please contact Marcella Kulp at 215-536-5625.


                           - 16 -
          The Prayer Shawl Ministry
       Do you know someone who would be warmed in
body, mind and spirit by receiving a prayer shawl? If
so, please contact either Barbara Fehnel or Mary Gillen.
They have prayer shawls available. Not only are the
shawls a wonderful blessing to those who receive them,
but they are wonderful blessings to those who make
them!

  Use of the Church and/or Church Property
 Any activities that need to be „booked‟ at St. John‟s
 or borrowing of Church Property i.e. tables, chairs, or
   other items must go through the Church Office –
      this is so that we have no conflict of interest.
     Thank you in advance for your consideration.

             -Our Church Elevator-
     When exiting the elevator please make sure the
door is completely closed & latched. If the doors on all
floors are not closed, the elevator cannot be called
from another floor.

           Are You A Scrap Booker?
     We are still looking for a talented, dedicated,
scrap booker to put together books of St. John‟s history.
If you think you are up to the task, please contact the
Church Office.


A Big thanks to Everyone who came out
          and donated blood!!!
       And a special thank you to
  Mary Musselman & Mary Hardcastle
         for all of their efforts!
                          - 17 -
       Update on Christian Education
       Rally Day was combined with our summer-end
picnic this year. The children joined in the service and
received a blessing from Pastor Linda instead of
communion. The kids had a blast participating in the
fish pond and they enjoyed the vacation bible school
music that was played during the cake walk. What a
great kick-off to our first day of Sunday school.
       Please mark your calendars for our Halloween
Party. The party will again be held at the King
residence on October 23rd. There will be crafts,
dancing, games, food, and a hayride! If you plan on
attending there will be a sign-up sheet for sides,
desserts, and snacks in the narthex. The Christian
Education Committee will provide BBQ and hotdogs.
       The Heifer Project has again begun! Please
collect your pennies and drop them off in the front of
the church. Money received will be used to purchase
animals that will be given to families around the world.


                   OUR DAILY BREAD
             September through November
         Now available at the end of the pews.
If you would like to make a donation to help defray the
cost and support a meaningful ministry, it would be
appreciated. Please see Hazel Kramer to make your
donation. Thank you!

           2010 Fall Rummage Sale
  Benner Hall – October 7th-8th – 9 am-6 pm
     The Fall Rummage Sale is scheduled for Thursday,
October 7th and Friday, October 8th. Donations of
good, used clothing, furniture, household items, etc.
may be brought to Benner Hall on Sunday, October 3rd
                         - 18 -
from NOON until 5:00 pm. As in past years, much help
will be needed throughout the week, including men to
set up tables, transport items from the church and pick
up rummage on Sunday preceding the sale. Men will
also be needed on Friday at 5:30 to pack up the
remaining rummage and haul items back to the
church.
       Workers will be needed during the week to sort
and price rummage and to staff the sale on Thursday
and Friday. We have always had a very dedicated
group who has helped with the sale for many years, but
it would be great to see some new people take part in
the activities. Also, any monetary donations towards
the $250 Hall rental would be appreciated.
       Luncheon items will be available on Thursday
and Friday. The menu will include Hamburger BBQ,
Pork BBQ, Vegetable Soup, Chicken Orzo Soup, Hot
Dogs, Baked Beans, Root Beer Floats, Soda, Iced Tea,
Hot Coffee & Tea and Bottled Water. We will also need
donations of baked goods such as brownies, cookies,
cakes, etc. for both days.
       The Budget & Finance Committee has
challenged the congregation to raise significant funds
for the remainder of the year and the Fall Rummage
Sale is a major event towards that goal! The success of
the Sale depends on all of you!
       If you able to help or have any questions, please
contact Eleanor Fly at 215-536-8250 or Bev Kuhn at 215-
536-0418.
                Food for Friends
      This Wednesday, September 29th, St. John‟s
Caring Church Committee is responsible to serve those
in need at the Food for Friends dinner. The gathering is
held at the Richland Friends Meetinghouse in
Quakertown. This is always a good time and an
                         - 19 -
opportunity for service as well as being reunited with
our friends. Volunteers are always needed. The sign-up
sheet is posted on the bulletin board. This Food for
