Six Key Financial Principles.  On October 23 in worship we will look closely at biblical principles of money management and learn how they apply to our daily lives. We will review some common pitfalls and cultural traps and discover how to avoid them. We also will receive a reminder of the Six Key Financial Principles. (Hint: This useful tool, which is designed for all of us, can be especially helpful in training youth and young adults as they begin to develop lifelong habits in personal finance.) We hope you will take time this week to read these principles and Scriptures. They will make a great table devotional for you and your family. By practicing these biblical principles, all of us can find greater simplicity, contentment, generosity, and joy for our lives. Also, be sure to check out the financial management resources on the web at:

The choir is always welcoming new members, especially now as we are starting to work on music for the Advent/Christmas season.

Carolyn Gravely’s sisters recently suffered a devastating fire in their Elizabethton home.  Perhaps you, your small group, Sunday School class, etc., would like to help them.  A list of items immediately needed is on the bulletin board outside the church office.  If you would like to make a donation to them, you can place a check in the offering plate payable to BCUMC with “Gravely sisters” in the memo line.

Wednesday night Fellowship Meal, 6:00 pm, in the Fellowship Hall.  Our Wednesday night Adult Program is a study of the book Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity.

On November 6 in worship, we will celebrate All Saints Day, in which we especially remember those people special to us who have died since All Saints Day last year (November 1, 2010).  We will call out their names in a time of remembrance in both worship services.  If you would like us to name a person special to you who has died since the previous All Saints Day, please contact the church office with the spelling of the person’s name by Wednesday, November 2.
