MEMBERS OF THE BROOKHAVEN ZooMC WANT TO TRAVEL WITH YOU

ZOO ANIMALS 2.jpg

We want to try out a fun idea for the summer.  Here are members of Brookhaven ZooMC:   Jonah the seal, Daniel the lion, Roberto the rhino and Elly the elephant.  We want to invite you to take one of them along with you during your summer travels.  Then take a picture of them enjoying your special location:  maybe at the beach, maybe at a park, maybe somewhere exotic, maybe somewhere every day.   Just take a photo of them having a great time.  We’ll develop a special bulletin board and post the pictures of summer fun with the Brookhaven Zoomc gang.  Be sure to let us know where the picture is taken!  Please message or email your photos to us! Just how far can the Zoo take us?  In between travels they will be staying with Nancy in the church office.

 Elly had a super fun trip to Murrells Inlet, South Carolina with Casey & Ash. She rode along to come meet Ash’s family with us.  She went along on all our adventures but didn’t make it into many pictures because she was off exploring. This picture is of Elly on the day we left to come home to Atlanta overlooking the Inlet at low tide and dreaming of all the beautiful sunsets she saw during her trip! ~ Thanks for letting Elly travel with us!

 THE PENTECOST TREE  HOLY SPIRIT COME!  Just to the right as you enter the parking lot is an impressive tree that we have dedicated as “The Pentecost Tree.”  It is wrapped with a belt of red ribbon and  encircled by two red cords with multiple snaps for securing notes.  Pentecost is celebrated by the world wide church as the occasion for the coming of the Holy Spirit which brings unity in the midst of diversity, fulfillment out what is incomplete.  You are invited to access the box situated  next to the tree to leave a prayer note asking for an out pouring of the Spirit upon a concern of your life.  The concern may be personal.  It may be related to family.  It may encompass local, national or international concerns.  But it is a concern that needs the attention of the Holy Spirit.  We all pray together, “Holy Spirit Come!”

ADVENT AT BROOKHAVEN UMC

The stable slowly gains an audience over the Season of Advent, as a variety of figures make their way to the place where the “in-breaking” of God into history will occur on Christmas Day.  Members of the Brookhaven congregation are invited to add their own figurines as representatives of themselves seeking the birth of peace, hope, joy and love in their own lives.
