the full height of our humanity; For there is weakness in us, as well as
At times we choose to walk in darkness, our vision obscured.

- All who worship here are equals in the sight of God, regardless of race, age, gen-
der, physical disability or religious affiliation.
- Communion, when celebrated, is open to all who profess Christ as Lord and Sav-
ior, whether affiliated with this church or not. Children may partake of Commun-
ion as well, if parents approve.
- A nursery is available during the service; please see a greeter for directions. (This
is for infants and children up to 3 years of age.)
- Handicap-accessible restrooms are located off the narthex (main foyer) and adja-
cent to the entrance lobby in the Fellowship Hall/Gym.

Ministries/Activities Within Our Church
The Church Session will meet this Tuesday evening, October 14 at 6:30 in the
conference room.
Choir Practice is each Sunday morning right after the Worship Service. The
New Hope Choir is more than a choir, but a small fellowship in itself. If you en-
joy singing, Ben invites you to join them!
Wednesday Prayer Meetings continue at 6:30 p.m. Pastor Burrow leads a de-
votional thought; we share prayers for each other and for the church family.
Prayer is vital part of a Christians life. We encourage everyone to attend, espe-
cially those who are ordained elders in the church.
Food Pantry Please remember the church Food Pantry. As winter approaches
we need to have the pantry in good order by bringing canned and dry goods.
Please see Evelyn Price for whats needed.
Booster Seats! We have a serious need of booster seats and child seats for the
church van. We would prefer new ones due to safety and cleanliness issues, but
if anyone has anything gently used we wont turn it away!
Van Drivers Needed. Michael King has volunteered to help drive the van!
Thanks, Mike! We are in need of about two more folks. This is an urgent and
important ministry. If you would like to volunteer and have a CDL license, that
is all we need, along with a copy of your drivers license. If you do not have a
CDL, you need to take a short driving quiz on the churchs insurance website to
qualify, and give us a copy of your drivers license. Please see Johnny Crowder
or Robbie Haynes to volunteer.
Sound Booth Technicians/Helpers needed. Thanks to Alene Gibson for vol-
unteering! We need more flexibility in this important ministry. Please see Rick
White or Johnny Crowder if you are interested, or indicate your interest on the
back of the tear-off portion of the bulletin today.
Stephen Ministry - Got a burden? You dont have to carry that burden alone.
You can have a Stephen Minister who will spend time with you, listen to you,
and walk beside you. If you or someone you know is interested in receiving care
through the Stephen Ministry program at New Hope, please contact the pastor
through the Church office at (615) 449-7020 and request that a Stephen minister
contact you.

Scripture Reference
Matthew 22:1-14 New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying:
The kingdom of heaven is like a
king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
He sent his servants to those who
had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
Then he sent some more servants and said, Tell those who have been invited that I
have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and eve-
rything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.
But they paid no attention and went offone to his field, another to his business.
The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them.
The king was en-
raged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
Then he said to his servants, The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did
not deserve to come.
So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone
you find.
So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they
could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not
wearing wedding clothes.
He asked, How did you get in here without wedding
clothes, friend? The man was speechless.
Then the king told the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside,
into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are invited, but few are chosen.

Lectionary Readings
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost Color: Green.
Exodus 32:1-14. While Moses was up on the mountain with God, the people became
anxious. Aaron led them to fashion a golden calf and to worship it. This appalled
God and Moses. Only through Moses'
intercession was disaster averted.
Psalm 106:1-6, 19-23.
Philippians 4:1-9. Paul addresses the specific
conflict in the community at Philippi head-on,
calling the two chief parties in the conflict by
name and asking for the assistance of
Syzygos, their bishop (?), whose name means
"yokemate," to help resolve it. The letter then
turns towards its close, with exhortations to
rejoice, trust God, and focus all thoughts on
worthy things.
Matthew 22:1-14. Jesus tells the parable of
the Wedding Banquet. Those invited did not
respond, so the king ordered his servants to hit
the streets and alleys to invite everyone to come. One person came who refused to
dress appropriately; he was promptly thrown out. The conclusion: many are called,
but few are chosen.
