Letter from Pastor Cindy


From My Heart to Yours,

Holy Week has come and gone and I must take the time to thank all the people who participated in any of the special services or the Easter Eggstavaganza. What an amazing week we had and it was made possible with the Holy Spirit's presence and power, a lot of planning, many volunteers, and of course, those who came. I don't think I can remember a more moving time in worship than at the Last Supper Drama and Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday, the Tenebrae Service of Darkness on Good Friday, the gloriously beautiful setting for worship for the Sunrise Service and then the Easter Service at 10:00am, that was filled with special music and the good news that Christ is risen, He is risen indeed. And added to all of that was the fun-filled hours of the Easter Eggstravaganza. Between 250 - 300 people enjoyed fun games with prizes, a bouncy house that was always full of laughing children, yummy hotdogs and sausage wraps with all the fixin's, and the Story of Jesus followed by an Easter Egg Hunt for way over 100 kids. We had 2,000 or more eggs so each child took home a basket full! The Lord Jesus was praised and honored in all that we said and did during Holy Week. To God be the glory!
 
Now we begin looking forward to the summer and how we will continue to love Jesus, serve others and offer God's grace to all. Vacation Bible School and movie nights are going to draw children and families to the church. Once they are here, then it is our responsibility to be welcoming and inviting. Who knows, someone might feel led to be a part of this loving community of faith. May the Lord bless all of us as we continue to be the United Methodist Church in the Smithville area. I count it pure joy to be your pastor.


In Christ our Lord,
Pastor Cindy

The First MOVIE NIGHT of the Summer!!!

Join your church family and friends for a fun evening with a great film geared for the whole family, popcorn, lemonade and ice creams.

Movie Night is the 4th Friday of every month during the summer and maybe into the fall if that works for everyone.

Movie night:  May 24, 2019, 6:30 PM in the Family Activity Center at FUMC

This months movie, McFarland, USA , is based in fact.  It is the story of an assistant football coach who finds potential for cross-county in a few students at his school.  The coach and his team overcome poverty and personal turmoil and get to the pinnacle of success.
Please join us.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 Thanks!

If there is anyone I missed when sending out thank you notes for all your hard work at the Easter Egg-stravaganza, let me tell you now, “You are the best!”
Over 200 people felt the love of Christ and the movement of the Holy Spirit in the joy and love that was spread so freely around all who came to celebrate God’s love with us.  
 God bless you for your service!

Cholesterol Management
MedicineNet
 
What is cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a chemical compound that the body requires as a building block for cell membranes and for hormones like estrogen and testosterone. The
liver produces about 80% of the body's cholesterol and the rest comes from dietary sources like meat, poultry, eggs, fish, and dairy products. Foods derived from plants contain no cholesterol.
Cholesterol content in the bloodstream is regulated Cholesterol content in the bloodstream is regulated by the liver. After a meal, cholesterol in the
diet is absorbed from the small intestine and metabolized and stored in the liver. As the body requires cholesterol, it may be secreted by the liver.
When too much cholesterol is present in the body, it can build up in deposits called plaque along the inside walls of arteries, causing them to narrow.
What are the different types of cholesterol?
Cholesterol does not travel freely through the bloodstream. Instead, it is attached or carried by lipoproteins (lipo = fat) in the blood. There are three types of lipoproteins that are categorized based upon how much protein there is in relation to the amount of cholesterol.
Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) contain a higher ratio of cholesterol to protein and are thought of as the “bad” cholesterol. Elevated levels of LDL lipoprotein increase the risk of
heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease, by helping form cholesterol plaque along the inside of artery walls. Over time, as plaque buildup (plaque deposits) increases, the artery narrows (atherosclerosis) and blood flow decreases. If the plaque ruptures, it can cause a blood clot to form that prevents any blood flow. This clot is the cause of a heart attack or myocardial infarction if the clot occurs in one of the coronary arteries in the heart.
High-density lipoproteins (
HDL) are made up of a higher level of protein and a lower level of cholesterol. These tend to be thought of as “good” cholesterol. The higher the HDL to LDL ratio, the better it is for the individual because such ratios can potentially be protective against heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.
Very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) contain even less protein than LDL. VLDL like LDL has been associated with plaque deposits.

Triglycerides (a type of fat) may increase cholesterol-containing plaques if levels of LDL are high and HDL are low.
Total cholesterol score is the sum of
HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and 20% of triglycerides as determined by a blood test. A high score indicates an increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease and/or strokes.
Cholesterol Levels
What are LDL and HDL Cholesterol?
LDL cholesterol is called "bad" cholesterol, because elevated levels of LDL cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. LDL lipoprotein deposits cholesterol along the inside of artery walls, causing the formation of a hard, thick substance called cholesterol plaque.
HDL cholesterol is called the "good cholesterol" because HDL cholesterol particles prevent atherosclerosis by extracting cholesterol from the artery walls and disposing of them through the liver. Thus, high levels of LDL cholesterol and low levels of HDL cholesterol (high LDL/HDL ratios) are risk factors for atherosclerosis, while low levels of LDL cholesterol and high levels of HDL cholesterol (low LDL/HDL ratios) are desirable and protect against heart disease and stroke.

Read about lower cholesterol levels with diet and medication »
Why is high cholesterol dangerous?
Elevated
cholesterol levels are one of the risk factors for heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. The mechanism involving cholesterol in all three diseases is the same; plaque buildup within arteries decreases blood flow affecting the function of the cells and organs that these blood vessels supply.
  • Atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when the heart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function.
  • Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotid arteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke.
  • Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise, if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain, called claudication.
  • Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney.
Where does cholesterol come from?
The liver is responsible for managing the levels of LDL in the body. It manufactures and secretes LDL into the bloodstream. There are receptors on liver cells that can "monitor" and try to adjust the LDL levels. However, if there are fewer liver cells or if they do not function effectively, the LDL level may rise.

Diet and genetics both play a factor in a person's cholesterol levels. There may be a genetic predisposition for familial hypercholesterolemia (hyper=more = cholesterol + emia=blood) where the number of liver receptor cells is low and LDL levels rise causing the potential for atherosclerotic heart disease at a younger age.
In the diet, cholesterol comes from saturated
fats that are found in meats, eggs, and dairy products. Some vegetable oils made from coconut, palm, and cocoa are also high in saturated fats products. Excess intake can cause LDL levels in the blood to rise.
 

 

The Methodist Ladies went on a field trip to the Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas on April 12, 2019.  

The purpose of the trip was for pleasure, as well as business.  The group purchased three red roses for the Prayer Garden at FUMC in Smithville.  The roses are in memory of three long-time members; Virginia Erwin, Laura Gartman, and Mary Lou Zink.

The return trip included a stop at Royers in Round Top for their delicious pies.

Attending were Judy McAbee, Marilyn Hill, Heloise Long Castles, Neta Rose, Sandra Mohr, Kathleen Caso, Pastor Cindy Layton, Patti Herndon and Sugar Miller.

The next meeting of the Methodist Ladies will be May 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm.  The group will gather at "Royal Tomato" at 212 Main Street (Smithville) to meet the new owner and enjoy complimentary "Smoothies":  We will then continue on to the "Lumberyard Studio" to meet artist, Judy Paul.

Please note this is May 16th, not May 9th.  A change was made to accommodate Ms. Paul's schedule in Austin.

 

 

The Methodist Men
 

The Methodist Men met on Tuesday, April 16th, at the Smithville "Olde World Bakery".  Twenty men attended to eat and listen to a program about Respite, presented by Brenda Zimmerman.  This mission meets every Thursday between 10:00 and 2:00 at FUMC Family Activity Center to help those in our community who have dementia related diseases.  These volunteers help serve lunch and play games with them.  Respite is asking anyone who can help during this time, please contact them.  

Our next Methodist Mens Meeting will be Tuesday, July 16, 219.

Youth update from the Upper Room:
Our youth department started with a bang in April!!!  It went from no activity, to having a room full of around 20 plus youth and parents for a birthday party, to having 5 and 7 youth for our first 2 official youth group meetings in the Upper Room.  This may not sound like much, but when you consider we’re just getting started again, I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Youth involvement in the church:
Our youth have not only been going to youth group, but they’ve been actively involved in church activities.  In April, our youth were active by helping serve meals at times on Wednesday nights, reading scripture in Sunday services, and most recently by helping set up tents, putting out Easter eggs, and clean up and tear down after the Eggstravaganza.
Youth on the move:     
These young people have very active lives, and stay busy in school and in their extra-curricular activities, and April was no different.  We had young people involved in a major band competition, baseball and golf tournaments, and most recently a Regional track meet.  If you know of any specific activities, grades, competitions, or other involvement you’d like to have mentioned, please let me know, so we can recognize them.
A word from the Director of Youth Ministries:
I just wanted to personally thank everyone for the encouraging words, prayers, and support in getting the youth group of our church kick started again.  We may not be strong in numbers, but we’re started again.  One thing we are strong in is the message being given, and the time being invested in the lives of the young people that walk through those doors.  Young people are our future, and we need to invest in them.  Something to think about.  You don’t have to be GREAT to get started, but in order to be GREAT, you have to get started…

Holy Week is a special time in the life of the church.  This year the men of the church made Maundy Thursday a time of introspection and delight.  Thirteen of FUMC’s finest put on disciple costumes and portrayed the followers of Jesus as they gathered in the upper room for their last Passover Seder together.  Each disciple said a few words about their relationship with the Lord and then were greeted by Jesus as they approached the table and sat.  Jesus spoke of his death and washed the disciples feet.  The confusion was evident in the faces of those around the table.  At the moment just after Jesus says, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.” the disciples froze for just a second and there before us was  Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.  It was a beautiful moment.  Thank you to Pastor Cindy and the disciples for this blessing.


  


Easter Egg-stravaganza a HUGE Success


                April 20, 2019 at 11:00 AM, First UMC Smithville opened its Easter Egg-stravaganza even as tent building was still going on.  People from the neighborhood and the town flowed into the field next to the education building for games, bouncing in the bouncy house and talking with the Wesley Nurse and members of the church about outreach at the church.  Members and friends of the church cooked hotdogs and sausage for wraps, served over 150 meals with dogs, wraps, chips and soft drinks and hid more than 2000 Easter eggs while Pastor Cindy Layton told over 100 excited children the Easter Story with wonderful expression.
“This is amazing!” was heard many times throughout the three hours of the event from both members and attendees.  All together it is estimated that at least 300 folks enjoyed time together meeting neighbors, seeing old friends and learning that God is at work in the church at 400 Olive Street, Smithville, Texas.
This event was the product of our being part of a Cohort Group set up by the Rio Texas Annual Conference.  Our Cohort Team spent time listening to the dreams and aspirations of other church teams and sharing our own dreams of ways to bring the love of Christ to our community.  Through our work together we were able to dream our dream, refine it and then make it happen in a big and wonderful way.  Our Cohort Team would like to thank the Annual Conference for this great opportunity and Karen Horan for her exceptional leadership.

Michael Arteen

 


Serving At: Bethlehem Bible College (BBC)
Home Country: United States of America, North America
Michael Arteen is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church serving as chaplain and director of spiritual life at Bethlehem Bible College (BBC) in Palestine/Israel. He was commissioned in May 2016.
Bethlehem Bible College, a mission partner of Global Ministries since the 1980s, provides training and support for the Palestinian Christian community in the Holy Land, a population facing discrimination and dispossession under the prevailing political and territorial system. The college chaplain addresses the spiritual and social needs of both students and the larger community. Michael also serves as pastoral assistant at a local non-denominational church.
Michael was born in Egypt into a Christian family. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Egypt before migrating as a young man to the United States, where he became a citizen.
In the US, he served as a pastoral assistant at the Arabic Church of Florida in Lake Mary and the Arabic Christian Church of Houston, Texas. Michael is working toward his master’s degree in leadership and ministry at BBC.
“I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was 14 and knew that I was called for evangelism at an early age,” Michael recalls. “I had a great desire to share Jesus Christ with anyone who would listen.” In his youth, the church in Egypt experienced renewed persecution. “As an Egyptian Christian, I learned to rely fully on Jesus for everything. I learned that he alone is our shelter and place of refuge.”
“All our needs will be fulfilled in Jesus alone—there is no other source.”

WEEKLY PRAYER IN THE CHAPEL

WEDNESDAYS @ 9:30 am

 


Prayer is a sacred practice that works in ways we can’t even begin to comprehend. As Christians, we have faith in God’s plan, but can you explain the peace or comfort you experience in the midst of grief or trials? Do you ever need a moment in the middle of your busy-ness week to pause and recharge? Come to the chapel and quiet your heart. Prayer is personal. Prayer is powerful. You will find your life enriched as you pray. Suzanne and Neta meet each Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. In this season of Advent, you are invited to recommit and join them in this opportunity to pray and reflect. Come as you are, come when you can.

26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. 27 And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.  Romans 8:26-27 NRSV

New Hope Respite 

10:00 am - 2:00 pm, Thursdays

FUMC Family Activity Center
At New Hope Respite, we celebrate holidays to give our guests a fun time.  In April we celebrated Easter, the resurrection with helping to fill the eggs for the egg hunt, had a delicious ham dinner, festive table directions & sent our guests home with a candy treat.  This month we will be doing something similar for Memorial or as some say Decoration Day with red, white & blue in support of those who died in protection of our country.  There is another holiday that we will observe this month, which actually falls on Thursday May 2.  The theme for this holiday is “Love one another-Just like I love you”.  Any idea?  President Ronald Reagan designated the 1st Thursday of May as National Day of Prayer. Wherever you are on that day at approximately 12:15, please join us as this is our time for prayer, every Thursday.
 
This past week was the first organizational meeting for the Alzheimer’s Walk that is held in October.  In 2018, the New Hope Respite team raised the highest amount of funds for Alzheimer’s Texas.  We have been asked to keep the congregation abreast of the activities and progress  and have an all-in-one FUMCS/New Hope Respite team to make it even better & bigger in 2019.  All funds raised at these walks stay here in Central Texas to assist with education, respite care and needs of our local people.  Consider being part of the walk.  If you are unable to walk, please consider making a donation.  Information regarding making a donation, so that our team gets credit will come at a later time.
 
The awards banquet for the “5 Who Care   for 2019 Award” was held Tuesday evening at The Library on the Lake in Austin.  Myself, Rob Robinson, my husband Ellwood, my assistant Nancy Brady, Janet Jones and Pastor Cindy attended.  This is the 31st year for this award.  There were 5 youth and 5 adults chosen, the youngest being 11 and the oldest 70+.  It was a simple but impressive affair. At the conclusion of the affair, I was approached by Bobby Jenkins who is President of ABC Home & Professional Services and also a sponsor of the award.  He thanked us for the wonderful things we/you   are doing for our community and then shared with me that he is on the Board of Directors of Alzheimer’s Texas.
 
We still need YOU.  To grow, we need MORE volunteers which could be either you or maybe a friend of yours.  PLEASE come to visit and see what we do.  Talk to your friends about the program.  Our numbers go up and down.  We currently have 2 in nursing facilities but hope they will be back with us.  When someone signs up their loved one, they agree to bring them on a regular basis as it is impossible to have proper help otherwise.  I recently had to make a judgment & place a guest on a waiting list because he had only attended once in six weeks as it is unfair to those waiting for a spot.  We filled that spot this week with a new lady from La Grange.  COME SEE US…HELP US GROW…Keep US IN YOUR PRAYERS.
Blessings,
Brenda
