June is here, the pools are open and the seeds are planted; now we June 2013 are

going into the warmth of summer days. However, for United Cicero United Methodist Pastors, June has another meaning. It means Annual Methodist Church Conference which brings about many mixed emotions. You will P AST OR B yron Frit z P. O. Box 617 have the business side of the Conference which can affect pastors Cicero, IN. 46034 and also the churches; that is why every church has a lay delegate for the voting process. So lift up Mike Murphy who is our lay Pastor 1 delegate. For some it is a time of reunion with other pastors and General News 2-7 lay persons with whom you have served together on committees, church camps or other organizations. It is a time of excitement Birthdays & Anniversaries 4 with the ordination of men and women who have gone through the many hours of seminary and meet with different committees Those Serving 5 of the district and conference. Annual Conference is also a time to say thank you to pastors who are retiring from full time active Prayer Requests 6 service and may continue to pastor in a less than full-time position June Readings 7 or just retiring to a time with family. Then there is the memorial service at Annual Conference when we remember those who have Just for Kids 8 passed away in the last year and honor all the years of service Calendar 9 they have given to the Lord and the Indiana Annual Conference. In the last few years since we have had Annual Conference in downtown Indianapolis, there have been opportunities for the delegates to join together in many different types of missions such as Habitat for Humanity, Fletcher Place, Brightwood and to the world. So when I think of June, yes, I enjoy all that God has given us out-of-doors, but it is also a time for me to be thankful as a United Methodist for all that we do together as a connectional church. One person can do something, but many working together can do so much more. You are welcome to come to the Convention Center on June 6 th, 7th and 8th as a visitor to see all the United Methodist booths, agencies and programs; you can set in on the Conference session without a vote as a visitor. There is also an Indians ballgame on Saturday night and the Bishop will be tossing the first ball. There will be a United Methodist seating section. I pray, that as June passes by and half of the year 2013 will be over, that your life with Christ will continue to grow through the study of the word and special times of prayer before Gods throne. We have much to be thankful for and to be proud to be a child of God in the United Methodist Church.

LAY LEADER / CHURCH COUNCIL CHAIR Gosh! It is June already! The year will be half over at the end of this month. Where did the time go? Probably, you are like my family, you are planning a vacation trip to some destination to relax and get away from the daily routine. Please remember that Gods work at Cicero United Methodist does not take a vacation or time off from the daily routine. Gods work is ongoing - 24/7, 365 days a year. As such, God needs your support during the summer as well as the rest of the year. If you are planning on being away for one, two or more weeks this summer, we hope that you will remember to continue your gifts to God so that His work in Cicero might continue uninterrupted. Enjoy your time away from your daily routine and we will look forward to seeing you when you are home.

SUMMER SCOUTING NEWS Saturday, June 1, is the annual Boy Scout Troop Pancake Breakfast at Red Bridge Park. We thank you for your support. During the week of June 9-15 the Scout Troop will be at Summer Camp at the Ransburg Scout Reservation near Bloomington, Indiana. The troop will again camp at Adventure Point where they run their own program and cook their own meals. Summer camp provides the Scouts the opportunity for completing many items that are needed for advancement. Our Scout Troop has a great year-round program, but probably more advancement is accomplished at Scout Camp than any other time during the year. The boys are able to eat, drink and sleep Scouting for nearly seven days and seven nights. We appreciate all of the adults who gave up a week of their vacation time to spend it with our Scouts at Camp.

RECYCLING Did you know that you can recycle flattened cardboard at the Cicero Utilities Complex at 1159 Stringtown Pike? There is a large bin just south of the tennis courts and basketball courts near the wastewater plant. It is labeled CARDBOARD ONLY. Take your cardboard there and keep it out of the landfills. At the same time, you can drop off your newspapers, household papers, magazines, etc. in the bin behind the Cicero library, if you do not have curbside recycling. It takes just a little effort, but together we can make a difference.

Life Lessons
by Joanna Fuchs You may have thought I didnt see, Or that I hadnt heard, Life lessons that you taught to me, But I got every word. Perhaps you thought I missed it all, And that wed grow apart, But Dad, I picked up everything, Its written on my heart. Without you, Dad, I wouldnt be The person I am today; You built a strong foundation No one can take away. Ive grown up with your values, And Im very glad I did; So heres to you, dear father, From your forever grateful kid.
