REV. RENNY SCOTT

NOTED AUTHOR AND SPEAKER

 

 

Moving from the Kingdom of Politics to the Kingdom of God was the exciting and dynamic journey of Renny Scott. Our Pastor Emeritus, Bro. Jim Fillingim has been facilitating the Wednesday night study of Questions of the Heart. Renny went to high school and college with John Kerry, former Secretary of State. At Yale, George Bush, later President, was a year behind him and George Pataki, 3-term governor of New York was his roommate.

 

Renny Scott studied political science at Yale and at Harvard’s J.F.K’s School of Government. His plans to pursue law and politics were interrupted when he met Christ on September 3, 1968. As an Episcopal Priest, he served in two of the fastest growing churches in his denomination. On        Pentecost Sunday, 1986, he stepped down from the priesthood to become a layman serving God among the poor in inner city Atlanta. Five years later, God began to draw his heart toward          discipling the next generation, and he spent twenty years investing in Christian Education.

  1. God is always at work around you.

  2. God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal.

  3. God invites you to become involved with Him in His work.

  4. God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways.

  5. God's invitation for you to work with Him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.

  6. You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what He is doing.

  7. You come to know God by experience as you obey Him and He accomplishes His work through you.

Community-Wide Trunk or Treat Event

Join us October 26th for a Community-Wide Trunk or Treat!

Daphne UMC will host a community-wide Fall Festival event called "Trunk or Treat" for families within DUMC and friends from the community! If this is to be a success we will NEED YOUR HELP. Starting October 2nd, volunteers will be available throughout each service and Sunday School to sign volunteers up for this event. We specifically are praying that Sunday School classes, small groups and Bible studies will be willing to sponsor trunks of games that kids and families will be able to visit. 

We'll also need volunteers to help with our food/beverage and inflatable jump zone areas. If you are unable to join us in community service on October 26, please consider making a monetary donation to the church indicating it is for Trunk or Treat or please consider donating candy and prizes to church-wide drop off boxes. We would also appreciate those who are willing to partner with us in prayer for this event. 

If you are in need of game ideas or would like to find others to help you sponsor a trunk please simply contact the office at dumc.org and we'll connect you with these resources. 

We are grateful for your willingness to partner with us for this community wide event. We are also prayerfully expectant of how God will use DUMC through Trunk or Treat!

Want to host a trunk but need some help? As you think about how you want to decorate your car for the big event consider these suggestions: 

  •  Start with a Theme – Your theme will establish everything else you do. Start by choosing a theme and then add your ideas to it!
  • Coordinate Your Costume – More than just decorating your car, consider matching your costume to the theme, too! If you have a Flintstone’s trunk – you could dress the whole family up as members of the Flintstone family! 
  • Add an Activity – Many trunk decorators have added ways for the kids to earn their candy through some sort of activity. For some trunks, the kids must search through a treasure chest of gold at their pirate-themed car, or maybe they have to throw their fishing pole into the “sea” trunk to retrieve their prize. Kids LOVE this sort of thing! 
  • Get Creative With the Candy – Depending on your theme, consider giving away candy or prizes that match the theme. For example, the Cookie Monster-themed trunk could definitely give out some cookies!
  • Make it Personal – We have lots of ideas for you below, but don’t feel limited by the examples. Think of your own favorite animals, children’s stories, movies, hobbies and more that YOU are interested!
