John Carter, is leading a new study called:
“Experiencing the Bible Again for the First Time”.
  Written for those who hunger to know and engage the Bible at deeper levels. This study provokes inquiry, welcomes questions, engages the imagination and encourages listening for and discovering the word of God in ourselves and others.
By engaging the three centers of learning: head, heart, and gut, participants encounter and engage the biblical story and tradition to find meaning for their own lives and movement toward transformation.

**********************************************************************************************

‘Your word is a lamp for my feet
and a light unto my path.’

                                                            Psalm 119: 105

          What we do for a living can be either secular or sacred. The choice is ours. The kind of work we do is not the decider. You can do anything in way that praises and glorifies God. A worker in the humblest of jobs is just as capable of demonstrating God’s love and compassion as one in the most exalted of positions. The next time you are feeling unproductive or unappreciated, be reminded that you are working for the glory of God, not for your won glory. If even a tiny bit of God’s love is reflected in our work those you work with will know God is in your life and may themselves be brought closer to God through you.

In the Spirit of the Lord,
Pastor Melissa

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
