JUNE 2019

Micah 6 8


Hope for Tomorrow



     On May 12, 2019 eight young adults confessed their faith of Jesus Christ as their Savior, put their whole trust in his grace, and promised to serve him as their Lord in the church which Christ opened to people of all ages, nations, and races.  They promised to strengthen the ministries of the United Methodist Church by their prayers, their presence, their gifts, and their service.  They affirmed the hope we have in Christ as they accepted the freedom and power God gives us to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves. 

     In turn, we give thanks to God for them, for they are the coming generation of believers.  And we promised to do our part; that with God's help we will proclaim the good news and live according to the example of Christ; that we will surround them with a community of love and forgiveness, that we may all grow in our trust of God, and be found faithful in service to others; and that we will pray for them that they may be true disciples who walk in the way that leads to life.  (UM Hymnal p. 35-36)

     And so I'm asking you to keep each one in your prayers, to pray for them by name that they will grow strongin the faith; that they will "treat others the way they want to be treated;" and that they will "do justice, love, kindness, and walk humbly with our God"     Micah 6:8


Celebrate and give thanks for all the young people and families of our church and especially the eight newest new members.      -Pastor Rhonda
