A Message From Our Pastor  
 
Praise be to God! We have been blessed with a new year.

While it is true, I pray you every blessing in the year to come, we are not going talk about resolutions. When we’re honest with ourselves and God, we don’t keep them.

But this year as a church community we will renew our Wesley Covenant. John Wesley inspired the service of covenant renewal at the beginning the year to strengthen our sense of devotion and commitment to our Lord first and foremost. But also, to renew our commitment to the community that has been formed because of the common faith in Jesus Christ.

As a community, I invite you to share in the studying book by Magrey R. deVega ‘One Faithful Promise.’ The book will offer a process for us to journey together in examining our hearts. And making ourselves ready for the covenant renewal service scheduled  February 3rd. There are copies available at the church. Just ask. The book is also available in digital format on both Amazon ’Kindle’ and Barnes and Noble ‘Nook’ devices.

Come join us! The prayer guides will reflect the questions in the book and specially chosen scripture readings scripture to ponder.

Many New Year’s Blessings to you all!


Blessings,
Pastor Althea
