“Thank You” to Our Resident Retired Reverends!

While Lynn and I are taking a break away this weekend, I want to thank our two retired United Methodist clergy for stepping in for me and leading our worship this morning. One thing about Nancy Morgan and Gladys Williford is that though they may be retired from episcopal appointments, they surely have not retired from serving our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in His Church! Gladys and Nancy, we all thank you for your tireless service, your leadership, and your shining Christian example among us. Thank you and God bless you for sharing your gifts with us!

Calling All Ladies! Beth Moore Bible Study Starts Tonight!

Beginning tonight, an eleven week ladies’ Beth Moore Bible Study will be offered from 5:00-6:30PM in the back room of the fellowship hall. The title is “Seeking the Heart of God Through a Study of David.” Lisa Frier has volunteered to be the Study facilitator. Ladies, don’t miss this opportunity to sit at the feet of Beth Moore (50 minutes of each Session will be watching Beth teach on video tape) and to listen, share, and grow through warm and engaging group discussion. If you don’t have a Member Book yet, go online today at and order one for $14.99, and come out tonight!

The Sunday night time slot is especially beneficial for mothers who are already bringing their children and/or youth to the church for their Sunday night programming. Then, at 6:30PM, any mothers who have children or youth at the church can join them in the fellowship hall for a light supper. (Note the change in start time for Sunday night supper from 6PM to 6:30PM.) Of course, any and all ladies of the church are invited to attend this inspiring and uplifting Study

Crown Biblical Financial Study Orientation Tuesday Night at 6:45PM

Led by Lamon Warnock and Joyce Anne Skinner, this Course starts with orientation this Tuesday, then the course will run from March 6-May 8. The cost is $45 for single persons and $55 for couples. Come and learn how to lower your debt, increase your savings, increase your planned giving, strengthen your marriage, and devote more time to prayer and bible study. Contact Lamon or Joyce Anne TODAY to register or with any questions you might have.

Wow, we have a lot of new mission, ministry, and discipleship opportunities springing up in our church! God’s great Holy Spirit is moving and leading us onward and upward. I hope you’ll take full advantage of the spiritual updraft that’s in your church today!

Your Pastor and Friend, Mark
