A Word from Our Pastor
I am blessed to have such a beautiful wife and seven children. My family and I have greatly enjoyed
the Dunnellon area and are excited to be a part of such dynamic church growth. I have been ordained
since 1989 and this is my fourth appointment ministering to a local congregation. I have served the church
on the District level in two areas and the Annual Conference on the Board of Church and Society.
I can't imagine pastoring anywhere else at this time of my life. I have no doubt that God has blessed
me greatly by serving this wonderful congregation."
Pastor's Weekly Devotion
This week we start back our devotions from the Upper Room. This is a Methodist
publication and we have hardcopies of these daily devotions at our Welcome
Center at the church.
The scripture used today is from 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. The emphasis is that God
comforts us and we are to comfort others.
I'm reminded in this passage of Ephesians 2:8-10. There the apostle Paul reminds
us that we are saved by grace and not works but when you get to verse 10, he says
we are created for good works.
The devotion deals with loneliness and a person trying to find family and mission
in their local church home. We are so blessed here to have a variety of M&M's. :-)
Ministry and Missions. If you were here last Sunday, we had Jolynn Peart describe
the, "Sewing for Souls". They make bags for Bibles for folks and different types
of head covers and other wonderful gifts for cancer centers.
We have nursing home ministries once a month at Superior in Crystal River led
by two of our dear ladies and others that go with them and one of our CLOM's
preaches every six weeks at Timber Ridge.
Pray this week that the Lord will show you what, "good work" He would have you
to be a part of.
When I think of the concept of loneliness and needing connection I think of Mary
at the tomb looking for Jesus and weeping. If you remember the story, Jesus comes
to her but she does not recognize him in her grief. She assumes he is the gardener
but when he speaks her name...connection is formed. She realizes who he is.
How would you have felt if the Lord had spoke your name in the midst of a difficult
time you were going through? Maybe He has.
Blessings this week as you pray about serving others in God's kingdom.
