FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR MIKE
Grace and Peace,
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow. Let me first start by saying thank you to everyone who participated, helped or even attended services during the season of Lent, and Easter. I believe that both seasons were quite beautiful at our church. Let us continue to celebrate the Risen King.
As we approach the month of May, the same Spirit that is upon our Lord, and Savior Jesus, is still with you. I share these profound words with you based on the power of the Holy Spirit. The season of Pentecost is here. Pentecost is a Christian holy day that celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit 40 days after Easter. Some Christian denominations considers it the birthday of the Christian church and celebrate it as such.
The coming of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2 is all about the Spirit of the risen Christ, has fallen upon the disciples who were gathered in the upper room for prayer. Suddenly, the Spirit enables them to communicate a language that is resounded around the world. The message of Jesus becomes personal in the lives of those who believe. This same Spirit is still present amongst us today.
In May, here at FUMC, as we prepare for our Mother’s Day brunch May 13th 2018; my prayer and desire for this upcoming gathering, will be a meaningful connection with our church, and the surrounding community. Jesus tells us in Matthew 22:37 “you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Whatever you do, continue to stay in the Spirit, keep your eyes on Jesus Christ, and share that same love that was given to you.
