Monday Musings (4/29/13)

Good Day Church,

How do you love? This was the question put to us this past Sunday. In worship we heard about how Jesus loves us. He showed his love in everything he did, in the way he lived, and in giving up his life for each of us. It is because of his death and resurrection that we have forgiveness and new life. If God has loved us in such a way and has called us to love one another, then how are you loving? We all have people in our lives that are not easy to love and yet God calls us to love them anyways. Pray now for that person, ask God to bring reconciliation into your life, and seek now to invite those people who don’t know Christ to come to know him.

God has loved us so much that we could never explain it or comprehend it. All we can do is share it with the world that is in so much need to know it. Have a blessed week. Know that I pray for you and your family each day. I am so excited to be called as your pastor to share here in this wonderful place of God.

Along the Journey,
Pastor Jude

Adult Retreat
Anyone interested in attending the Adult Retreat is invited to sign up with the church office. We will gather at 7pm on Friday, May 10th at Jumonville. We will spend Friday evening playing games, having a camp fire and getting to know each other. Saturday will be filled with a walk to the cross, a walk to green cathedral, and a study on Esther. We will look at what it means to be called of God for such a time as this. We will eat both breakfast and lunch on Saturday at the Inn. We will close our time out together by 3pm with worship and communion. If you have any questions about the retreat please see Pastor Jude. The cost of the Retreat is $65 per person. Scholarships are available. Currently there are only five rooms available.
