Message from our Pastor:
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding
This is my favorite time of the year to plant and prune fresh buds! More importantly this is the Lenten Season! This is a time of remembrance of the 40-day period of fasting. I look forward to the springtime as a means of producing ideas and opportunities for the church. I guess I would say that I am fond of being outside and doing missional work in the community! This is the time for us to get to know how neighbors and to see what areas where Asbury Jessup can be instrumental in our servant outreach!
I know one area that is dear to me is the neighboring shelter and the many residents who need just someone to listen to them. I am learning to frequent the residents prior to my Thursday’s bible studies. I also enjoy seeing my seniors in their facilities. I am hoping that more of the Lay servants would accompany me or visit these places as a part of their responsibilities as Lay servants.
I am also enrolled in a spring course with Wesley in March and April. The course that I signed up for is Theological Heritage 4: Wesleyan Movement. This course is another opportunity for me to understand and reflect on the movements, major figures, and events that led to the eighteenth-century revivals, especially the lives and ministries of John and Charles Wesley.
Lastly, I am energized at the 2018 new ministries and the plans for fundraisers and initiatives that will continue to stretch our boundaries in outreach!!
