A Word the Pastor (7-31-2014)

Blessings of Grace and Peace,

The month of August is here. It has been a memorable summer for many of the church family. Vacations, travels to various destinations, reunions, weddings and many other exciting adventures. Thank you for sharing your stories. I have a story to share with you about God's work here in our little part of the world. A year ago the Church Council approved the recommendations of Intentional Faith Development Leader Bill Milliken and his team to endeavor to provide an environment for teaching the children in a new way. From early elementary all the way through to confirmation and to UMYF, then off to college and Wesley Foundation. With crafts, and singing, videos, skits, and storytelling Rotation Station Sunday School is celebrating its first birthday. Come to 5th Sunday Brunch on August 31st to hear from the kids and hear about the success story of our elementary age Sunday program. UMYF will be resuming on Sunday August 17th. Tori Mick has been working hard designing a compelling and exciting program for youth enabling them to be engaged and to grow as Christians under her leadership.

     On August 10th we will turn our thoughts toward stewardship. As members, as participants in the life of this church there is one thing that should be resoundingly obvious, it is not about us, it is about God. What we have is a gift of God and what we give reflects our values toward the benevolence of our Creator and our willingness to see our unique role in creation as caretakers and stewards of what we are given. The Stewardship work and the area of Extravagant Generosity led by Wayne Lohaus will be sharing with us some vital considerations about how we respond when asked to give. When you give do not give because you are obligated to give but give because you want to be part of and involved in what God is doing and getting ready to do in the Twin Cities, the surrounding areas, and around the world for His kingdom. Give because children have a place to learn about Jesus. Give because families can come together here in this place during the sad times of life to give thanks to God. Give because families can come together in this place for the happy occasions of weddings and baptisms. Give because the work of this church feeds the hungry, clothes the naked, assists the widows and announces the Gospel to world. Give because Rotation Station, UMYF, Wesley Foundation and the ministries of this church help make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world in the 21st century.

     In the sermon from July 27th I asked the question where have you seen God? On the bulletin board there are post cards, take a moment and think about where you have seen God of late. Let's fill the board and share these sightings with each other and with our world. "Iím absolutely convinced that nothingónothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkableóabsolutely nothing can get between us and Godís love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us." - Romans 8:38 The Message

     Thank you for your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your testimony. - With blessings of Grace and Peace, - Pastor Keith
