"This Week" with Pastor Frank... May 14, 2018

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  This past week we celebrated the Lord's Table, welcomed new member Cyndi Cormier transferring in Clear Lake United Methodist Church, and heard about Testimony, Word and Truth based on 1 John 5.   

On Tuesday, May 15 at 7 pm, we have a special called Charge Conference, to be led by our District Superintendent Rev. Kip Gilts.  The purpose of the Charge Conference is to get permission to begin a Capital Campaign with Horizons Stewardship.  A previous Administrative Council Meeting approved having Horizons Stewardship conduct a Feasibility Study on the likelihood of success of such a campaign, and as a result of in-person interviews and filled out e-surveys, the result was we should have success in raising between $300,000 and $500,000 for a new Sanctuary.  The Charge Conference will vote to begin the campaign.

In the fall we plan to have another called Charge Conference, to approve the design  of the new Sanctuary currently being worked on by our architect and building committee and approve the costs of building the structure.  No ground will be broken until these approvals are met.  Tuesday's meeting authorizes the church to begin the process.  

This Sunday we will recognize our Seniors and have a special Pentecost remembrance.  Like we have done the past two years, we'll hear the story from Acts told in several languages, to give us a sense of what it may have been like when the Holy Spirit came upon those gathered.  

WE NEED SPEAKERS to read Acts 21:1-4 in as many languages as we can muster!  Can you, or are you willing to try, to read these verses in a foreign tongue?  Contact me by replying to this email.  Thank you!

The sermon will be called "What'd They Say?" and is based on Acts 2: 1-21.  

This is an important time in the life of our church.  Please keep praying, and keep reading and studying your Bibles.

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
