"This Week" with Pastor Frank... November 5, 2018
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! This past week we remembered our loved ones who went on to be with the Lord by the moving All Saints services. Death is inevitable, and it can be comforting to know that death is not the end, that death is not the victor, but that Christ conquered death in the Resurrection. We grieve, as the apostle Paul wrote, but not as those who have no hope. (1st Thessalonians 4:13) By such services as All Saints, and the remembrance of our Lord with Communion, we realize we are part of something eternal, that God has in mind for us a beauty beyond what we can imagine.
Ken and Daralyn Schubert, the Rising from the Water campaign co-chairs, announced the number: $1,005,652!!! This number includes the $150,000 from The Woodlands UMC and the $145,000 from the Permanent Endowment Fund of the Moody Foundation. It is already out of date! This number is based on 62 pledges and pledges continue to come in!
Total construction costs will be more than our pledged amount, but we will have a Sanctuary for both worship services, and be able to reach out to our community to make disciples for Jesus Christ -- and we may be able to build this without a significant long-term debt! Just a year ago we were barely worshiping inside, with no walls and scraped concrete floors, without a place to hold Sunday School on our property. God has blessed us, and we have worked! We have worked, and God has blessed us! (There has been a lot of blessing and a lot of work!) Amen!
This week we are privileged to hear "The First Resort", a sermon based on Matthew 6: 5-14, for our own Ken Burns, the director of Youth Ministries. No matter our struggles, God can get us through it, and our first resort is to pray. Don't miss out on this opportunity to hear a word from the Lord. May our Lord use this message to radically change lives this Sunday! Come and see...
May God bless you all.
Faithfully in Jesus Christ,
