HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Greetings Church Family!
Thank you to all who produced and presented our wonderful Advent & Christmas Season Services. Please be assured of our prayer that you may be blessed in every way so that 2019 will be a peaceful, joyful, and fruitful year for you and your family. This is our prayer for our churches as well!
In October at Forest City, we presented our renewed VISION, PLANS, and STRATEGIES for 2019 and the Budget that would realize it all.
We also renewed our VISION and STRATEGIES for 2019 at Crystal Lake.
On December 25, 1747, John Wesley first urged the People called Methodists to renew their Covenant Commitment to God, and to do so annually.
ON SUNDAY, FEBRAURY 3rd, 8:30am at Crystal Lake and 10am at Forest City, we will renew our commitment to God and His church in our ANNUAL COVENANT SERVICE.
In this deeply moving service we renew our commitment to God and to His service, and we will be invited to commit ourselves as God’s Covenant Community to: GATHER in worship and fellowship, to GROW in maturity and discipleship, to GO in service and witness in fulfillment of the “Great Commission” and the “Great Commandment” of our Lord.
I look forward to a year of growing vitality and service as we live our belief that, “A great commitment to the ‘Great Commission’ and the ‘Great Commandment’ will grow a ‘Great Church!’”
In His love,
