Pray for Pastor Kyle & Christina Welstad: They will begin their ministry here officially on Sunday, February 15th. Pray for this huge transition.

This Sunday we will celebrate our commitments to Christ during a covenant renewal service. It will be full of music, scripture and liturgy.
Here is what’s happening this week & beyond:
- Sunday, October 12th, John Wesley service: The focus of this service is to make or renew our commitment to God. A brief explanation of the service “This service comes to us through John Wesley, the forefather of our theological tradition. For him what it meant to be a mature disciple of Christ was the joining of believers in a covenant “to serve God with all our heart and with all our soul.” He urged his Methodist followers to renew, “at every point, our covenant, that the Lord should be our God.” –John Wesley is one of the founders of the Methodist Church and our Theology.
- Sunday, October 12th, Lunch together after our Wesley service. Elizabeth is asking for volunteers to bring food. Please call her if you are able to bring something (206-913-9615)
