Leadership Day

Many thanks to the clergy and laity from the Capitol Area North and Capitol Area South Districts who attended our annual Leadership Training Day on Saturday, February 3, at Powell UMC.  Over 400 people learned about different ministries, committees, and ways to better serve the church.  We were blessed by your presence and look forward to next year!   

Lenten Journey - Day 7

Wednesday, February 21 - Day 7 of our Journey on the Disciple’s Path
Luke 11:3
Give us each day our daily bread.  NRSV
 
John 6:15
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
 
What do you need today?  Not tomorrow or next week but today?
What do you really need?  Not what do you want but what do you really need?

Lenten Journey - Day 6

Tuesday, February 20 - Day 6 of our Journey on the Disciple’s Path
 
Matthew  6:10
Your kingdom come.  Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  NRSV
 
What would it mean for God’s kingdom to come to earth?  What would the world look like if God’s will was always done?  If Jesus ruled the hearts and minds of all people? 

Lenten Journey - Day 5

Monday, February 19 - Day 5 of our Journey on the Disciple’s Path
This week we look at our membership promise to pray.
 
Luke 11:1-4
He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name.”
 
This passage from Luke repeated in a similar form in Matthew 6:5-14 has become the most familiar Christian prayer.  For the next six days, we will consider one phrase from it each day as we concentrate on praying like Jesus.
 

Lenten Journey

For the 40 days of Lent, we will journey along a path to Disicpleship.  This series of reflections was inspired by James Harnish's "A Disciple's Path."
 
Thursday, February 15 – Day 1 of our Journey on the Disciple’s Path
Luke 10:25-28
