Bishop James E. Swanson, Sr. and the Cabinet of the Mississippi Conference worked prayerfully to appoint clergy to every church in our Annual Conference during the Appointment Sessions. As Chairperson of the Staff Parish Relations Committee, I give thanks for the ministry of our pastor, Rev. Darian Duckworth, who has served us as a pastor, teacher, leader and friend in Christ. Our church is projected to receive Pastor Darian for another appointment year. We ask for your prayers for her and we also ask that you remember to lift up the churches and pastors throughout
Mississippi that share this time with us.
Serving Christ Together,
Coming Alive In The Spirit
In our worship services on Trinity Sunday, we heard Isaiah’s glorious vision of a throne room where heavenly beings come alive and God himself invites us to participate in His work. Once we glimpse God’s glory, there’s no going back to our old ways of looking at the world. When Isaiah’s vision ended, he carried it into his vocation of prophecy: warning and encouraging God’s people with his powerful voice. I am so looking forward to another year of coming alive in the Spirit with you here at First UMC of West Point as your pastor. What are your dreams for your life? What are your dreams for our church?
Let’s dare to dream that the heaven Isaiah glimpsed is indeed a reality here on earth!
all good things to each of you, Pastor Darian
