Pastor’s Message – November 12, 2019

Reaching the Mountain
Be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.
~ Isaiah 65:18
Over the past month in worship, we have planned to climb the mountain of the Lord together. Truth be told, there are actually two mountains we have reached. One is the mountain of the Lord, which we will talk more about in worship on Sunday as we study Isaiah 65. The other is the year 2020 here at First United Methodist Church of West Point. Now is the time for you to become an active part of what God is doing on his holy mountain. As we ready ourselves for Commitment Sunday, November 17, over the next few days, would you do the following with me?
1. Prayerfully read over our 2020 budgets that are included in this newsletter.
2. Ask the Lord what He desires for you to commit financially, and fill out the commitment card you will receive in the mail this week.
3. Bring your completed card to worship on Sunday, and place it on the altar as we sing our hymn of invitation. Kneel and pray while you’re there. If you have children in your family, perhaps let them carry the card!
Remember that you can change your pledged amount at any time. All we’re asking right now is that you make a commitment and thus become an active part of God’s plan for our mountain climb together. If you won’t be here on Sunday, you can bring your card by the church office at any time.
I am so excited for what is in store on the Lord’s mountain. Let’s climb!
all good things to each of you,
Pastor (Dr.) Darian
