Welcome to Union United Methodist Church's Webpage. Please come and worship God with us during the Contemporary or Traditional Services. We look forward to meeting you.
As seen in Union United Methodist Church's February 2015 Newsletter:
“The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ …”
As bodybuilders train for their craft, they must be dedicated, disciplined and must pay attention to every part of the body. The end goal is to have a strong, well-formed and balanced body. The same is true for us who are charged with building up the Body of Christ – the Church. I am obviously not a physical bodybuilder, but I am dedicated to being continually trained and helping others to be trained in the practices that “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ”.
This is why I have encouraged many in our church to attend leadership conferences and workshops on various areas of ministry in the coming weeks. This is why we spent most of last year focusing on the spiritual disciplines of discipleship (10X10 Journey). It is also the reason we started the Hands On Ministry of prayer. By providing the prayer crosses, prayer shawls and lap quilts, we are also providing the opportunity for many in the church to participate by making the items with their own hands and praying for the recipients. We are also then, providing a ministry of faith and comfort to the parts of the Body who are now weakened by illness or advanced age. The end goal is for more and more parts of the Body to be spiritually “built up”.
I invite and encourage all of you to join me in a dedicated and disciplined regimen of Body-building at UUMC in 2015. As each member is strengthened in faith, knowledge and practice, the entire Body is built up and Jesus Christ is glorified. God bless.
Your servant in Christ & fellow Body-builder,
