The Purpose, Power and Promise of Prayer

Sunday, June 22, 2014

It’s great to be home!  Many of you know that the Western North Carolina Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church met this past week and actually concludes today. Given our staff transitions, I needed to come back yesterday. And speaking of our transitions, I’m once again thankful for our volunteers who have graciously stepped forward in many dimensions of ministry, but especially in helping us conduct four services with one pastor on site! That’s pretty remarkable. Of course, even more remarkable is the incredible Vacation Bible School just finished which between parents, volunteers, children and youth touched hundreds of people.  And now over 100 youth and a huge number of leaders are on a home repair mission trip in South Carolina. This is indeed, a great congregation.
