Our church, First United Methodist Church Hillsville, is about to embark on a new adventure with God! It is exciting to be a part of God’s work in Carroll County! We are going to become a multi-site church. What does this mean? A church with more than one place of worship. We will be ONE church in TWO locations! We will have our “Main Campus” on Fulcher Street and a second “campus” on Main Street in Hillsville. The plans for this new worship center are in the works. There is much to do in the coming weeks and months ahead.
As we are all aware, when doing God’s work, there are always challenges to overcome. So today I would like to place a request before you and ask you to please be in prayer everyday for our church leaders and her ( the church) people. Following God’s call requires much faith, sacrifice, integrity, devotion, committment, work, passion and love for Him.
It’s not about us, it’s about GOD.
What can we do to bring God to others?
What did God do to bring Jesus to us?
What did Jesus do to bring God to us?
Think about it….
The ultimate sacrifice.
Let us pray Psalm 61 together today-for God to guide us up “High Rock Mountain!”
Psalm 61 ( MSG)
A David Psalm
1-2God, listen to me shout, bend an ear to my prayer.
When I’m far from anywhere,
down to my last gasp,
I call out, “Guide me
up High Rock Mountain!”
3-5 You’ve always given me breathing room,
a place to get away from it all,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house,
an open invitation as your guest.
You’ve always taken me seriously, God,
made me welcome among those who know and love you.
6-8 Let the days of the king add up
to years and years of good rule.
Set his throne in the full light of God;
post Steady Love and Good Faith as lookouts,
And I’ll be the poet who sings your glory—
and live what I sing every day
Let us be lookouts for steady love and good faith and let us always sing Your Lifesong!
