Pastor MartinA MESSAGE FROM PASTOR MARTIN

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION MONTH
Theme: Christian Education is not just for children

When we hear the “Call to Change: Repent & Believe the Gospel” we must begin building on our foundation. Christian education, ie., spiritual formation, is our foundation. It is not just for people of young age. It is for everyone.

Christian Education gives us strength as we grow and mature. This is the brick and mortar of our foundation of bridging the gap between institutional religion and spirituality.

September is Christian Education Month and to celebrate we are offering a six-week spiritual formation class by Adam Hamilton entitled:  Revival: Faith as Wesley lived it. Join Adam Hamilton for a six-week journey as he travels to England, following the life of John Wesley and exploring his defining characteristics of a Wesleyan Christian. Wesley’s story is our story. It defines our faith and it challenges us to rediscover our spiritual passion. Wesley’s message and his faith continue to speak to 21st-century Christians—calling for a revival of our hearts and souls so that our world might be changed.

Study of God’s word is one of our spiritual disciplines that helps develop our faith over time. A spiritual discipline is a good habit that allows you to remain open to God and develop yourself spiritually. Discipline is one of the hardest things for us to learn. By studying God’s word we keep our eyes on God more often. When we focus on God, we stop letting other things get in our way or cloud our vision. Our lives find a clarity when we become more disciplined in our faith.

John Wesley believed that the “means of grace” included both “works of piety” (instituted means of grace) and “works of mercy” (prudential means of grace). Works of piety included:… prayer, whether in secret or with the great congregation; searching the Scriptures; (which implies reading, hearing, and meditating thereon;) and receiving the Lord’s Supper, eating bread and drinking wine in remembrance of Him. Wesley taught that people must be Christians in both word and deed, which were to express the love of God. He believed that Christians must grow in God’s grace, which first prepares us for belief, then accepts us when we respond to God in faith, and sustains us as we do good works and participate in God’s mission.

I thank you in advance for your participation. I know that God is shaping us to be Kingdom people centering on Jesus the Christ as our Lord and Savior. Come and dine with us!—Pastor J
