September MISSION

UMCOR- Kentucky Flood Disaster

Eastern Kentucky has experienced historic flooding that has claimed the lives of more than 37 individuals, with many people still unaccounted for. Hundreds of homes were destroyed and hundreds more severely damaged. UMCOR has awarded a solidarity grant to the Kentucky Annual Conference and delivered nearly 3000 kits during the first week of the disaster. The conference Disaster Response Coordinator with the UMCOR trained Early Response Teams(ERTs) are deploying to the affected areas. When disaster strikes in the U.S., it is local churches that provide the first response to their communities. UMCOR provides training, financial assistance, and community collaborations to churches and partner. The best way to assist in this time of need is to provide financial assistance. Please remember that any money sent to UMCOR and designated to a specific need is always given 100% to that need. In this way we can resupply materials already sent out and provide for other needs of this community. If you choose to assist with this mission project, you may place your offering the offering basket near the sanctuary doors using a blue mission offering envelope for cash, mail your check to the church office, or use the online giving option. Please mark on the envelope or your check, UMCOR- Kentucky Flood Disaster. Thank you for your generous and giving hearts that see the need of those around us.

Created to worship.

Worship is essential to God’s plan of redemption and provides a strategic avenue for God’s entry into an alienated world. An illustration of this is found in the Lord’s Prayer, which begins with worship: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” Then, it extends the invitation “…Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:9, 10). When we pray in the manner that Jesus taught His disciples, we are first, with worship, reaching into the invisible realm and then, on the grounds of our worship, welcoming the entry of His divine authority, rulership, and power into this world.

At Wesley, we believe that a natural reflection of our love for God is worship. And that worship should invade every aspect of our lives.

Jesus is the center.

Jesus is central to everything we do. We sing, pray, and preach in His powerful name. Our past, present, and future are centered on Jesus Christ. Our purpose on this earth is to make much of Jesus Christ.

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

Colossians 1:16-17
