World Wide Communion Sunday, October 7, 2012
World Communion Sunday is one of the special Sundays for Christians all over the world. On this day we celebrate our oneness in Christ, that He is One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One Father of us all. The offering we will take next Sunday will support the work of the United Methodist Church in providing ministries that bring peace and stability to our world as we participate in a world-wide Christian church. For those who do not have Communion envelopes there will be a Communion envelope in the worship bulletin on Sunday.

Read PROVERBS 3:5-6 
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 
6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)
 
Prayer: 
One of God’s gracious commands is to trust in the Lord with all your heart and to acknowledge Him in all your ways.  For some us, we need to TRUST in the Lord. For others, we need to NOT LEAN on our own understanding. For others still, we need to ACKNOWLEDGE the Lord in everything we do so that He makes our path straight. You know which category you fall into. Pray for God's guidance as we trust Him to help us navigate this maze called Life.
May the God of all strength strengthen you and the God of all power empower you to trust in Him.
Peace, Pastor Kofi.

Devotional: Week of August 27-September 2

Read ACTS 2:38-39
38 Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call." (NIV)

Prayer: Pray for the willingness and ability to sincerely confess and repent of any wrongdoing, misplaced ideas, and loss of spiritual passion.

May the God of all grace fill you with strength and peace.
Pastor Kofi.
