April 25 Updates

From Pastor Chuck:


I pray that all of you continue to experience the peace of Christ in this Easter season. This Sunday in worship, we will focus on the future, remembering that the hope we have now should grow as we move along in time. The events of the world can make us lose track of this truth, but as a church, we want to be stewards of that hope, extending it to the world around us. Our Scripture reading for worship is Psalm 22:25-31.

 

At the request of Weber City Police Chief Donald Harding, we have taken on an important task. Please be praying for Scottlin Baker, who is in Law Enforcement Basic School at the Southwest Virginia Criminal Justice Academy in Bristol, Va. After graduation, he will become an officer with the Weber City Police Department. The SVCJA likes to pair a church with an officer in training. A career in law enforcement has always been a valiant choice, and we all know that it has become a more difficult choice these past few years. I told Chief Harding we would be honored to support Scottlin in whatever ways we can.

 

We have some new ministry teams developing. If you're interested, here are some ways to get involved:

  • Children's Ministry. This includes a great summer program under development now. Let Karen Peace know if you're interested in helping. Done well, children's ministry always leads to family outreach.

  • Men's Ministry. Our new Methodist Men's Group meets for breakfast at 9 a.m. the first Saturday of each month. The fellowship has been great, and I can see these Christian men doing some powerful forms of outreach in the near future as they better understand how they fit into the church's larger mission.

  • Altar Guild. This doesn't really exist yet, although we do have a few people who think about flowers in the sanctuary and such. I am hoping to form a group of artistically minded people to explore what's involved in decorating the sanctuary for particular seasons and "high holy" Sundays. Creative types often find this work to be a lot of fun. If this interests you, let me know.

And of course, I'm always interested in hearing about the ministry ideas you are having. Let me know your thoughts!

 

Youth, remember our free district youth event from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5, at Ketron Memorial Methodist Church, 301 Virgil Ave., Kingsport, Tenn. (That's only about 3 miles south of Holston View Methodist, just off Lynn Garden Drive.) The speaker is Jonathan Meo, and the band is Set Apart, made up of students from Kentucky Mountain Bible College.
