A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR


My serious recommendation in 2017 is for you to attend Sunday School, hear the Word proclaimed on Sunday mornings at First Church Baldwin United Methodist, fellowship with Spiritual Champions at our coffee hour, and then do the crazy thing as though we are super bowl winners each Sunday: Go to Disney! That is right; go enjoy a Disney movie, for instance: Moana. 

The tendency is to become too involved or not involved at all in learning the promises of God through the historical events from the Creation to the Crucifixion, when God, Church, and family fun is all above what God has already done good in the world for the people of God. God has given the gift of life eternal, so be happy for our hope, love, joy and peace is assured from the cradle into eternal celebration. 

Yes, Jesus Christ has been here, done that, and He is coming back again. On the in between of the Alpha and Omega...might we enjoy the show? I plan to show up in the fruitful congregation of Baldwin, then Marie and I gonna pray, then stay awake for the show. Christ is showing up; Jesus is soon to come. Ready for the grand appearance? Our hope is set on Jesus.

Come Lord Jesus, come!!!
