We take this opportunity to invite you to explore our church. We are a community who worships, learns and serves together. You are welcome to come, be a part of our church family.
This coming Sunday we will ponder what it means to be a contemplative in action. What exactly does this mean? Was Jesus a contemplative in action? Were the prophets? Are we called to be contemplatives in action? Ponder this scripture reading from James 2:14-18 as we prepare for Sunday. I look forward to getting better acquainted with you all as the new pastor of AUMC. Pastor Matthias Krier
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you?If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food,and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill’, and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that?So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. But someone will say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith. James 2:14-18
WE ARE OPEN FOR WORSHIP.
The Governor has declared Phase II and we are open for business/worship at Aldersgate. We have modified the service, eliminated most physical contact and are social distancing and wearing masks during the services. There are a few more rules to keep everyone safe, but we have been open 3 Sundays now and are glad to be Home at Aldersgate for worship. Join us. Brad Belke
Thinking all is lost after the crucifixion, some of the disciples go fishing on the Sea of Tiberius-a dismal, depressing fishing expedition. Hot, naked, and exhausted, the disciples try valiantly to return to the way things were before they met Jesus. Suddenly a voice from the shore (big rock thrown here): “Catchin’ anything?” “Nah,” they shout back, more depressed than ever. “Then try the other side of the boat!” the voice yells again. Peter stands up to see who this wise guy is. Wait-no, it can’t be-but, yes, it is: the Lord! Suddenly Peter can’t move fast enough. He leaps into the water, and swims to shore, leaving the others to haul in a miraculous catch. His faith grows three sizes in a matter of minutes. The boundaries of what he thinks God can do explode, and his love and gratitude for what God is doing in Jesus Christ, the Lord of Life, is simply too large to fit in the boat any more. -From The Godbearing Life by Kenda Creasy Dean and Ron Foster
