Minor says ‘it’s not how you start, but how you finish’

2015-04-01 12.24.26

Rev. Rochelle Ashford-Minor of Liberty United Methodist Church said it is not how you start but how you finish, and Jesus finished well. Ashford-Minor served as the guest speaker for the final Lenten Lunch event at Eupora’s First United Methodist Church. Finishing up the series on Jesus’ last words from the cross, Ashford-Minor spoke on the “It is Finished” statement of Jesus. Join Eupora FUMC for Good Friday Service for holy communion and prayer on Friday, April 3 from 6-7 p.m. in the sanctuary. This will be a ‘come and go’ opportunity to pray and receive the Sacrament in remembrance of Jesus’ death on the cross, and to prepare for the glory of His resurrection on Easter Sunday!

Tucker asks ‘what are you not ENOUGH of?’

 

2015-03-18 12.31.26Rev. Matt Tucker of Bellefontaine United Methodist Church and Lebanon UMC asks the Eupora UMC Lenten Lunch crowd “What are you not ENOUGH of?””What keeps you from doing God’s will? What are you not ENOUGH of?–Some say they are not smart ENOUGH, skinny ENOUGH, strong ENOUGH…What keeps you from ministry?” Tucker asked those attended the Lenten Lunch Series at Eupora’s First United Methodist Church to take three squares of toilet tissue and write the word ENOUGH on it. When they had the answer to the question “What are you not ENOUGH of?” — they were to throw that reason –that excuse– in the toilet. Rev. Tucker also discussed his role as Jesus in “The Last Days of Christ” program at Kosciusko UMC, that will be held April 2-4 at the church. Each year, he conducts a personal Bible study to examine the role of Christ during Holy Week and how the disciples and the crowds reacted to the message of the Gospel unfolding before their eyes.  The Lenten Lunch Series continues next Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. March 25, in the Eupora FUMC fellowship hall with Rev. Hugh Bland of Walthall Baptist Church serving as the guest speaker. A soup and sandwich lunch will be served. The public is invited to attend.

Gray kicks off Lenten Lunch Series: ‘Words From The Cross’

2015-03-04 12.17.53Rev. Travis Gray from First Baptist Church of Eupora shared a few thoughts on Christ’s final words from the Cross, “Father, forgive them…” as part of the Lenten Luncheon Series “Words from the Cross” at Eupora’s First United Methodist Church.

“Christ’s words say ‘I love’ even when I don’t deserve it…His words say ‘I love you’ even when no one else loves you.”

“Do our words and actions say ‘I love you, Lord?’ Do our words say ‘Thank you Lord for what you have done for me? For dying on the cross for me?’ Do our words say, “Father forgive me because I recognize what I have done?'” Continue reading

Evangelist from India shares the ministry of Gospel Friends

2014-10-09 12.41.31Rev. Ron McDougald said Ghuna Kumar is the “most bold and yet caring Christian” he has ever met “in terms of sharing the gospel and living it out.”
