Making Appointments

Tomorrow, we have a planning meeting at Laurel Hill United Methodist Church as we prayerfully ask God to help us make appointments and set our ministry calendar up to match the movement of His grace in our midst. I know there are many things that will have to be coordinated together. The more people involved the more connections we have and the greater humility that has to be offered. But, it is worth it. As Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith of the A Team says, “I love it when a plan comes together.”

I have already seen the benefit of making appointments as 2014 begins. I’ve made appointments to be in Gold’s Gym five mornings out of seven and I’ve already dropped four pounds over the last three weeks. I’ve made appointments to be in the studio and the fruit of that will be heard by thousands come spring when we launch our music and teaching subscription site, – “The message of life in the music you love – in snack-size bites.” I’ve made appointments to write and our new books will be released over the next few months starting with The Pathway of Grace: Learning to Walk with God.

Tomorrow’s meeting will also be filled by making appointments to rejoice in worship, to work together in ministry, and to be in mission for the sake of the gospel. It starts at 9:00 AM. If you can’t be there pray for us and while you’re praying ask God what appointments you need to make!

About laurelhillumc

Laurel Hill United Methodist Church is rich in history as a church family committed to a life in Christ. We began in the heart of Varina almost 150 years ago; the church has grown through its existence as a church-hospital in the Civil War, as a circuit church, and survived a disastrous fire which destroyed the sanctuary about 50 years ago. Then, dedicated, Spirit-filled Christians worked hard together to build a new sanctuary. That hard work has continued with many new improvements including a new addition connecting the sanctuary and educational building, the installation of an elevator providing total accessibility throughout both buildings, remodeling the education building and the installation of 18 stained glass windows. Faithful clergy and laity ministering together have established a legacy of dedication and service which enables Laurel Hill to be a beacon of light in our community, in our world and to all who follow for generations to come. In response to the needs of the Varina community, Laurel Hill United Methodist Church also operates the Laurel Hill Weekday School. These programs are an active part of the life and ministry of Laurel Hill UMC. We accept the opportunity through our morning Preschool and After School child care to share our values of love, caring, cooperation and forgiveness. The Church and child care programs work together to enhance the spiritual, mental and physical growth of children in our community. Our worship services are held each Sunday with a contemporary service at 8:45am and a traditional service at 11:00am. Sunday School begins at 9:45am. Call our office (804) 795-2772 for Bible Study times and other ministry opportunities.
