From Liberty UMC
Greetings from Liberty United Methodist Church under the pastoral leadership of the Rev. Rochelle
Our church is similar to most churches that have more than one type of worship service. We have Sunday school at 9:45 a.m., regular worship service at 11 a.m., Tuesday prayer service at 5 p.m., Wednesday Bible study at 6 p.m. and we encourage all members to attend because these services equip us to have a better daily walk with God.
The last two weeks during the absence of our pastor, who was in Kentucky studying at Asbury Theological Seminary, we were lead by lay servants.
July 27, we received an encouraging message from one of our certified lay servants, Ella Dumas. The message was titled “Take off the old and put on the new” from Ephesians 4:22-24.
We learned that as we grow closer to Jesus Christ, we need to let go of some old things such as hatred, jealousy, envy and being unable to forgive. After we have done these things, hopefully these things will go away forever and be replaced with new characteristics that are more Christlike.
We have used as many as 10 different lay people in the morning worship. We encourage members of all ages to utilize their spiritual gifts
Upon our pastor’s return from school, her Aug. 3 message was titled “When the song is over, what are you going to do?” from Daniel 5:1-10, 13, 17-30.
You are cordially invited to share in our spiritual revival, which is underway through Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. The keynote speaker is Dr. Eddie Jones, Griffin United Methodist Church, Starkville.
