The Book of Jonah begins June 7

The Hands of Hope will start a new study Sunday June 7 @ 10:10 am on ZOOM lead by Jeff Cooper, “The Book of Jonah” by Eric Mason. “At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run…

“The Reason for God” ZOOM Study Begins Tonight!

New Adult Study begins tonight! The Searching Our Heritage/Discipleship class begins “The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism” by Timothy Keller. How could a loving God send people to hell? Why does he allow suffering? Can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”? Responding to the questions of open skeptics and ardent believers, Keller draws from literature, philosophy, reason, and real-life conversations to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief.  Contact Adults@genesis-umc.org if…

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12) “More than 23,000 people from 102 countries have volunteered to be a part of a test to find an antidote for the Covid-19 Coronavirus. The testers will voluntarily infect themselves with the virus as part of a global project called One Day Sooner. The goal of the program is to find a vaccine…

“David retorted to Michal, “I was dancing before the Lord, who chose me above your father and all his family! He appointed me as the leader of Israel, the people of the Lord, so I celebrate before the Lord. Yes, and I am willing to look even more foolish than this, even to be humiliated in my own eyes!” – This passage in the Bible describes how David was celebrating God while bringing the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem. We know that David…

 “may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,” For the last two weeks I have been wrestling with this verse. It turns out this is the key verse for our Summer VBS, so I will be wrestling with it longer. This is a daunting verse from Paul. When he says “to grasp” he is implying I am not capable of understanding the love of Christ.…

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition, present your requests to God. . The latest news about the coronavirus is always in front of us. News programs, social media, youtube, etc. It is hard to turn them off. Constantly seeing the news makes me anxious. It makes me think about what might happen, but has not. It makes me focus on the negative. I go back to this verse in Philippians often to…

A miktam of David. Keep me safe, my God,    for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;    apart from you I have no good thing.” I say of the holy people who are in the land,    “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.” Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,    for in you I take refuge.I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings    until the disaster has passed.  I…

3:16 Devotion May 12

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?” I really like this passage from Luke. Jesus was talking about the cost of being a disciple. The most known part of this passage is “whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.” It’s a powerful and scary statement. He followed it with other analogies. To make…

Even though we are stuck in our homes, we should be thankful.  I am making efforts to be thankful for: It’s starting to get a little better in some areas.  Some shops will be opening soon.  We can order some take-out food, when we are tired of cooking.  We have devices to stay connected.  We can go on walks.  We can mail letters.  We can write and most of all we can Pray!  I am praying we can go back to church together soon. During this time…

A Pollyanna story that’s true    “… those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.             My high school participated faithfully and joyfully in the American Field Service Exchange program, which has grown into the study-abroad movement. And I was a foreign student from New Jersey when my family moved to Tulsa, OK. From 9th grade, I identified with the AFS kids…
