From Pastor’s Desk – October

My Dear Church Family,

I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now.   Philippians 1:3-5

There are just no words to express how incredibly honored I have felt over the last few months to know each one of you.

Each precious hug and conversation will be treasured in my heart always. I already miss every person from our summer church family.

The rest of us continue our faith walk among the clouds, our prayers to God of thanksgiving for his faithfulness and grace, continuing to grow as we gather together every Sunday to worship.

Fall has arrived, and the mountains are full of colors, and we are planning and working on new things for the new year.

As we go forth in faith, we are working to answer the question, “What is God calling Cloudcroft United Methodist Church to be in the Cloudcroft Community?”

Please keep our church in your prayers as we discern Gods’ perfect plan for us.

In order to keep in touch and up-to-date with the happenings of our church, we will be sharing with you a monthly newsletter. My prayer is that it will be informative, inspiring, and keep us connected as we move through the seasons.

I’m looking forward to doing ministry together,

Your Pastor Frances

Live Streaming!

We are now video broadcasting via Facebook Live for Sunday Worship Services and other special events!

Christ commands us to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15). Live streaming allows us to fulfill the great commission and reach people we’ve never reached before. During the month of September, we reached over 400 people via streaming.

Today most people start their search for a church on Google instead of walking through the church doors. Broadcasting our services online shows seekers a glimpse of the community they can join.   It also allows our members who are home sick, their caregivers, vacationers, or those gone for the winter, to stay connected and be a part of what’s happening despite their distance.

Showcasing our sermons and services online makes new families more comfortable with who we are, what we’re about, and what they should expect from our ministry. We record each service so they are now available online (24×7) at cloudcroftumc.org & facebook.cloudcroftumc.org.

We need help to provide this ministry weekly, To help with this important ministry, please contact us http://cloudcroftumc.org/contact/

Prayers for October

Household Prayer: Morning

Help us, God, as we rise this day, to seek out your will as we enjoy the good and suffer through the bad.

Prove us, O God, and try us so that we can learn the steps we need to take to follow your ways.

Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

When I felt like a dejected child, rejected and lost, your comfort surrounded me, and I felt as if I was home.

Thank you for your embracing heart, for making me feel special and loved, for helping me up, and for saying that you are my brother, my Savior, my friend.

Thank you, Jesus.

Amen.
