We are truly bless if Jesus is our Lord and Savior


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Life can grind even the best of us down unless we take time to count our blessings. For the Christian, the greatest blessing of all and the one that enables us to face life’s challenges with a sense of peace and hope is that we have Jesus Christ in our lives. It is through Christ that we are saved from our sinful nature and the consequences of that nature and that means we will spend eternity with Him when this life is over. Our earthly lives are brief things and so knowing where we will be in eternity is more important than anything else we might experience in the brief lives we lead this side of eternity. That blessing alone should sustain us and give us hope, but it is not the only blessing we receive from having Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We also have the knowledge that He will never leave nor forsake us, not only in eternity, but in this life as well, but will be there with us throughout any and all the challenges we face. We can turn to Him and lay it all at His feet, secure in the knowledge that His love, wisdom and power will enable us to triumph in the end. Jesus is the greatest blessing of all and all of us can share in that blessing if we choose to do so.


Missionaries at Grace United Methodist Church

On Sunday, Jan. 24, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Grace UMC Fellowship Hall, Ashleigh and Philip Irwin will share their experiences as Missionaries in Southeast Asia. Ashleigh (from Indiana and great niece of Carolyn and Johnny Turner) and Philip (from Virginia) met on a mission trip while in college. Their relationship grew, they married and both felt a calling to serve in Southeast Asia. In answering the call to ministry, Philip went to seminary at Liberty University and they began learning the language and customs of the country.

Ashley and Philip will also introduce their daughters, Bella (4 years old) and Emma (two years old). Bella was born in the United States and Emma was born in Hong Kong. The girls are also missionaries as Bella has already demonstrated her faith when they visited a Buddhist Temple. Bella spoke boldly that their god will break and cannot talk to you.
