What It’s Like When You Visit Our Church

by Rick Rickabaugh      April 16, 2017

During our awesome Easter Sunday service, we had the opportunity to joyfully welcome nine new members into our congregation. This event made me stop and think about many of the programs that are available and are accomplished here in this small church. I first thought of some words from the dictionary that are normally thought of as nouns but are actually done here as verbs. Some of those would be family, community, faith, love, and Bible.

We are a community that believes in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and God as Our Father. Because of these beliefs, we can say that “we family, we community, we faith, we love, and we Bible. When we do these things to the best of our abilities, we can say that we live the credal statement of the Lakehurst United Methodist Church:
“To think with the mind of Christ, to love with the heart of Christ, to do the works of Christ.”
