It’s Monday Again

This young man celebrated his birthday in a special way yesterday with a baptism on the Beulah beach with Browns Flat Fellowship (Steve Bradley). He and his family live in Browns Flat and have been attending for a few years. This followed a service in the Tabernacle with uplifting worship leading by Tami Mutch-Ketch and a challenging missional word from Rebecca Perry (Saint John First).
Coastal Church (Campus Pastor Jason Parker) offered its second free August BBQ this week in Barrington. This has been a great bridge-building opportunity and Jason shared, “One of the things I’m excited about is we’ve formed a ministry team that helps plan and execute outreach and compassion ministry that meets on a weekly basis.” Sunday night services at 6:00 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. have been started up again.

I enjoyed a visit with the Deep Water (AJ Thomas) pastoral team last week (pictured above). A video announcement was sent to the Deep Water family over the weekend that AJ & Kelly will be on a leave of absence until the end of 2020 with plans to return in the New Year. AJ is to be commended for building an incredibly strong team and board. During this time Matthew Thomas will be serving as Acting Lead Pastor.District Clergy Care Coordinator, Dr. Allen Lee (Kingswood University), recently recommended this excellent article for pastors and lay leaders as we head into the fall pandemic realities of ministry. Thanks so much, Allen, for all the ways you serve our ministerial tribe – your heart and skill are a great gift!

Surge Youth (Blacks Harbour – Ken Banks) hosted a movie and board games night Friday night with 21 teens present along with several adult helpers. This was their first time back in the building since the pandemic began. Youth Pastor Bradford Jordan shared a report from one parent, “Kids came in the room this morning just beaming and talking fast about last night. They both had a GREAT time. There is a real spirit of excitement as we prepare to offer our regular youth program this fall while observing public health guidelines.”Zach Coffin, Director of Next Gen Multiplication & Discipleship, is offering several cohorts for shared learning and support beginning in September in the areas of youth, children, and pastor-care ministry.

This week, Executive Director Tanya Nace led the passionate and hardworking World Hope International (Canada) Team in a two-day planning retreat. Tanya is to be commended for leading the official relief and development arm of The Wesleyan Church of Canada into a season of exciting vision, expansion, and fiscal strength. Great days ahead!

Points to Ponder
  • Hero making is always a downward path to raising up others. Jesus raised a towel as the flag of His Kingdom. (Larry Walkemeyer)
  • Do we focus more on what we can get from our community or on who we can bring to our community? (Rebecca Perry)
  • My fruit grows on other people’s trees. (Bob Buford)

Tee-off begins at 1:00 p.m.

A trophy will be given to the church with the most teams and raising the most funds!

What if COVID-19 is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for leaders to think more strategically
about doing church?
