A Word from Pastor Jon
United Methodists over the years have both embraced and struggled with what being “united” means. In the most recent times, various groups have been birthed in hopes of helping individuals and churches discern faithful ways to express the Christian faith. The Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) has emerged as the voice of United Methodists seeking to embrace and proclaim the historic orthodox Christian faith in these most difficult times.
On Saturday, March 3rd from 10:00am-3:00pm at the Altoona United Methodist Church the Iowa chapter of the Wesleyan Covenant Association (of which Pastor Mike Morgan of Marion is the President) is holding an inspirational event entitled “A FIRM FOUNDATION.” Rev. Dr. Keith Boyette, President of the Global Wesleyan Covenant association and former member of the United Methodist Judicial Council (church version of the supreme court) and Rev. Walter Fenton Development Director of the WCA will be the keynote speakers.
Powerful worship led by Marion Methodist’s Simon Campbell and a team of others will call upon God’s Holy Spirit to enter the church and our individual hearts. There is no cost to the event and a free will offering will be taken for the cost of lunch. ALL Iowa United Methodists are invited to give that day to the church and attend.
I will already be in Altoona attending a Continuing Education event and will attend the Iowa WCA event on Saturday. If it is possible for you to be there it will be a very inspirational and informative event and I encourage all who can to attend.
If the name Simon Campbell sounds familiar to you it is probably because he has helped both Alburnett & Prairie Chapel with our new audio/visual plan and equipment. More important than that Simon is a gifted worship leader and is developing into a very good preacher of the Gospel. I have come to appreciate and respect Simon as well as his ministry to the church.
