Matthew 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
This passage ended the “Notes from Pastor Brian” article in the last newsletter. The commission to GO and make disciples… to GO and inspire new followers of Jesus. To GO…
GO: In our summer children’s ministry we will be GO-ing. The Smile Day Camp in the Brandy Springs Park extends our intentional GO-ing into the Mercer community with children’s ministry. With this mid-Tuesday children’s ministry including lunch, games and many other activities geared towards children 3 years olds-6th grade, we intend to GO into the Mercer community with the good news of Jesus Christ. Led by Jaymie Sagulla with guidance from Sandra Rodgers, we intend to GO and share Jesus Christ with Mercer area families. Servant leaders are needed!
GO: Through COPE’s leadership, we served the veterans breakfast during the Memorial Day parade. Instead of expecting the veterans to come to the church, we served them breakfast in front of the Veteran’s Affairs building. Plus, servants from Mercer UMC prayed for those attending the parade at a prayer table hosted by Mercer UMC. By GO-ing to serve, we are intentionally sharing Jesus’ love with those who sacrificed so much.
GO: Each of us has the opportunity wherever we are to make disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing Jesus’ love and telling others about Jesus. So, let’s listen to Jesus’ Great Commission: “GO and make disciples of all nations…” GO.
Because of Jesus,
