Pastor's Message

    Greetings to one and all at the Paradise United Methodist Church. 

        As we move into 2017, I pray for exciting and mighty things to happen here at the Paradise United Methodist Church. It is our job together to make disciples for Christ. To make disciples we are doing many things. We are moving forward with the building of the new sanctuary. As many of you folks know, the old sanctuary is in much needed repair with repairs needed to the foundation, the floor, the roof and the structure as a whole. The cost to repair would be almost the cost on a new building, or perhaps more, so with unamious approval from the Paradise Church Conference, we are continuing to move forward with the project. We are waiting for permits and final details to begin this project. Please keep this in your prayers. We also have some exciting minitries going on that we are trying to reach out to the community and the world. In Januuary, we started a new Bible study on the book of Romans. Some scholars say this is the greatest book in the Bible. We invite you to come and join us.

        Personally, my desire is for each person to grow in their spiritual walk, growing closer to God. As your shepherd, I want to do what I can to empower you to do that, whether it is through worship services, Bible studies or even some social time together. Our goal and mission statement for Paradise Uniited Methodist Church is: Sharing the Gospel with all, and Sharing our Lives with each other.  The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, and between those two mission statements, that is what my/our goal will be.

    My challenge for each of you in 2017 is to study the Word of God daily, attended church, Sunday School and bible study regularly. Above all of that, is to commit yourselves to pray for this church and its ministries.

     Let me close with a scripture from Romans, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God's power for salvation to everyone who beleives. Romans 1:16aHCSB

    

In ministry together with the Master,

 

Pastor Roger Howard
