For the Week Beginning Sunday – February 25, 2001
Volume 78 – Number 8
Since the birth of the church we have been ordered of our Lord and created to
be centered on giving the story of Jesus to others. Our Lord’s parting words
were to “go into all the world and make disciples.” Included in the
commission was the strong compelling thrust that we were to live beyond
ourselves. God so loved the world that he sent himself through his Son as a
missionary of redemption. All of us who put on Christ are likewise sent to
reconcile the world to the living God. This is the work of the Holy Spirit.
You are invited to attend the East Nashville Cooperative Ministry’s Lenten
Lunches at the fellowship hall of Tulip Street Methodist Church (6th and
Russell) each Wednesday starting February 28 and continuing through April 11.
Information available in Library / Ministry Center.

INVEST IN A MINISTRY
It is imperative that God’s people invest in doing the work and will of our
risen Lord! Each person must find his or her own way of allowing God’s grace
to bless friends and neighbors. So……invest in God’s work, and he will
invest himself into your life and your own personal situation. It is
impossible to out-give God. This is a high-yield opportunity.”Seek first
His kingdom and his righteousness……” You can know more by reading Matthew
6:25-33. Click here for more information on how to get involved.
