Hampstead UMM


a moving experience

On March 3, 2018 this crew moved a donated shed to church grounds.  This shed will be used for storage until the fall festival and then sold when the contents are removed and sold.

Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

WORDS FROM THE UMM PRESIDENT


Wanted to get an email out to all regarding today and the joys the people of Jerusalem surely felt as Jesus entered the city. Hope most definitely was streaming through the hearts of the people as Passover was fast approaching and Jesus was in their presence. Try to imagine being there: the festive atmosphere, the smiling faces, the warmth of love that surely enveloped the town. Put that feeling  in your heart as we move forward into Holy Week.

As I type this, there is an eleven year old girl on Little Big Shots singing ‘Halleluyah’ with Pentatonic (an a cappelle group) backing her up. Absolutely beautiful voice and it makes me think of Jesus riding on a donkey into the city as the people rejoice – “Hosanna to the Son of David (Messiah); Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest heaven”.

As you enter this week, find time to think of moments you have experienced that brought you great joy! In turn, use those memories to feed God’s Love to others. Be a friend, be a joy, be a reflection of Christ.

PROJECT OF THE WEEK

On February 19 we installed a metal ramp. These ramps are much easier to install and can be re-used. This photo was taken as the crew was called inside to lunch. Life is good.  God is good!!
