What a difference a couple of weeks can make!
While our world is rapidly changing in unpredictable ways, the God we serve remains unchanged from age-to-age. Praise God!
The need for the saving grace and restoration Christ brings to the world continues to grow during this time of uncertainty due to the pandemic. Our vision to Know-Live-Share Jesus remains our way-point and will continue to guide our prayers and actions. The circumstances and culture we live in today, require different methods to deliver God’s message of salvation and peace.
A HUGE thank you to Pastor Dale and the A-Team (church staff) for their leadership. This team has quickly developed on-line content (www.aldersgateyork.com, Facebook and YouTube) to reach us in our homes and share the message of Jesus with others in our community and throughout the world. Our new content is amazing! Please use this to stay connected as a church and to share with your friends.
While change is upon us, and necessary, there is a comfort in the routines that have been the building blocks of our faith journeys. I encourage us all to maintain the disciplines that have made Aldersgate strong and relevant for the past 50 years – daily prayer and devotions, reading the Word, financial support, witnessing, connecting with others and caring for those in need.
We serve a sovereign God who has used the local church for over 2,000 years to spread the Gospel near and far. We are thankful for the progress we have made as a Church and we are confident in the future of Aldersgate and our ability to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Please continue to be a bright Light for Jesus, shining through the darkness of this world. Thank you for staying true to Jesus and for finding new ways to reach a world in need!
