Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ – Grace, peace, and joy to you from God has anointed Aldersgate Church to advance the Gospel beyond our greatest imagination. One night I was awakened by God to read Isaiah 40. Immediately, my heart became strangely warm as it was clear to me that God was identifying my calling to Aldersgate Church. Even as I write this article, tears are running down my cheeks and uncontrollable laughter is flowing out of the depth of my soul. Understanding what this means will come later; but for this moment I ask you to read and meditate on Isaiah 40, pray for God’s revelation, and talk openly among yourselves about what God is doing.
Aldersgate Church has a rich legacy. While she has endured many storms and perhaps drifted off course a few times, the faithful core of Aldersgate Church has remained steadfast, prayerful, and hopeful. Because of this, God has heard the cries of His people. And, God has sent me to bring you comfort and Godly leadership that will empower Aldersgate Church to set sail once again.
Thank you for patiently waiting for the Good Tidings. As you read through the many pages you will see how the people of Aldersgate Church have been extremely enthusiastic and active, embracing the “new” God is doing here. This will be especially depicted in articles like the Trumpet Sounds of Praise, the staff bios, Hoppy Time and the Amazing Adventures Zone in the Children’s Ministry, the ministries, classes, and mission opportunities and outreaches, and growth. God is doing great things and we are just getting started.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND PLAN TO ATTEND, the 2020 Vision Casting/ Church Conference at 6PM on Sunday, November 24th in the Fellowship Hall. Whether you are a member or not, all are encouraged to attend this momentous evening.
