Welcome to the Spring BCUMC Pastor’s Desk! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, and are beginning to enjoy some warm sunny weather. As we look ahead to the last Sunday in April, and all of May, I wanted to share with you the title of my upcoming sermon series, “Character Under Construction.” In this series, I will be discussing the importance of how we think and guard our hearts. Also, how when we live our lives under the authority of Christ, we then receive the fruit of the Spirit. I love this quote by Sophie McDonald which states, “Building our character means for us to guard our hearts by filtering our emotions, desires, thoughts, and responses through His Word.” My series will look at scripture which will help us do just that! I hope you will come join us at 9:30 a.m. Sundays. The schedule is as follows:

4/28/19 Controlling Our Thoughts – Ephesians 4:20-24; Proverbs 28:26; Romans 12:1,2.

5/5/19 Guarding Our Hearts – Proverbs 4; Jude 1:21; Psalms 18:30; Proverbs 2:7,8; Psalms 119:9.

5/12/19 Mother’s Day Service – Deuteronomy 4:9,10. Verses which speak to watching ourselves closely, for we are always teaching, and our main responsibility is to teach children about God.

5/19/19 Keeping Good Company – Proverbs 13:20; Psalms 1:1-4.

5/26/19 Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-25.

Don’t forget to check out our website for many other opportunities that might interest you. We would love for you to get involved.
