WELCOME PASTOR SHEA!
Students and Parents, I’m fired up to join the United Student Ministries team. Most of you have already heard the announcement but if you haven’t, I’m honored to inform you that I am now the Pastor of Student Ministry here at First Methodist Church. We’re already planning for 2021. And I can’t wait to meet you all and share with you what God has put on my heart for this ministry.
The theme word and verse for us throughout 2021 is bold. In Acts Chapter 4, Peter and John, these unschooled and ordinary men, were testifying to what they had seen and heard and sharing the Good News of Jesus’ resurrection. Miracles are happening. The religious leaders try and detain them and threaten them but they can’t stop the Good News of salvation in Christ from spreading. When Peter and John come back to their community, the first thing they all do together is pray. And then Acts 4:31 says, ‘After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.’
I can’t wait to see the way God is going to move in the same way through United Student Ministries in 2021. I’ll see you soon. And until then, please pray boldly for me, Andrew, Casey, Kim, and Logan. God bless you!
