District Superintendent Weekly Update

May 15, 2019

District Family,

In I Samuel 12:24, Samuel said to God’s people, “.. be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.” ___ His love/goodness deserves our full faithfulness. Are you with me?

It is May 15th and that means report DUE date!  Thank you so much to those who have yearend reporting all wrapped up. If your info is not in please get it to us ASAP so we can begin our yearend work and district conference prep. Believe me when I say that the Captain and I, especially Bobby who’s a champ, are also glad when our obligations are completed.

I do want to gently remind our Developing Churches that your 4th quarter report is also due now. With the yearend reporting the quarterly info can easily be overlooked. Would you be sure to forward the one extra report that you’re responsible for? Thank you!!

Church Multiplication Sunday is quickly approaching (June 9th). I ask that you pray for, talk about and receive a special offering for church multiplication. You know the drill; you may keep the offering locally for your church planting/multiplication efforts, share the offering with a sister Wesleyan church that’s doing multiplication, or share it with the district for VA/WV efforts. I would love for you to report after June 9th so we can all know by conference what we have accomplished together. I need YOUR help! 

While I have been promoting District Kids Camp (June 16 -21), I also want to make some noise about Never The Same camp for teens. Kid’s Camp info can be found on our district website and NTS info can be found at www.ntscamp.com.  We are renting two big buses for the trip to Southern Wesleyan in July. Alex Parker (Roanoke, Parkway) is our “go to guy” for NTS; feel free to reach out to him at aparker@parkwayroanoke.com. Both annual camps are quality and your students will benefit by being a part.

How was Mother’s Day at your church? I’d love to hear any “gospel stories” that you might have from last Sunday. We had an EXCELLENT day indeed at Clearview in Martinsville for which we are thankful. At The Gathering (Melody Smith) in Parkersburg a young lady crossed the line of faith and will walk into the waters of baptism this coming Sunday! COME ON SOMEBODY!!!!!

This Week’s Prayer Needs:
1.  Lisa Phaup – did real well with the cataract surgery and is responding well. PTL!!
2.  Ida Barnes (Aiken Summit) – needs a touch from the Lord as it relates to a liver condition.
3.  Rev. Roger Gogus (Len’s Creek) – is recovering from surgery and doing better each day. PTL!!!!
4.  Local Churches/Pastors in Transition….. Remlik Wes has called a new Lead Pastor.
5.  DS Unspoken Requests – that can’t be shared on email.  
6.  District Conference & Power – July 14 – 16. You are obligated to be there. 

Have a wonderful week.

Pastor Greg
