New Year, New You!

At least, that's what all the ads say right?! Try this product, exercise here, eat this, set these goals... Just 5 easy steps to a new you?

I wish it were all that easy. While we do receive new life through a relationship with Jesus Christ (call me if you want to know more about that 😉), we still have to learn to live fully into that new life. At the start of a new year, many of us set goals, speak intentions, or make resolutions to somehow be transformed into a better version of ourselves. 

This year, as we begin to worship together, we'll look at what it means to steward our money in a biblical way. "Money Matter$" is a worship series you'll want to invite your friends to!

We'll also begin the year with an opportunity to really talk to each other about what it means to live in unity with Christ and with each other. Our book study, Disunity in Christ, is a collaboration of United Methodist Churches throughout Rowan County. There are many opportunities to participate - click HERE to learn more and sign up.

Additionally, we have two opportunties to hear more about A Way Forward, the discussion The United Methodist Church is having about our denominational statements regarding human sexuality. My hope is that we will all prayerfully approach these opportunities with a heart of peace.

At the dawn of this new year, I too am hoping for a new you. A new me. A new us. I am hoping that we are all more fully transformed  into the Image of Christ. I am hoping for a church, community, nation, and world that more accurately depicts the Kingdom of God. As we journey into 2019, will you hope with me?

Blessings,
Pastor Kris
