What's Really Important?


    Here we are at the start of another calendar year.  It is usually about this time when we think about New Year's Resolutions, commitments we desire to make to provoke life change.  So, I want to talk to you about Five Commitments that will enhance -- not only your life, but -- our church life.


I am committed to Worship -- Through Word, song, and liturgy.  I will praise and thank the One who gave 100% to me.

I am committed to Discipleship --Through reading, studying, meditating, and applying God's Word.  I will seek to grow to become more like Jesus in my thoughts, words, and deeds.

I am committed to Fellowship -- Through developing and deepening friendships with God's people.  I will seek to discover Christ in everyone and to be molded into Christ-likeness.

I am committed to Outreach -- Through sharing Christ with family and friends, I will seek to tell others -- in word and deed - about the hope that is within me.

I am committed to Service -- Through the use of my God-given gifts and graces, I will seek to serve Christ by serving others!


These five commitments will change our life and make Blakely First UMC a better place.


One of the places you might consider serving is the Clothing Room.  The Clothing Room is a ministry of our church to the community.  Needy souls are touched by the generosity of those who serve there.  Clothing and other items are make available for the communithy and in turn, funds are made available to enhance the church's programs and ministries.  The Clothing Room needs more volunteers IMMEDIATELY!  If you are able to give an hour or several hours of your week to volunteer in the Clothing Room, please see Ms. Ann or Mrs. Priscilla NOW.


Grace and Peace to You .... Pastor Tucker
