Embracing Our Spiritual Poverty
Matthew 5:1-12

July 12, 2020

Detach yourself from earthly possessions that distract and attach ourselves completely to God. Rely completely on God like a beggar relies completely on others for survival. Poor in spirit means an acute awareness of our radical need for God, our poverty of spirit, and this has led us to call out to God in the midst of our darkness, which in turn has led to very intense moments of prayer.  

Join us ONLINE for our Sunday Worship Service

This service will be pre-recorded.

Important message from Pastor Seok-Hwan regarding re-opening our Church for in person worship.

Check back for more details as they become available.

Beatitudes in Matthew 5:1-12 is at the core of Jesus’ teaching. We tend to see the deepest, darkest worst part of ourselves because of our deep wounds. Our wounds begin to define us. We find ourselves no longer being salt and a light that has gone out. But we are more than we know! A light of Christ can be rekindled, and a salt will not lose it flavor. The Beatitudes has the power to push away every negative situation in us and bring about newness, possibility, a way beyond our deep-seated wounds. Christ-like vision can move things in us that we miss in ourselves. It is time for us to see the blessedness in us as Jesus taught us. Looking through the eyes of Beatitudes, we are able to recover and enjoy blessedness in each of us. (Companions in Christ: The Way of Blessedness, the Upper Room)

Social Justice Interest Group
Tuesday, July 14 • 7:00-8:30 pm 
via Zoom

(Zoom details will be emailed closer to the date)

“The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. John Wesley and the early Methodists expressed their opposition to societal ills such as slavery, smuggling, inhumane prison conditions, alcohol abuse, and child labor. Learn how we continue in ministries of justice today, and find places where you can serve." UMC website  

Inviting all interested members to be witnesses for justice and peace and join the formation of a social justice interest group. Together we will prayerfully evaluate, share hopes and concerns, and plan for our work regarding today’s social justice issues. Possibilities for the group may include self-education, discussion groups, providing learning opportunities for the congregation, and action.  

The United Methodist Church has a multitude of resources to assist in education and action on today’s issues in our country and the world.

“Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” (Romans 14:19)
