Welcome To Our Church!

 

WELCOME!

We're so glad you have taken time to visit our website! The Mulberry St. Methodist Church is a fellowship of people who gather to love, care, heal, work, and explore the everlasting friendship with Jesus Christ. The church is not a corporate structure, but a place where we can prepare and do God's work. There is a particular description in the Bible where Jesus says "the field is the world" (Matthew 13:38). A farmer's field is where he plants his crops and does his work. As a church family, and those who wish to join us, we seek to do ministry and good works in the field, meaning the world.

Make plans to join us! As you worship and study God's Word with us, we are sure you will find joy and hope! As you get acquainted with others in this Mulberry St. family, you will also find encouragement and support! As you learn more about our out-reach programs you will be excited to participate! But mostly, growing in your relationship with Jesus Christ, you will find everlasting peace, assurances, and blessings that reflect His amazing, un-measurable love!

    Taking time for introspection and reflection is an important element in making Lent more meaningful.

    40 Days of Lent: Find your own spiritual path

    During Ash Wednesday services on the first day of Lent, many United Methodist pastors will invite their congregations “to observe a holy Lent: by self–examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self–denial; and by reading and meditating on God's Holy Word” (from the United Methodist Book of Worship). While you may be aware of this season leading up to Easter, you may wonder how you might “observe a holy Lent.”

    There is no one prescribed way. Instead, we are each encouraged to find our own method of confronting our sinfulness, remembering our mortality, and giving thanks for the gift of salvation we receive through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

    Fasting

    One of the more common practices is to give something up for Lent. Some abstain from chocolate, social media, shopping, or something else through the season. This is a religious practice known as fasting. We fast to reorient ourselves away from the distraction of those things, and back toward God.

    Another way to reorient your life toward God, is to focus on devotional practices like Bible study and prayer during the season.

    Bible reading

    Many do not know where to begin when reading the Bible. The Upper Room Daily Devotional Guide and Alive Now will help guide you in this pursuit. Each day they provide a scripture passage and wonderfully thought-provoking and spirit-enriching material to read and think about.

    Prayer  

    In the busyness of our everyday lives, prayer can sometimes get squeezed out. Lent is a wonderful time to intentionally work toward finding more time in your life for prayer. You can experiment with different ways to pray during the season, or really delve into a new-to-you way of praying. Enriching your prayer life is a great way to spend Lent.

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
