Global Young People’s Convocation and Legislative Assembly

I have been elected as a voting Delegate to help lead the team from the South Central Jurisdiction to The Global Young People’s Convocation and Legislative Assembly in Tagaytay, Philippines from July 16-20, 2014. We will gather in Dallas on the 14th and make our way to the Philippines. While it will be a lot of fun there is work to be completed there. I would ask that you hold this event in your prayers as people travel from all over the world to share their faith experiences and as we talk about the Global United Methodist Church.


Here is the Oklahoma Delegation

Good Benediction for today

The beauty of this church is people,

The hope of this church is love,

The blessing of this church is faith,

The glory of this church is hospitality,

The promise of this church is peace.


—Wesley Taylor, Tualatin United Methodist Church, Tualatin, Oregon.

Offertory Prayer from Sunday 7.14.13

God of David, God of Solomon and God of Us. Thank you for the rain. Today we will hear the proverb that the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Lord we don’t fear you but love and respect you and we strive to show this love and respect in many ways. One of the ways we do that is through offering back to you a portion of what we have been blessed with. So as we prepare our whole selves for this offering. May the gifts we offer back to you this morning be used to help change lives to grow closer to you and that those changed lives will then change the world for your kingdom to be established now. We pray as we serve, in Jesus name. Amen.
