Thoughtful Prayer

Thoughtful Prayer Requested by Popular Demand

Heavenly Father, 
We acknowledge you as Lord, maker of all things, creator of heaven and earth.  We are so grateful you chose us to participate in your creation and empowered us to have dominion over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air. 
Forgive us, O Lord, for neglecting to take our calling seriously and instead spending far too much time and energy trying to accumulate what we want or trying to be dominant over one another.  Grant us wisdom that we might know your voice and your path.  Help us understand one another as brothers and sisters.  Allow us to seek and to sit for wise counsel that reflects your way for us and to know when we are being duped.  Empower persistence in us for what is good and right in our lives. 
May your Spirit convict us of sin so that our souls become grieved to the place of repentance.  And may we seek forgiveness, that we might become pure and blameless.  Help us put on humility and a sense of the reverence we need to have for you as we come together as your children. 
In Jesus name, Amen .

Invitation to A Camping Retreat

The UMM group invites all interested men to a camping retreat at the Vortex Spring Camping Park located in the Panhandle region. Also, for those who know Fred Wood, the park is near his new home up north so we’ll stop there and say hello to him. The camping retreat is scheduled for the weekend of October 23-25, 2020.

It is an opportunity for all of the men young or old to get together and fellowship with the Lord and each other. Besides camping, there are trails to hike on and kayaks or canoes to paddle around the park’s clear waterways. You can also try your hand at campfire cooking. Who knows, you may win a blue ribbon or a least a pat on the back!

For more information, contact Herman Small at 813 927 1606.

Silver Saints

Silver Saints Forward and Together !

If you haven’t hear about Silver Saints, it is the senior ministry of our church.  Most of us may have silver hair (some covered with dye!) but that doesn’t mean we are sitting around in our rocking chairs.

This group meets quarterly with a themed meeting, a meal, games, devotions and lots of good fellowship. 

Susan Ivins, Marlen and Dave Rose serving Rich Cockburn on Valentine’s Day.

We also do service projects in the community.  The last one we completed was reading to the children at Bridges.  Currently, because of social distancing, we have been unable to meet in person, but we are staying in touch through email.  If you’d like to get on the email list for updates, let Susan Ivins know at

Right now, our service project is supporting the Operation Shoebox ministry.  We have volunteer runners who are ready to pick up your items at the store or your home and bring them to the church.  We are anxiously waiting for our next in person meeting and will be sure to let you know about it. We hope that you can join us at that time.  We don’t care what your age is, but certainly we’ll be happy to see you!

Wesley Teams Up with International Volleyball Club

Wesley Teams Up With International Volleyball Club

Good News! Wesley has teamed up with International Volleyball Club to provide training and camps for young women in our community.

If you haven’t been inside the gym lately, you may have noticed a few more lines on the floor of the gym as we expanded from being able to host one volleyball game to two games. As our partners, IVC made this possible because they made a substantial investment in high-quality nets and poles. As partners, we agreed that other volleyball clubs can come and use the facility to train and compete. At the same time, if you know of any other volleyball clubs or league in your social networks that may be looking for a sports facility, tell them about our gym. Chip in a Good Word for Wesley’s facility!!

Many thanks to George Mummert of Wesley who did a fabulous job of drilling the holes that were needed, installing the sleeves to hold the net poles and the floor plates, and laying out the lines, which we provided.

We praise God for His provision! Please contact Leslie Berlin for more information at
