.. .. . .. 2014 Theme: “ON
PURPOSE" John 6:38
to the First United Methodist Church of Hyattsville website.
Welcome to our church webpage. My prayer is that as you
check out our site, you will be able to get a glimpse of
our faith community and some of the ministries that we are
engaged in as God is transforming our lives. If you are
seeking a place where you can experience the love of God
and grow deeper in your faith, First Church is the place
you want to be, come and join us. 2014 is our year for Purposeful
Our church theme for 2014 is, " ON PURPOSE."
We know that God has a purpose for us as a faith community.
Our mission and goal for this year is to do some purposeful
living. Each month we will focus on a particular area of
our lives where we will purposefully walk with, and, follow
God. January will be our month of Preparation as we Physically,
Mentally, and Spiritually prepare our whole selves to live
On Purpose for God. As we live our lives "On Purpose"
this year, we will help one another identify their gifts
and talents and offer opportunities for people to use and
share those gifts and talents for Kingdom Building. Everyone
is asked to get a journal and to engage in daily journaling
as we reflect and write down ways in which we are living
our lives, "On Purpose." The journaling will help
us to be able to see how God is moving in our lives in mighty
ways. When we pick up our journals in January 2015, we will
be reading about a different person. We are not going to
be the same Christians in 2015 that we are in 2014. Throughout
this year, we will be Praying On Purpose; We will be Fasting
On Purpose; We will be Serving On Purpose; We will be Worshipping
On Purpose; We will Care for God's Earth On Purpose; and
six other areas we will focus on and develop. Our Purpose
is to Glorify God in everything that we do. I invite you
to come on this journey with us. Join us at First Church,
"On Purpose." To God be All Glory and Honor!
