.. .. . .. 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!
MORNING PRAYER – for FUMC to pray
each morning – “Praying on Purpose”
God I want to walk in your will today, On Purpose. I
want to do what you want me to do. Lord, I want to treat
everybody that I come in contact with good because that
is what you expect of me and I want to please you. Help
me to walk in love today. Lord, help me to display the
fruits of the Spirit as I live this day. And no matter
what comes against me today Oh Lord, I pray that I remain
stable, steadfast, and focused; that I would not just
do what I want, think, and feel, but I would do what you
want me to do dear God. I pray that you strengthen me,
help me and make me able to do everything you want me
to do. Help me to make right choices today. Help me to
make excellent choices today. Let me be a giver as I live
On Purpose. God, show me people that I can bless today.
I want to bless somebody today. I want to be a blessing
to somebody today. Show me Oh God, somebody that I can
touch and make a difference in their life today as I follow
you, On Purpose! This is my humble prayer and I pray it
in the name of our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
To make disciples of Christ in the multicultural
community by reaching out to all.
To nurture, equip and transform people for Jesus Christ.
To inspire people to be like Jesus Christ.
