Romans 8:38,39 (40 Weeks of Memory Verses – Week 5)

Week 5
“38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height. nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38,39)

Week 4
“8 For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

Week 3
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth: to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”  (Romans 1:16)

Week 2
“12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Week 1
“14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 for god so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  (John 3:14-16)

 

We learn bible verses because….”For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)

UMC History Lesson


OUR STORY
The United Methodist Church’s Story
The Biblical story breathes life into our relationship with God. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible offers us the stories that shape who we are as Christians today. Without our faith story, we lose the thread that ties generations to God and to one another. Understanding our history is essential to our current faith and necessary to a fruitful and vital future.

Keep Holy Land in your prayers

HopeSchoolbanner
The following email came to the UMNC this morning from Hope Secondary School, a high school on the West Bank where Dr. Melissa Tolene Rura worked during the summer of 1998. Our hearts and prayers go out to them right now. Please pray with us.

From Hope School:

We here at Hope School are very concerned about the situation in this land. Although we are safe here and far from the danger, we grieve for the people on both sides who are suffering. On Thursday, July 17, at 6:00 pm local time, we want to host a prayer service at Hope School. We have invited Christian leaders from many denominations to join us in prayer for peace.

This is our prayer:
Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105) Lord, let your Spirit enter into the hearts of those in the Holy Land and be a lamp unto their feet and a light to the path of peace in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

May we ask you to join together with us as we pray for peace in the Holy Land? If you feel you can support us in prayer, please respond to this email so we can include you as a participant in the service.

Following is a note from the Chairman of the Hope School Board:

Hope this email finds you well in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Amid this gloomy situation prevailed in the Holy Land, we need your prayers to bring peace and calmness for the innocent people. We need your prayers for Hope school and all those who live in the Holy Land.

Please find the link below.

God Bless you
Hope School Staff

Another update from Hope School:
ISRAEL-master675
“The situation in the Holy Land is getting worse; violence between Israelis and Palestinians is escalating subsequent the mutual kidnapping and killing of innocent people. This is a new kind of war, “the war of kidnapping” where the victims are always innocent people.
This week, Israel and Hamas escalated their military confrontation, with Israel carrying out extensive air attacks on Gaza, in response to heavy rocket fire and authorizing a major call-up of army reserves preparing for an extended campaign against militants in Gaza.

At Hope school, we have nothing to do but to pray for Almighty God to bring back peace and calmness to the area. We believe that God is protecting our guests, children and premises. On the other hand, our programs and activities went regularly at this point and everybody is doing his work without interruption. We trust : God is with us, protecting us, blessing us and responding to our needs for “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13 ”

Jobs Hatchery – Smith Center

AS a part of our “works program” UMNC partners several organizations to provide community service opportunities and training. Newly added in the Smith Center in uptown is the Jobs Hatchery.

Jobs Hatchery is about inspiring people so that they connect their “sweet spot” (what they really like to do, are good at, and have good chance of putting food on the table for their families) with job and business start-up opportunities. Our mission is to turn around lives by mentoring self-sufficiency.

On an individual level, benefits to clients combine increased self-esteem with a better match to passion plus skills plus financial stability. At a community level, Jobs Hatchery is about economic development, gender equality, diversity, and community enhancement. On a spiritual level, our program is a spillway to individual freedom to fulfill God’s purpose and to pass along this freedom to the next generation and others.

Our prayers are with this new ministry at the Smith center and their director Nita Black.

She encourages others to be prayer worriors for the cause:
“Our Program includes the formation of a spiritual network of contacts through an online prayer team. When you sign up for the Jobs Hatchery Online Prayer Blast, you agree to read the same scripture during the week and share your thoughts on our blog. The scripture passage will be posted and emailed to you each week. You will receive weekly email updates. You will also have the option to sign up for the team’s texting group to receive short text messages weekly.

As a prayer team member, you can receive individual mentoring which is online and offline.

Online Prayer Team

Everyone on the team agrees to set a cell phone reminder for 10:02AM every day.
At 10:02AM daily the team will ask God for
(1) workers for Christ,
(2) racial peace in our community,
(3) our own spiritual freedom, and
(4) optimum job opportunities so that people can put food on the table.

For more information please complete the form on this page, email connect@jobshatchery.org , or call Nita Black at (901)413-1315.”

We also encourage folks to Pray with us at the UMNC and to visit our Prayer page. As read the bible in a year with St. Luke’s UMC and are vigilant in prayer for Christ Ministry in the City of Memphis.
