From Our Windows…

Duluth, Georgia in the greater Atlanta Area. Eight people from O’Fallon First UMC among seven thousand others at the Gwinnett Conference Center. Most attendees young and mid-adults. Praise and worship music that nearly rocked us out of our comfort level! That was the Orange Conference 2015- which you will hear more about from us and other leaders in our church.

What touched our hearts deeply was the desire for people to get filled up on God and to learn of relevant and effective ways of linking people to the ancient ways of faith in an ever-changing culture. That requires some updates in our style in sharing this life-changing faith we claim.

In the second book of Timothy we read, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the Word of Truth. (II Timothy 2:15 NIV)

We ask all in our faith community here at O’Fallon First to pray.

Pray for what?
…That we will be willing to hear from God to upgrade our outreach
to members, outsiders, families, individuals

…That as we grow older, we will all grow more mature in faith
and in love with God and others

…That we will act like we understand that everyone was made in the image of God

Older faith dogs who are learning new tricks,
