Welcome!

Welcome to the Upper Adams United Methodist Charge website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our churches are thriving communities of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Centenary, Idaville and Mt Tabor each have a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for a service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

 


We continue to work on plans for Palm Sunday and Holy Week.

We will have several video broadcasts.

Currently we are streaming using facebook. Our post is on the Upper Adam Group. You have to accept being a member of the group to watch any video posting on the site. Our new YOUTUBE Channel will be ready soon!

Remember, It's the Little Things That Will Be Remembered Most

Daily Devotion 4-2-20

Proverbs 12:25 ---An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.

Little Things in life mean the most. No matter how wonderful your life is, what your hopes and dreams might be, or what's happening in your career and other aspects of your life, it's the little things that matter most.

It can be a call from your children. A hug around the neck from your spouse or a close friend. A warm tongue on your face from your pet. A thank-you from a close friend. A card from a Christian brother or sister.

When I take my prayer walks in the morning during the spring. You notice the little things that God created. The birds feeding their babies, Ants carry a load three times his size on his back as he marched back to his friends. The spider finding the right tree branch to build his web. The frog leaping from rock to rock in the stream looking for a new hiding place. Little things in God world happens all around us if we are paying attention. Little things in our live happen all around us, if we take the time to notice.

If we close our eyes and reflect on our fondest memories. They weren't our most exciting vacations or my greater achievements. Although those external things are important to me, the memories that really stand out are those that touched my heart. During this time of American in crisis we will remember those that touch our hearts with acts of kindness. Those that took the time to comfort us. That took the time to show love and compassion.

It's tempting to spend your life hoping it's going to get better later. Most of us look forward to promotions, special events, vacations, and the highlights. And certainly these are wonderful things to anticipate. Yet, if we focus too much on these somewhat rare instances, we can miss out on the ordinary, yet incredibly special, events that happen on a regular basis ---- the beautiful smiles and laughter of children, the witnessing of simple acts of kindness, sharing a beautiful sunrise or sunset with someone you love, or witnessing the changing colors of the trees in the fall.

These are the things life and memories are made of. If you remind yourself to look for and appreciate the little things, your power of observation will be heightened. You'll begin to see "ordinary" experiences in a far more extraordinary manner. If you take a few moments to reflect on what truly matters in your life. I think you'll agree ---in the end, it's the little things that matter most.

As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. (Galatians 6:10)

Prayer: Thank you, God, for sustaining us through this time of trial. Help us to continue to put on God's armor to fight against the devil's schemes. Make us aware of the hurts and need of those around us, and prompt us to help. In Jesus' name. AMEN

 


How can God use me to light the world?
