1 Corinthians 15:55-57 - ““Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

PRAIRIE RIVERS NOTES

 

 

  • Bishop Addresses Prairie Rivers District Men at Palmer, Nebraska

     

    On March 24, 2013, seventy Prairie Rivers men from nineteen churches met in Palmer, Nebraska for their annual banquet and meeting. 

     

    Bishop Scott Jones was the keynote speaker. Jones’ message focused on participating in the Wesleyan Way by inviting non-believers and inactives to “Come and See”. He gave some factors behind people’s lack of commitment to the church and described the Wesleyan Way: creation, sin, repentance, justification, and sanctification. He showed a testimony from his new study and concluded with practical steps for United Methodist Men to build the Kingdom.

     

    Rev Martin Leeper, Local President Ted Rutten and several other Palmer men hosted the meeting. The Palmer UMC Praise Team sang and led singing. District President, Ed Dexter of Central City, led the business meeting during which officers were elected: Dexter-President, Ed Felske of Grand Island-Vice President, Barry Marsh of Central City-Treasurer, Doug Kallesen of Columbus-Secretary/Communicator, and Don Russell of Sutton-Scouting/Youth Coordinator.

     

    An offering of $646.00 was collected (including Palmer’s donation of meal proceeds) for division between the evening’s selected mission causes of Epworth Village in York and Imagine No Malaria in Africa. Rev. Lance Clay, District Superintendent, gave a benediction and challenged the men to support their neighboring men’s groups.
