From The Desk Of Pastor Lisa Allen-McLaurin
Let’s Get It Started Again!!!
Another Annual Conference is in the books, and I’m excited to be returning to West Mitchell Street CME Church for Conference Year 2017-2018! The past three years have been enlightening, formational, and spirit-filled as we have grown together in G-d. And, this year promises to be our best ever as we seek to stretch and branch out in ministry to our surrounding communities.
This year, we have just celebrated another Black Tie Gala, honoring past, present and future leaders for their ministry, service, and commitment to G-d and West Mitchell. We are beginning our Lay Ministry Small Groups which will meet each month to bring us closer together as sister and brothers in Christ, and holding us accountable for each other.
This Fall, we are planning to add an Intergenerational Service, with the students in the Atlanta University Center serving as worship planners and leaders. This initiative, which we had hoped to start last year, has now been mandated by Bishop Carter, at the Annual Conference. If our denomination is going to thrive, we MUST reach our young people! We are praying that this new ministry will draw students from all the schools in the AUC, as well as our own youth and young adults. We want to continue our outreach ministry to Central Outreach and Advocacy Center, and partner with neighborhood schools and churches to help meet the needs of our community members.
Last, but not least, we plan to take one Sunday per month and have “Worship on the Road,” where we worship with community partners and outreach centers, following Jesus’ commandment to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 19-20
Let’s make this year an AWESOME one, and I look forward to seeing all of you! Let’s make it happen!
