Fwd: A Word To The Churches

Dear colleagues in ministry!

Last week, in a (virtual) meeting of the LMC Conference Executive Council (CEC), we discussed the challenging dynamics pastors are facing around questions about how and when to resume gathered worship services. In the course of our conversation, we agreed that there are more pressing questions, like "What is the Lord teaching us in this experience?" and "What is the Lord saying to us about how to be the church going forward?"

The CEC commissioned a smaller group to prayerfully discern what word the Lord has for our fellowship of congregations. Yesterday, we reached a shared sense of discernment and asked Bishop Stephen Weaver, Assistant Moderator, to share a word with you in the attached video link: A Word To Church 

Please prayerfully consider this as a word from the Lord for the LMC family of churches. I urge you to find ways to share this with your congregation so we can all learn together the new things God is inviting us to experience.  The circumstance surrounding COVID-19, as painful as they are, may be the best opportunity this generation will have to re-think what it means to be Kingdom people serving our Lord Jesus Christ in His mission to redeem and renew all things.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5.13-16

Finally, Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.  (Jude 21)

In His Grace,


L. Keith Weaver

Dear LMC: A Fellowship of Anabaptist Churches,

Over the last several months, we've been working with EMM workers in three different countries to help tell their stories through video. We've brought these stories together in a video series called "Stories of crossing cultures, engaging the world, and making disciples of Jesus."

This is the core of who we are at EMM, and we want your church to be some of the first people to see these videos. Go to EMM.ORG/STORYVIDEOS to access these stories from the Czech Republic, Germany, and Southeast Asia. We encourage you to use them in your Sunday web-streamed services, digital bulletins, or however you want to share these encouraging videos with your church.

Then, starting on Monday, May 18, followed by May 25 and June 1, we'll be premiering each of these videos on Facebook at 8 p.m. ET. If you don't already follow us on Facebook, we encourage you to do so and share these premieres with your friends. 

In Christ's peace, 
Andrew Mashas
Church Relations and Development Coordinator
