The new year is often a time of resolutions...pledges to do better, but Christ calls us not just to 'do better' but to be better...and better...and better. Our Christian calling is not just to make changes at a superficial level, but to 'be better.' A new covenant with God begins with a commitment of heart and emanates outward to affect our actions and the people around us!
On January 5 Abingdon United Methodist will unite in a single, all-church, (10am) celebration of our relationship with God. It’s a service that was instituted by John Wesley, himself, in which we commit our heart to covenant anew with our God. We will celebrate with a baptismal reaffirmation and we promise to work together to make our actions reflect our new hearts!
