Pentecost Sunday (May 24): Come Holy Spirit, Fill the Hearts of the Faithful!

Pentecost was a feast day for the Jewish people.  On this day, many Jews were known to have made a special pilgrimage to the temple in Jerusalem.  At first, the feast was celebrated as a day of thanksgiving for the harvest and subsequently it also became a commemoration of the Ten Commandments that were given by God to Moses.  Pentecost was celebrated fifty days after the Passover.

Jesus’ return to his Father makes it possible for God to come to us in a way more active and more powerful than before, through the Holy Spirit. Jesus lives, loves and continues his mission through the Catholic Church by the power of the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit which raised Jesus from the dead, is at work in the Church and bringing all of us to new life.  From the Church, through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ now sends us into the world to continue His redemptive mission.

All are welcome to join us for worship this Pentecost Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Hope to see you there!                                                                      – Rev. Ted Bane, Pastor

News of the Church: A Statement Concerning our Missions Work in Mexico

From the Communications Ministry Team  of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church (cmt@cumberland.org) (https://t.e2ma.net/message/ywxff/ycqkac)

We have learned some sad news about our work in Mexico. Cumberland Presbyterians in Mexico report that a small group of people living in Juarez, Mexico have appropriated the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Mexico’s legal identity without authorization. These persons were part of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Northern Mexico and they secretly formed a new legal structure, effectively assuming the identity of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mexico. They seized the Cumberland Presbyterian Church’s bank account in Mexico, all property of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mexico, ordered our missionaries to leave Mexico, and insist that they must approve all mission work in Mexico. This independent group then announced to people in Mexico and to some in the U.S. that they were the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mexico.
This group was not sanctioned under any judicatory of the Cumberland Presbyterian church or affiliated with the Missions Ministry Team, which is the mission agency of the General Assembly. The persons who initiated this action comprise a small family cluster with only a few followers. They have named their own pastors and by all appearances believe they can gain support from Cumberland Presbyterians in the U.S.
The Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches is the only Cumberland Presbyterian entity in Mexico that our denomination recognizes officially. It consists of provisional Cumberland Presbyterian churches, six ordained Cumberland Presbyterian pastors and one NCD fellowship, based in Mexico City. There are more than 200 faithful Cumberland Presbyterians who are part of the Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches. The Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches has lost its legal identity and assets, but they have not lost their ecclesiastical identity or our support. The  Cumberland Presbyterian pastors, churches, and participants in the Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches, which functions much like a presbytery, is under the judicatory care and oversight of the General Assembly’s mission agency; the pastors and churches are attached to Red River Presbytery.
We wish to state clearly that any support, assistance, or acknowledgement of this independent splinter group in Juarez, Mexico would be in violation of General Assembly directives, and would damage the legitimate Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mexico.
We are aware that this independent family group is reaching out to Cumberland Presbyterians in the U.S., claiming the authority of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mexico. The Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Mexico is represented by the Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches. Any support, assistance, work groups, etc., wishing to help with our work in Mexico needs to carefully coordinate their efforts through the MMT, which is working with the Mexico Cumberland Presbyterian Council of Churches. This painful event gives us experience as a global church standing together as one, united in our support of Cumberland Presbyterians in new mission fields who are experiencing hardships at the hands of disruptive attacks on their ministry.

National Day Of Prayer – Thursday, May 7

The annual observance of the National Day of Prayer is this Thursday, May 7, 2015, where you and I join with government leaders and people in communities all around the country to lift our needs and concerns for America before the Lord.

Now more than ever before, it is imperative that we as God’s people remain on our knees for our nation and fellow citizens. The critical challenges facing the United States and the culture at large call for faithful, persevering intercession – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.

OPPORTUNITY FOR MINISTRY: Nepal Earthquake Relief

From the Cumberland Presbyterian Church Communications Ministry Team http://ministrycouncil.cumberland.org:

The devastation of the earthquake in Nepal has caught the world’s attention. News outlets are sharing the sad stories of destruction and death. In past years the Cumberland Presbyterian Church had a missionary that worked in Nepal, she moved back to her home in Hong Kong months ago and no longer resides in Nepal. She does have friends and connections in Nepal as a result of her years of ministry in that country. Leaders in Hong Kong Presbytery are requesting prayer for those in Nepal. Churches there are collecting donations that can be used to help. The missionary that once served in Nepal is helping Cumberland Presbyterians in Hong Kong know how best to use those donations.

If you would like to give to help with the needs in Nepal, the Missions Ministry Team is receiving donations. Please send your donations to the church, marked (memo) for Nepal Relief, or mail to the denominational office at the following address:

Cumberland Presbyterian Church | 8207 Traditional Place | Cordova, TN 38016

The Ministry Council will explore with Hong Kong Presbytery what their plans are as to the funds they are raising and see if we can partner with them. We will also look to one of our long time partners, Church World Services, and explore partnering with them to meet needs in Nepal. We will report on the use of those funds once we send them.
