Devotion Topic for week of March 30th:
A Fitting Title
(Please read full devotion on Pastor's Corner)

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update March 31st:

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus, we will continue to cancel all church activities and hold our Sunday worship and devotions online. As of now we plan to follow this schedule through the end of April to adhere to our Presidents most recent recommendation. We tremendously miss having our church family come together physically to worship our Heavenly Father together, but we know it is so important to promote social distancing to protect everyone. 

Please continue to access our Facebook page and Youtube channel through our website at www.fumcdunnellon.org.

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

A Word from Our Pastor

Pastor Eddie Fulford and his wife
 

I am blessed to have such a beautiful wife and seven children. My family and I have greatly enjoyed the Dunnellon area and are excited to be a part of such dynamic church growth.
I have been ordained 
since 1989 and this is my fourth appointment ministering to a local congregation. I have served the church on the District level in two areas and the Annual Conference on the Board of Church and Society. 
I can't imagine pastoring anywhere else at this time of my life. I have no doubt that God has blessed me greatly by serving this wonderful congregation."

 
 
 
Pastor's Weekly Devotion
Week of March 30, 2020
Our devotion this week comes from Wednesday, April 1st from the “Upper Room.”
The Bible verse is from the Old Testament book, Judges 6:12. The angel of the Lord is calling a gentleman by the name of Gideon to stand up and fight the evil of the day. The Bible verse says, 'the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon," he said, "the Lord is with you mighty warrior." I think Gideon's response was, "April fools!" If you read the whole chapter you find out that Gideon is hiding from the enemy while he tries to do his daily work and just does not believe in himself. It seems ironic that the angel sees something in him that obviously he does not see it himself. Does any of that sound familiar :-) when I wake up in the morning I wish someone would say to me about this coronavirus, April fools :-). The reality is though, it's not going away immediately. I have heard a number of folks recently say that we need to pray not just for healing but that beautiful verse of repentance that comes to us time and time again in the Holy Scriptures.
Three questions to raise today. Number one, where this week, is God expecting me to be a mighty warrior?  Number two, if I look in the mirror do I see Jesus?  Do you remember that show made a number of years ago from Disney,  "the Lion King?" The young lion is told by the wise Rafiki to look into the water to see his father who has died. As the story unfolds he only sees his reflection in the river. Rafiki the Wise says, "your father lives in you." Jesus lives in you friends. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4) Number three, where are you unqualified to be strong in the Lord? I want you to consider praying about this this week. Maybe God has a task for you to do and you feel unqualified. I want you to pray that He would somehow give you an image in your mind symbolizing where you feel unqualified. I would then ask that you see Jesus upon the cross and take that image to Him and give it to Him and praise Him for healing and delivering and blessing you through the experience of that image.
Blessings this week as we make it through another day trying to find sanity in our insane circumstances. Let's never forget that the good Lord is still on the throne!
Blessings
