As the community prepares to say good bye to me and my family, and welcome Rev Akhona Gxamza and his family, I am moved by the work God has done through all of us at Calvary Methodist Church.
I am grateful for having been involved in facilitating God’s work within the community of Midrand. There is still more to be done. For instance, the need to express our sense of community better remains to be a challenge for us. The need for us to get to know one another better has never been greater. For some people this is the only thing close to family.
We have just come from the month of celebrating our heritage as a nation. I wish to lace this with the Wesleyan heritage that is embedded in the Classes/Small Group/Fellowship Groups/Home Cell Groups. This model makes caring for one another much easier. At least there will be 11 people who know you and pray for you. It helps us to grow in our faith as there are 11 people who hold us accountable.
I invite you on Monday evenings to meet with other disciples who also seek to grow in their faith. This is for an hour and a half from 18h30 – 20h00.
For many of you, this is your Spiritual Home, children will be baptized here, marriages conducted in this Sanctuary. Our fellowship also assists us in holding our pain together. Sign up at the info desk or email the office. Choose to be known for your belonging to be more meaningful.
