Life is an adventure to experience, not a burden to bear.
Easter People Living in a Good Friday World!
Our Goal is to not just believe in Jesus, but to believe like Jesus,
so we will do what Jesus did for the reasons Jesus did them.
Temple was founded on the Wesleyan belief that Easter is changing everything. We do not look at people or problems and only see what they are (or are not), we see what they can become. We judge our circumstances in light of Jesus’ love displayed on the Cross, never Jesus’ love by our circumstances. This means we choose to live less out of habit and more out of intent. The more consistently we walk with Jesus, the more his life becomes our life.
United Methodist Temple has a rich history of Christian witness in the Beckley community for over 150 years. Through times of war and peace, feast and famine, Temple has been rooted in Christ, a open door for the weary and a leading advocate for those without a voice. Today our message is carried worldwide, touching more lives and inspiring a new generation of spiritual leaders. We invite you to join the team and experience the difference for yourself!
In a world torn apart by anger, greed and conflict, we have the privilege of being living signs of love, faith and reconciliation that can bridge all divisions and heal all wounds.
Open my eyes, O God, and awaken my soul that I may see with clarity the right path, that I may feel with renewed tenderness the sharp pain of this world, I may hear the loneliness in unspoken words, the anxiety of a social media driven generation. I pray for those who do not yet know the wonder of an Easter dawn or feel the freedom in this trusted fellowship. On this new year’s day I ask you to unleash Your Spirit upon us, stir our calling to flame again and unite us in an unbreakable bond. We will not hide behind these walls, but strive to make an impact in this world in light of the next. Amen
