Jackson Central holds revival


Three pastors combined to inspire members and guest of Jackson Central United Methodist Church during its annual fall revival.

The services were held Oct. 16-18.

The Rev. Leon Collier of Canton asked the congregation, "Where are you located on the journey?"  He then chronicled the various stops the children of Israel made along the way to the Promise Land.  He related these stops with the journey Christians make today on our journey.

The next night, the Rev. Joe May of Anderson UMC challenged the congregation not to get "a bad case of the can't help it."  He reminded them that the essence of the message of the Gospel is that we can't do it by ourselves. "We need God's help through a relationship with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit," he said.

Wrapping it up, Meridian District Superintendent the Rev. Timothy Thompson said, "To be a disciple means being willing to be sent out.  Being a disciple means understanding that there is a cost to be paid and a task to be done.”
