    This past Sunday, January 27, 2013, CUMC celebrated Reunion Sunday. We spent weeks preparing for this day of Celebrating our past, Rejoicing in our present, and Anticipating our future. Our purpose for this day was to highlight the mission and ministry of God in this church community for its 147 year history. AND, we wanted to show that we are a church that is alive!
  
     In a prophecy given to Ezekiel, in the Old Testament, God says that He will reunite His people, He will bring them back from the places that they have been scattered. They will be one nation, under on King, with one purpose (37:21-23). That purpose is stated very clearly in verse 23: “They will once again be my people, and I will be their God.”
 
    You will be my people. I will be your God.   
   
    That is what God promises in bringing us back to Himself, in bringing us together as the Church. And this is the reason that the Church exists in the first place. The Church exists for the sole purpose of reaching people, of reaching those people who have turned away from God. God longs for reunion with His people. He longs to be the God of all, of each and every one of the 7+ people alive today.
   
    On Sunday, we celebrated all the things that have gone on in and through CUMC throughout its history. But we also celebrated the lives that have been changed for God. We exist to change lives, to show people who this God is who longs for them. We invited back everyone who had ever been a part of this church because God longs to be reunited with them. We proceed in our ministries now because God longs to be reunited with His people.
   
    I don’t know what the future will hold for this church. We are smaller than we have been in the past. We are also bigger than we have been at other times. We’ve done many things in our past. We are doing many things now as a church. And we have plans for doing many things in the future. But all these “things” that we do are for the sole purpose of being the people of God and reuniting people with their God.
   
    That’s who we are as the people of Coopersville United Methodist Church. We’re flawed- yes. We’re certainly not a huge church. But we have a passion for reuniting people with God. I encourage you to come, check us out, and see what it means to be the people of God.

People should be celebrating what happens in their lives. Their past, present, and future encompass their lives. I admire your church for celebrating all aspects of human lives. It is a firm belief on God that makes all these possible. I hold on to my faith especially during times when I have no one to turn to. To chronicle my faith, I wrote an essay on my experiences in life. I have not shared it with anyone yet as it is a very personal experience. Hopefully, I will soon at the right time.
