Letter from the Northwest District

To Pastors and Methodist Men of the Northwestern District,

On Saturday January 23, 2010 the first meeting of 2010 was held at St. Matthew UMC. From the 63 churches in our District 3 churches were represented. 1st Korean of Wheeling. Resurrection, and St. Matthew.

We viewed the Bishop's words from the Gathering in Nashville TN, "God to Man". Everyone enjoyed the powerful words the Bishop spoke to the men. We then said a prayer for our lost Brothers in Christ Sam Dixon and Clifton Rabb. We blessed to Lord for all the work they have done and the Spiritual encouragement they gave us.

Our goodwill offering is going to the EMCOR Haitian relief fund. The men asked me to send out e-mails to the NWD churches to see if any of the men groups or methodist men that wanted to donate to the fund with the District men. St. Matthews pledged, Resurrection pledged, and First Korean pledged.

We will send out one check from the NWDUMM on Monday February 8, 2010. If you would like to contribute with the men from the District please make and send your check to;
