Listening Posts

Informational Listening Posts at Mentor UMC for the UMC’s Special General Conference in Feb. 2019
In advance of the United Methodist Church’s Special General Conference to discuss issues of Human Sexuality and the church on February 23-26, 2019, the pastors of Mentor UMC with the backing of church leadership will present three informational listening posts. The posts are to help any interested persons understand the issues under discussion, the proposed plans under consideration and the possible results of the Conference for the church worldwide, nationwide and on a local level.
On Sunday, January 13 from 2-3:30 PM, Monday, February 11 from 7-8:30 PM, and Wednesday, February 20 from 7-8:30 PM, we will hold a 90-minute session in the Chapel. We will spend 30 minutes describing the two basic positions of United Methodists on the issue of human sexuality and the Biblical issues at play and have 15 minutes of questions regarding the information we have shared and responses. Then we will spend 30 minutes describing the three plans proposed to the Special General Conference and the possible results from the Conference for the church, followed by another 15-minute session of informative questions-and-answers.
To attend these listening posts, you will need to sign-up at the Information Hub or online via Sign-Up Genius.

Each session will be limited to 60 participants. We encourage you to sign-up for one of these events so that you can be prepared and informed on this important time in the UMC.

The Path 2019


The PATH 2019
Fire Works
Don’t hesitate to be enthusiastic.
Be on fire for the Lord. (Romans 12:11)
March 23 & 24, 2019
Hilton Garden Inn Twinsburg

For the past 19 years the Mentor United Methodist Church has gathered women of all denominations for a weekend of fellowship. The Path is open to all women. Come with friends, family or come on your own. Everyone is welcome.

When we asked a group of women what they appreciated most about the event they said:
• Time to relax, reflect, and draw closer to God.
• Being physically away from home but not too far.
• The flexibility and easy flow throughout the weekend.
• The great blend of women on many different paths.

Peggy Streiff
Peggy is a retired United Methodist Pastor and District Superintendent of the East Ohio Conference.  She served as Co-Lead Pastor at Mentor UMC from 1998-2005.  While there, she initiated the Women’s Retreat, now in its 20th year, which became known as the PATH, under the direction of Mentor United Methodist Women. As a church leader, her greatest love is to encourage people of all ages to grow in their faith.  She looks forward to the opportunity to be with and to challenge women on The PATH.

Plan now to join us as Rev. Dr. Peggy Streiff guides and inspires us, using the imagery of fire, to reignite our faith and live in the glow of the Holy Spirit.

Monthly Prayer Focus

February Prayer Focus
February Prayer Focus - Nancy Landerholm
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4

The prayer challenge for February is to give our Father joy in 2019 and beyond.  His joy is fulfilled when his children walk in truth.  John 17:17 says that the word of God is truth. Are you walking in the truth or are you walking according to what the culture says is true, or perhaps, what your feelings and emotions dictate is true?  2 Timothy 2:15 says to do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.  Read the Bible everyday and pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth (John 16:13) and then walk in the truth!  Use the following Psalm as a prayer each day:
“Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long.” Psalm 25:4&5
