Joan and I were blessed today to be a part of multiple celebrations today at the Carol City Ebenezer Church of the Nazarene.
As we arrived at the church, balloons and decorations announced this day as the 20th anniversary of the local pastoral ministry of Rev. Jorge Díaz. There were congratulations aplenty as the congregation loved on their pastor and family. On behalf of the Southern Florida District I was present to congratulate Pastor Díaz and present him with a certificate commemorating the occasion. An added blessing of this celebration was to have Dr. Byron Schortinghouse present at the end of the service to also offer congratulations. Dr. Schortinghouse had pastored the Carol City church some 40 years ago, and then was also the district superintendent of the Southern Florida District 20 years ago and officially installed Rev. Díaz in 1995. God has blessed the ministry of the Díaz family and the church is strong and growing.
During the service, Pastor Díaz presented certificates to several who had just been baptized and then received new members.
Today was also the first Masters Plan Conference of the year for the local church. Following my message from 1 Corinthians 15:58, Pastor Díaz explained the Masters Plan strategy of discipleship and invited the congregation to commit themselves to “Hold fast, be constant and grow in the work of the Lord.” Each person present was presented with a 2015 Masters Plan Calendar to sign, to give evidence of their commitment.
Following the extraordinary worship service, a meal was shared under the district tent, and persons signed up to participate in the Masters Plan Encounter and training. God shined us with sunshine and a cool breeze as the people of God celebrated so many blessings today at Carol City Church of the Nazarene!
