School Of Congregational Development

Several of the staff from Nestor UMC joined hundreds of other UMC pastors, musicians, lay persons and UMC leaders for the annual School of Congregational Development Conference, held here in San Diego this year. 
We all learned so many new things, we went with a desire to learn and hope to help make disciples for Christ, and to learn new ways to help our church, from the inside out. 
We came away with a renewed spirit, so much information, ideas, and connections that we are still trying to work through all we learned. 
Check the Friends of Nestor UMC facebook page to see how our weekend went. 
We can't wait to share all our education with you.

Feel free to stop by and spread the word…



I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you,
exalted for you, or brought low for you;
let me be full, let me be empty,
let me have all things, let me have nothing:
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things
to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours. So be it.
And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

John Wesley

Be Good…

Today we celebrate communion and we come and eat from the “Bread of Life.” As we pray that we may be for the world the body and blood of Christ, redeemed by His blood, we begin a series of messages based on the book of James where we learn to be doers of the words and not hearers only.

Filipino Sunday,

It is a great blessing to celebrate Filipino Sunday, celebrating the Filipino Heritage and thanking God for such a vibrant and committed community of brothers and sister in our congregation. The occasion becomes more special as we receive Rev. Russ Locke who will share the message with us today.

Holy communion will be celebrated and after worship everybody is invited to the fellowship hall for a reception.

Become Known

Who is John the Baptist? What are the rumors about Jesus, John, and their ministries? How did King Herod respond to the word on the street? How are you and your congregation known in your city, community, and regional area? What impact are you making as followers of Jesus Christ? Somethings to reflect on and take into account! GBOD

Celebrating Summer Blessings

Today we celebrate summer blessings: vacation, family, sun and beach... We thank God because His blessings are new every day. His love endures forever.

We pray for the children happily going back to school, and we pray as well for teachers and school staff. We pray that this new year may be a year of growth in wisdom and stature before God and the people.

Paragraph for Sunday

Today’s scripture in Mark chapter 6 focuses on Jesus sending the disciples forth in “twos” to spread the Good News of the Gospel. We recognize and celebrate our church’s mission work in the local and global community. Pray for your church!

Leadership Changes Everything.

The Lord knows the hearts of God’s people. Ministry requires many different kinds of leasership, and God prepares many different kinds of people to lead. Leaders are bohe lay and clergy. They are young and old. Yhey consist of thse formally educated and skilled and unskilled workers. They are male and female, they are lifelong church goers and persons whom God has raised up suddenly to respond to a particular need. They are experienced and inexperienced. Let us pray that God will show us the ones God has chosen. Let us trust in God’s provision for God’s church.


May 6 2018

Easter isn’t just a single day in the Christian Year. It’s a season of 50 days, starting with celebration of the resurrection of Jesus celebrated on Easter, and concluding with the celebration of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. As we are still celebrating Easter we prepare our hearts for the promise of the Holy Spirit.

New Connections

Who are we refusing to touch, see, embrace, love, accept welcome? Who is the world rejecting that we can, in the power of the Spirit, reach towards? We too have to be willing to join the Spirit in it’s work, going where the Spirit leads us and listeneing deeply with not our own ears, but Christ’s. Then we will find the next person who will listen, receive and experience the Gospel.
