The Shepherd’s Vigil 9/19/2018

A Weekly Message from Rev. Rafe Vigil, Senior Pastor

Yesterday I spent the day at a Board of Trustees meeting for the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home. We met at the Madison campus in North Florida (almost Georgia) and were blessed to tour the newest two buildings. Recently the Children’s Home opened a chapel and a support services building to expand the work at the Ranch.
I say the Ranch because this campus uses equestrian therapy to help young people progress to healthy lives and relationships. The Ranch is mostly for teens and is in a beautiful setting. The staff there is doing a great job guiding young people and working with families.
Tomorrow I will be at the main campus of the Children’s Home in Enterprise Florida (central Florida, near Sanford). We will be dedicating a new school building for the Early Learning Center. This is a ministry that reaches the local community around that campus by offering a quality preschool. This school touches hundreds of families and fills a great need in the area.
We can be very proud of the work of our Florida United Methodist Children’s Home. We can be very proud that God has called us to a great partnership with this ministry. (Yes it is time to start talking Golf Tournament again as we continue to support this ministry.) See you Sunday,

Pastor Rafe
