UMC CT District

A message from our District Superintendent Reverend Dr. Alpher Sylvester

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call is name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

The words above are a promise made and a promise fulfilled. It too, is a promise we embrace and celebrate as our savior. Our mantra, “In Connecticut, After God, We put people first,” mandates that we pause to celebrate our love for each other in this season but even more so, our love for Jesus. Oh how we do love our LORD Jesus Christ!

Grace and Peace be unto you from God our father and our Lord Jesus Christ!

My family and I are about to celebrate our first Christmas in this district. Our blessing so far, is the wonderful people that God has privileged us to meet and the opportunity to experience your hospitality and love. We celebrate this Advent season and rejoice in a year gone by, so quickly! We are thankful for life and God’s blessings. How good God has been to us as a district, our individual churches and to our families.

As District Superintendent, I call forth the blessing of God upon your hands and all your past efforts. I decree that God will expand your borders and assure that 2018 far exceed your expectations. May you have success on your jobs and in you neighborhoods; may peace and happiness pursue and overtake you and your families, always and in all things!

We celebrate a shared vision of a glorious future for our community. A BLESSED CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018
