This Week’s Special Offering: New Churches

Two centuries ago, a man on the east coast had finally had more of Methodist preachers than he could stand. They had converted his wife and daughter, and they were working on him. He was tired of it, so he packed up his family and headed west. After a year on the road, and across prairies after the roads ended, a young man rode up to their campfire and introduced himself as a Methodist Circuit Rider. The man’s anger was something to see. “I left the east to get away from you Methodists, and you’re here also. Isn’t there anywhere we can go to escape?”

The Circuit Rider laughed. “I’m sorry my friend, but even if you go to heaven or hell, there would be a Methodist preacher there first!”

The Southwest Texas Conference continues a long history of going to where the people are through new churches.
