Nazarene News

Lives transformed thanks to generosity

Thanks to the generosity of Nazarenes around the world, the Church of the Nazarene is able to continue spreading the transformational love of Christ in every corner of the world.

Resources are now available for the upcoming Offering of Thanks for Nazarene Missions.

The offering website,, includes promotional materials such as social media graphics, videos, posters, brochures, a PowerPoint graphic, and bulletin inserts to support local churches.

Every time you pray, give to Nazarene Missions, or go on a missions trip, you share Christ’s love and help transform lives like Alexander Gautreaux’s.

Alexander Gautreaux pastors El Amirante Church of the Nazarene in the Dominican Republic. He’s the first to admit his past wasn't Christ honoring.

“I had a very messy life when it came to women,” Gautreaux said. “I had an alcohol addiction and a wild lifestyle.”

When he told one woman from his past that he became a Christian, she responded saying she “had to see that to believe it.”

He traced problems in his early life to his upbringing and his relationship with his father. It brought pain, anxiety, and an emptiness that he was trying to fill with worldly things. It was affecting him personally and in his family life.

“Everything was falling apart,” Gautreaux said. “It was an abyss.”

When he came home from work one day, he overheard a service taking place nearby. As he listened to the message of the pastor, he began to feel a conviction. He and his wife asked the pastor and the people from the church to come to their house.

“My words were, ‘Starting tonight, many things are going to change in this house,’” Gautreaux said. “And they did. Everything changed.”

In addition to changes in his own life, Gautreaux’s family began to change.

“From feeling miserable, depressive, and violent, I started to feel like someone,” Gautreaux said. “Not because of me, but because God made me someone.”

As a pastor now, Gautreaux sees not only how God worked in his life and his home, but in the life of his father as well.

“God brought me to go to the Church of the Nazarene, because in this place, in this community is where He wanted me and where He wants me now,” Gautreaux said.

Dear Church family,

As you probably know, the Loveworks building has sold and we don't yet have a new location. Many heartfelt thanks to all of those who helped in the cleaning out of the old facility. It was a daunting task made easier by all who helped. We are praying that God will lead the Loveworks ministry to a new location where we can continue to serve those in need. In the meantime, we will not accept donations as there is not enough storage to hold them. Continue to keep this ministry in prayer as we look for a new location.

Yours in Christ,

Barb Keeler

This week's lesson for family Sunday is:

Goal Philippians 3:14



Humor... Kind of

Sunday Dinner

A young couple invited their pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.

"Goat," the little boy replied.

"Goat?" replied the Pastor, "Are you sure about that?"

"Yes," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'We might as well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day."

The 10th Commandment

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments. They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted, "Thou shall not take the covers off thy neighbor's wife."

Lord Help me

Dear Heavenly Father,

So far, today, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped or lost my temper. I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, or self centered. I'm really happy about that so far. But in a few minutes I'm going to be getting out of bed and then I'm going to need a lot of help. Thank you! Amen
