PHILIPSBURG–The Methodist Church in collaboration with the Men’s Work Commission is observing its annual Men’s Week, February 19-26.
It is an exciting time not only for the men of the church, but for the Methodist community in general as the Methodist Church of St. Marten/St. Martin celebrates 200 years of Methodism.
The week begins with an opening service to be held at Tabernacle Methodist Church in French Quarter on Sunday, February 19, at 5:30pm. The preacher for this service will be Rev. Denis Baptiste. On Monday there will be a lecture given by well-known physician on the island and lecturer at American Caribbean School of Medicine Dr. Albert van der Waag, at the Philipsburg Methodist Church beginning at 7:30pm.
There will be a series of revival services at the Philipsburg Methodist Church from Wednesday through Friday, beginning at 7:30 nightly. The preacher at these services will be Pastor Robert Wright from the British Virgin Islands (BVI).
On Saturday, February 25, there is a retreat for all men at Ebenezer Methodist Church in Marigot from 8:30am to 2:30pm. The facilitator will be Rev. Joseph R. Lloyd from Anguilla.
On Sunday, February 26, all men are free to worship at their respective churches and the pulpits in the various churches will be manned by selected men of the communities on the French and Dutch sides of the island. In the afternoon, the Circuits rally will be held at the Philipsburg Chapel beginning at 5:30pm and the preacher will be Pastor Robert Wright.
Outside of Men’s Week, but organised by the Methodist Men Work Commission, will be the annual Senior Citizens Service which will take place this year at the Philipsburg Methodist Church on Sunday, March 5, beginning at 4:30pm.
