Interpreter magazine features Cal-Nevada's First UMC of Hayward

February 28, 2008

Read about First United Methodist Church in Hayward, a part of the California-Nevada Conference, in the March-April 2008 issue of Interpreter, the official ministry magazine for the people of The United Methodist Church. The “It Worked for Us” department features the Homeless/Caring Court Program that the church hosts twice a year. You may read the story on line here.


This issue of Interpreter includes several features on men’s ministry, including models of successful ministries that provide men with ways to become part of churches. It includes suggestions of ways to make the setting comfortable for men and of resources.


Read, too, about the issues delegates will consider when the 2008 General Conference of The United Methodist Church convenes in Fort Worth in April. Learn how an Easter vigil can be a meaningful experience and about a ministry that transforms weapons into works of art. You can also read about the One Great Hour of Sharing, Native American Ministries Sunday and the upcoming meeting of the United Methodist Judicial Council. As always, enjoy reading “IdeaMart” as well as the new “Leadership Link” and “Lighter Fare” pages.


Interpreter serves lay leaders – those who serve by role as well as position – and clergy with inspiration and information to connect leaders and potential leaders across the denomination with God, with each other and with ideas and resources.
