May 14 – Intentional Faith Development with Diane Hatfield

My name is Diane Hatfield and I moved to The Villages from Kansas five years ago.  I am currently on the Women’s Ministry Board, the Re—Vision Team,  a MOAMI volunteer, and am on an usher team.

Scripture:  …“rejoice with those who rejoice,” and “weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15)

My parents raised me in the Methodist Church and they were outstanding examples for me through their devotion to our church.  In spite of their good example, I was simply going through the motions of being a Christian.  While I always attended church throughout my life and took on many responsibilities in the church, I must admit that my personal relationship with Jesus was extremely weak.   In my video, I will tell you how that changed, and why I feel intentional faith development is so important in the life of Lake Deaton UMC.

Reflection questions:

  1.  What relationships or activities in church have helped to grow your faith?
  2.  How can you help someone else to grow their faith?
