Rev. Charles Andrew Sweeting

As a Conference we mourn the death of Rev. Charles Andrew Sweeting, the second president of the Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church, who went to be with the Lord on 11 July, 2021.
Rev. Sweeting, an icon in Bahamian Methodism, gave his life to the service of his God. As a Methodist minister he served congregations throughout our Conference. Additionally he made an exceptional contribution to education when he served as the first Bahamian principal at both St. Paul’s Methodist College, Freeport, Grand Bahama and Queen’s College, Village Road, Nassau.
He began his ministry doing youth work to the congregation of Coke Memorial Methodist Church, Fox Hill. On a missions outreach to Staniard Creek, Andros as a Lay Preacher along with the late Rev. Dr. J. Emmette Weir, Rev. Sweeting received his call to full time ministry.
He then attended Cliff Bible College and Bristol University in the United Kingdom where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and Educational Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. He was stationed as a Probationer at Coke Memorial Methodist Church in Kingston Jamaica and began teaching at Excelsior High School there. He was ordained on 7 May, 1970. During his time in Jamaica, he was also asked to write manuals for Confirmation and Lay Preacher’s Studies for the MCCA. Rev, Sweeting was posted to the Bahamas in September 1970.
Rev. Sweeting has served Bahamian Methodism in myriad of ways - as a minister, teacher, author, president, mentor, counselor and friend, to name a few. As a Methodist Minister he served congregations in Abaco, Grand Bahama, Bimini, the North Eleuthera Region and at Trinity, Ebenezer and Curry Memorial churches in Nassau. As the first Bahamian Principal of St. Paul’s, he moved the school from a primary level school to one encompassing both an early learning centre and a full high school. He also increased the number of Bahamian students and teachers at the institution. As the first Bahamian Principal of Queen’s College (QC), he established the Computer Lab there; the first of its kind. He partnered with Captain Geoffrey Brown to build the auditorium. He saw the first of the Bahamian Rhodes Scholars and many more successes.
In 1995 Rev. Charles Sweeting was elected as the second Bahamian President of the Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church and served from 1995 -2002. He was a servant leader who faithfully served his God, his Church and his country. A very humble man, Rev. Sweeting never sought fame but willingly served wherever he was appointed. He took the time to be interviewed by students for their assignments and saw this as important service just as was his Conference and national responsibilities. He lived a full life and many persons have been the benefactors from his life of service. As a Conference we are thankful to God for the faithful, committed and dedicated service that he has given to Bahamian Methodism. We are indebted to his family for allowing him to serve our Conference for many years even into his retirement.

On behalf of the members of the Executive, members of Staff, all congregations and entities of the Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church, and the Queen’s College Board of Governors, the QC Foundation, the Principal, Administrators, staff, students and parents, we express our sincere sympathy to Rev. Sweeting’s widow, Mrs. Sheran Sweeting, son, Mr. Andrew Sweeting and family, the wider Sweeting family and the Bahamas Conference family on the passing of this faithful servant of God. In 2 Timothy 4:7, we are encouraged by these words, “ I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
We commend Rev. Charles Sweeting into the care of his Lord.
May Rev. Charles Andrew Sweeting Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory!

Rev. L. Carla R. Culmer
President
Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church

Remember the time changes this weekend. Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday -- it becomes 1:00 a.m. again. So we usually set our clocks back one hour on Saturday night so we’ll awake to the correct time on Sunday.

Sunday 1st November is All Saints Day, and in our Zoom Service we will light candles and pray for all who have gone before, especially remembering those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

For the Zoom service information, please send an email to [email protected] or send a message to the page.

From the Pastor's Desk

Read: A STUDY OF THE LETTERS TO THE SEVEN CHURCHES

https://www.tmcbahamas.com/pastorsdesk

The Letters to the Seven Churches are found in the book of Revelation, in chapters 2 and 3. They are messages from Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church, to the churches in seven cities in the province of Asia Minor, part of the Roman Empire at the time.

Chapter 1 of Revelation introduces John, who receives the vision from Jesus Christ via
angels, and is told to write “what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum,Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea” (verse 11).

So we begin this study of the Letters to the Seven Churches with a look at chapter 1 of
the book of Revelation...

Maundy Thursday 2020

When circumstances and concern for the common good keep us from gathering to share the Holy Communion in person we gather to pray... separated in the body, yet One in the Spirit and One in Christ Jesus!

CENTERING: Recognizing the presence of God

God is with us.
We are not alone.
Christ is with us.
The Risen One has met us, blessed and fed us on the road that leads us home.
The community of the Holy Spirit is with us.
We gather with the communion of the saints in light throughout history
and with God’s people around the world.
With brothers and sisters, absent in body but united in Spirit, we pray:
Holy One, Trinity of grace and power, Maker and Mother, Beloved and Lover, Father and Friend: Thanks be to you, O God!
You are ever the Father who gives us bread, not stones.
You are the mother who never forgets we’re her own.
From the beginning of life to the closing of time, you are the One who is with us to the end.
And so, with all who breathe on earth and all who sing in heaven, we praise your name and join Creation’s song: “Now thank we all our God”.

Martin Rinkhart -- German pastor who buried over 4,400 people in one year, including his wife...

Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer

Hymn 182 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . When I survey the wondrous Cross
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_fvFfPqjO4

WORD and RESPONSE

First reading: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have
the light of life.” (John 8:12)
Light the candle.
Jesus Christ, you are the light of the world. You are our Risen Lord in whom light has conquered darkness. And the darkness has never overcome the light.
Sit silently in the light, feeling the power and presence of the Risen Christ.

Second reading: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)
Hold the Bible.
Here in our hands is the story of God’s covenant of steadfast love with God’s people.
We are assured of God’s presence with us at all times and places – even in the midst of fear and difficulty.
Sit quietly and absorb the stories of God’s love and grace that can sustain you wherever you are.

Third reading: Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35)
Take a piece of bread in your hands.
Christ broke bread and fed the multitudes. Christ broke bread and formed a new covenant with
his closest friends and with all who break bread in remembrance of him. Christ was made known to his disciples in the breaking of the bread. Bread reminds us that, just like individual grains of wheat are gathered together to make a single loaf, we who are scattered are one body in Christ.
Break and eat the piece of bread that you are holding.
Remember the times you have received bread in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Remember those who gathered with you. Remember the presence of Christ in that moment. Be assured that Christ is with you in every moment of your life.
Sit silently and allow Christ’s love to surround you.

Fourth reading: On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”
(John 7:37-38)
Hold the glass of water in your hands.
Without water, there can be no life. In creation, the Spirit of God hovered over the water and brought forth light. God brought John to the Jordan River to call us to repentance. We were nourished in the water of the womb. We were baptized by water and the Spirit into God’s family. Water reminds us of the gifts of creation that God has so abundantly given us, and of the love and grace we have all received.
Drink the water slowly. Feel it flow into your body.
Know that God’s love is flowing afresh into your body and soul right now.

PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, light of the world, you speak to us words of life. Call forth in us rivers of living water, and feed our deepest hunger.
In trying times, in times of loneliness or confusion, in times we feel most alone, remind us that we are never alone, for you are with us always.
Hear us now, and pray for us in our weakness with sighs too deep for words, as we lift up:
Those whom we love – those present with us and those from whom we are separated . . .
The prisoners, and those held captive physically, mentally, or spiritually . . .
The sick and the suffering . . .
Those who care for the sick, both medical caregivers and families who wait and watch with them . . .
Those who mourn the loss of loved ones, the loss of freedom, the loss of security, the loss of a livelihood, or the loss of a sense of order and control . . .
Those with more questions than answers, and all who long for your guiding light for their path . . .
The lonely, the isolated, and those who long for a loving touch . . .
Those whose remaining days on this earth are few, and for those walking in the valley of the shadow of death . . .
Those whom we too easily forget, and those whose needs are known only to you . . .
God of compassion, hear our prayers; fill us with your grace, and inspire us to be instruments of mercy and hope, for we pray in Christ’s name.
Amen.

Hymn 176 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Man of Sorrows!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akHMpjwjMaM

GOING FORTH
When we are living, it is in Christ Jesus, and when we’re dying, it is in the Lord.
Both in our living and in our dying, we belong to God.
In these days of anxiety and uncertainty, may we go forth in Christ’s name into all our interactions (digital or otherwise) as a people of hope.
May we be for the world the body of Christ, broken and shared to be a blessing for all.
May God bless us and keep us. May God’s face shine upon us and be gracious to us.
May God look upon us with kindness and give us peace.
Amen.
