WHY I LOVE MWC

Donna BarbieriI have been coming to MWC for almost two years. I have been blessed in many areas regarding the teachings I have received on Sunday mornings as well as the Wednesday night discipleship classes.

Another way I have been blessed is having someone to agree with me in prayer when I have a need. Many times over the past two years I have had someone from the church come alongside me in prayer for something and encourage me. About a month and a half ago, my son was sick. He had a high fever for a number of days. I had brought him to the doctor and she put him on an antibiotic, but the fever persisted. He had no other symptoms, so it was somewhat strange. The Lord impressed upon me that I needed to pray over him and I did, but I felt like I needed someone else to agree with me in prayer believing Matthew 18:19. “If two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Also, scripture says in James 5:14, “If any is sick among you, let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick.” I had called the church and asked if I could meet with someone to pray over my son and they told me about the prayer group that met on a Thursday. I brought him and some ladies from the group prayed over him the prayer of faith and anointed him with oil and a day or so later his fever started to go down and he was completely better within a few days.

It is so important to have a church that believes and teaches the full gospel of Jesus Christ. In Hosea, it says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” I am grateful for the knowledge of the gospel that is taught and for those who come together to pray at MWC. (Donna Barbieri)

 

I don’t like MWC. I love it! It’s a place where the Word of God is upheld for encouragement and challenge. The staff and members of MWC challenge us to truly live as Jesus did and as a result our faith walk grows.

It’s also a great example of what a faith family/church family should be like. Despite its large size, we all know each other and are able to keep up with each others’ lives-offering prayer, encouragement or congratulations as the need arises. The members of this church go out of their way to serve each other. It’s a great place to raise a family. The children’s and parent’s programs (like MOPS) are EXCELLENT; there really is a focus on leading kids in their faith walk with Jesus. (Ann Hannah)

 

I like many things about Monmouth Worship Center. I love the kind pastors, my social friends who believe the same as me, and the loving Sunday school teachers who are able to clarify anything they say so that I can understand. Monmouth Worship Center has changed my life forever. Being in middle school, my life has been tough. But when I pass the friendly smile of the greeters I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. (Rayjan Luly)

For those of you that do not know me, my name is Michele Colletti. I am a wife of 13 years and a mother to two kids ages 8 and 10. In November
of 2013, I started getting my first symptoms. I would set the table and load and unload the dishwasher and I would drop a lotof dishes and glasses because my hands would go numb. I started to develop my second set of symptoms, which were brain fog, lack of focus and poor memory.
By December, I started feeling a lack of energy which was not like me at all. I began to have severe pain in my joints and back. I would sleep 8-10 hours
and wake up and feel like I didn’t sleep at all. The worse symptom was when I lost complete feeling in my arm and one side of my face went paralyzed.
I was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease and babesiosis, which is a form of Malaria from a tick bite I had 9 months before. I did 4 months of intravenous
and oral antibiotics for a year. I was on over 3 grams of medication a day. I became very sick and homebound as the antibiotics were killing everything,
good and bad. I wasn’t able to drive a car for 4 months because the meds made me dizzy and weak. Normal simple everyday tasks became very difficult.
Because of all the medicine I was on, I had stones and sludge in my gall bladder and a surgeon said I had no other option but to remove it. With my immune system being heavily compromised I was scared because I felt that I couldn’t withstand the surgery. I was too weak and so I prayed and cried out daily
to God. I remember a specific day when the Lord spoke to me as I surrendered to Him. God directed my path to a new doctor who, after two months of his
treatment, restored my gall bladder to perfect health. God was able to give me a miracle that at the time I desperately needed. More recent blood work
shows I have Connective Tissue Disorder and Lupus. Praise God I don’t have severe symptoms.
Daily, by God’s grace, I push past pain and fatigue although it is not nearly as bad as it was. Like Pastor Ken preached about Paul and the thorns in his side – well now I have mine. I am able to give God all the glory when the doctors say “Wow, judging by the numbers on your blood work you should be so much sicker.” I have prayed for the Lord to take it all away and I know He will fully restore me. I may never know why this happened to me, butwhat I do know is that I will boast in my weakness because when I was weak the Lord was strong for me and I am thankful that this has happened to me. I am forever grateful to my husband for all his love, prayers and support. It is because of him and my children that I fight daily to get my health back. I am so blessed to be a part of Monmouth Worship Center. I am eternally thankful
for all the prayers that were offered up for me and my family, for the meals that were sent over, for the cards, for the rides to the doctors, for my friends who helped with my kids, the pastors who called and prayed with me, and came to my home to read God’s Holy words and pray with me. I could not have walked through this valley alone without you all. (Michelle Coletti)
