"It is a great blessing to be able to enjoy the worship services in our own language." - Pastor Jacob
Message from Pastor
Dear Hindi Urdu United Methodist Mission Congregation’s Members and Friends,
Greetings to you all in the most wonderful and precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I would like to give thanks to you all for the faithful support you all have been providing to the Hindi Urdu UM Mission Congregation in many and different ways. It is really a great honor and privilege for me to serve this Congregation as an Ordained Minister.
On the basis of my own experience, I can say that the Hindi Urdu UM Mission Congregation has been nurturing and helping the congregation members to grow spiritually in Christ in the light of Scripture. As a Church we have been involved in serving our Hindi Urdu speaking community and those connected with them. After serving sixteen consecutive years as an ordained pastor, I have experienced that the Church is a loving, growing, and responsible family of God. This Hindi Urdu Mission Congregation is faithful to the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ recorded in Matthew 22:37, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and your neighbor as yourself”.
I would like to encourage you all to please come and enjoy the fellowship and worship services in your own language. Study the Word of God within your own cultural perspective.
Once again I would like to express my heartiest thanks to the members and friends who have been supporting the Ministry on a regular basis.
For all your Pastoral services you can reach to the pastor at (909) 702-3016.
With Grace and Peace,
The Reverend Lamuel J. Jacob
