I will not be joining you in worship this Sunday; but am attending Annual Conference in Roanoke, VA. I enjoy Annual Conference. Pastors and lay people from all over the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church gather to discuss issues of business.
We also worship; having a special service to license, commission, or ordain people for ministries; a service of remembrance for the saints who have died in the last year; and to celebrate and thank clergy retirees. It is also inspiring to hear stories of how God is working among the churches in the Virginia Conference. I also enjoy re-connecting with friends and colleagues who serve in other parts of Virginia. Please pray for safe travel.
I am also grateful to be able to bring 51 school kits which Buckhall's United Methodist Women have assembled. These kits will be distributed throughout the world and enable children to receive the supplies they need for success in education. Thank you!
I will miss worshiping with you this Sunday, but you will be blessed as Gina Binder will bring the message.
Please be in prayer
Please be in prayer for people who do not have a church home. How is God leading us to reach out to them?
Yours in Christ,
