Pastor's Letter

March 18, 2016
Dear Friends,
Life is full of ups and downs. We'd love to stay in those "up" moments; and go from "up" moment to "up" moment.   But stuff happens and we find ourselves facing challenges. Sometimes we wonder how we will get through this "down" time. This Sunday is Palm-Passion Sunday. Join us for some palm waving and hearing the story of Jesus' passion which reminds us that God knows what it feels like to experience going from the "ups" to the "downs. "
I look forward to worshiping this you this Sunday. Please be in prayer for people who do not have a church home and for how God is calling each of us, at Buckhall United Methodist Church, to reach out to them.
Yours in Christ,
