Pastor's Letter
October 8, 2015
 
Dear Friends,
Last month, we saw pictures of house after house, burned to the ground, devastated by wildfires out west. Nothing was left but rubble and ash. Families had to flee with what they could fit in their cars and leave the rest to be consumed by the flames. If you found yourself in that situation, what would you want to take in your car? This scenario challenges us to think about what is truly important in life.
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday.   Please pray that Buckhall UMC continues to reach out to people who do not have a church home, and to people who do not know Jesus; that we provide ways to help people grow in their faith; and that we offer ways for people to serve Jesus by serving within the church and out in the community.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Linda
