Pastor's Letter

 
December 18, 2015
Dear Friends,
During Advent we have focused on the gifts that God gives us - gifts that we need. This Sunday we will end our series by talking about the gift of peace. It is a gift that is sorely needed in our world today. It can be disheartening to listen to the stories of places and events marked by violence and pain. We wonder, is peace even possible?
People long ago wondered the same thing. They were living in a tumultuous time and the idea of peace seemed a remote reality. But then they received a message of God's compelling vision of peace for all the world; and that one day this peace would become a reality. That is a truly a gift worth receiving.  
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please be in prayer for the ways we can be a blessing to the neighbors around Buckhall UMC. Please pray for how God is calling you to be a blessing.
Yours in Christ,
Linda
PS Next Friday is Christmas Eve. We will offer 3 services. The 5:30pm service will be a service for family and children, where children are able to wear costumes and participate in the telling of the Christmas story. We will need assistance in helping children find a costume as they and their families join us. This service will also be a Candlelight/Communion service.
7:30pm and 9:30pm will be Candlelight/ Communion Services
At all services we need greeters and ushers. This is an opportunity to show our community the gracious hospitality of Buckhall. Please let me know how you can serve and at what service.
