Pastor's Letter

January 28, 2016
 
Dear Friends,
 
I hope you weathered the storm with plenty of power, food, and good company.   For me, Sunday morning didn't seem quite right; something was missing.   So I look forward to our worshiping together this Sunday.
This Sunday at the 11:15am service we will baptize a new little person and formally welcome her into the family of God and the church family of Buckhall UMC.   It is also a special time for you, as the congregation. During this baptism, you will make a promise to help this child come to know the love of God and to help her grow in faith. It is a joyful and an awesome call.
Please continue to pray for people who do not have a church home, and how Buckhall UMC can bless them; please pray for how God is calling you to reach out.
Yours in Christ,
Linda
