Pastor's Letter

February 18, 2016
 
Dear Friends,
 
  Think about a time when you've faced a difficult situation - a serious illness, a rift in a relationship, a set-back at work.  It was a challenging journey. Maybe you found yourself experiencing things that you never thought you'd face; an effect was that you didn't seem like yourself. Maybe friends and family even noticed.
  As we continue our Lenten journey, Following in the Footsteps of Jesus, we see Jesus bring people through challenges in their life - like healing people from illnesses. But as they are restored to health, are they restored back to "business as usual?" or has there been some kind of inner transformation? We'll explore that this Sunday.    
  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,
Linda
ALL Hands On Deck!   The Easter Egg Hunt is Coming! The Easter Egg Hunt is Coming! Saturday, March 19th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. This is a significant opportunity for Buckhall UMC to welcome our community's children and their families to join us in some fun. But we need your help. Right now, we need 2-3 people to work along-side this year's experienced Easter Egg Hunt coordinators in order to learn the ropes - so that they can coordinate next year. AND.........we need lots of hands to help with preparations, set-up, presentation, and clean-up.   Please be in prayer.
