Pastor's Letter

February 12, 2016
Dear Friends,
  This Sunday is the 1st Sunday of Lent. The season of Lent is an opportunity to push the RESET button on our relationship with God; to examine our hearts and lives and to let go of those things that stand in the way of deepening our relationship with God. This also allows us to focus on those things that help us re-turn our hearts toward God and that help us keep God as a priority in our lives.
  As we begin our Lenten sermon series, Following in Jesus' Footsteps, we will look at Jesus' struggle with the temptations to do things for his own personal gain; which would lead to his ignoring his life's mission to reveal the heart of God and Gods' gift of salvation to the world. Jesus was strengthened in his ministry by doing those things that help kept him focused on the priority of his mission.  Understanding Jesus' experiences help us in our walk as his followers.
  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,

PS - 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. Please be in prayer.
