Pastor's Letter
October 1, 2015
 
Dear Friends,
 
Last night, we experienced Charge Conference.   This year's theme is "From Membership to Discipleship."   It means that we are on a journey of deeper engagement with Jesus Christ; and it is not only us as individuals, but us as a congregation, as the body of Christ, here, in Manassas.
 
This Sunday we will reflect on that journey as we begin the series: From His Hands Through Our Hands. How are we, ourselves, growing in Jesus' love, and how are we helping others join us in this journey? How has living out this kind of love made a difference in our lives? How is sharing this love making a difference in the community around us?
 
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
