All Church Conference Special Session
June 19th Tuesday - 3:00 pm

June 13, 2018

Our hearts are again heavy, but we must let you know that Edith Countryman passed away on Tuesday, June 12th, 2018. Edith had been in the hospital last week but seemed to be doing better and was released. Her health took a turn for the worse on Sunday evening, as she was suffering with congenital heart disease. More details on a Celebration of Life Service for Edith’s will be announced once the family has had time to come together.



One of my favorite stories found in the Bible is recorded in the book of Acts. In the story, two individuals are traveling down the road to Emmaus. We are not told why they were leaving Jerusalem, but recent events concerning Jesus’ death and reports of His resurrection are the focus of their thinking. While they were walking, a stranger, who initially seemed to be totally unaware of recent events, joined them; yet he later went on to explain how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies. It is only at supper that they finally realized that this ‘stranger’ is in fact Jesus himself. Wow! How dull must they be? Yet I have to ask myself how often God’s presence occurs in my life and I don’t see God’s action either. Regularly, we all have what I have come to refer to as ‘God moments.’ These moments are places when we particularly feel the uplifting of our spirits in our lives. This can be as simple as ‘happening’ to receive a call from an old friend, or, in an even more apparent moment, when we experience healing or see it in others. The variety of these expressions of God’s love differ throughout each day. Our general inability to see them strikes me that, like those two walking down to Emmaus road, we too share in a type of blindness. However, just as they eventually awakened to what had occurred, my hope is that we too will awaken to the ways in which God breaks into our lives as well – hence why this is one of my favorite stories.

Blessings, Pastor Dan

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
