Haman came in, and the king said to him, "What shall be done for the man whom the king wishes to honor?" Haman said to himself, "Whom would the king wish to honor more than me?" - Esther 6:6 (Click here to read full Devotional)

News from Pastor Denise

Well, the weeks have stretched into months, and the months have stretched into more months. While we are closer to reopening for worship, we aren’t quite there yet.

Though, as I think about it, our church has never really closed; perhaps the building to a large extent, but not the true Church, which is the people. We are still worshiping, serving, praying, connecting, giving, and filling the needs of our souls and our communities. (Click Here to read all of the Nexus)

Lectionary Study Group

Have you ever wanted to comment on one of my sermons, or wanted to know why I focused on one area at the expense of another area? Have you ever been interested in learning more about the context of a particular biblical story? Well, I am interested in your comments.

I am holding a Lectionary Study Group via zoom. We would get together each week to look at the text that will be preached on the coming Sunday. The class time would be one hour.

If you are interested in attending, let’s plan to get together every Wednesday at 2:00 pm. Please call the SAUMC Office for link information.

All are invited, and I hope to see you - Pastor Denise

07.01.2020 Devotional

Greeting Friends,

When two blind men sitting along the road heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, "Show us mercy, Lord, Son of David!"…Jesus stopped in his tracks and called to them. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. "Lord, we want to see," they replied. - Matthew 20

Even as a child, I never believed in the idea of God as the great gift-giver or some kind of fairy godmother. I guess that I have always been pretty pragmatic. I learned pretty early that knowing Jesus doesn’t make a person immune to loneliness, addiction, financial problems, depression, and on and on. In church we learned that God gives us what God thinks that we need and what God wants us to have.

But that doesn’t mean that we don’t pray for what we want either for ourselves and others. Though hopefully, our relationship with God is more than us asking and expecting to receive. We desire that our prayer lives are centered on more than just our own needs and desires. (Click here for the rest of the Devotional)

Reimagining Life Together

Guidelines for Reopening Buildings and Returning to In-Person Ministry

Linked below is a new document titled Reimagining Life Together. It aspires to provide guidance on the requirements and recommendations for local churches and ministry settings to reopen buildings and return to in-person ministry activities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Reimagining Life Together is a living document subject to change as new information is received about the virus and the best practices to mitigate its spread. We will periodically update this document with modest changes in the interest of perfecting this work. Pastoral leaders will be notified if and when significant changes are made. In both cases, the front page of the document will provide information noting the date of the latest revision.

The document at the bottom of this article "Reimagining Life Together" has a link (it is 26 pages).
