Gifts to this offering support a variety a causes such as: at-risk youth, fathers gripped by addiction, wrap loving arms around young mothers who have nowhere to turn, serve survivors of domestic violence, prisoners seeking God, ministries that advocate for social justice, and others lacking opportunity. Learn more about this special offering.

“Such a wonderful story,
All to our Father for His Glory,
He looked down on earth and found one young man to be worthy,
Me,
I promise I have done nothing to deserve it,
And the praise and honor all goes to Him, I would never pervert it,
Please realize I am but a small pawn,
In His amazing plan and purpose.
That we all can be a part of on this day,
by the way, Thank You for your generosity in the past and on today.
Know that I, Brennen D. Boose, am the image which your gifts portray.
I AM HUMAN RELATIONS DAY.”

Brennen is a leader in the JustUs Youth and the Community Developers movement, a part of the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church. Human Relations Sunday funds this movement.

Blessings in the New Year!

January 2015

Greetings in the New Year!

The sun is shining! The air is fresh! And a new year begins…full of hope…full of new possibility…a time to let go of the old and be renewed in Faith.

For many 2014 held big changes through moves away by loved ones, new additions to the family, changes in work situations, illnesses and even loss through death of family and friends.

As I sit and meditate on this new year, my hope and prayer is that everyone remembers to move gently and kindly into it, first with yourselves and then with those around you.

May you be kind and gentle with yourselves through whatever you are facing…the pain of loss and illness…all the extra work needed to “keep things afloat”… the effort that a new baby brings.  May you let the wonder of God’s world found all around us, lighten your hearts and fill you with gratitude.

May you be less concerned with what and how you think you “should be” and more willing to trust in The One Who Loves you unconditionally, The One Who Knows what you need and Who is always with you. May your heart be filled with God’s Love and may you know yourself as Loved!

May you also reach out to help and be helped. We are all on this journey together and we are meant to share our joys and our sorrows with each other in Christ’s Love.  May the small wonders found in family, friends and new born babies fill you with Joy,  Peace, Hope and Love in the wonderment that is this life we share! Blessings in Christ to you all,

Pastor Emily
