Y’all… I don’t know about you, but I had SO MUCH FUN last week in worship with you. The energy that filled this building was palpable, and it was contagious! I, of course, took a power nap after worship and then headed back up to spend some time with the youth group.
I found mud in my ears long after I should have (cough, cough-Thursday).
As I’ve spent some time getting acclimated this week, it has become apparent that this church takes God’s call to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world very seriously. I’ve heard from so many people who lead this or head up that. From prison ministry to feeding students at Hickory Creek, from prayer requests to worship planning, Faith UMC has their hands in so many aspects of the life of this community, and for that I am grateful. It is going to be so much fun, and so inspiring, to be your pastor!
Over the next several weeks, I hope that you will join us for one of the listening sessions that your Staff Parish Relations Team (SPR) has worked to schedule. In these sessions, we will talk about your hopes and dreams for Faith UMC, and about the ways in which the Holy Spirit might be moving among us. There are sign-ups across from the Welcome Center. Please be sure to drop by on Sunday morning and pick a time that works for you!
Know that I am praying for you constantly and that I am counting down the moments until we are together again. Be sure to invite a friend to come with you on Sunday, so that they can experience all the wonderful things that Faith has to share!
All the best,
