Jenna Morrison September 14, 2018: It’s a Beautiful Time - I don’t know about you, but I’m still pumped up after last weekend’s birthday celebration. There is something about taking time to celebrate and be grateful for the gifts we’ve been given through our church that is life-giving. All week long I’ve been reflecting on the time that we spent together — from our potluck on Saturday night to worship Read More
Jenna Morrison September 6, 2018: I Love Birthdays! - This might come as a surprise to you, but I love birthdays. Any birthday is my favorite holiday, because there is nothing like celebrating someone you love and reminding them that they are special! That’s one of the reasons I am so excited about this weekend. We have the chance to celebrate our church’s 15th Birthday! An amazing team of Read More
Jenna Morrison August 30, 2018: The Church is More Than a Building - I just need to take a second to brag today — on you! Last Saturday, we had over 60 volunteers at the church deep cleaning, clearing brush, trimming trees, and organizing closets! It was an incredible morning full of joy as we took ownership of our church and invested in our building and property. I know, I know, the church Read More
Jenna Morrison August 23, 2018: Planting Seeds - For the last two weeks I’ve spent a great deal of time watching tiny zinnia seeds grow. It was so interesting to watch how each seed sprouted at different times, grew at different rates, and is continuing to grow in its own way. The thing that is most interesting to me, however, is the way that each small seedling leans Read More
Jenna Morrison August 16, 2018: Love Your Church! - I’m going to be honest with you: worship last Sunday was A-MA-ZING! It was such a gift to be with you, celebrating the beginning of a new school year, praying for our students and the teachers and school staff members who will work to help teach and lead our children, and joining together to plant seeds of hope for our Read More
Jenna Morrison August 9, 2018: Back to School - I think “Back to School” season is one of my favorite times of the year. There is something about getting a fresh start — to learn, to grow, to set new goals, to dream of what is to come (to buy new office supplies …) — that makes me pause to take stock of the amazing things going on around Read More
Jenna Morrison August 2, 2018: Possibility - Thirty-three days ago, I stood in front of our church for the first time and proclaimed possibility for Faith United Methodist Church. Since that first moment, the possibility among us has only increased (along with my love of this church!). It is so inspiring to hear about and see first-hand the good work that Faith is doing in our community. Read More
Jenna Morrison July 19, 2018: Gifts and Talents - Last night, I sat in a room with 217 junior high students and 46 adults for the annual camp talent show. I watched brave students stand up in front of friends and strangers and perform for them — card tricks, piano pieces, dances, silly acts (one young woman could open a banana with her toes?!) — and every time someone Read More
Jenna Morrison July 12, 2018: Walking alongside each other - Have I told you lately how much I am enjoying being your pastor? Getting to know you and getting to worship with you is bringing such joy to my life! As I pray for our time together in worship this Sunday, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about little Samuel and his mentor Eli. I love this story Read More
Jenna Morrison July 5, 2018: FUN, Excitement, and Service - 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. Service announcement: I found mud in my ears Read More
