Pastor's letter - April 25, 2015

Dear Friends,

When you think of the word "friend", who comes to mind?  Is it someone who has known you most of your life?  A person who was with you during a difficult time?  The one who  "gets"  you?  The term "friend" encompasses many kinds of relationships.   Regardless of the kind of friend you are thinking about just now, we know that having friends is one of life's blessings. 

This Sunday we will discover what it means to have a healthy friend relationship and what our faith has to offer to strengthen and deepen our friendships.
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please continue to pray for the mission of Jesus Christ here at Buckhall UMC:  to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Yours in Christ,

Linda

Pastor's letter - April 10, 2015

Dear Friends,

During the next few weeks, we will be talking about relationships. We are all a part of relationships by virtue of being human. Think about the many ways you are connected to other people; as a child, spouse, sibling, parent, co-worker, friend, etc. But with all this relating, do you ever feel that some relationships just aren’t as satisfying as they could be? Something seems to be missing. Join us as we reflect on what it takes to develop and maintain healthy, authentic relationships.

This Sunday, we begin with the relationship that informs and influences all our other relationships and that is our relationship with God. Come and discover the essential ingredients for a satisfying bond between ourselves and God.

I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please pray for the mission of Buckhall United Methodist Church: To make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Yours in Christ,

Linda

PS I hope you will attend the “All-Church Meeting” this Sunday, 4/12 @ 10:00am between services. As a church family, we sometimes face challenges, and need to come together to discuss “family matters.” Your presence and your prayers are appreciated.
