Today is a day of new beginnings for all of us. It’s my first Sunday at the 12th Street UMC in Huntingdon, PA. And it’s also the first Sunday for the newly merged Hope UMC (formerly Alexandria and Barree UMCs). This is also the beginning of a new charge – the Huntingdon 12th Street/Hope charge. I am grateful for God’s work in my life and in the lives of these congregations. I look forward to working with all of you in the future as we seek to be God’s faithful people in these communities!
As we move forward together, I seek to lead us to …
- Make disciples
- Develop leaders
- Transform our community for Jesus Christ!
Jesus said to his disciples after the resurrection: "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you" (John 20.21). Great words. May we go into our communities with the good news of Jesus Chrst!
