Good Afternoon and hope you are staying warm!

Here is the diddy for the day!
Cowboy Joe was telling his fellow cowboys back on the ranch about his first visit to a big-city church.
"When I got there, they had me park my old truck in the corral," Joe began.
"You mean the parking lot," interrupted Charlie, a more worldly fellow.
"I walked up the trail to the door," Joe continued.
"The sidewalk to the door," Charlie corrected him.
"Inside the door, I was met by this dude," Joe went on.
"That would be the usher," Charlie explained.
"Well, the usher led me down the chute," Joe said.
"You mean the aisle," Charlie said.
"Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit there," Joe continued.
"Pew," Charlie retorted.
"Yeah," recalled Joe. "That's what that pretty lady said when I sat down beside her."

Pastor WalterCross Talk

It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone, for some this was a great year that seemed too soon, others are looking forward to saying good riddance to a year that was challenging. Even with the challenges that 2018 has brought, it was a pretty good year. Over this year we have cried at funerals for several of our brothers and sisters in Christ, celebrated the joy of Baptism, and welcomed several new members into the family. So here we are again at the dawning of a new year, full of hope, promise, and new opportunities.

I know that this time of year, many of us make New Year’s resolutions. We promise that we are going to eat better, exercise more, or do something new to make ourselves better this year. While our resolutions often focus on our physical health, I think it’s of great importance that we think about out spiritual health as well. What would it look like to rededicate ourselves to God? One way we can do that is part of the Covenant renewal service, where we pledge ourselves anew to God. Part of the prayers in that service says:

Lord, make me what you will.
I put myself fully into your hands:
      put me to doing, put me to suffering,
      let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you,
      let me be full, let me be empty,
      let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and with a willing heart
      give it all to your pleasure and disposal.

Can you imagine what our lives and our community would look like if we would pray this daily and fully surrender to what God has in store for us? This prayer is part of my new year's resolution for 2019, to pray it daily and to ask God to continue to transform my heart for service to others. Friends, will you join with me in claiming 2019 as a year of transformation, renewal, love, and service? I don’t know what our path will look like this next year, but I do look forward to walking it with you.

Grace and peace,
Pastor Walter

History of the United Methodist Church

On April 23, 1968, The United Methodist Church was created when Bishop Reuben H. Mueller, representing The Evangelical United Brethren Church, and Bishop Lloyd C. Wicke of The Methodist Church joined hands at the constituting General Conference in Dallas, Texas. With the words, "Lord of the Church, we are united in Thee, in Thy Church and now in The United Methodist Church," the new denomination was given birth by two churches that had distinguished histories and influential ministries in various parts of the world.

Theological traditions steeped in the Protestant Reformation and Wesleyanism, similar ecclesiastical structures, and relationships that dated back almost two hundred years facilitated the union. In the Evangelical United Brethren heritage, for example, Philip William Otterbein, the principal founder of the United Brethren in Christ, assisted in the ordination of Francis Asbury to the superintendency of American Methodist work. Jacob Albright, through whose religious experience and leadership the Evangelical Association was begun, was nurtured in a Methodist class meeting following his conversion.
