Good Afternoon!

Summer will officially (according to the calendar) be here June 21st. Can’t you just wait for all that hot air going on!

Harold Nelson is the gentleman who updates our church website with the prayer list, newsletter, etc… please lift him in prayer as he had heart surgery yesterday. Also, the prayer list and newsletter will be delayed for a while until he recovers. I will send out the prayer list and the newsletter copies will be at the front of the church. Thank you!

Here is the diddy for the day!

Martin arrived at Sunday school late. Miss Walter, his teacher, knew that Martin was usually very punctual so she asked him if anything was wrong. Martin replied no, that he had been going fishing but, his dad told him that he needed to go to church. Miss Walter was very impressed and asked the lad if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing? Martin replied, 'Yes he did. Dad said he didn't have enough bait for both of us.'

Here is what’s happening off of our front porch…. So many of our programs are discontinued until September, so the happenings are short….

June 23rd – After the 11 am service there will be a Farewell Party for Pastor Walter. All are welcome! Don’t forget the NOISY OFFERING!

June 25th – Newsletter deadline! Get those articles in! 6:45 am is the Emmaus Breakfast. It always smells like bacon in the kitchen when I come to work! Yum!

June 27th – Pastor Richard and Janneke are moving into the parsonage and will need help to unload their belongings. If you have a strong back and can help, we could

      use your helping hands! Or, if there are any Youths that would like to meet the Pastor and help … this would be a great time!

June 29th – Armstrong’s moving sale starts at 8 am. Where: 1682 Old Rocksprings Rd., Leakey, TX  (830-232-5809). There will be power tools, tools, kitchenware, furniture, gardening supplies, clothing, shoes, housewares, stop by and see what you might need!

Well, that is about all I know for this week! Here is something to ponder….  Have a good day! Rolling – Rolling – Rolling on the river!

Why did Jesus withdraw to the village of Ephraim?

  1. a.     One of his disciples fell ill.
  2. b.     The Sanhedrin was plotting to kill him.
  3. c.      To commune with his heavenly Father.
  4. d.     To recruit his apostles.

Answer: B    - John 11:53-54

Pastor WalterWelcome Pastor Richard and Janneke!

I was born and raised in San Antonio and have been a follower of Jesus for about 50 years. I attended public, Christian and military schools growing up and was called to ministry as a young teen in the mid 1970’s. Ever since, I have been involved in ministry and ministry leadership, including working as a missionary for a year in the Netherlands, where I met the most amazing woman in existence, my wife, Janneke. Together, we have been involved with a variety of churches in San Antonio since we moved there in 1987. More recently I have been privileged to serve in various lay leader roles at Alamo Heights UMC since 2006 and have been the Music Director at Asbury Church, the mission church of AHUMC, since 2014.

Janneke is a native of the Netherlands and has been a believer in Jesus since 1976. We met in Amsterdam while working together at a Christian Youth Hostel ministering to both travelers and those in difficult circumstances. How we each arrived there is an interesting set of stories we are looking forward to sharing with you. After a few years’ courtship, we married in the Netherlands and moved to San Antonio so I could finish my undergraduate degree at UTSA.

We thought we’d be in foreign missions once I finished college, but life didn’t go that path. Instead, I served God, my family and my community in hospitality, ophthalmology and banking, ever anticipating a time that we would transition to full-time ministry. Who knew it would take us 32 years, but we are thrilled to be making that transition.

We are excited God has placed us in Leakey and are eager to walk along His path together with you. We are also looking forward to getting to know each of you and introducing you to the rest of our family - a daughter, son-in-law and 2 & 1/2 year old granddaughter, and another daughter with her boyfriend, all of whom live in San Antonio. The opportunity to become part of the stories of each of your lives is such an honor to us. We can hardly wait to start connecting into the unique mission God has for placed before us as a community. Thank you for the warm and genuine welcome you have already extended to us.

Thanks and God Bless

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.
