Pastor WalterCross Talk

In the United Methodist Church, summer is a time of transition. This has been readily apparent in this congregation over the last two years. In 2016 you said goodbye to a beloved pastor and welcomed me as your incoming pastor. Last year, we welcomed Pastor Bridget in as our new Director of Intergenerational Ministries, and eventually as our Associate Pastor. What a gift she has been to the ministries of this church. It’s hard to imagine that just a year later, we have to say goodbye as she leaves us to head off to her new congregation.

Even as we say goodbye, this is an opportunity to be excited. I look forward to sharing my upcoming Ordination with many of you at Annual Conference this year, or at the reception the church is hosting that weekend. I thank you for all the love and support over the last two years, as I have worked diligently to meet all the requirements of my residency. It’s been a long and complicated process, and I am glad that it's at its end.

However, we know that with all journey’s the end isn’t the end, rather it’s a beginning. As we say goodbye to Bridget, her ending here is just the start of a new leg on her journey. My end of the process to Ordination is a new leg of my service to the church. Transition isn’t always bad, this summer things will definitely change, but we have new opportunities as we move forward. I ask that you join with me this summer in praying about what God is doing in our community and what opportunities we have to live out our faith moving forward.

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.
