Good Afternoon!

Here is the diddy for the day!
(Sometimes we just need to smile. This will definitely help you smile.)
After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the streets and alleys, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in the puddles through her kitchen window. The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his sibling by the back of his head and shoved his face into the water hole. As the boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother ran to the yard in a panic. 'Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?!' she asked as she shook the older boy in anger. 'We were just playing 'church' mommy,' he said. 'I was just baptizing him . . . . in the name of the Father, the Son and in . . . the hole-he-goes.' "The evidence of God's presence far outweighs the proof of His absence."

Here is what’s happening off of our front porch….

Pastor RichardWelcome Pastor Richard and Janneke!

Howdy Church!

And thank you all for the warm welcome we’ve felt this entire month. We already love Leakey and all the people we’ve met here and it’s very much due to you. You have been making what has been a major life change for us very comfortable.

But Janneke and I aren’t the only ones experiencing change at the moment. We’ve got folks in our congregation experiencing health changes that have long-term consequences for their lifestyles. And we are all experiencing changes in our society and community this year. Our society continues to become more “secular” and with a greater and clearer divide between those who live their lives yielded to Christ and those who pursue only or primarily their own interests.

It’s disorienting to see our society shift from values, shared language and a culture that was once common to us to new val-ues, a new shared language and a new culture that doesn’t always jibe with our former way of living. This “new” divide is pre-senting new opportunities for us to show Christ’s love. The tricky part is that these opportunities may be in ways we may not be looking for or expecting. We need to be conscious and intentional about adjusting to new ways of sharing and showing Christ’s love with our deeds and our words.

Our mission of making disciples hasn’t changed, but the culture we were making disciples in has changed. Let’s think individu-ally and especially together, about how or what we need to change in our lives and our worshipping community so we contin-ue to be meaningful ambassadors of the kingdom of heaven in this country of death.

Those who are lost are often looking for answers. You’ve been so welcoming to me and Janneke. The challenge facing our church is how can we pivot those welcoming skills to be the welcoming body of Christ to those in this “new” culture?

Your warmly welcomed pastor,
Pastor Richard

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.
