Senior Pastor’s Message

Have A Breakout Summer

             Special end of Spring and Summer greetings to you all in the Wonderful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I hope everyone will have a Breakout Summer and that you will “discover your strength in God.”  Special congratulations to our High School graduates, Emily Sherrer and Chase Utsey, for all their accomplishments, as well as our other graduates at each level, from Leika’s Lambs on up.  A lot will be going on the next few weeks:

  • Ascension Sunday is May 28 with Memorial Day May 29. We remember and honor those who gave their all.  God bless their sacrifice, their families, and the U.S.A.
  • Our Vacation Bible School is Wednesday, May 31 – Friday, June 2. Please pray for and plan to help support or participate with V.B.S. in some way.  God will bless!  The theme this year is “Hero Central – Discover Your Strength in God.”
  • Youth Summer Trip to Montgomery June 2-3, for “Breakout” Montgomery and for kayaking. Many have signed up.  Sounds like a great momentum builder for our Youth going into summer.
  • June 4 is Pentecost Sunday. We hope to have a good attendance as we observe and celebrate Pentecost.
  • Annual Conference is June 4-7, at Frazer Memorial UMC in Montgomery. The theme this year is “Imagine: By Faith It Can Happen.” Please pray for God’s blessings on our Annual conference, our Pastor, delegates, and members attending.  Thanks to everyone who prepared the health kits to help with UMCOR needs.
  • June 14 is Flag Day. Long may it wave in the land of the free.
  • Come celebrate Father’s Day June 18 and enjoy the first day of Summer with us!
  • June 20 is “moving day” for moving pastors. As you may know, I will have moved out by June 20 and your new pastor will be making plans to move in.  A new pastor’s first official day is July 1, although we are not scheduled to preach until July 9.  Please do your best to plan to give a warm Church Street UMC welcome to your new pastor and his wife, Rev. Lance and Liz Eiland, who come to us from Robinson Springs UMC in Millbrook.  If you would like to do so, it is appropriate and encouraged for you to call or write them.  Their address is 614 Marlyn Drive, Prattville, AL 36067, and his office number is (334) 285-2488. More information will be forthcoming from the SPRC and in the Link.

I count it a joy to serve the Lord wherever and whenever I can.  I am thankful to have had a meaningful time of service here at Church Street UMC.  Thanks for the faith, kindnesses, prayers and love you have shared.

Yours in Christ,

Bro. Jim Meadows
