Senior Pastor’s Message

Easter and May Blessings

Greetings to you in the Name of our Resurrected Savior Jesus Christ. “The Lord is Risen indeed!” (Luke 24:34)  We had a wonderful Easter service April 16.  We had an overflow attendance into the Calhoun Parlor.  Afterward, many commented, it was a great service from start to finish.  I hope you had a blessed Easter day. I pray we all may cherish the Easter message in our hearts forever.

Surely the presence of the Lord was evidenced among us this Easter.  In our seeking of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33), our goal is to hope to find and experience something of God, or from God, everyday – renewing our minds, refreshing our spirits and encouraging our hearts.

Leading up to Easter, we had the Easter Lenten messages and meals with our sister churches in town, including the delicious lunch we hosted on Wednesday, April 12, during Holy Week.  Many thanks to all our members that attended those meals and to those who so graciously hosted our luncheon in Windham Hall on Wednesday.

The lilies were so lovely, adding a special touch to the beauty of worship in the Sanctuary.  Thanks to all who provided them, and to those who helped decorate the flowered Cross outside on Church Street.

The Easter Egg hunt was a huge success.  I was so hoppy, oops, happy to see such a good group out at the Wendlands, as they were so gracious, generous, and brave to once again host our annual Egg hunt at their beautiful home.  Nearly all our kids were there, accompanied by a good group of adults.  It was a great day.  I wish everyone could have been there.  Special thanks to the Wendland family.

Confirmation Class of 2017.  I counted it a real joy to hold confirmation classes and to welcome two new Confirmands into our membership this year.  They are Clay Beers and Sarah Lloyd Free.  Be sure to let them know how proud we are of them and how glad we are that they are such a precious part of us.

Congratulations to our graduating high school seniors, Class of 2017.  Morgan Academy high school graduation is Friday, May 19.  We have two members graduating.  They are Emily Sherrer and Chase Utsey.  We are so proud of them all and pray God’s blessings on their plans for the future.

New Church website:  We are happy and excited to report that a new website has been built for Church Street UMC.  You may access it at www.churchstreetumcselma.org. Please be patient as we continue to make changes. We welcome  your suggestions.
