July 1st started my fourth year as the Pastor of the First United Methodist of Deposit and the Hale Eddy United Methodist Church. I have been blessed to be able to serve these two churches and watch the hand of God at work in the lives of each of its members. God moves in our lives differently and this spring the God of the universe moved in such a way none of us could have ever imagined. When we left church on March 15th none of us could have anticipated it would be four months before we would be able to worship together in our sanctuary. Though we were not together in body we were together in spirit, and at no time did we ever stop being the church.
Sunday July 12th, at 10:30 AM we will gather in our sanctuary once more to worship in person together. Our worship services will look different but we will be together raising our hearts to worship God though our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I hope you are able to join us, we will continue to have on-line services through Facebook live and also each recording of the device is uploaded to YouTube. I pray for your continued health and well being and look forward to seeing you face to face. Blessings to all.
