Pastor's Message

 
Pastor Christy DirrenBAREFOOT BITS

July 2017

While the pastor is away the congregation will pray.

 

I am attending the Course of Study at Claremont School of Theology until July 14th. This is year three of five in the education process to be a Licensed Local Pastor. Classes this year include Reformation Theology, Gospels, Preaching, and Congregational Care. 

 

Thank you to Rev. Dr. Elisabeth Hampton-Gray for leading worship on July 2nd and Rev. Bill Gates for leading the worship experience on July 9th.

 

I will return to the pulpit July 16th.

 

While I am gone, please continue to pray for:

  • our faith family in need of healing, Doris Piersall and John Otting
  • our building partners
  • our neighbors
  • the vision God has for WPUMC

Last, our worship on July 30th is a 5th Sunday Sing and Eat. July is a perfect time to have a camp-themed day with songs, stories, and s'mores. Please invite others for this worship in the courtyard. It will be followed by a potluck. Roasted hot dogs, anyone?

 

Stay hydrated and full of grace,

Blessings,

Pastor Christy

 

P.S. - If you have not met our next administrative assistant, Josh, please stop by, call, or email to introduce yourself and say hello!
