Pastor's Corner June 29: Growing Deeply, a daily scripture guide

Fellow Faith Journeyers:

What a blessing to be here with you as we walk into a new beginning. I have the privilege of serving alongside you as we grow deeply in Christ. One way we do that is by reading and applying scripture. Last Sunday Rev. Kendall introduced Growing Deeply, a daily scripture guide. The guide roots us in the scripture from the sermon as well as prepares our hearts for the sermon that is come.  Simply put, scriptures Monday through Wednesday highlight the sermon you’ve heard.  Thursday through Saturday scriptures will ready us for the following week’s message.

Pastor's Corner June 22: Welcome New Pastors


I am grateful for your faithfulness to God’s ongoing work at Missouri UMC, and especially during this time of transition.  You have said goodbye to Revs.  Amy, Larry and Molly, and have celebrated their gifts and contributions to this community of faith.  I know that you will join me as we continue to pray for them as they start they continue their journey with God in new places.
