Pastor Chris is looking forward with great anticipation to her first Sunday on July 1st. Her message will be based Mark 5:21-43, and titled "Do Not Fear: Only Believe". Rev Beaudoin (bode'-win) will be leaving Mesa, Arizona on Monday, June 25th, and driving here to arrive mid-week. We pray for her safe travel, and a few nights of solid rest before meeting us on July 1st for worship.
Part of the United Methodist philosophy is an itinerant ministry. We find ourselves in the midst of wishing Pastor Ron Van Lente and his wife Kathy the very best as they move into a new appointment with another church. We welcome the arrival of Rev. Christine Beaudoin as our new Pastor, effective July 1, 2018, and her husband Mike. The Beaudoins come to CUMC from Mesa Arizona where Rev. Christine served at Velda Rose United Methodist Church.
As the Church Council has written: "Please keep Rev. Christine and Mike, and Pastor Ron and Kathy in your prayers during this time of change. May we trust in God’s amazing grace and in the love of Christ as we move into the future."
As part of this transition, you may be interested in some of the following dates, which are somewhat flexible as planning continues:
June 10 9:15 and 11:14am worship services - Pastor Ron's "Parting Words".
June 10 12:15pm. Picnic/Potluck Party to celebrate Pastor Ron & Kathy's years of service at CUMC.
July 1 9:15 and 11:14am Rev. Christine's initial worship services.
July 8 Welcoming celebration and potluck for Rev. Christine and Mike at 12 noon.
a compassionate people, seeking, serving, sharing, discovering the love of Jesus, together.
