Where Do We Go When Grieving?

I was truly honored to be present and to lead our confirmands as two of them were baptized last Thursday at the beach. The others were baptized earlier in their lives, but we all reflected on the meaning of baptism. As you know, we have eleven young people who will be confirmed and become members of Grace on Mother’s Day. Ms. Niki has done an excellent job with this confirmation class. 

This weekend at Grace is filled with activity. Friday night at 6pm is country store setup, and Saturday is country store time! Come out and serve! You will be blessed as you bless others. 

Sunday we will worship and celebrate as we recognize Mother’s Day and welcome our confirmands. We will also welcome several adults into membership at Grace! This will be an excellent day to give God thanks for so many good things in the life of this church. 

Pastor Gary will begin a sermon series Sunday with a first message entitled “Where Do We Go When Grieving?” His message references a number of scriptures, including Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1, Luke 23:55, and John 20:1. I encourage you to look these up and think about their common aspects. 

As busy as my life has been the past few months, I am so grateful for the dedicated work of our staff, Pastor Gary and Pastor Beth, and so many of you who contribute your time and talents to Grace UMC week after week. It remains my great privilege to serve as one of your pastors. 

I look forward to seeing you Sunday!
