Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

Wow. May is already here. The snow we have received in April has made for a tough Spring. But, from what I’m told, this is typical for Wyoming. I am still not used to it after living in Wyoming now for 9 years!

It has been great to be back in worship with everyone and I’m so happy to see your smiling faces. It is so much easier to preach to faces than to a camera. For those of you wondering, I’m still posting the reading and sermon on Facebook. It will be on my page as well as on the church’s page. If you are not a “friend” of mine and would like to be, please send me a request. That way it will just pop up in your feed.

With Covid vaccinations getting into so many arms around the country, I’m hoping we can soon put this all behind us. If you have not received a Covid vaccine, I’d encourage you to do so. As a physician, I strongly endorse them. As a pastor, I believe that God wants us all to be as healthy as we can. I have gotten both my shots as I know many of you have as well.

At the church we will be having a “church work day” to clean up the outside of our building on May 23. We will have a potluck after service, then plan on going outside to trim bushes, plant plants and do whatever else is needed. Please plan on wearing your blue “It is well with my Soul” t-shirts and jeans/shorts. I look forward to working with you all!

Pentecost is also this month – on that same Sunday. This is the birthday of the church traditionally. As the Holy Spirit came down upon the apostles that day, they were missioned to preach to all the ends of the earth. We, too, are meant to do the same.

May 24 is “Aldersgate Day”. What is that? That is the day that John Wesley was assured of his own salvation. Prior to that he had questions of whether he would be saved. On that day he went to a band meeting on Aldersgate street in England. His “heart was strangely warmed” and that is when he knew that he knew that he knew that he was saved by Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. I pray that we all know this as well. Google it to find out more details!

May you have a beautiful May and I hope to see you all on Sunday mornings!
