Change, transition, upheaval, oh my!
It truly has been a tumultuous few weeks.
As many of us know, our church has been in a dire financial situation for some time now. There are many factors that have contributed to this, not the least of which is our large mortgage on Simpson Hall. A group of our leaders have begun a journey called the Sustainability Pathway to take a hard look at where we are and forge a path forward. A plan developed quickly with the assistance of our District Superintendent. A summary of what has unfolded: Effective July 1st Simpson will move from full-time to part-time status. After much thought and prayer, I have agreed to move from full-time pastor to part-time as well. I have also been appointed to serve the Belford UMC church in addition to Simpson. We will be leaving the Simpson parsonage and moving into the Belford parsonage at the end of June. These steps alone will result in a substantial lessening of our financial burden. This will be an adjustment for us all, but necessary for our continued sustainability and growth.
I have been led, over the past two weeks, to two passages of scripture I want us all to focus on together as we go forward.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
I believe that God is making a new way for us.
We continue to journey together. Let us stay in worship and the Word together. Let us look ahead with excitement and great anticipation at what God will do!
Keep the faith!
