FROM THE PASTOR

Dear Church Family,

Have you felt God calling you?

When Jesus passed through Galilee, he spoke to fishermen and a tax collector and he said to them "Come,

follow me!" And amazingly enough, they did. Maybe they had heard all about him already and were

jumping at the change to walk with Jesus. Maybe there was something about his voice or the way he

carried himself that they found they couldn't resist.

Jesus calls us all to follow him, and a Christian is one who has responded to his call. Even after making the

decision to follow him, the calls keep coming. He calls some to be parents and some to be teachers; he calls

some to serve in the leadership of the local church or to become healers; he calls many to the married life,

and some to be pastors. Jesus calls us to many different ministries and vocations throughout our lives of

faith. How might he be calling you?

In our church we are looking for leaders to help coordinate our Youth and Children's ministry, as well as

our Men's ministry. Might that be you? There are families who are hurting in our communities who've lost

loved ones. Is he calling you to reach out? The church needs pastors and missionaries and chaplain - could

he be calling you to that ministry?

"I can hear the Savior calling," says the old hymn. Have you given some prayerful thought lately to how

our Savior is calling you to follow him in this new year?

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless and keep you+

-Daniel

For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and

how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.

-Give Thanks Always-

Thank you to our acolytes that faithfully bring the light of Christ into worship each Sunday.

This is a great opportunity for our children to take part in worship and service to the church.

Thank you to the lay liturgists that assist Rev. Daniel with worship services. Your

commitment and dependability are much appreciated by all.

Thank you to UMM for preparing a meal for the youth group. Sharing your love for our

youth through service is wonderful!

A special thank you to Jerry Beauchamp for your commitment to the church as our Lay

Leader. The time you give in all areas of the church is commendable and greatly

appreciated.

New Eagle Scouts

BSA Troop 61 is pleased to announce that two scouts earned the rank of Eagle Scout in

January, Caleb Dixon and David Slater. Caleb is the son of Trenell Dixon and the late Melissa

Turner. He is a member of the Healing Place Church in St. Francisville. David is the son of

Wayne & Ann Slater and a member of SFUMC. Both scouts have been members of Troop 61

since 2013. Both are in the 11 th grade at WFHS where Caleb is a LT. Junior Grade and the

Operations officer in the NJROTC program and David is a member of the cross-country and

soccer teams.

To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, a Boy Scout must

fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills; only five out of 100

Scouts ever earn this rank. Caleb and David have held many different leadership positions in

the troop. They both spent a week in the Boundary Waters wilderness area at the BSA

Northern Tier High Adventure base in Ely, MN in the summer of 2018. Caleb is now an Asst.

Scoutmaster and David is a Junior Asst. Scoutmaster in Troop 61; helping other boys in their

scouting journey. Troop 61 is sponsored by the SFUMC-UMM.

LORD, Please walk beside me through this day. Clear the heavy air with the lightness of Your Presence.

Guide my hands and steady my heart that I may give comfort when I cannot give hope, that I may give

relief when I do not have a cure, and that I may radiate Your healing peace when the limits of science,

time, and the human body overwhelm. Amen.
