From OUR Pastor

Dear Friends,

What a great time of year as we enter into May and June. Celebrations of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Children’s Day, graduations, baptisms and Pentecost fill these two months with great joy and excitement. I hope you will join us for all these great celebrations.

The Greater NJ Annual Conference will be meeting in Wildwood, NJ, May 20-22. All are welcome to come down and visit and share in the celebration of the ministries which are occurring among the United Methodists of our area. We (I) are/am blessed to witness our own Rev. Wil Wilson being ordained as an Elder within the U.M. Church. The service will be on Sunday evening at 7:00 PM in the Wildwood Convention Center. All are welcome to attend.

This Spring we also witnessed two of our members become lay servants within our conference. Maryann Brandt and Emma Finn. Congrats ladies on stepping up in leadership within the ministry of Chews,

Our Summer schedule will begin on June 24th with Worship each Sunday at 9:30 AM. Traditional Worship will be held in the Sanctuary and Contemporary in the Davidson room. We will have Unified Worship on Communion Sundays July 1st, July 29th, and September 9th.

Once again this summer we will have “Chews in the Park” at the Timber Creek Park on Chews Landing Rd. at the Amphitheater in the Woods. We will meet on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM

beginning June 21st through September 6th. Come on out and Worship with us in the beauty of God’s creation. Invite your friends and neighbors to join you in Worship at the Park.

Chews is alive and well, making disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Thank you for being a part of a movement which truly brings hope and change for the world.

Transforming the world with you,

 Pastor Bill

P. S. As many of you know, Dawn and I are so excited to be grandparents again with the birth of our new granddaughter, Sage Marie Wilson on Palm Sunday, March 25th to Lou and Christa Wilson and big sister, Rosie.
