Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is with a great joy that I am reappointed as your Pastor for the 11th year! It is hard to believe where the time has gone. The time of ministry with you has been a real blessing for Dawn and myself. This year is also my 42nd year as an appointed Pastor within the United Methodist Church.
I am looking forward to our exciting summer schedule of Worship, study, and fellowship. Once again we are worshiping on Thursday nights at 6:30 PM in the Amphitheater of the Timber Creek Park on Chews Landing Road. Every Thursday will include music and preaching, and periodically, Holy Communion. The park is handicap accessible. Join us and bring your family and friends with you.
Sunday morning Worship will be at 9:30 AM each week with Contemporary Worship in the Davidson room and Traditional Worship in the Sanctuary. For Communion Sundays (July 1, July 29, and September 9) we will meet together in the Sanctuary with a blended style of Worship, including Contemporary and Traditional music. A one-room Sunday School Class will be held each week for children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade. Please take time to invite others to join us.
Vacation Bible School for all ages will be meeting on 4 Wednesday evenings: July 11, July 18, July 25, and August 7 beginning with dinner at 6:00 PM. The evenings will conclude at 8:00 PM. Come on out and bring friends, neighbors, and children of all ages. See p. 6 for more details.
Pitman Camp Meeting will be holding services throughout the Summer on Sunday evenings at 7:30 PM. I will be preaching on July 29th and the band “The One Way Express” will be sharing with us. See p. 13 for the list of Preachers and musicians.
As you can see, summer at Chews is alive and growing. Plan to join us and bring people with you. God is doing a new thing among us and there is great excitement brewing. Wishing a blessed and restful summer.
In His Service,
