Words cannot express the emotions I feel as I see God working through this church and the surrounding community. In the pages of this month's newsletter you will find blessing after blessing, miracle after miracle, and opportunity and opportunity for everyone who reads it to be a part of the Kingdom of God busting out of Centenary UMC this fall here in Shullsburg, WI.
Before the world comes in and makes its demands on your time and your calendar, read through these pages carefully and prayerfully. By the power of the Holy Spirit discern what events, activities, ministry opportunities and worship experiences you want and, perhaps, want your family to be a part of this year in order for all of us as children of God and as a church community to grow in our relationship with God, through Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I pray you do not feel obligated, but come because you feel drawn. I pray you never feel pressured, but instead feel called to be a part of something. I pray you know nothing of guilt, but feel inspired to know more about what God has done for us through Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit by hearing His Word, singing His praises and being His hands and feet here at CUMC.
May God bless you and I so look forward to witnessing with you all the glory of God being revealed here this fall.
