Staying Connected This Summer

Hi friends,

As summer unofficially begins this Memorial Day weekend, we ask that as you take time away you also stay connected via our online platforms. Our staff will do our best to update you on ministries throughout the summer months. We hope that you will use our Facebook page to tune into Sunday morning worship and help us celebrate the discernment of God's Spirit moving among us. Our website has a seasonal page you can monitor for ministry highlights. We have former pastors coming to preach this summer in our 150 years celebration as well. Stay tuned for more announcements.

Your appointed clergy, Pastor Paul and Chansin, look forward to being reappointed to serve Manchaca UMC. We will receive our continuing appointments at the Rio Texas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi on June 5-8. It is our pleasure to be among you and serve in clergy leadership here in this church.

Please lift up Annual Conference delegates Laura Harris, Ron Mize, Malcolm Nelson, Pat Stine, and Sue Thomason as they represent you this year. Chansin and I will join our delegation in Corpus Christi for a gathering of delegates who come to worship, learn, and serve. Delegates and clergy from our remaining 250 churches in the Rio Texas Conference will make some important decisions including the district restructuring of the annual conference, considering a reduced conference budget proposal, and hearing a report from our delegates to the recent General Conference. As information related to General Conference action on the regionalization of the United Methodist Church may not be on hand for us to consider in June, we likely will be called into a special annual conference session later this year or early next year for that purpose.

Thank you for being the church called to give witness in faith and spreading the love of Christ in this area. Grace and peace be with you!

Along the Way

Pastor Paul
