Thank you for visiting the Branchport United Methodist Church website. We believe that God calls all people to gather in a community of faith, to share in the Good News of Jesus Christ as we make disciples for the transformation of the world. We come together to strengthen our faith through worship, prayer, education, outreach, study, and fellowship as we grow and develop our spirituality and faithfulness. We try to be Christ-like in all that we do and live to the examples as seen through the written word of God.
If you are looking for a church home we would sincerely hope that you will join us some Sunday as we together travel and accept the challenges of discipleship and witness to the whole world of this wondrous love of Jesus Christ.
Psalms 23: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through thevalley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
It is hard to believe that we are in the middle of summer already. I hope that you all are enjoying some lazy days and relaxing in the peace of God. I have been approached by our District Superintendent Jeff McDowell and asked to consider taking Milo Center as a second charge. Through prayer I decided to say yes. I have been extremely blessed to serve here at Branchport. This is what God has called me to do. I want to reassure you that I know that we have a lot of work to do and much more to accomplish and that will remain a priority to me. I have decided that I will hold off on my studies at FLCC for the semester and cut my hours back at Rite Aid, though I will be continuing my Course of Study. This adjustment allows more time for visitations, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything or if you just want to visit. With this addition to my Sunday morning it is necessary to change our worship time to 10:30am starting August 6th. I know many have just gotten the hang of the 10am time and I thank you for your understanding. The Red, White and Blue 5k on the 4th of July was a success! We hosted almost 200 people that day. Thank you to all who worked hard to put it together and those who participated! Prayers for next year! VBS is August 14-18. This year’s theme is Everywhere Fun Fair – Where God’s World Comes Together! Please consider donating your time or resources to this mission! There are children in our neighborhood that need to hear about the love of God. Who can you invite? The Labor Day Chicken BBQ is Saturday September 2nd. I urge you to come help! Many hands make light work. If you cannot work that day consider providing food and coming for a great meal. There is always wonderful fellowship along with delicious food. Our lessons these past few weeks have centered around Matthew 13 and the Parables that Jesus used to instruct his followers. I invite you to read it for yourself if you have not been able to be in church. God has a great purpose for each and every one of us. Are we prepared to receive His word and allow it to take root? Are you facing the SON for direction and growth? Are you allowing the seed that God has planted in you to sprout forth goodness and love for those around you? We all have so much to learn, thank God we have each other to support and encourage along the way!
In the Grace and Peace of God,
