I decided to take a break from packing to write a brief blog post. Can you say “PROCRASTINATION”?? J
Two days from now I will be settling into my new home – the parsonage at the Oak Chapel United Methodist Church in Wooster, OH. Since my appointment to Oak Chapel was announced at the end of April, another smaller, rural congregation has been added to my charge. The Bethel United Methodist Church, a cute white wooden-framed country church, is just three miles away. I am really looking forward to working with the people at these two churches and am very excited about their shared ministry possibilities.
Yesterday I visited with people at both churches in preparation for my move there. The members at Oak Chapel were busy cleaning, painting and doing repairs to the parsonage in anticipation of my arrival. I really appreciate their caring for the church property and assets AND their pastor in such a wonderful way.
When I visited the church in May, I took some pictures of the church and the exterior of the parsonage and created a brief video. Some of my friends and family have already seen it, but I thought I would post it here as well.
I hope to blog more faithfully once I have moved and get settled. Until next time, peace …
