Dear Members and Friends of The Bloomfield UMC
"Greetings in the Precious Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.
It is my distinct joy and privilege to be called to serve this great church and community at this time. My family and I are excited to be on this journey with you. Thank you for your warm welcome and I look forward to getting to know all of you personally and to meet all the community partners, churches, organizations and friends of the church. Transitions can be full of emotions and uncertainties, but I am reminded of the words of scripture where Paul was given the profound assurance in 2 Corinthians 12:9 “my grace is sufficient for you".
As we begin this journey together, I ask that you pray intentionally for God’s holy power, presence and provision for this new season in the life of the Bloomfield UMC I am excited and looking forward to us doing great and wonderful things for our Lord and Savior in this church and community . 1 John 5:14 reminds us “this is the confidence we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to his will ,he hears us". I challenge you to be audacious and bold and invite your neighbors, friends and family to come and worship with us, because we know God can touch hearts, change lives, renew and refresh souls and their connection to God.
I pray that we may experience the joy of working together , worshiping with passion, studying God’s words and loving each other as God loves us. Know that there is always a place for you at the table of love. One of my favorite scripture passages is in the Book of Isaiah 43:19 “I am about to do a new thing, now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert". God is up to something new and we would love you to be a part of it.
I invite you to stop by any Sunday morning at 11:00 am as we join in worship.May you experience God’s grace and mercy in abundance.
