Pastor's Paragraph for April 22, 2018
APRIL 22, 2018
As we prepare for our upcoming Church Conference on April 26th when at 7pm we will elect members of the new Unified Leadership Council, I have felt overwhelmed with gratitude for all the ministry leaders who have faithfully served, leading Camp Hill UMC to this moment in time. Committee work is seldom noticed, much less thanked. And so, as we anticipate all that God has yet to do through new leadership in a new season, we also pause to look back on all that God has already done to build the kingdom through the beautiful ministry of this church. And, we recognize that God uses people as partners in this kingdom-building experience. And so, we do want to express our profound gratitude for the countless hours hundreds of people have given of their time in meetings and in ministry engagement and for the variety of gifts and talents that each person has brought to this community that has allowed for the life of Christ to be made known.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you – to past and current members of the Staff Parish Relations Committee, the Finance Committee, the Board of Trustees, the Nominations and Leadership Development Committee, the Investment Team, and so many other sub-committees that have faithfully served, sharing with each other and the world the love of God through their work and prayer! We hope that you will come to the April 26th 6pm reception in the Gathering Space and the 7pm Church Conference to recognize the service of these past and present leaders and to elect and pray for new leaders in this time of transition! Remember this morning that after both worship services there are opportunities to meet and greet the nominees for the Unified Leadership Council in the Fireside Room. We hope you’ll take that time to get to know those that we hope will be the leaders of Camp Hill UMC for the next one, two, and three years!
