Pastor's Paragraph for July 1, 2018

JULY 1, 2018


Greetings, beloved!

It’s with great joy and excitement that we enter worship today to welcome our new Lead Pastor, The Rev. Dr. Gary Weaver, and his spouse, Cindy! Even long before Gary was appointed to serve with us, we prayed for him and for Cindy. We trusted that the Holy Spirit would guide the cabinet and bishop to appoint just the right pastor for such a time as this, and we believe that once again, God has been faithful!

Pastor Gary Weaver has been an active Ordained Elder in the Susquehanna Conference for over twenty years. His most recent appointment was Wesley United Methodist Church in Bloomsburg, PA, where he served for six years. In addition to his pastoral appointments throughout the Conference Pastor Gary served many years on both the Conference Missional Board and the Board of Directors of the Stewardship Foundation. He presently chairs the Conference Sessions Committee with the responsibility of organizing the Annual Conference meeting of the church. Pastor Gary and Cindy have two sons. Isaac, who lives in Tempe Arizona, and Aaron, who lives in Wilmington, Delaware with his wife, Mary, and the Weavers’ granddaughter, Rose Ellen.

Pastor Gary has served for twenty years as a Little League World Series Team Host, welcoming players and families from around the world. He and Cindy both are also active PIAA Swimming Officials.

Gary has a love for God’s people and the mission work of the church, and he has asked that we join him and Cindy in prayer during this season of transition. He is looking forward to our time together as we continue to serve God in ministry and mission! Welcome, Pastor Gary and Cindy!
