From Our Pastor

By What Power?

I am sending this week's "Pastor's Letter" early because First UMC is hosting some significant events this week that I hope you will support and promote.

First, tomorrow (Wednesday) we are beginning a "Lunch and Learn" series at the Uptown Ministry Center. The first in this series addresses the "sandwich generation," those of us who may be raising our children while also caring for aging parents. The presenter for this particular "Lunch and Learn" is Jan Bellard of The Southern Area Agency on Aging. She will speak about aging in place (at home) versus selecting an appropriate care facility. This session is directed to those in their 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's. It is not too late to RSVP; lunch is provided. We will begin at noon.
