Pastor Paul's Paragraphs - April 2016

I am going to give you one of my secrets. It is one of those things that have touched me every time I have done it. Maybe today is one of those times that you have tried everything you know of to fix your problems, and it seems like nothing has worked.

Someone else gave this to me, and I am asking you to pass it on to someone else. Ready?
Say the Lord's Prayer that Jesus taught the disciples to pray. Yes, I know we say it every Sunday in the Methodist church. But this time say the Lord's Prayer, and take five minutes to say it by pausing after each phrase. And take each phrase into your heart and wrap your soul around it.

On May 6th and 7th our Early Response Team (ERT) assisted the members of Cold Spring UMC in cleaning up debris. Read more.....

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your field;
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
