Pastor's Blog

When was the last time you started something new? I’m not talking about a new Netflix series. I’m talking really entered into something new: a new town, perhaps joined the church, a new class, new employment or friendship? What was that like for you? Excitement, curiosity, danger, elation, nervous… the range of our human emotions seem endless. As a church, we have a new experience welcoming Jordan, Sharon, and Leah Cramer. Perhaps we are excited, nervous, curious or elated. I’m sure the Cramers share your feelings too!

I am offering to you the same words I shared my family when we arrived in July 2017, and the same thing I shared with the Cramers: “Trust in what God has done to bring us together. We have been praying for each other for a while now, good seeds of Grace have been sown and grace will emerge. Remember, we are cheering for them, they are cheering for us. Now go be who God made you to be.”

Jordan is coming to Wesley UMC following over five years of service at Cross Way United Methodist Church as the Worship Leader. Sharon is currently a school teacher with Denton ISD. As the school year wraps up (May), the Cramers will be moving to Greenville. For the first 3 months, Jordan will be serving as the Worship Leader in The Living Room 9:17 and will be here part time. After their relocation in May, Jordan will take on full time duties as the pastor to the Living Room (Jeff’s current role with The Living Room) and our Director of Adult Christian Education.

We will see you Sunday. As for how I’m feeling, I’m excited!

In Christ,
