Dear Friends in Christ,
My family and I are so excited to be in Scottsville! Both Scottsville and Mount Zion UMCs have been extremely welcoming, and we are enjoying meeting everybody.
The town of Scottsville itself is really neat. The Fourth of July parade was so much fun, and then we ate our way through the Farmer’s Market. The kids have had fun playing on the playgrounds in Scottsville and Esmont and going to library. We know that we will love living here!
I thought that to kick things off on this blog, I’d share a little about myself.
My Church: My home church is Luray United Methodist Church in Luray, VA. I’ve also either attended or worked at several other churches – Williamsburg UMC, Pyatigorsk UMC, Bethesda UMC, Wesley UMC in Vienna, and Del Ray UMC. I then served Page UMC for 8 years as their pastor. I feel blessed I now get to add 2 more churches to this list!
My Favorite Hymn: I have too many favorites to choose from! A few that I love are It Is Well, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing, Hymn of Promise, Pass It On, Stand By Me, As the Deer, and Trading My Sorrows.
My Favorite Scripture Verse: John 13:34-35 – I had this verse shown when I was ordained.
I will share more in future posts. For now, may the peace of Christ fill you and sustain you.
