Wentzville United Methodist Church

We-Mail from Pastor Mark

Dear Friends, 
 
Have you heard? Did you sign up? It’s almost here! Party in the Parking Lot is next Wednesday, September 9th at 5:30 p.m. We would normally have a Pot Luck Dinner with all our favorite dishes from home but the pandemic has put a stop to that but we can be socially distanced and visit our friends while having a bite to eat. Dukes BBQ has a menu for box dinners available, see the sign-up tab below. Dinners will be delivered hot and ready to eat. Bottled water and soda will be offered by the Men’s Group so bring a lawn chair and card table if you like. No Strings Attached will play music while we dine and visit with our friends in the parking lot at church. 
 
I would like to hear from you via email, letter, or telephone if you have questions or comments on how we are doing as a church staff serving this congregation. The pandemic has stopped many of the activities we normally enjoy. Worship has been offered over the internet along with limited access for personal participation. We cannot open the doors and proclaim, “Come on in everybody” until community spread of the virus is reduced and a vaccine has been delivered to the majority of the community. Until then, we are doing our best to be in touch, keep you informed, and to offer worship with the tools we have. It is a difficult time for all of us. Our goal is to meet you where you are and deliver God’s grace and mercy. 
 
This week we are reading Romans 13:8-14 and deciphering how to love our neighbor with God’s love. Our world is tossing and turning with many influences from natural disasters, political debates, community uproar, and protests; the list goes on and on. Let’s make time for God and take in a quiet moment of worship. It’ll be good for our soul and outlook in life. 
 
See you Sunday on the internet or in person, Pastor Mark
