Wesleyan’s Covenant Prayer
said it all: We are no longer our
own, but we belong to God, when
we surrender everything to him.
Wesley say: Let me be employed
by thee or laid aside for thee. We
do what God calls us to do, and
sometime we rest for awhile, as
he lays us aside for awhile.
The last 15 weeks have been an
adventure, as Pastor Mike was
laid aside for a while,
and I was called to be the interim
pastor for University United
Methodist Church.

Thank you for your support in
this ministry. It was a joy to be
able to fill in for Pastor Mike. But
it is a Greater Joy to have Pastor
Mike back in the pulpit! If for
some reason you are unable to
attend the one Sunday Service at
9:30 a.m., while Pastor Mike is
getting his strength back,
remember you can still worship on
Saturday Night at 5:00 p.m., with
the Church for all People or on
Wednesday Evening at 5:30 p.
m., at the
Candle light prayer service.
When a pastor retires, he or she
has to pick a charge conference,
and I chose University.

As Charge
Conference comes around
December 2nd, like the rest of
you I will be filling out my report of
the ministries I
have done for University United
Methodist Church.
I hope that you will find your
place in the Body of Christ here
at University UMC. But you still
to figure out your STRIDE. What
Spiritual Gifts has God given
you? What are your Talents?
Resources do you have that you
can share with the Church? What
is your Individuality? What is your
Dream or Passion? What
Experiences in life can you share
with others? These things will
help you find your
ministry and place in the Body of
Christ. If you need a copy of
STRIDE materials that were
handed out at
church the last 5 weeks, please
contact the church office.

Greetings in the Name of Christ!

It’s good to be back! After being gone for almost four months on
short term disability leave due to knee replacement surgery and
thyroid cancer, it’s time for a celebration! Next Sunday, September
28th at 9:30 a.m., we will celebrate a homecoming with our church
family and friends. It is a special time for these reasons and so many
others:   Emmy Award winner, and former UUMC Choir Director Bryan
Pinkall will come home to sing for and with us; Jordan Smith, former
UUMC organist and Music Director will come home, to play and help
lead us in worship; We will have one grand and glorious homecoming
service at 9:30 a.m.;  I will come home to preach and lead worship for
the first time in four months; and I will begin my ninth year here at
UUMC, becoming the longest serving pastor in University United
Methodist Church’s 105 year old history. We will celebrate with an All
Church Luncheon at 11:00 a.m. in the Forum.

The following Sunday, October 5th will be World Communion
Sunday. I hope you will attend with your family and friends at this
combined 9:30 a.m. service. It will be a very special service, as we
commune with each other and Christians around the globe. United
Methodists believe in an ‘open communion table’, meaning that all
are invited to share in Christ’s Holy meal. No one will be denied, so
please be generous in your invitation to bring others to the table of

Finally, I’m so very grateful to each of you for all of the prayers,
cards, and well-wishes during my time of disability and
convalescence. I’m grateful also for the University UMC staff and
especially to Pastor Ralph who stepped in to do a fantastic job of
making sure the worship services and pastoral needs of the church
were met in my absence. I’m grateful also for the members of the
church who stepped up and provided amazing leadership. I’m
grateful for the Salina District Superintendents who saw our situation
and provided this church with the program that covered Pastor Ralph’
s compensation while I was on short term disability.

As I consider what it means to be back as your pastor, I’m
overwhelmed and humbled by the trust you have put in me and my
ministry here. I pray each day that I might be blessed to be a
blessing to you as your pastor and look forward sharing the future
that God has prepared for us.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Mike
