Wishing You a Very Happy New Year
Dear Beloved Community,
As we begin 2021, we are reminded - that while we use a date on the calendar to declare a New Year - God is always creating and re-creating in us a new thing. My prayer is that we continue with Grace and in Love to serve with our community and find ways to connect, even while physically apart.
2020 has certainly been a year like no other, at least in my lifetime. Yet, in spite of our circumstances, Belmont Heights UMC has boldly declared that God is doing a new thing right here at 3rd and Termino. I am grateful to serve this amazing church and her people. My family and I look forward to continuing in service with you all into the New Year.

Join us as we read through the Bible this year. We can take opportunities at Coffee With The Pastor and other times to discuss what we have been reading. It will be easy to catch up and should only take 10 minutes or so a day.

Look for special messages, prompts, and things to look for as we look at our Holy Scriptures fresh and in context.
I look forward to the discussions!
