Seasonal Offering for Haven of Hope and Blue Monarch Ministry

We are blessed to have not one, but two great ministries to women and families in need in our area.  The Haven of Hope provides shelter to abused women and their families, and the Blue Monarch does this, as well as a course of life-improvement services to help women get back on their feet.  On Sunday, August 30, we will be showing a video from Blue Monarch that features some of the women who are, or have been, residents.  Anne Lorenz, the mission coordinator, will speak to the goals of the offering.

Fitting the Pastor to the Mission

We have a thing called a Pastor Parish Relations Committee.  This is a standing committee in United Methodist churches that functions to deal with matters concerning the relationship of pastor and staff with congregations, what in United Methodist parlance are called "charges".  Bishops and District Superintendents depend on these committees to monitor the health of the relationship between appointed ministers and the congregations they are serving.  In a healthy congregation this group serves as a forum for
