September 2017

Pastor’s Corner


          It’s September and time marches on.

       September is the month of new beginnings. The kids are back in school with all the activities a new year brings – sports, band, homework, meeting new friends and becoming reacquainted with old friends. There is a sense of anticipation in the air as the days become shorter and the nights longer and the summer heat slowly begins to give way to Fall. September is also a month of preparation as we get ready for all the new activities that come with a new season of change.

         I am excited for all the new opportunities God has provided for us here at Godley UMC as we move into September. We get to start with the advancement of our Youth Sunday School classes on September 3rd, presenting new Bibles to our 3rd – 5th graders, beginning a new daily devotional “Ignition Point”, starting a new sermon series “Discipleship – What it Means for Us”, and welcoming new members into our Church Family. Then on September 6th
we start a whole new worship community with our “Wednesday Night Live” which begins at 6pm with youth Bible study and adult choir, and continues at 7pm with adult Bible study and youth choir. We are also exploring the possibility for mission projects and other activities during our Wednesday night worship as well. Of course, we also have our new name tag board which holds the name tags for all our members. Make sure you put yours on when you come into worship and drop it off in one of the baskets as you depart. Also, be on the lookout for subtle changes to our campus and facilities and let us know what you think.


          God is moving in amazing ways here at Godley UMC so invite your friends to come and see and become a part of what the Holy Spirit has in store for each of us. We have so much to be thankful for so let us all give praise to God and share the Good News with everyone we meet.

          We also need to continue in prayer for our brothers and sisters on the coast who are devastated by the flooding. Our mission outreach for September is to support those in need through our gifts and prayers. United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is an amazing blessing of the United Methodist Church with 100% of your gift going directly to those in need. When you give make your checks out to Godley UMC and put Flooding Relief in the note section and we will make sure it goes to those in need.

In Christ’s Love,

Pastor Randy Tucker
