January 2018

Pastor’s Corner


I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season!  Now, it is January and that time when many of us reassess our busy lives and think about what we want to accomplish or do to balance our lives during the next year. Many of us even come up with new year’s resolutions (that generally last about as long as our attention spans). With all the changes in the world around us it is necessary at times to reassess our lives and make needed adjustments as well. The good news is that even though the world around us is constantly changing, we serve a God who is unchanged – “Unchanged” is the message for January 7th. I look forward to seeing you here.


This New Year – 2018 – brings with it some much needed changes here at Godley UMC as well. In December, we began working with projecting music, worship slides, and videos onto our portable screen during worship. The feedback from you, the congregation, has been overwhelmingly positive. There have been several requests for improvements and the need to place the screen(s) up higher and out of the direct line of the alter area. Your Trustees met on December 21st and have put together a plan to install flat screen tv’s in the overhead above and to the front of each section of pews. They will also place a third screen on the wall behind the pews so those in the choir loft can have the same opportunities for viewing as everyone else. The best news is we have received enough in memorial gifts to fund most of the project.


The second opportunity we have been blessed with is a $5,000.00 grant to do some cosmetic work to the entry way foyer & reception/seekers area of the worship building. The trustees have considered 3 bids to resurface and paint the paneled sections of these areas. This will serve to brighten and refresh these areas. The best news is that the bid that has been accepted falls within the amount of the grant so there will be no out of pocket expense for the church.


This is going to be a great new year here at Godley UMC and I look
forward to continuing service for God and this community.
