“Brighten the corner where you are….”

It does not seem possible that we are now in June of 2021. In June of last year, Crystal Lake opened up for worship and said goodbye to Pastor Katie and her family. Then in July, I began serving as your pastor. Since then, while masked and distancing, we have had in-person worship services and taped services on YouTube with our band and Tim Ogden on the piano. The Adult Sunday School has met regularly, the CLUMC Kids, Youth and Adults have been meeting on Wednesday nights. The Thrift Shop has been open on Saturdays.

And more…We have continued in the activities of this congregation with only one episode of COVID and no super spreader events because of the caution and care of our members. In addition, the financial contributions have continued to fill our budgeted needs.

As we continue to welcome people back to worship and to fellowship, we are celebrating the continued life in this congregation. I am asking questions that I would like you to think about: “Why do I come to church?” “How can we witness to the presence of God in our lives and in this congregation?” “What does it mean that Crystal Lake UMC is in this community?” “What would I have to personally sacrifice to be part of such a congregation?” Let us meditate on, pray and discuss these questions in the coming year.

As a part of discerning God’s will and asking the above questions, Meghan Burrell is facilitating a study by Henry Blackaby called “Experiencing God.” The study will begin on Wednesday, June 6th at 6pm in the overflow room and will continue through September. The Youth will be joining the Adults for this study. Please leave a message with Tim or me if you will be joining us.

For the month of June, we will be studying several Psalms. Several of our gifted lay speakers will be preaching. Please be praying for the preachers and meditate on these Psalms.
June 6th. Psalm 1. Pastor Terry
June 13th. Psalm 100. Terry Ramsey
June 20th. Psalm 30. Zachary Marsh
June 27th. Psalm 23. Tim Ogden

I am looking forward to a Spirit-filled year of worship, service, study, and joy.

Blessings,

Pastor Terry Knight
