Pastor’s Announcement March 29th

My dear Glenelg UMC family,
I write to you today with that unique blend of deep sorrow and yet joyful anticipation of opportunity and new days ahead that often accompanies times of transition. On July 1, I will begin a new season of ministry as the associate pastor of First UMC of Northville, Michigan. My last Sunday in worship with you will be June 3rd. From there, I will work to accomplish a move to a new state, change my license plates (pray that Michigan’s DMV is easier and kinder), find a new grocery store and get John Wesley and Tay settled into a new environment.

These times of pastoral transition are deeply sorrowful and come with some degree of “what will happen next.” Because of this challenging time of pandemic, I know the timing of this announcement is even more difficult to receive. I also know there is no “good or easy” time to part ways with those you love, as I have come to love you.

In spite of the inability to be together face to face, we will find times and ways to process through our final months together and to pray for God’s will to continue to be deeply found at GUMC. You are a congregation to whom much has been given and entrusted. May you continue to live into that with strength and courage, and a love for all people who find their way to you.
Yours for the journey,
Pastor Alice

2020 Easter Dedications

Even though we are separated physically, we can still feel together the spirit of Lent and the Easter season. Many around us are suffering financially due to the pandemic we face, so the need for our food pantry is stronger than ever. To that end, we are continuing our tradition of Easter dedications that are used to support the food pantry and those it serves with Walmart gift cards. Each dedication (gift card) is $10.
You have two options for transmitting the form and the money:
  1. Fill in the dedication form at the above link, including those you are honoring, and separately mail check made out to “GUMC” by April 4th, to Craig Lee at 3308 Strabane Dr., Glenelg 21737.  This option is preferred so we have time to get the list of those you are honoring into the Easter bulletin. 
  2. Print out the form 2020 Easter Dedications and mail it with your check payable to “GUMC” by April 4th to Craig Lee at the address above.
