March 23. Daily Update from Pastor Sara.

“And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b)

Good Morning Friends and Members of First United Methodist Church,

At the end of Matthew’s gospel, Jesus’ reminds his disciples: “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” 

Jesus says this to his disciples after his resurrection as he is getting ready to ascend to heaven to be with God the Father. Jesus knows that this will be hard for his disciples who have gotten used to seeing Jesus face to face every day. In challenging times, it can be hard that we don’t see Jesus face to face. Friends as we live through this uncertain time, may we remember that Jesus’ words are for us too. That Jesus is with us always, no matter what may come.

Thank you for all who joined us this weekend for worship online. As some of you know, we had some issues with the livestream from Facebook on Sunday morning. It appears that this was a Facebook issue since other churches were having similar problems. If you missed the worship service this weekend, I would encourage you to watch the worship services on our website at: https://watertownfirst.church/watch. We will continue to worship ONLINE ONLY this coming weekend on Saturday, March 28th at 5pm and Sunday, March 29th at 10am.

For those of you who are keeping up with news regarding the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, the General Conference has been postponed. They have not set a new date for holding the conference. If you would like more information about General Conference, please follow this link: https://www.dakotasumc.org/news/general-conference-to-be-postponed.

Friends as we enter into a new week, please take time to stay connected to our God and to one another. May we hold fast to Jesus’ comforting words: “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Sara
