Some Thoughts from Pastor Jane
This Sunday evening, our Annual Conference meeting begins with an opening worship service at 7 p.m. at
White's Chapel United Methodist Church in Southlake, Texas. The entire Conference will be held there at White's
Chapel through Tuesday afternoon of this week.
Every Conference in United Methodism holds such an annual meeting for a designated time of worship, study,
fellowship, the receiving of reports, and voting on resolutions offered by various boards and committees. Those in
attendance at Annual Conferences include all the clergy within that Conference and elected lay delegates from each
Church. For our Conference, I will attend as clergy representing our Church. Our lay delegates are Nancy Moore and
Patrick Turkett.
Anyone can go to Annual Conference and attend all of the business sessions, the teaching sessions, and the
worship services. Only elected delegates are allowed to vote, however. If you have never been to Annual Conference, I
want to encourage you to attend at least once. Next year's Annual Conference for 2016, is scheduled to be here in
Waco at our Convention Center. It will take place once again in early June. We will be selecting our lay delegates for
the 2016 Annual Conference this Fall at the time of our Charge Conference. If you are interested in attending next
June, please do let me know.
We could not have had a better day for our third annual fish fry - beautiful weather and cool temperatures. We
owe a HUGE thanks to Mike and Donna Herbert for providing the fish and preparing it for us all to enjoy. We also
owe a HUGE thanks to Nelda Wheeler for her untiring efforts in heading up the kitchen work. To all who helped
outside, who helped set up, and who helped clean up - we are very grateful. I already cannot wait for next year's fish
The Summer is traditionally a time for vacations. If you and your family will be traveling during this Summer,
I pray for your safety. I would also ask that if you attend Church while out of town (and I hope you will be faithful in
your worship attendance no matter where you are), please bring a worship guide back with you. And, if you will be
entertaining out of town guests this Summer, I hope you will bring them with you to our worship services.
We continue to see new faces in our services regularly. The greeting time in our worship services are
intentionally designed to encourage everyone to take note of individuals who might be new to our Church. I trust that
all will feel the warmth and love of China Spring UMC as soon as they enter our Sanctuary.
I am happy to see you in worship today and I pray that you will know of God's love for you as we sing, pray,
and hear God's holy word.
