Happy September!


Seems this time of year getting up is harder than earlier in the summer like in June or July. Then, when I got up the sun would be just breaking through the trees. Our animal friends would be stirring getting ready for their daily search for food and adventure around the neighborhood. The light would come in streaks across the lawns, and flowers would begin to show their colors for all to see.


September lights up later. The sun doesn’t streak through the trees as quickly and the summer seems to be getting tired. Yesterday during the thunderstorm, I noticed leaves beginning to fall. Temperatures are starting to get comfortable again and the squirrels and chipmunks are fattening up for the winter nap.


Around the church things are happening too. Beginning on September 8th new Bible studies will begin. As we rally around our church, new support groups will be coming into our building. NAMI will hold a support group on Tuesdays, along with our old friends GA (Gamblers Anonymous) and NA. Gam-Anon (families of GA support group) have been meeting here most of the summer and will continue through the near future.


We also wish to welcome the Butler Philharmonic Choir.


There is more exciting news coming in October. First UMC is definitely on the move.


See you in church,

Pastor Mark
