January Scripture Readings
"Methodism has its roots in eighteenth century Anglicanism. Its founder was a Church of England minister, John Wesley (1703-1791) who sought to challenge the religious assumptions of the day. During a period of time in Oxford, he and others met regularly for Bible study and prayer, to receive communion and do acts of charity. They became known as "The Holy Club" or "Methodists" because of the methodical way in which they carried out their Christian faith. John Wesley later used the term "Methodist" himself to mean the methodical pursuit of biblical holiness." www.thisischurch.com

Effective January 1st, 2018, the Poolville United Methodist has a new preacher, Reverend Neil Norman, appointed by the District Conference. It will very likely take him a few weeks to settle-in, so please call the church if you are needing something. Church services will continue to be held on Sunday mornings at 9:30.
We recognize that our loving God has been with us in each of these special moments. But we also know that this same God of grace will go with us into the future, calling us to follow Him with a sense of expectation and anticipation. As we reflect upon the words of the scriptures and remember these great men and women of the faith, we have promise that God is again ready to do a great thing in our midst. All that we have to do is make ourselves available and prepare to witness His presence in amazing ways as this great church walks boldly into the future.
Yes, it is a joy and a blessing to be the pastor of Poolville UMC and walk hand in hand with you as we serve the resurrected and present Christ.
What a joy and blessing it is to serve as the pastor of Poolville United Methodist Church. Consider the fact that this community of faith has been in service to Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God for 133 years! Think if you will how many individuals have been baptized as disciples of Christ at this church. Consider, if you will, how many couples have been united in Christian marriage at the altar of this church. Last, how many individuals have been received into the Church triumphant as they were memorialized within the walls of this church. This is why I say what a privilege it is to stand on this Holy Ground.
