Message from the Pastor

The Koh-i-noon diamond is among the most spectacular in the world. Queen Victoria received it as a gift from a maharajah when he was a lad. later as a grown man this maharajah visited Queen Victoria again. He requested that the stone be brought from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace. The maharajah took the diamond and knelling before the Queen, gave it back to her, saying "Your Majesty, I gave you this jewel when I was a child, too young to know what I was doing. I want to give it to you again in the fullness of my strength, with all of my heart and affection, and gratitude, now and forever, fully realizing all that I do."

A believers in Jesus Christ, we need to reiterate those words offering again our lives to Jesus Christ. "I want to give you back my life, Lord Jesus, that I gave you several years ago. I want to give it again to you with gratitude, fully cognizant of all that I am doing."  Illustrations Unlimited, I. James. S. Hewitt (Tyndale Publishers, Wheaton, Ill. 1988, pg 240.

I believe we should center our our life and our giving around being a child of God. No matter how difficult and unsettling life may be, we know Jesus walks with us if we have knowingly given our life to the Lord. We made a living by what we get out of life, but we make a life our of what we give. And we find joy in life when our giving is centered around our Lord and Savior.

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Herb Williams

Neither rain, nor heat, nor a virus could deter the volunteers of Dale's Place from carrying out their duties during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Members of White Memorial UMC work alongside others in their masks and gloves to assure that clients receive their food on a monthly basis. The staff has had to make changes to staffing and the days and hours of service, but the services have been ongoing during the months of the pandemic.


Members of White Memorial and other local churches support the local Food Pantry "Dale's Place"  In recent bad weather volunteers still come to help out.  A great partnership to help feed
the hungry in our Community.
