Message from the Pastor

As we enter the month of May there is a tremendous amount of uncertainty in our world due to the coronavirus. COVID-19 has caused fear and doubt to grasp our hearts as we stay in our homes and away from friends and relatives. We ask ourselves when will all this uncertainty end.

The Apostle Paul tells God's people not to lose heart when the troubles of this world dim our outlook on the future. (II Corinthians:16-18). When a health crisis or some other difficult situation enters our lives,  we need to shift the focus from the crisis to the God who lives, we need to shift our focus from the crisis to the God who is in control of our world and our lives. God will provide us what we need to survive and thrive through whatever problem is confronting us this day. 

Paul continues saying whatever issue is causing us to lose hope is only a temporary situation. All of us need to change our focus and perspective from the temporary to the eternal. The hope we have in Jesus who, though, unseen, is eternal.  We need to concentrate on the teachings of Jesus which tell us that God will not forsake us no matter how negative the temporary crisis appears in your life and my life.

Our hope lies in the Risen Christ who will not fail us. Let us center our lives around hope in Christ which will lead us to victory over all that confronting us today. 

May God richly bless you. 

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Herb Williams

Welcome, and thank you for visiting White Memorial United Methodist Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available.

We invite you to come worship with us. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth.

We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen with open minds,, and with our hearts to love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
