District Superintendent Weekly Update

May 17, 2018

Shenandoah Family and Friends,

I like what the Psalmist said when he wrote, “For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even to the end.” Psalm 48:14 ___ What a MIGHTY God we serve!!

All yearend reports are now due. 😊 If the reports that you’re responsible for are not in please get them to us by Monday. For those who had everything on time, THANK YOU!!! We have to have your info before we can get ready for district conference. By the way, I’ll expect to see your smiling faces on July 9 & 10 at Roanoke, Parkway. I hope that you will also make plans to be at the Sunday night rally on the 8th. District Missions (Kelly Schumann) will be hosting their annual breakfast and information “get together” at 7:00 on Monday morning (9th). As we say in the south, Y’all Come!!! 😊

The last couple weeks for me have been active for sure; I’m confident that it’s been the same for you as well. I’ve been as far east as Fredericksburg, VA, Stuart, VA to the south and Parkersburg, WV to the north. Becky and I enjoyed a great visit to FredWes (Rev. Brad Snyder) recently where we worshipped with fellow Wesleyans and celebrated the ministry of the Good News Club. FredWes has the privilege of ministering to public school children where several have come to faith in Jesus. COME ON SOMEBODY!!!!! Brother Brad has a great shepherd’s heart and is leading his flock into greener pastures. ___ I represented the district at the funeral service of the Rev. Curtis Hall. I did not know Pastor Hall at all, to be honest, but I enjoyed learning about him at the memorial gathering. Our own colleague Pastor Gary Combs (Minnies Chapel Wesleyan) led the service and did a marvelous job.

Allow me to continue to keep Children’s Camp before you. June 17 -22 is just a month away!!! Pastor Dominic and his team are planning to host children (3rd grade through 6th) from VA and WV; I know the kids will have a great time. Please promote the camp for us; we really need your help!! If you have questions please email Pastor Dominic at dalvey17@gmail.com; campers may register by going to our district website. Thanks a bunch!! 😊

If you serve a Developing Church please remember that the DBA has the responsibility to adopt the local church budget. As you well know it’s that time of the year…. Also, any new members that you want to receive into the church the DBA must approve those also. The district truly wants to see our churches develop; let us help you.
How was Mother’s Day at your church? I would love to hear stories of spiritual impact. I did hear that Emmanuel Wes (Rev. Steve O’Dell) had a very nice day last Sunday. Paden City Wesleyan (Pastor Mark Tennant) also had a special morning; Mark is hitting the ball out of the park!! ___ I love our district!!!!!!

This Week’s Prayer Concerns:
1. Rev. David Henry – was back in the hospital last week. The physical battle continues…..
2.  Rev. Brian Cook – is recovering nicely from surgery; he’ll be running the mile soon!! 😊
3.  The Curtis Hall Family – as they adjust to a new normal
4.  Rev. Marty Furrow – will be having a knee replacement in June.
5.  Jonny Blatt – is serving in El Salvador; he’s one of our own kids.
6.  Rev. Chris Shinn – is very ill right now….
7.  Me – I need and desire God’s help.

Have a wonderful weekend and Lord’s Day on Sunday.

Pastor Greg
