A message from Pastor Melisa:

Dear siblings in Christ,
How much I do love you,  Connection UMC!  I have memories of our mission trip to Four Corners, our Hickman Elementary School partnership, Selfies with Santa and so much more! I have memories of one-on-one holy conversations, committee meetings that were opportunities for the Holy Spirit to blow a new breeze through us!

Worship is sacred space and time for me, and I have been carried away by the music, by the reading of the Lessons and by being in community with you!

Thank you for the many ways you have loved me and my family. May our Lord richly bless and keep you in righteousness and justice as you live more fully into the mission!

Grace and peace in the Lord, Pastor Melisa

Nancy LaSuer,

Guest Speaker
Laity Sunday


Nancy and her husband Steve have been members at A.P./Connection UMC since 1974 and married 53 years.  You may know them through their family.   Their sons were raised at Andrew Price; son Ryan, wife Rachel, daughters Caroline 17, Madeline 9, and son Aaron, wife Lindsey, children-Foster 6, Myles 2 and Lily 10 months.
During their time at A.P./Connection they have both been active in every aspect of our church and active reaching out to the community in love.  The LaSuers have a passion for helping the impoverished and marginalized communities.  The only thing in which they have not participated is singing with the choir.  We'll have to ask them about that.
Nancy shared, "I love my church family, through trials and joys. I have always believed God has a purpose for His people here at Connection, as seen in the past and as we continue to pray to do His will in the future."
We see love for our Lord in all the LaSuers do and say.  
Please join us at church or online as Nancy shares the words on her heart.
