E-News from GUMC

Pastor's Note

The school year may be coming to its end, but things are not slowing down much at Goodland UMC. You'll see of lots of things going on in May still at the church. We have a Garage Sale happening on May 5th, our Church Directory photos are getting taken the next week, we will recognize our high school graduates, and Vacation Bible School will be the first week of June. 

It's exciting to see a busy calendar as summer approaches. This is a sign of an active church. Since Easter Sunday, our attendance has been up in worship, as well as the giving to the general budget. We hope this momentum will continue going forward through the summer. We will have Ice Cream sales at the fair, children and youth activities being planned by Pastor Caleb, and a some great fall activities to be planning for. 

As you start to make your summer plans, I hope that continued participation in the life of the church is a part of your plans. The Holy Spirit is on the move in Goodland, and you won't want to miss out on how your life can be changed by following that Spirit.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Zach

New Security Procedures for Church Doors
Recently we initiated new procedures for the church building during the week. Our doors will be locked, even when the office is open. This is for security when staff may be in other parts of the building, away from the main door. To assist you with getting into the building, we have installed a new video doorbell. When you arrive, simply ring the doorbell and staff will let you in the building. This technology allows the staff to be in other parts of the building and still respond to visitors to the office. It even allows us to speak to you through the doorbell if needed. 
Save the Date- Graduate Recognition Sunday
On May 13th, we will recognize our graduating high school seniors. The UMW will be hosting a brunch for them that morning, we will recognize our graduates during worship, and a reception will happen after worship.
