A Note From the Pastor
Rev. Barbara Fay
Thank you each and every one.
Thank you for being such awesome servants of Christ together.
Thank you for giving way beyond "duty" to "servanthood" in Christ.
Thank you for your tireless hours and for your generous faithful financial support.
Thank you for the faith you have placed in your pastor's call and leadership. She, who loves you and the Lord so much. Who loves her family passionately and has sought a balance that keeps our churches moving forward and yet, is faithful to her call as wife, mother and grandmother too.
Thank you for trusting me, even when you have your doubts.
Thank you for hanging in there with the changes and "updates," renovations and "improvements," and expansions.
Thank you for looking with me beyond what has been, seeing what is now and looking to what can be, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you for daring to dream with me and grabbing the gift that is now; enabling us to reach out in the name of Jesus.
Thank you for your grace and faith and courage and grace and enthusiasm and oh yes…grace.
I am so thankful God called me to the Frankfort and Elberta United Methodist Churches in 2010. We have been through so much together, with more to come. God continues to lead each church, each of you uniquely gifted and called. And God continues to lead and give vision to what is next.
Thank you is not enough. But words will have to do. I pray my actions and faithful leadership will continue to show you all my passion, my appreciation and my excitement for what God has next for us all.
Blessings and peace, Pastor Barb
