Today was “Announcement Sunday” in the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. It was announced in our worship service at Asbury UMC, Orange Park, that we will be moving at the end of June to First United Methodist Church of Lake City, Florida, about an hour due east of here. The Rev. Chris Sanders and his wife, Rev. Charissa Sanders, an Ordained Deacon, will be coming here from John Wesley UMC in Tallahassee. Although moving is always hard, and we will be leaving dear friends in a loving and warm congregation, we know that the Lord will be with us and with Asbury as we take this next step in our journey. We look forward to getting to know our new church and community, and discovering with them what God has in store in the months and years ahead.
