May 19-A Special Sunday

Celebrating PAXTON UMC’s Past, Present, and Future

Blessings rained down on us as we celebrated
  • the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost,
  • the 50th anniversary of our church building, and
  • the opportunities we have to share God’s love in coming days and years.
We were joined by UPASANA, the Nepali community church congregation, who have begun using our building for Nepali-language worship services. It was a joy to worship together and get to know each other better!

Opportunities to Give and to Serve:

* The Susquehanna Conference of the UMC is collecting new hand towels to be used in UMCOR health kits. Please bring to church by Sunday, May 26 so they can be delivered during annual conference, May 30.

* A group from Paxton will prepare a meal at the Ronald McDonald House (located near the Hershey Med Center) on July 7.

* Paxton will be hosting a meal-packing event for Rise Against Hunger on September 28, 10am-noon

I am no longer my own, but thine. 
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. 
Put me to doing, put me to suffering. 
Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. 
Let me be full, let me be empty. 
Let me have all things, let me have nothing. 
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. 
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
– The Wesley Covenant Prayer
