Pardon our Pause

Centreville UMC is excited for Pastors Marci Huntsman and Thomas James. Both pastors will be taking new appointments in the Virginia Conference beginning July 1.

Rev. Marci Huntsman will be moving to the Lynchburg area and will be the lead pastor at the West Campbell Charge: Lambs United Methodist Church and Evington United Methodist Church.

Rev. Thomas G. James will be staying in Northern Virginia, becoming the new lead pastor at Washington Street UMC in Old Town Alexandria.

Coming to Centreville UMC as the Minister of Congregational Care and leading the 11:02 Connections Service will be Rev. Kevin Havens. Rev. Haden will be coming to CUMC from across I-66, where he currently serves at Pender UMC.

CUMC is seeking to hire a new Director of Serve Ministries, and is taking applications through Sunday, June 21. Anyone wishing to apply can learn more about the position by downloading the JOB DESCRIPTION and should fill out a CUMC Employment Application.

With this transitional time upon the church, the CUMCConnect blog will be taking a hiatus. As July arrives and the pastoral moves have been made, it will be our goal to refocus our energy in updating CUMCConnect. Please keep CUMC, the West Campbell Charge, Washington Street UMC, and Pender UMC in your prayers as each church undergoes these pastoral transitions. May God’s grace, peace, and guidance lead each in this new season.

Read Acts 3:1-10

In our study of the Apostles’ Creed, we jump ahead today, this Pentecost Sunday, from the first statement to the third, “I believe in the Holy Spirit.”

Last Sunday we talked about what it means to believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. We talked about God’s creative power and the fact that God desires a relationship with each of us. That relationship is made possible through his Son, Jesus Christ, and is sustained through the power of the Holy Spirit. Read more…
