We had a track-tabulous VBS Kickoff event on Sunday! Here’s a look at some of the fun that was had.
Dear Hyde Park Family,
It is with a lot of love and gratitude that I share that God has called me to a new congregation in the Florida Conference. I will be starting at First United Methodist Church of Lakeland as their new Director of Youth Ministries on July 4, 2021. My last day at Hyde Park will be on Thursday, July 1, 2021.
It was at the end of May that God placed on my heart that he wanted to send me specifically to this congregation. I have been so blessed by Hyde Park and so many of you have not only become my friends but truly my family. God called me to Hyde Park in 2010, and I knew that I would be here for a long time walking, with so many of you through this journey of faith. Summarizing eleven years of ministry is so hard, but here is a snippet of our time together:
You’ve made this woman feel very blessed to walk alongside your families during some difficult and critical stages of your teen’s lives. You’ve walked with me during celebrations and sadness along my journey too. This is what has sealed our bond together, and you will always have a friend and sister in Christ in me. I will be cheering your new Director of Youth Ministries when they are selected, and will be continuing to pray for your families, the youth program and Hyde Park United Methodist Church. I would really cherish your prayers for me as I transition to this new congregation and ministry at First Lakeland too.
There were so many photos during our eleven years together and it was hard for me to choose just a few. I selected 10 photos, not one for every year, however these represent my time here at Hyde Park. Enjoy going down memory lane with me and thank you again for loving and supporting me along the way.
