United Methodist Church
Greetings Howard Flock and Friends:
I am pleased to be joining you; let me give you a bit of an introduction. I was ordained in 1988 in the Western Pa. conference as a probationary deacon, and then ordained elder here in West Ohio in 1991. Other than my student years in Dayton and Cincinnati I have served my ministry up to this point in southeastern Ohio. (Roseville, Johnstown, Crooksville and Zanesville.) From 2000-2006 I worked as the Newark District Local Church Consultant, functioning much like the DS Assistant does today.
Ministry has always been a joy for me. God has led me to places I never expected to go, and made my heart full because of the people and experiences in those places.
I have a great passion for connecting with those who are searching and struggling and sharing God's love with them. True peace only comes to us when we are deeply rooted in Christ. Once we know that peace, we have the opportunity to live into the gifts God has given us, and network those gifts with the gifts of others in order to grow God's Kingdom.
I look forward to this new chapter in life with you. I'm sure we will learn to love one another and have fun being in ministry together. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have a need, or if you have some extra time on your hands and would like for us to get better acquainted.
Pastor Gay Blau
We hope you come and be involved in our church. Our main gatherings are Sunday mornings at 9:00AM. Please come as you are, and dress how you would during the week. Come early and enjoy some coffee and snacks. After our worship service, we do have a couple of Sunday School Classes that are very informal. You can come be part of any of our ministries - Children, Teens, Adults, Outreach, and Recovery. You can volunteer at any of our activities and minstries as well. We would love for you to join us!
