Hi all, In preparation for our lead committee chairs meeting again at the beginning of June to discuss next steps for our congregation, I wanted to send this survey out to you all to receive your thoughts and feelings about returning to church. There are also a few personal check in questions, as well.

You should be able to choose to take the survey anonymously or not.

I'll be the only person that can see the results, but I will be sharing the results regarding the first half of the survey at our next leadership meeting.

The survey will be open from today until the end of the day Sunday.

Click here to take the Check-In Survey

Thanks so much for taking a few moments to help us understand how you and our community is thinking and feeling in this time.

Blessings to you,

PT

Hi friends, Click here for the reading of Exodus 14.

Shirley Ruth likes to choose a theme for the daily sacred music she's been offering.

This week's hymns will all have one thing in common - the writer of the songs: Fanny Crosby. Fanny's story is really amazing. She became blind soon after being born but seemed to never "grumble" about it. In fact she's known for saying, "Do you know that if at birth I had been able to make one petition, it would have been that I was born blind? Because when I get to heaven, the first face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior."

Wow! She penned over 9,000 hymns over her lifetime. We are grateful for her diligence, intelligence and talent to write all of these songs for us to enjoy today! To learn more about Fanny Crosby, click here for an article from Christianity Today all about her!

Click here for I Am Thine, O Lord our first Crosby hymn for the week!

Meet Our Pastor

pastortori



Pastor Tori Heath was born and raised in the Mon-Valley area in Washington County, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Charleroi Area High School and attended Edinboro University. After gaining an English Literature degree from Edinboro in 2014, she attended Asbury Theological Seminary and received a Master of Divinity in 2018. Tori met her husband Dustin during their time at Asbury Seminary where Dustin also received a Master of Divinity and is pursuing a career in chaplaincy and ministering to people who struggle with addiction recovery.

Pastor Tori was commissioned as a Provisional Elder in 2018 in the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference. While Asbury UMC in Waterford is her first church appointment as pastor, Tori has been steeped in the United Methodist Church her whole life. She was baptized as an infant at Trinity UMC in Erie and continued to grow in her faith while being very involved in church life throughout her youth and young adulthood at Grace UMC in Coal Center, Pa. During Tori's time in college, she attended Asbury UMC in Erie. The Erie area holds a special place in her heart.

Pastor Tori is incredibly excited to begin full-time local church ministry as she walks into the calling shes felt since youth. Tori's call to ministry began when she was 13 years old and she began to pursue that call when she went to college. She is so grateful for the cloud of witnesses in the church who have walked with her and encouraged her as she has journeyed through the call to full-time ministry.

Pastor Tori's vision for ministry centers around building teams that work together to bring about spiritual renewal in the local church to impact the surrounding community. She deeply loves seeing lives transformed through the love of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. Tori and Dustin married in January, 2018. Together they like coffee dates, camping, hunting for beach glass, and making each other laugh a lot.
