Words from Our Pastor, Reverend Gary Wedgewood
For those of you who may not have heard, the following announcement was made during worship on April 10th by the SPR committee Chair:
Bishop Bill McAlilly and the Nashville Area Cabinet of the Tennessee/Memphis Conferences, in session this week, worked prayerfully together to make missional appointments to every church in our Annual Conference. As Chairperson of the Pastor Parish Relations Committee, I give thanks for the ministry of our pastor, Gary Wedgewood, who has been a servant leader among us. As he moves to his new appointment, we will continue to pray for him. Our church will receive Tom Spellings as our new pastor. He will lead us in worship for the first time on Sunday, July 10. Let us pray now and through these coming weeks for this transition in our church.
Lord Jesus Christ, our Living Savior, we give you thanks for our church. It is a gift of grace to us. We are deeply grateful for the leadership of Gary Wedgewood who has served us as pastor, teacher, leader and friend in Christ. May your grace be upon him and his family in the spiritual adventure that lies ahead. As Tom Spellings comes to be our next pastor, we pray for him. May your grace abound in his life, giving peace and joy and confidence in this new beginning. Open our hearts and minds to receive the gifts you have for us in these days as we give thanks for what has been and anticipate what will be. Our life is in you, O God, and through the Holy Spirit we pray this day. Amen.
I have felt that God’s hand has worked throughout the process leading to my new appointment. We will miss our friends here in Mt. Pleasant. We look forward to making new friends in Murfreesboro. My hope and prayer is that Mt. Pleasant First UMC will continue the many wonderful ministries you now have and take this opportunity to utilize the spiritual gifts of your new pastor to develop new ministries and to develop in new ways as a church in the years ahead. After June 28th you should contact your new pastor, Tom Spellings, about funerals, weddings, baptisms, etc.. He will initiate contact with me about participating in such pastoral functions after that date. God bless you all.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the church between
7:30 & 11:30am M-F at 931-379-3520.
Reverend Gary Wedgewood

From the Desk of the DCE:
Thanks to Tricia and George for stepping up and facilitating the new “COVANANT” class. They have eleven Disciples’ in that class and I have heard that it is a very interesting study with a lot of class participation. The congregation may want to look into the next eight weeks study that will start soon. We’ll announce it in the bulletin.
Also, Thanks to Janice and Marvin for continuing with the Disciple IV study. They also have some devoted Disciples in their group also.
Jesus in the Gospels is also going strong. We find some very interesting comparisons to New Testament and Old Testament scripture.
We are looking forward to our Advent study this year. We are going into a study by a pastor at Lake Magdalene Church in Tampa, Florida. He has giving this study as a donation to God and His works in Mt. Pleasant UMC.
If you aren’t attending Sunday school, you are missing some very interesting study material. Let me take this opportunity to invite you to one of our classes. We are studying the NIV bible series at the present time in the Book of Acts. The Ladies have started a Ladies study and we have studies for all other age groups. We have a nursery open for Sunday school and church services.

O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.
For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?
