FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR

Rev. Cameron Miller – Dorchester United Methodist Church/Friend United Methodist Church


Greetings Friend and Dorchester!
My name is Cameron Miller, and I am so excited to be your new pastor! I have had the opportunity to chat with Pastor April a couple of times and meet a handful of you all at different times. All of these interactions have made me more excited to join your communities.
My wife, Karissa, is also a United Methodist pastor and will be serving in Geneva, NE. We were both born and raised in Nebraska, so we are thrilled to get back home!
I have been praying and reflecting a lot about this transition. I know that change is hard and there are a lot of unknowns that come with change, but I know that the Lord is with us. My hope for these first few months is to really just get to know you all. To know our members and to know the communities. After I arrive, I will be working on getting some times set up for people to stop by and chat, as well as some more formal introduction opportunities. I am looking forward to seeing and hearing how God is at work in each of you and the communities of Friend and Dorchester and to continue to move in the direction God is calling us.
I will finish with these words from Philippians 4:4-7. This is a passage that gives me hope as we enter into this new relationship. It is a prayer and a hope I share with you. My prayer is that as people of Christ, we can cast our fears and anxieties on God, so that we can let our gentleness and love be known to everyone!
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Cameron Miller
