Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I hope this letter finds you well, filled with faith, renewed hope and anxious to serve our Lord.  I have great news to share with you.

I’m writing today to announce our next Gathering scheduled for Monday, June 28th at Burnet FUMC.  This will be a complete Gathering with a potluck dinner at 6:00 p.m. and a service at 7:00 p.m.  We will observe some protocols as a courtesy to those who want to attend but may not be ready for physical contact.  Details will be worked out and shared with you in a future letter.

For those of you who are uncertain about attending in person, we will be “Livestreaming” our Gathering Service “Live” via Facebook.   To view the Service online, click on this link:

In the meantime, know that we want to include your prayer concerns as part of the service whether you attend or participate online.  Please forward your concerns to Tom Ruiz at the email address listed below so we can announce them during the service.


We look forward to gathering with you to celebrate the passion and resurrection of Our Lord. As ever, I remain your humble servant.  De Colores!
