THE PATHFINDER
Little Valley United Methodist Church109 Court Street, PO Box 221Little Valley, NY 14755(716) 938-6150 Joseph Pascoe, PastorOffice Hours: Monday – Friday 9:00-12:00Monthly NewsletterMarch 2012
Greetings in Jesus name,Over the last weekend I had the privilege to witness first hand, the hand of God fall down on70 youth at a Call of Duty conference. The word of God was boldly proclaimed and life applicationswere given to these young people. At the conclusion of this event the Spirit of the most high Godcame down and rocked these young peoples lives forever. God called them out of there comfort zoneand to a place of reconciliation and forgiveness. The altar was littered with debris from their past andthe Spirit of God came and washed it clean. They were confessing their sins before God and to man, if need be, so that He could use them to be a light burning bright in a dark world at times.These teenagers are charged up and ready to serve Jesus Christ with reckless abandonment.They are ready to take a stand for the gospel no matter what the cost. They have been given theirpersonal "Call of Duty" and each and every one of them was willing to take their assignment to theschools, the locker rooms, and for some their homes. I don't want to believe it, but unfortunately I knowthe sad reality that some of them are going to be the light of Christ in their home front. After lastweekend they are going to be the ones who shine a light for all the world to see, but mostly it will betheir parents.Paul says in Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God’s handiwork, prepared by Christ Jesus to do goodworks, which God has prepared for us in advance." So in other words we are all created by God to doGod's good works, and to serve Him in a place that He already has set for us. Some of the greatestChristian's I know are always seeking this perfect place where God is calling them to, and in the meantime we spend a lot of time searching for the mission field, when in reality we leave the first missionfield every morning when we lace up our bootstraps. Paul heard the voice of God in Acts 15and immediately went to work the following morning. The Lord blessed him for hisobedience and his reckless abandonment for the gospel.My prayer for each and every one of you whose eyes hit this paper is that you wouldreceive the grace of Jesus Christ for yourself so that when you see your mission field thatGod has called and prepared for you, you might be able to share that grace with them. Ipray that you will take up your call of duty and wherever you are be a disciple of JesusChrist and a light in your homes and then the world. We are going to take back a community and anation one home at a time. May God prepare the workers because the harvest is plentiful!IHG,Pastor JoeI am always open to dialogue about anything that might touch your hearts.....my email ispastorjoe@littlevalleyumc.org

Something new from the Altar Guild Staff 
We are going to offer a new way to have flowers on the Altar at least once a month,possibly more. As it's been for years the ladies who are on the Altar Guild offer to beresponsible for one month out of the year. They change the paraments and have somethingspecial on the Altar. We would like to allow others to sign up & order flowers or a plant, toeither honor someone or as a memorial. We have recently been in touch with DiVine Occasionsand the girls there will make available for $20.00, a bouquet in memory of someone or in honor of yourloved one. It can be for a birthday, anniversary, or any occasion you wish. The flowers might even lasttwo Sundays & if you wish to you could leave them. If not they could be taken home to enjoy. We willhave a sign up sheet with the dates of each Sunday for the rest of the year starting the first Sunday afterEaster. We will set up a flower fund and the money must accompany the order. If there are no flowersordered for any given Sunday then the person on the altar guild for that Sunday will continue as usual toput something on it. When flowers are ordered it will be in the bulletin as to who is being honored orwho is being remembered. And if it is to be anonymous we'll respect that too. I'd appreciate anyfeedback ASAP. Harriet Schauman-Altar Guild Chair
“You have heard that it was said ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tellyou; Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and send rain onthe righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will youget? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, whatare you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, asyour heavenly Father is perfect.”Matthew 5:43-48 NIV
