Getting to know you...

Welcome to the Sermon on the Mount study group. Let's get started by introducing ourselves so we know who we are talking to. This is one day when EVERYONE should post a comment. Let us know who you are in addition to a lover of Jesus! I'll start the ball rolling. I'm Tracy Moore from Warwick UMC. I have dreamed about being part of group like this for some time and I'm really looking forward to studying with ALL of you. May the Lord bless our time here. Holy Spirit come and teach us what You want us to know. AMEN!

Nikki Edleman said...

Hi, all! My name is Nikki Edleman. I met Tracy at a Sabbath retreat last summer, and I am glad to be able to join this study. Kudos to Tracy for reaching out and inviting me! I wear many different hats: I am a seminary student at Drew University; I work part-time as a student pastor at the Clinton Avenue UMC in Kingston, NY; and I am a wife, mother of 2 elementary-age kids, and I pretend to keep the house in order. ;-) One thing I appreciate most about bible study is being gifted with the different perspectives of others about the text; this is a great way to grow in my faith. So, I am looking forward to this study. Peace!

Hi, I am Mar Cochran and I am Tracy's sister in law married to her brother Russ. We live in St. Louis and are empty nesters! We have been in a couples' bible study for several years and this year we are doing a study of angels in scripture. It has been very interesting!
Thank you Tracy for your efforts and we are glad to be a part of the group.

Good morning. I am Marilyn McCarter, a member of Warwick United Methodist. I am somewhat computer savvy, but not a user of social media, so this format will be an experiment for me. I look forward to sharing with other people of faith.

Hi friends... My name is Angie Burden, daughter of God, mother of two teenagers,and wife of one good man. I live in Ontario, Canada now, but used to live in the Hudson Valley - tiny hamlet of Wallkill, about 45 minutes from Warwick.

My husband was the previous pastor at Mid Hudson Christian Church, and I have had the blessing of sharing times of teaching and ministry with women attending WUMC...

It is freezing up here... I am longing for warmer days!

Haydee Atkins said...

Finally got onto the blog! My name is Haydee ... living in Warwick and attending the Warwick United Methodist Church since about 1996. I met my husband at the church and are married now 16 years. Frank has been a member for about 27 years. We started a Tuesday night Bible Study group at our home as soon as we moved to Warwick in 2005 and it is still going strong.... though now we meet at each others home and are all equally responsible in it. I have not really wanted to do multiple study groups but thought I would give this a try. Now I am looking forward to this experience during this holy season. God Bless.

Hello everyone, my name is Beverly Robertson, I attend WUMC with Tracy. I live across the border in NJ. I was raised a Quaker and stil seek the quiet time of reflection to await the still small voice of God. I listen to southern gospel music on XM radio on my commute to work. It nourishes me and sets the tone for the day.
