A Message from our Pastor about COVID-19

Church Family,

It really is an interesting time to be alive, isn’t it? I know that many of you feel like the world is a bit chaotic, but I want us to take just a moment and take a deep breath. Breathe peace, my friends. God is still God and will continue to be so, no matter what tomorrow brings. I may not know what the future holds but I know who holds the future. Let’s hang onto that.

You may be asking what is going on at Button and how are we responding. As United Methodists, one of our first charges is to first do no harm. Because of this and at the request of our Bishop, Mike McKee, we are cancelling all church activities until the end of the month. This includes youth, boy scouts, small groups, the all church breakfast and the kite flight, among others. The hope is that by limiting people meeting in groups, we can flatten the curve and help stop the spread of these contagious illnesses.

I will be meeting with church leaders tomorrow morning to discern our plan of action for the next couple of weeks. As soon as we determine this, we will communicate via email and Facebook. We do plan to continue being the church and a support to our Little Elm and surrounding communities. I have been in touch with town council members and our food pantry, to make sure we are doing all we can during this
uncertain time.

I want to encourage you to continue supporting the church in the many ways that you already do. If you tend to give via check, I ask that you mail those checks to the church office in the next couple of weeks. (PO Box 68 Little Elm, TX 75068) If you give online or wish to change to that manner, it can easily be set up on Paypal. This ongoing giving is key to us continuing to remain in good standing with our various financial obligations, including payroll. Let me know if you have questions regarding any of this.

We will keep you up to date on any changes and are available to answer any questions you may have. Please remember that we worship a God of peace and not a God of fear. Hang onto that and know that this storm WILL pass.

God bless you!

Pastor Melissa
