Welcome to Jonesville Church, a United Methodist Christian community. We seek to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ through worship and outreach. To equip us we offer many opportunities for education, service, spiritual growth, and fellowship for all ages. We seek to serve the needs of our local and worldwide community and to proclaim the gospel to all near and far. We welcome your visit and your inquiries and if you have no Christian community to call home, we invite you to participate with us and make Jonesville UMC your church home!
The following announcement was made at the beginning of last Sunday's worship service, by Cindy Taber.
"I am pleased to announce that Bishop Mark Webb, with the support of our District Superintendent and the Staff Parish Relations Committee, will appoint Youngjae Jee as our pastor, effective July 1st.
Our committee met with Youngjae on Wednesday evening, for two and a half hours. He opened the meeting with a devotion that we requested he prepare in advance. All of us were touched by the simplicity and power of the scripture and words he shared with us, including his honesty at needing these words himself, feeling nervous and anxious about our meeting. He gave thoughtful answers to our many questions, showing humility and grace under pressure, a deep faith, and foundational beliefs.
Youngjae was born in South Korea to a mother who was the first Christian in his family. He came to the US in 1997 to pursue a PhD in philosophy. He will share his story in the future, but he is married to Sungwon, and they have three daughters—Christina, 12, Teresa, 8, and Rebecca, 3. They lost their 7 year old son, Christopher, three years ago, a heart-wrenching situation that changed the trajectory of his life.
Youngjae expressed genuine joy at our invitation for him to become our pastor, as well as deep concern for the two congregations he leaves behind in Buffalo. They were only learning Sunday morning that their beloved pastor was leaving.
Please begin to hold up Youngjae and his family in your daily prayers as well as all three congregations, as we prepare for this transition."
This is Good News! As we anticipate receiving our new pastor and parsonage family,let's keep them in our prayers and Faith the Future!
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
