Dear Members and Friends of the United Methodist Church of Merrick,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Risen Christ!

I pray this finds you and your family well. As the season of autumn comes upon us, we can see the leaves slowly changing into the color of sunset. Perhaps not wanting to be left behind, the sunset also comes earlier and earlier. They are both spectacular sights that our God has created for us to enjoy. Thanks be to God!

With our choir back from summer hiatus, our Sunday worship at The United Methodist Church of Merrick is becoming more lively. His WORD is being proclaimed and our congregation is able to worship in spirit and in truth, as our LORD has intended us to do. Our Midweek Prayer Service on Wednesday mornings has already seen prayers answered, showing us the faithfulness of God. With afternoon Bible Study already started and the evening Bible Study about to begin, summer vacation is clearly behind us.

Our delayed Harvest Fair will be held on Saturday, November 10th. We invite you, your family and friends to join us at Merrick UMC on this special occasion as well as on Sundays to worship with us. To many, Thanksgiving may be a single day or a long weekend, but to those who worship God, giving thanks is a daily occurrence.

As the congregation of Merrick UMC and I walk and live the Christian path together in the journey of life, we invite you to join us in this journey.

Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Akio Iyoda
