Dear Brothers and Sister in Christ,

Anyone that knows me knows that I love cats.  I have two indoor cats, Mauzer and Casey, and am currently caring for a quite a few outdoor cats as well, the number of which keeps growing.  Each of them is unique and has their own special charm.  Some are shy, some are friendly and affectionate.  Some have long hair, some have short hair, and no two are colored exactly the same.  But they do have some things in common.  They all need food to nourish them, water to refresh them, and shelter to protect them.  And they all know that I love them and will do my best to provide for their needs.  So it is with my congregation as well.  I love each and every unique member of Cochranton UMC and would gladly welcome anyone that wishes to join us.  And I promise to do my best to feed you from the Word, ensure you have access to living water, and shelter you from the storms in life.

I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you!  (Romans1:8)       

Your servant in Christ,

Pastor Karen
