A Message from Pastor Leanne

A Message from Pastor Leanne

My friend just opened her pool. it is still May so that water is still cold.  One of her
children stood back as far as he could on their deck, psyched himself up a bit, and
then just dove in to the cold water.

As l  am packing  up my  house  and office, looking towards the move to Bath and
the  new work God is  doing in all  of us,  l feel I am  standing  as far back on that
deck, preparing myself to dive in full force.  Perhaps  that  is how you feel as well
with  the  change  of  pastors.  As  United  Methodists, we  just  dive into ministry
together. The  Good News  is  we  are  not  diving  into the unknown alone. God's
grace has already gone before us, God is with us now, God promises to be with us
to the end of days.

So let's dive in!
I  am Leanne Zeck. I  am  pastoring  currently  at  New Beginnings UMC in  Elmira.
Originally,  l  am  from  Buffalo,  South  Buffalo/  West Seneca  to be more exact. I
have served in Stafford and LeRoy before Elmira. June 11 marks my 8th ordination
anniversary. I love hockey, reading, hiking, dogs, and cook outs.

One of my favorite verses is
2 Corinthians 5:17
17 So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. The old
things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived!

God is always doing something new in our lives. Thank  God  for the mercies that
are new every morning, the new grace that is given  each day, the new starts we
all get. Sometimes that involves small  changes, sometimes-big changes. For this
season of our lives,  we  will  journey  together  into  this great adventure of God
making us new, making Bath new, making all of Creation new again. So let's dive
right in by and with God's grace!

l will see you all in July!
