Coming Up

 

The newsletter will now be published quarterly.  

 

Rev. Kim has announced his decision to retire as of July 1, 2022. 

It is has been my high honor and privilege to have served our local, national and global communities with you - such precious and spirit filled Christians called Methodists - for the past three years.  Since last year, I have been mulling over this new chapter of my faith journey and have reached this decision in Christ Jesus, my Lord and Savior.  I will always remember the heart warming love and care you have poured out on me, my family and my ministerial journey, and you will only continue to remain in my prayers to the Lord.  May the Lord's never failing grace and blessings be upon all of you, your journey unfolding ahead, and your loved ones now and always.  My retirement journey will take me to California with family. My last Sunday preaching will be June 5th.  In Christ, Rev. Kim

A Charge-wide service will be held June 5, 2022 at Bloomville UMC at 10am to honor Rev. Kim.
