This morning's service will be posted this evening. Meanwhile, enjoy the music video we used to close this morning -- Hezekiah Walker's "Better".
People come, people go
Your life has been out of control
You're confused, don't worry your soul
It will get better (Better)
It will get better (Better)
It will get better
God is in control
Find your praise within your heart
Hold it close, don't ever depart
It gets cold in the night
But you'll be alright
Whatever state I find myself in
I learned how to be secure
Knowing that God will supply all my needs
And He'll work things out for my good

This morning in worship, we watched Bishop Webb's message from the opening session of this week's Upper New York Annual Conference. We will be posting the service in its entirety this evening, but in the meantime here is the Bishop's message.
Bishop Mark Webb of Upper New York Annual Conference has announced his intention to reappoint Pastor Kelly Warner as half-time pastor here at Ballston Spa UMC. We celebrate that she has been with us 3½ years now. Starting July 1st, in addition to serving here, she will also be appointed to serve 1/4-time at the Round Lake United Methodist Church.
While most everything remains the same, there will be a change made to our worship time. To facilitate her serving both churches, our district superintendent Debbie Earthrowl has set our worship time at 10:30, beginning July 4. Stay tuned as we explore what time may work best for our online and in-person coffee hours.
Beginning on Sunday, June 20th, we will rejoice in no longer taking temperatures or contact tracing. For those who are vaccinated, masks will not need to be worn. Masks will be needed for those who are unvaccinated. Any worship volunteers greeting, ushering, or helping with holy communion will wear a mask. We acknowledge that this has been a difficult time and appreciate everyone’s efforts and caring for one another.
