Hi,

My name is Pastor Ed Saxman, I am new to the Grove City Community and the Grove City Grace United Methodist Church and I have to tell you that I am blessed to be here! I hope to welcome you in worship, and pray that you will journey with us as we seek to connect with God in ways that we cannot yet imagine.

One of my “go to” questions is “Where did you see God today?” I believe that it is a question that needs to be pondered everyday if a person wishes to walk in faith.  The gospel of Matthew records Jesus’ words as: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” (Matt. 7:7 ESV)

When we are asked to see God we become intentional in our search for the divine.  We are told to knock and subsequently we are able to walk through the door of heavenly recognition.  We open our eyes and find that God is there with us just as God has promised.

You have probably realized that life isn’t always easy.  People deal with all kinds of problems and issues.  Some are mundane, such as transportation, scheduling, and sleep; others are not so mundane, such as finances, medical, and relational…all are important! Despite everything, if we look for God, we will find that God is there.  Relationships will be built, friendships in faith will be made, and eventually joy will rule the day!

Whatever you may be facing in life is sure to be etched with problems but I promise you that if you look for God, you will find the divine and the joy of Jesus Christ will win the day! Here at Grace United Methodist Church in Grove City, PA, we would like to journey with you to joy!

Embrace Grace,

Pastor Ed
