With a saddened heart I'm letting the congregation of Emory United Methodist Church know that after much thought and prayers Danny has decided to take retirement, effective July 1, 2021. Danny has assured me that it is not because of anything anyone has done or said that has made him decide to retire. Danny has, also, said that he would continue to work hard up until June 30th.
Also, I want you to know that Danny has told me that they will be moving some of the furniture and other items to the new home in Royce City at the 1st of February, but will continue to be here several days of the week.
Also, myself and several others have had a meeting with the District Superintendent and they have started the process of finding another pastor, but that it could be the end of March or the first of April before a choice could be made.

Music affects us in powerful ways. Hearing our old favorites and treasured hymns helps us remember pleasant times. Song lyrics give us words to describe feelings that are other wise hard to express. Music offers comfort and relaxation. Music connects us with God, drawing on His strength and courage. Using His gift of music unleashes His power within us. Choir Practice is currently suspended.
