Sunday School Kick Off at the Westport Point United Methodist Church on Sunday September 13, 2015.

You and your children are invited to join them for their Sunday School program beginning September 15, 2015.  They will join together for worship at 10:00 a.m. and start Sunday School at 10:45 a.m. 

This year they are using Deep Blue Kids Bible and its curriculum.  Please explore this program at their website: www.deepbluekidsbible.com.

“Deep Blue Kids Bible includes exciting stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, and active games, to help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.”  The church office can be contacted with any questions at 508.636.2036 or by email at wpumc1@aol.com.

 

 

Pastor Bob (Song Bok) Jon has been appointed to Westport Point United Methodist Church by Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar, resident Bishop of the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church. According to Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts District Superintendent the Reverend Doctor Seok Hwan Hong, Pastor Jon will assume his duties on July 1, 2013.  

 

Pastor Jon grew up in a Methodist pastor’s family in Korea and came to Boston to study theology in 2004. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Boston University. In previous years, he served Belmont UMC as associate pastor (2008-2010) and First UMC of Portsmouth as lead pastor (2010-2013). He has served as chaplain for the police station in Portsmouth, NH. (2011-2013) He is married to Sue (Sung Ha) Kim. They are expecting their first baby in August.  

 

Pastor Jon has a passion for ministry with children and youth. He often plays basketball, soccer, and baseball with them. While he is aware that Jesus called his disciples to be fishers of people, he also loves to fish in the ocean. He is a huge fan of the Celtics and goes to watch the game once or twice per season. He loves music, especially jazz and blues, and plays the piano, guitar, and saxophone. He loves to make new friends and is passionate to welcome strangers, especially those who do not like churches for many reasons. 

 

He feels deeply privileged to come and serve Westport Point UMC and its neighborhood. He respects many wonderful ministries that the previous pastor, Pastor Katherine Mitchell, has shared with WPUMC and looks forward to listening to the voices of its neighbors and meeting them where they are. As Pastor Jon enjoys making coffee latte from his $78 latte machine, he hopes that anyone may come and stop by any time to meet him and share coffee and stories. God bless!
