This February, Mooreville United Methodist Church lost its 108-year-old sanctuary to a fire. While
the cause of the fire is unknown, what has been determined clearly is the resolve of the congregation
at Mooreville to remain focused on our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the
transformation of the world. It would have been easy to lose focus and neglect important ministries,
but such is not the case. The day after the fire, Mooreville UMC continued its weekly food ministry in
the community. In an interview with local news outlets last February, Pastor Dennis Rejcek,
Mooreville UMC, said, “We will focus on hope, and emphasize the fact that we will move on and build
again. We are not going to let this stop our ministry.” It has been and continues to be encouraging
to see many Central Texas Conference local churches, as well as others outside of our conference,
reach out to Mooreville UMC to assist in various ways. The generosity of so many is inspiring.
This year’s Annual Conference offering will go to support Mooreville UMC’s efforts to rebuild for the
glory of God and the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ. Thank you to those who have
already given to this effort and for those who will do so through this offering. Your gifts are greatly
