Words from the Pastor

Reverend Catherine Clayton                                                Pastor Cathy

October 16, 1953—April 23, 2017

Pastor Cathy came to Westville about 3 years ago to become the new minister for Westville United Methodist church.  She brought with her her southern charm, her gentle soul, her compassionate nature, and her unbelievable excitement for serving the Lord.

From NASA to Westville. From rocket scientist to pastor. An unusual journey. Cathy, however, loved to share her experience of receiving the call from God to quit her job at NASA and begin her studies to become a minister. She had already become deeply informed and educated in the heavens of outer space. It was now time for her to change her focus and become personally educated in the Heaven of eternity.  This was the epitome of “higher education” and she answered this call with some worries and challenges but her enthusiasm and faith overcame those concerns and led her here. The journey of her calling filled her heart with joy and purpose because her greatest pleasure in life was serving her Lord and following His will.

We will miss Cathy deeply but celebrate with overwhelming joy knowing she is singing and dancing with the angels and smiling in amazement at being in the presence of her Savior. She was always delicate in body and stature but she was a warrior in heart and spirit. As a church we pray that our lives will be a blessed reflection of the powerful and mighty love of God that Cathy so diligently and joyously taught us about each week. It is with solid affirmation that we know with whom she will share eternity.
