About Our Pastor

Meet Pastor Paul Messmer

Hello,


I am very excited and so looking forward to serving as your Pastor in Holcombe, Jim Falls and Anson churches! I have been pastor at Rockland U.M.C. for the past 2 years, while driving truck. I have been driving semi for over 36 years. GOD has laid it on my heart to become a full-time pastor.


My wife’s name is Mary and between the two of us we have 5 grown children: 3 girls, 2 boys and twin 3 year old granddaughters. We love the outdoors and seeing new things and, as I say that, we love to look at antiques and buy a few. I am attending course of study and enjoying it. Mary plays guitar and her and I enjoy singing. I don’t have much of an inside voice and my email address, “biglaugh”, gives you a hint!!


I am looking forward to getting to know you all and to reach out to the communities we all live in. As disciples of GOD, that is what we are called to do. We journey daily and need to listen and follow where GOD is leading us. GOD has led me here to reach out and tell how GOD plays a part in our lives daily. This is a little background on me and my family and what you can expect to hear Sunday mornings. GOD is good all the time, all the time GOD is good! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve and grow with you.


Love and Laughter

Our Administrative Assistant

My name is Tracey Larson.  


My husband, Lonny, and I have been married since May 1997 and reside in Holcombe. We have 2 children.  Sam is 19 and while still lives at home works full time. Olivia is 17 and is a Junior at the Lake Holcombe High School.  


I worked in the banking industry for many years but after having my second child opted to stay at home with them.  I took online classes and then worked from home as a Medical Transcriptionist for a few years before the automated world took over our jobs.  Since 2016, I have been the Town Clerk and that keeps me pretty busy along with taking care of our beef cattle while Lonny works out of town.  I am also the leader for our local 4-H club, where my kids show beef cattle.  


I work in the Charge office in Holcombe and when my schedule allows. While I don't have set hours I try to be here every day during the afternoon.  However, since the pandemic has hit us my hours have decreased.  I ask for patience and understanding as my schedule does change often. I am available by email: [email protected] or by leaving a message at the Charge office (715-595-4967). Messages and emails are checked 3-4 times a week.


I am excited to be working with all of you.
