July already?!? Where has 2023 gone?? It is an honor and privilege to be with you during this transition
You have all been so warm and welcoming to both Teresa and I. You have made us feel, very quickly, part of
your family. We are blessed to share whatever time we have with you. We have worshipped together, prayed
together and of course had many laughs together. Worshipping with you have been sacred times and I will
remember them for a long time.
You are a blessed congregation. The location of our church surely shows the glory of God’s handiwork in
creation. We have a great staff of hard working people devoted to this congregation and its mission to further the kingdom of God. Our volunteers are truly amazing. You give so much of yourselves in everything you do: Wednesday wavers, Bible study, and the list can go on and on. The congregation loves being together. You can tell that by all the conversations before and after worship.
You are friendly and welcoming to visitors. I am so truly blessed being your supply pastor no matter how long I am here. Our future together is in God’s hands.
We still need to grow in mission and outreach. We need to work together to ensure our church will be here for a long time. Churches are closing all the time. Our world is getting worse each day. We need to be the beacon of God’s love to all. This will only happen if we continue to pray, worship and work together for God’s
glory. This is not about us only about what we can do for God.
Thank you again for letting us be with you. Thank you for loving me and letting me grow with you. May our
time together be a blessed time filled with the Spirit.
Always in His Hands,
