Associate Pastor's Report

I would love to write, as I normally do this time of year, about all of the wonderful fall activities that we usually have planned, or share about the fun we had this summer, but the fact is, nothing is normal. Let’s face the facts, it has not been an easy time in ministry. I have missed many smiling faces, welcoming handshakes, and the fun that we have when all of us are together. However, it has hopefully opened our eyes to some key things.

  1. We love each other. It is often said that you don’t appreciate what you have until it is gone. I know I miss many of you right now and can’t wait until you are with us again.

  2. We need to pray without ceasing. Many are going through difficult times and we must not forget the power of prayer!

  3. We need to stay in God’s Word. Even when we are not together we must continue to have our minds renewed in the Word.

  4. We each must share the gospel. This is not a time when we can easily invite others to an event to hear the gospel. Instead, we must understand the responsibility God has given us to take the gospel to the lost.

I cannot wait until things are back to normal, whatever that means. In the meantime, may God be glorified in all that we do, even when we are apart. Do not forget that you can come join us for our one Sunday School class at 10 and service at 11 on Sundays. Also, Wednesday night Bible Study at 6:30!
