Letter from Our Pastor

Letter from Our Pastor 10/20/21 

What a beautiful fall day we are experiencing today. My hope is that you have a moment to be still in the Lord's presence today and find a spark of hope in the beauty that surrounds you.

It was so wonderful to be back in person for worship last Sunday and to also see familiar friends worshipping online as well. I am grateful for how well everyone adhered to the COVID protocols that allow us to meet in ways that are safe and effective. Thank you!

If you missed worship you can still join via video by visiting our Facebook page or YouTube Channel. You can also read the sermon that is attached. 

I also wanted to thank those who attended our Administrative Council meeting and Charge Conference on Sunday. Sometimes we may not realize how blessed we are as a congregation to have faithful leaders willing to use their gifts to attend to the administrative needs of our church. We are grateful for all who step up and lead. 

Tonight, our Youth return to their regular meeting schedule and we are excited they are coming back together and about their plans to get back to one of the things they love most - serving God through a summer mission building team! Join them in prayer as they plan their next adventure to Georgia.

Also tonight, Adult Bible Study continues as we look at Fortitude and Courage in the Gospel of Luke. Join us via Zoom at 6:30 tonight. Please contact the church office to obtain the direct meeting link or the specific phone number to participate. 

Please continue to hold one another in prayer and in loving-kindness. Especially we pray for a church member as she grieves the loss of her brother, and for a church member who has been released [from ICU] to rehab for continued healing, as well as others who need our love and prayers. 

God bless and keep you,

Pastor Karen
