Greetings – Church Family
What an excellent May we have shared. I’m happy that we have more than survived one year together. I dearly hope you feel the same…Debbie and I do. Blessed! Reflecting on our anniversary, we are in awe of how God has merged our faith paths. Any new relationships come with some apprehension. Certainly, pastor and congregation relations qualify. But our God sees our concerns, knows our hearts’ desires, and works for our good.
We pray for our homebound and those enduring illness and hardships. We pray for our traveling snowbirds. We pray for the men and women who gave their all for our country and the sacrifice made by their families. We remember our dear brother, William (Bill) Edwards, who received his heavenly reception on Ascension Sunday, May 21st. God of mercy look with compassion on your hurting children. Grant them your sacred peace. May your divine favor be upon them.
May also brought some challenges to individuals and the church body. We looked to our Father for our needs and comfort. He delivers in the miraculous and earthy angels. Know how privileged we are to serve the kingdom with you.
Thank God that June has broken our drought. The rain has come, refilled lakes, and all around us, we are witness to the miracles of rebirth and new growth. We are the beautiful Lake-land we all know and love.
Taking our queue from the creator, let us apply ourselves to renewed passion for the gospel, refill our souls with the spirit and sing a new song.
In the words of that great Chef Emeril Lagasse, “Let’s kick it up a notch.”
Our twelve youths and children are attending summer camp. Jonathan Dinkins is joining us as a summer intern. August and Mike are high school graduates. VBS is starting. Lawton is making double plays. We have discovered new singing talent in our children’s group. I could go on and on!!!
What next? A C’Lake revival!
DOG days of Summer – Huh!
Lets make it
GOD days of Summer!!!
As always blessings, (Your) Pastor,
