Sunday morning following the announcements, the search committee reported that the pastoral candidate they were so excited about would no longer be a candidate. I was as disappointed as you were. However, we can be comforted in the assurance that our Lord has the individual that will be best suited for our church. Furthermore, I’m convinced He will continue leading our search committee to that individual. As I told the congregation Sunday, “You are stuck with me for a few more months.” I am blessed to be apart of this wonderful church and will continue to serve you to the best of my ability. Please keep the search committee and me in your prayers.
The state of this church is strong and functioning well. That was most evident this past Saturday, when forty plus folks worked at being God’s hands in various areas throughout our community. We cleaned a home, raked leaves at another, and built a dog house for another. We visited our home bound and folks in assisted living facilities. Our children made crafts and carried them to those folks. The fellowship generated in those work areas was amazing. We certainly were ministering to our Jerusalem! Invite your friends and neighbors to come and worship with us and “Catch the Spirit”.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
