"You are the light of the world.  In the same way, let your light shine before others,so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven."- Matthew 5:14,16


My father likes to tell the story of the New Yorker who was leaning out of his second story window watering a flower box. His feet slipped and he tumbled out, falling through an awning and into a street level planter. A crowd quickly gathered as he got up, brushed himself off, and looked around. Someone said, “What happened?” The man replied, “I don’t know. I just got here myself.”I feel a bit like that. Starting a new relationship with a congregation is at first confusing. Trying to learn new names and who does what and when and where and how is a little overwhelming. By degrees, I’ll get it straightened out as the weeks pass. In the meantime, it’s clear to me that the church is well organized and the members do their tasks well.

I can say that Lynne and I have never been greeted with more warmth and encouragement than we have here at YPPC. This congregation has the best spirit of welcome I’ve encountered. We are genuinely excited about the prospect of new friends, new ministries, and new adventures of faith in your company.

The Psalmist calls out, “The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.” That’s the way I feel. God has graced us by bring us to this place and to you.

YPPC Distribution Day – Tuesday, Aug. 1 (5 – 7:00 p.m.)

The support from our congregation has been tremendous for the past two years. As we prepare for this year’s event - and another wonderful day of working together in outreach to our community – please know that all of your efforts are greatly appreciated.
