"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


A New Year of Worship and Mission Service

Each January we turn our calendars and look ahead to special events, anniversaries happy and sad, birthdays of younger relatives, and renewed service to others in the name of our Lord, through this extraordinary church.

January 8 we renew the leadership of session, with the Ordination as Elder and Installation of David Sklair, one of our newer members. Rounding out the three year session class of 2019, we shall install continuing elder Chuck Koches and elder Ron Holmes, returning to session after a year off. Thank you for your willingness to serve.

We express our gratitude to elder Bill Beard, completing his three year term in session, yet continuing his service in so many other ways.

February 4 we salute our youth ministry through scouting, Scout Sunday. March we begin to look ahead to Hands of Christ school clothing and supplies. April we celebrate Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday by candlelight, and Easter.

New Pastoral Leadership, we hope will begin May 1, is a transition in which we all can help. Session has appointed these members to serve as its Temporary Committee for a New Pastor -- Stephanie Easterling, Ron Holmes, Mary Mena Koches, Vivian Mobley, Eddie Rogers, How can you help? As a prayer partner. Pray that we find and engage the pastor God has been preparing to serve as our new pastor.

As I write this, I can close my eyes and see again our beautiful sanctuary, decorated for the season, most of our pews full, voices singing “Silent Night” by candlelight, Christmas Eve. There’s a deep spiritual chemistry evident in your worship experiences.

I wish for you a New Year full of good news, seasoned with some good surprises sprinkled about by God’s unseen Spirit.

Grace and Peace -- Pastor Art
