Join us for the Worship Service this Sunday and for a
special fellowship honoring Pastor Art Gatewood. 
We wish him God's blessings in retirement and are
grateful for the three and one-half years he has been
our Pastor.

FROM PASTOR ART

Will  You  Trust  God ?

The celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Easter, is the oldest holy day on the Christian calendar.  The date corresponds to the much older Jewish observance of Passover. 

We gather in our sanctuary Thursday, April 13, 7:00 pm, for a candlelight observance of the Last Supper.  This year Easter is observed Sunday, April 16. 

Easter Sunday children and others are invited to bring yard flowers to our sanctuary, on your way to Sunday school or worship, and an adult will help you fasten your flowers to the large cross in the front.   Our  “flowering of the cross”  is a reminder that, though Jesus died on a cross, his death is not the last word to us.  We rejoice in the Biblical affirmation that “the tomb was empty.  He is risen!”

April is my last month with you as your pastor.  On either side of Easter, I am preaching a three part message in light of the official end of our 3 ½  year relationship.  Based upon Paul’s letter, I Corinthians 12:12  and following, I will ask you “Will You Trust God with Your Past?  Will You Trust God with Your Present, and Will You Trust God with Your Future?”

It has been my privilege to serve as your pastor since August 2013.  My relationship with you has been deeply fulfilling for me.  I am already beginning to grieve the parting of our ways May 1st.

Yet I believe the Lord has great plans for YPPC in the months and years to come.  You have an excellent and experienced pastor in the Rev. Dr. William (Chip) Summers, ready to serve as your next pastor.  His resume is included in this newsletter.

As I said in a recent sermon, my overwhelming feeling about my relationship with you is Gratitude.  I thank you, and I thank God, for the honor of serving as your pastor.

Grace, Peace, Joy  --  Pastor  Art
