June 2013 - Pastors Newsletter Article

Picture of a Welcome Mat
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Do you remember the first time you visited this church? Did you walk in not knowing anybody? Did you encounter unknown faces, music, and habits? What made you feel welcome? What brought you back?

Since you received this newsletter you most likely worshipped with us; probably more than once. Some of you are longtime members. Many have recently started to worship and serve with us. Others are in the process of checking things out.

Each of us was at one time a “visitor.”

This is Discipling - Video from Sunday Nov. 13

Several people had requested information on how they could view and share the video that I shared during the sermon on Sunday.

Thank you for giving to the Lord!

Giving anything to anyone is a big step. To give is to understand that it is not all about “me.” Giving may grow out of concern for the needs of others outweighing our own, love, the joy of giving, gratitude, being content with what we have, and God working in our hearts.

As Christians we give from more than our wallets. We give our hearts to God to be shaped like his. We give time, concern, friendship, a listening ear, helpful hands, strong backs, as well as soft hearts to those in need. We speak up and stand up for those who are silenced.
