A Message from our Pastor

Over the past few weeks, we have experienced God’s hand of blessing
on many of our summer activities.  Camps for our children and students were filled with life-changing moments for campers and adults alike.  Our mission trips have been weeks of fruitful, meaningful ministry.  God is truly moving through the ministries of our church.

In the midst of a lot of positive news, there is one area where we are struggling.  Each year over the summer, the giving to our budget falls below our normal giving pattern.  Some of that is to be expected.  However, this summer that gap has grown larger than normal.  While that “gap” is not alarming, it is concerning.  

Your church needs your faithful, financial support.  I want to ask you to continue to support the ministries
of our church through your giving.  Sometimes when a pastor writes about finances, people think he is only speaking to those who can give “big gifts.”  I assure you that is not the case.  If all of us, regardless of our income, give obediently, cheerfully, and biblically, God will supernaturally meet our needs.

Finally, I want to thank you for your kindness in acknowledging the nine years I have been your pastor.  Mary Anne and I are grateful to be a part of this fellowship of believers.  Kali loves her church.  She looks forward to the Sunday she receives flowers every year. We pray for many more years of serving together through our church.
