The Pastor's Perspective
Thank you to everyone who made Back To Church Sunday a success. We had a full house. It was so wonderful to welcome so many people back to church! Thanks to everyone who invited someone and thanks for making people feel welcome this past Sunday. Keep on praying that those who came back to church this past Sunday will keep coming to church. Pray that this past Sunday was the start of them getting back into the habit of church attendance.
This past Sunday we started a new sermon series, You'll Get Through This . The series is based on the Old Testament character of Joseph. This coming Sunday's message is entitled, "Down But Not Out". Has life got you down or knocked you down? Do you have any unfulfilled dreams in your life? This Sunday's message will give you the encouragement that even though you might be down right now, you're not out! God is not done working in your life.
I look forward to seeing you and sharing this message with you this coming Sunday.
