Pastor’s Pen – January 15, 2020

Hello Church family,
2020 is proving already to be anything but dull!

First, the last two weeks have been a great kickoff for our faith sharing sermon series. I am thankful to Rev. Jack Jackson for inviting us to participate in brand new faith sharing small groups in the month of March. If this is something you would like to participate in, please email Pastor Marcus.

Second, I sadly have to share that the EMMA school has decided not to partner with us in a long term agreement. They will be moving to another property in 2021. This was unexpected news that we received at our first town hall meeting. Needless to say, the leadership council will continue to discuss the future of our church.

There is a Scripture text that gives me comfort in the midst of fear and uncertainty. 1 Peter 5:6-7 states:

6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

The good news of Jesus Christ is that we are not alone. The good news of Jesus Christ is that no change of plans, financial hardship, or anxiety is greater than God. May God continue to give us strength to press forward and find new ways to share the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

In Christ,
Pastor Marcus
