Pastor’s Message: New Life in Christ

Greetings!

 This month we celebrate Easter, the most important Church holiday of the year. It’s the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as being raised to new life in Him! As Easter has become more and more commercialized, it’s easy to focus on just one day. There’s the build-up with Easter eggs, […]

Pastor’s Message: Appreciating God’s Gifts in the Face of Tragedy

Greetings! As I contemplate these cloudy days, sometimes I am struck by what seems to be a cloudiness of soul. There is so much that concerns all of us in this day and time as we still struggle with the pandemic, as we see natural disasters become more frequent, as we see our country struggle […]

Pastor’s Message: Nothing Will Separate Us from the Love of God

Happy New Year!

Christmas felt like it came up on us quickly and was over very quickly. I hope you had a blessed holiday season that brought you joy and contentment.

Some people I know expressed this year that they just couldn’t get into the spirit of things. It just didn’t feel like Christmas. I know there […]
