Letter from the Pastor March   2018

Lent is much like a spiritual marathon. I have never run a marathon, only a couple of 5K run/walk events which I opted for the walk choice.

Letter from the Pastor February 2018

Letter from the Pastor November 2017

Giving Thanks These song lyrics come to my mind especially during the thanksgiving season, “Give thanks with a grateful heart. Give thanks to the holy One. Give thanks because he’s given Jesus Christ, his son.” There are so many scriptures that speak to giving thanks to God… Psalm 9:1 Psalm 28:7 1 Corinthians 1:4-5 2 […]
