I want to take this opportunity to say: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and, to be honest, I worried way too much about how our congregation would respond to the massive disruption that COVID has caused. Would we be able to meet all of our needs? Would we be able to take care of all our missional responsibilities? How will our people respond?
Martha has just given me the final financial numbers for 2020, and they are spectacular! Together, we gave $ 940,789 to God’s work in our church and beyond. We not only met our budget, we exceeded it greatly!
Friends, this is astonishing. Despite the fear and uncertainty a global pandemic brought us, you have remained so very faithful in your giving and ministry. Let me say it again: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I want you to know how proud I am to be your pastor, and I want you to know that I wake up every single day excited to be in ministry with you. Know that you are loved and appreciated!
