The Pastor’s Pen

August is a time of new beginnings for many of us. The teachers, administrators, and staff of our local schools are gearing up for another exciting year. The students, ready or not, will be reporting to classes this week to begin another exceptional year of learning. Let’s never forget what a great gift education is to everyone in our community!

I am so proud of the many professional educators in our congregation, and I want you to know that you are doing the Lord’s work every single day as you seek to educate and love every child in our community. My prayer is that you will receive a special dose of encouragement from the Lord as you begin a new school year! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do!

Will you join me this week in praying for everyone involved with our school district? We are truly blessed with excellent schools, and our community is what it is in large part because of our educational system. Let’s do everything we can to support our teachers and schools! They are a gift to us all!


P.S. Speaking of new beginnings, be on the look out for information pertaining to our Wednesday night ministry. We’ll be posting updates on social media and utilizing the newsletter and worship bulletin for communication. I look forward to getting back in the swing of things on Wednesday nights!
