Dear Friends in Christ,

Today is August 16th. Where has the summer gone? How often do you find yourself

asking “Where has the time gone?” You would think that we would value the moments

all the more. The scriptures tell us “Teach us to number our days that we may attain a

heart of wisdom.” What will you do with the days ahead? Will you use your time

wisely? Will you cultivate and grow your faith?


Everything starts up again on Sunday, September 10. On that morning there will be

worship at 8 and 9:30 am with Sunday School in full swing at the 9:30 hour.


Confirmation class will begin that same evening at 5pm for those 9th grade and above.

Parents are cordially encouraged to come to this first gathering. It will take place in the

Pastor’s Study.


I would love to form a group this year who will read the Bible in the coming year. We

will gather once a week to reflect on what we have read, using a guided journal that we

have written as reference. This process of reading, journaling and reflecting is called

Life Journaling. If you are interested in taking part in this speak to Rev. Carney.


The scriptures invite you. Come! Worship the Lord! Enter God’s court with

Thanksgiving and Praise. Now is the time to worship!


Sincerely yours in Christ,

Pastor Tom
