What a great day to be back in God’s house. When you have missed church, it throws your entire week out of balance. Our coming week is based on worship, the first day of our week. Sometimes it’s hard to get your days straight, when you have missed church, and especially if you have holidays in the middle of your week. We had many to pray for and many have lost the battle, and we remember the bereaved.
Brother Ric read 1 Corinthians 9:21-27, with his thought about “The race.” It is very important to start strong, however, endurance is a trait we must have to finish to the end.
Brother Ric and Lisa were elected to be our pastor for the next year, congratulations to them and we are looking forward to good things happening in this new year. We continue to look for a piano player. If this is your talent and you don’t have a regular church home, we would be so glad to have you come.
