From the Pastor

 

DAVIS, CLINT; (Staff)148

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR – Black eyed peas and cabbage are overrated.  However, the beginning of a new year does provide an opportunity to begin again.  There are those things that we put off until a better time.  This is a better time.  There are those things we put off because they are difficult.  They are not going to get any easier if you wait.  This is a good time to deal with those issues.  The past will control you if you let it.  Fortunately, we serve a God who specializes in new beginnings.  A new year is a good time for a fresh start.

REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION – Our Building Committee has worked diligently to prepare a report and recommendation.  On Sunday evening January 13 at 6:00 p.m., we will hear that report.  I hope you will be in attendance to hear the recommendation.  Both our architects and our committee members will offer insight into the process and the final recommendation.  The vote on the recommendation will come in our January business conference.

LOVE GOD, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, LOVE OUR WORLD – For some time, we have used this phrase to guide our ministry.  Over the next few Sundays, I am going to preach a series of sermons based on this phrase.  As I have begun a new year, I have asked myself the question, “Why are we here?”  I hope this series points us to a good answer.
