On the first Sunday of July five years ago July 7 I began my ministry with you. Notice I did not say “my ministry to you.”
That’s because ministry is always a joint effort between the laity and the clergy. On that first Sunday I stood in the pulpit and looked at 17 dedicated servants of God. Today you are getting close to 60 persons. How did that happen?
It happened because you love the Lord first and you also love His people. But more importantly you are feeding the hungry, you are providing clothing and other essentials to persons in need. Today, you even offer Live Streaming for persons unable to attend in person.
I have seen you give extra food, money, and mostly your love to people you have never seen before. Just what if one of those persons were Jesus? “Whatever you did to the least of these, you do it also unto me.
I am proud to be your pastor and I look forward to more years of service with you.
