Pastor's Message 12/30/2018

Dear friends,


This is the last newsletter of 2018. It has been a busy year at First Christian. We have said good bye to many saints of the church. We have welcomed new families to the congregation. We celebrated at weddings, graduations and anniversaries. Our children have learned much and built solid friendships at church and in the community through Vacation Bible School, Kingdom Kids and Sunday School. We have broken bread at the communion table and fellowship hall tables at carry in dinners.


All these things help to build us up as a community of faith. They help prepare us to look into the new year with hope and expectation that God will continue to do good things here and in the wider community through our outreach ministries. We have good solid leadership on board, in place and ready to move ahead.


I believe that we may never know the full impact of the ministries we provide here. And I also believe that lives have been touched and will continue to feel the spirit call to do God’s work in this particular place and time. So, Happy New Year to all. May God continue to bless us well so that we might be blessings to those around us.


Peace,

Pastor Mindy
