THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
How has your summer gone? I hope you’ve enjoyed it. If you are like most of the people I’ve spoken with, you are probably feeling like it zoomed by at the speed of light. Many consider this weekend the unofficial end of summer—one last chance to relax before we begin the normal fall-through-spring routine.
Along with the nostalgia that comes from saying “goodbye” to summer, I hope you are feeling some excitement, as well. As the calendar turns from August to September, it is good a time to look forward. That is happening around the church office. You can feel a quickening of the pace as the staff make their plans for the upcoming year of ministry.
We have many, many exciting things coming up in the year ahead, and I look forward to telling you all about them in the coming weeks. For now I just want to say that I am looking forward to another year of being a church family together. Summer is a fun experience, but, for me, it is kind of a scattered experience that make me miss connecting, serving, and just being together as a church.
This year we will enjoy friendships, Bible studies, worship services, laughing and playing together, and doing a lot of other things side-by-side to further God’s Kingdom. I’m excited about that, and I’m glad to be on this journey with you. –Pastor Tom
