Dear Church Family,
This coming Sunday is pledge Sunday!
I look forward to re-entering our annual tradition of bringing pledges forward and giving time to pray for each and every one of you. To our online community please know that I will be holding you in prayer as well.
This Sunday is also the beginning of Advent and in these tumultuous times I wondered if we shouldn’t acknowledge that Jesus was born into similar times filled with challenges. In fact, I often think we in the church are the most guilty of domesticating this season where we look to a story filled with scandal, displacement, even mass killings and an unlikely cast of characters and heroes. As you consider what you might give of your time, talents, and resources to your church family this year, I prayerfully look forward to discussing what Christ can mean, and a church can do and be, for such a time as this.
Grace and Peace,
