Greetings Dear Ones,
As I pause to write you a few lines today I’m thinking of how rewarding hard work can be. I think of it every time I look at our new church playground. Not too long ago that spot was a grown over thicket. Now it is something beautiful and useful that our children will love. God’s blessing and a lot of hard work made that possible. Thank you for your hard work in making this (and other ministries and projects) possible.
You know, relationships are hard work too. Especially marriage. It’s very rewarding, but demands hard work and commitment and tons of understanding. Satan is attacking marriages constantly because he understands the damage that can be done if the marriage is destroyed. Not just to the husband and wife, but to everyone around. That’s the reason I want to invite married couples (and seriously dating ones too) to come out and be a part of our “Love for a Lifetime” conference. A wonderful meal, some great teaching time and a Q&A session with a panel of seasoned marriage vets (to bring their collective wisdom) will add up to a fun and entertaining, yet practical and helpful evening. The cost is $25 per couple- that is a great investment in having a strong and happy marriage. You can call the church office to make your reservations.
In closing, I also want to encourage you to begin praying now for our Every Believer a Witness Spring Revival with Brother Dennis Nunn (March 22nd- 25th). I am fully persuaded that if we take this seriously it can be the key to significant growth of our church.
With a Shepherd’s Love, Pastor Mike
