The Pastor’s Perspective – June 12, 2022

Dear First Family,

After a weekend away to do a wedding in Mississippi, I am looking forward to worship on Sunday! I am excited about it for several reasons. Let me share the two that stand out the most to me.

On Sunday we will begin a new sermon series entitled “Stories Jesus Told.” This is a sermon series on the Parables of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. I love a good story. No one tells them better than the Master Teacher, Jesus, Himself. No one retells them with more color and detail than Dr. Luke in his gospel. There is also no better truth to be taught than a Gospel Truth through a Biblical parable. Pray now that God’s personalized message to each one of us will be clear, constructive, and convicting. May God have His Will and Way in our midst.

I am also looking forward to this weekend because of our time with Griffin Ebenezer Church. We will share a wonderful meal and fellowship with them at their church on Saturday. On Sunday at 4 PM we will worship together in our sanctuary. This is a treasured opportunity. Do not miss this “red letter day.” May we make a strong statement with a bold and unified witness to our community that unifies and builds bonds when His People follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.

It is a joy to be your pastor. I look forward to our time together.
