January 2017


Happy New Year! My hope and prayer is that the Advent and Christmas seasons have been a blessing to each of you. This past month I have especially enjoyed gathering in homes, at the church, and around the community to celebrate Christmas, birthdays, and one another. I am thankful for the opportunity to partner with each of you in the work of ministry as we live out our callings as Christ’s disciples.

It has been years since I’ve made any New Year’s resolutions, but I do try to set goals each year for what I want to accomplish. In 2017, one of my goals is to strengthen relationships – with family, friends, and community. I hope that when you come by the church during the week, you’ll pop by my study to say hello. Know, too, that I’m a phone call away should you want to talk. As part of this goal of mine, I’ll be looking to spend more time gathering in folk’s homes, in our Sunday School classes, and for a good meal or drink at the Mills.

May you and yours find abundant blessings in 2017!
