Pastor’s Pen

January 2017

 

         Welcome to another new year. It is a wonderful thing to look forward to the blessing of our Lord in this New Year. The United Parish is enjoying a time of growth in all dimensions.  We realize that He is always with us and that He will never leave us or forsake us. This promise is found in both the Old and New Testaments in Deuteronomy 31:6 and Hebrews 13:5. Our growth is a reflection of our desire to fulfill the 4 fold mission of our church.

            We are people who worship God in Spirit and truth. Our corporate worship recognizes who our God is and reminds us of what He is doing in our lives. Worship with a heart of thanksgiving keeps our relationship with our Savior, fresh, alive and well. This fills our worship services and lives are touched by the work of the Holy Spirit.

            We are people who love His word. The Bible is our rule of faith and conduct.  It teaches us God’s ways and gives us wisdom. The Holy Spirit keeps His word alive in our hearts and keeps us on the straight and narrow way. We need to continue to be people of the Book.  Our Sunday School continues to grow carrying out this effort for our children. The Bible Study that Scott and Wes give leadership continues to flourish.

            We are a people who love to fellowship with those of like precious faith. We gather together not just for services and formal meetings but socially as well. We enjoy working together to build God’s work. Building and maintaining relationships is so important to maintaining a healthy and vibrant spiritual life. Many new opportunities are developing for fellowship as we continue to walk with the Lord and with each other.

            We are people who reach out to those who don’t know the joy of Lord as their strength. Several years ago we had a theme of Each One bring One. That has become more than just a slogan. It has become a vital part of who we are as a congregation.  Our understanding of our Mission to reach the lost has become real to us. Missions is so important. 

            Let’s continue to keep this focus in the coming year. Our God is with us.  We need to commit ourselves to our Lord, and to the work of His Church. There are eternal blessings that will follow us to heaven as we remain diligent and faithful to follow our Lord and Savior.

            If you are looking to make a new Year’s resolution, I suggest you move into a spiritual dimension to make a resolution to walk closer to our Lord in this coming year so the blessings of God continue to flow onto you and our church.

 

May God’s blessings richly flow to you this year.

 

Yours in His Service,

Pastor Cal
