From the Pastor's Pen
First, I wanted to express again our family’s gratitude to our church family, following my mother’s passing away in February, for your prayers and expressions of love. You are a wonderful church family!
Our church finishes our statistical year at the end of April and May 1st we start a new year, which gives us an opportunity to focus on our church, our mission, goals, vision, and ministries. We look toward the next “church year” to discern what it is that God wants to accomplish through us moving forward.
We are in the midst of a 14 day Daniel Fast to seek God on behalf of our church and for our own spiritual growth. We are praying that God will work miracles in our lives and church that will take us deeper in our relationship with Him.
On May 7th we will be holding our annual meeting where the members will vote for the officers and delegates for the next 1 to 2 years (depending on the office). This year it will be way more than just voting and I encourage you to be here. I will be challenging the congregation as we look toward where God is leading us in the fulfillment of our mission. Our mission statement is, “To be and develop disciples of Christ.” God has blessed us in so many ways and we have had a wonderful year, but we must move forward. We will be having a ministry fair that same day where information will be available about all of the great opportunities that we have to get involved in helping people and reaching them for Christ. Through service we find fulfillment in our own lives and we ourselves grow in our walk with God. There will be a cookout following the service with the food primarily being provided by the church. May 7th will be an exciting day. I hope to see you here!
We just had another of our fine ladies pass away this week. Sharon Romba has gone to be with her Lord but we will miss her greatly. She always had a smile and an encouraging word. It has been a joy to be her pastor! Condolences to her family.
It was a privilege to interview Tonya Hockenberry at our last church board meeting for a local minister’s license. One of the wonderful blessings to come out of our last women’s retreat was that Tonya committed herself to the call of God that she had been sensing to go into ministry. Pray for Tonya as she joins Robert Swedenhjelm and Connie Young in taking classes that will equip them for ministry careers. It is my joy to work with these great people who are being obedient to the call of God on their lives!
Carol & I appreciate your continuing prayers. It is our privilege to be part of this church family!
In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Wayne Hennen

throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing
