A Note from the Pastor
As with most churches, our church took a terrific hit after the economic downturn in 2008. We lost 139 people for various reasons, mostly due to trying to find jobs. You can imagine the financial situation that left us in. Our yearly church budget went from $350,000.00 per year to struggling to meet a $120,000.00 a year budget. Not only did it cost the church monetarily, but it also hurt in the area of leadership. It has been a tough four years but God has once again proved faithful. We have just experienced the best consecutive six months that we have had in the last 20 years. God is blessing our people in their work and they in turn are testing God in their giving. God has said “to bring the tithe into the storehouse and I will pour out a blessing on you that you cannot contain." (Malachi 3:11) And we are seeing that happen.
My wife, Sharon Joy and I are celebrating our 15th year as pastors of this good church. With what has happened around here in the last few months, I am excited to see what God is going to do for us in the future. If you don’t currently have a church home, I would invite you to give us a try.
I’ll be looking for you Sunday!
