We Did It!

  Immanuel, Sunday July 7, 2018 will be the start of our eighth year together in ministry. Through your love and support I was able to complete my Course of Study Certification as Local UMC Pastor. However, the best part is that I can continue as your Pastor as long as you will have me. I felt the presence, of some of our past saints as we celebrated as family our accomplishment on March 10, 2019. Once again, I thank you all for your acceptance, love and support of my call to ministry, my family and my unorthodox leadership style.
  I love my appointment to God ministry here at Immanuel. I know that we have number of resource issues, that we must address and God will be asking a great deal of each us in the coming days, week and years. Yet, I have witnessed that no matter the challenge, the people of Immanuel will always trust God and try your best to be his hand feet in the world. Immanuel, getting me through Course of Study, was just the beginning, now I have more time to focus on God’s ministry at Immanuel.
  I am truly energized by your faithfulness, commitment, and love for God’s ministry. Therefore, as our journey continues year after year, I will do all that I can to help us grow our diverse Christian family.
 
As we continue with our Summer of Love (SOL). In the next few weeks, we will have a huge opportunity welcome many guests with our MCREST ministry August 4 – 12. However your help is needed to insure that our guests feel welcomed, loved and cared for, that can only happen if we have enough volunteers.
 
Once again, thank you so much for allowing me to be your Pastor.
 
I will leave you with our VBS theme from last week taken from Philippians 4: 13
“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength”.
 
 
Amen!

For I can do everything through Christ,
who gives me strength.
