the Pastor's pen

Greetings to Everyone,

I hope in the Lord that everyone is getting along well. As always, I want to give a big thank you to all of our church family who work so hard serving the Lord and His people. We have a busy calendar for the upcoming month and of course, the Homecoming is fast approaching in August, celebrating 65 years of faithful people serving our Lord. In our busyness of coming and going, we certainly want to do what we do for the glory of God. We also want to be good representatives of our Lord. In 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 we read about the necessity of doing what the Lord wants us to do; being where God wants us to be; and representing Him well in our attitude. He indeed leads us in triumphal procession through every endeavor we incline and since He uses His people the fragrance and aroma of Christ is evident and pleasant wherever we go.

We are to God the aroma of Christ to those that are saved and likewise to those who are perishing. We do not choose who the Lord puts in our path but we do choose how we will be in their midst. Fast, temporary substitutes will not suffice for what the Lord has planned for us to do. Do your best to leave the impression long after your encounter that the Lord has changed your life. It is with sincerity that we live, share, and pray for those around us. I pray that the Lord will bless each one of you. I am looking forward to VBS this year and of course our 65th Homecoming.

God Bless You

Bro Mike
