Dear Church,

A month together has come and gone, just as the summer is
slowly winding down. School will be starting soon and
together, we will switch to a new routine, one that prepares for
the rest of the year. I have been thinking and pondering on our
first month together. Firsts are always full of questions, where
we are all feeling each other out to see what our new
relationship as pastor and congregation is going to be like. And
we are still early on in the process and still getting to know each
other. But I do know that I have been blessed this past month to

follow Jesus and say yes to His call to be His disciples is to say
yes to going places we never thought we would ever go.
means doing things we could never imagine on our own. And it
means finding God's abundance promises for our lives. What a
privilege to be on this journey with you!

                                 With Many, Many Blessings,
