Recent Messsages from the Pastor

  • From the Pastor's Desk
                                                                                Easter, 2017
    Dear Friends in Christ,
    He is risen, Christ has risen indeed.  Throughout his ministry, Jesus would ask two questions.  The first of which is; who do you say I am?  The following question is; how do we respond to Jesus Christ?
    Who do you say I am?  Let us remember that outside of Jesus Christ, God is totally unknown and inaccessible...for through Jesus, God's plan of redeeming, forgiving and restoring humanity is complete.
    Jesus asks each one of us in the Christian community...how are we to respond to this beautiful message?  As Christians, we are to unify and edify our faith, through the beautiful message of the gospel.
    As we witness to our faith, we are assured that the Kingdom of God will be centered upon Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ shale rule in righteousness and equity and God will make known the knowledge of his word, to cover the whole earth, as the waters cover the sea.
    Upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ, world government shall rest.  The name of Jesus shall be called wonderful counselor, the Prince of Peace, and our Lord and Savior.
    Have a Blessed and Happy Easter.
    Pastor Gary

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    In their first Thanksgiving...our early Pilgrim Forefathers clearly witnessed, demonstrated and fulfilled the Great Commandment.

    The Pilgrims risked a long, hazardous journey at sea, followed by brutal and fierce conditions at the Plymouth colony.  The Pilgrims however, exercised their freedom of faith by loving God with all their heart, mind, body and soul.  Through witness and discipleship and in spite of strife with the Indians, their relationship gave birth to Christian conversion.  Many of the Indian Christians directed that they be buried next to these Pilgrims who believe in Jesus and the resurrection.

    The brotherhood of love between the Pilgrims and the Indians literally saved Plymouth colony with the teaching of agriculture, such as planting of corn and using fish which served as fertilizer for the crops.

    Thanksgiving is a time to share with our family and friends.  Let us thank God, for all our blessings...and give back to God as we ourselves have been blessed.

    Let this Thanksgiving Day, within our church family and in our community be a day that we are thankful for all that God has provided.  Let us be grateful in this Thanksgiving season by sharing with our brothers and sisters.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all...

    Pastor Gary
