The Pastor’s Pen  

Hello Brethren, 

As we bid farewell to the year 2002 and welcome 2003, it is my prayer that each and every one of you enters this New Year filled with hope, cheer and commitment.  I want to thank each of you who have made this past year a success for the Church.  Thanks so much for your loyal commitment to this Work through your tithes and offerings.  It was a blessed and joyous day this past September when we paid off the mortgage for our Church Sanctuary.  It is indeed a tribute to your commitment and faithfulness these many years.   

We have much to do and there are so few of us.  But, we must not be discouraged because we lack the might and strength of man, for God is with us.  When much is accomplished by many it is by the strength of man, when much is accomplished by a few, which has been God’s tradition for His Church ever since sending out just 11 witnesses to the greatest truth ever told, the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord and savior.

II Th 2:14-17

14        Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15        Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16        Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17        Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.  (KJV) 

I commend and thank each and every one of you for pitching and doing your part, carry your load and shouldering your responsibility in your calling.  God has brought us together for a purpose.  The truths He has revealed to us are founded in the scriptures, the Word of God, not in any ideas or writings of man.  Let us not lose our “pearl of great price”. 

Thanks to you who keep the Church clean and sparkling, green and groomed: thanks to each of you who work the audio equipment and the audio/video recording; for those of you who copy and mail out the sermon video and audio tapes for our Sermon Outreach Mission.  Thanks to you who create and publish the weekly bulletins and monthly newsletter; thanks for keeping up the Church’s Web Page.  Thanks to you who teach the Adult, Children’s & Youth Bible CEP Classes; thanks for those who look after the lists, finances and clerical duties; thanks to you who bring sermons of truth  & beautiful music of praise to our Sabbath Worship Services.   Thanks for all your hard work each year hosting the Festival of Tabernacles.  I know that you do not serve for recognition or commendation, but rather for the glory of God & Christ, but I commend and thank each of you for your unflagging faithfulness.  To God be the Glory!

1 Cor 1:24-31

24        But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25        Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26        For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27        But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28     And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are:

29        That no flesh should glory in his presence

30        But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31        That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (KJV)

 I love you guys!
