January 2020 - Message From Pastor Kathy King


"2020:  New Beginnings" 



Our new calendar tells us it’s time for a new year to begin!

I see the commercials that always are prevalent at this time of year... “be a new you!” usually associated with losing weight or shedding someold habit.

It’s become a custom with my granddaughters in our emails, phone calls (yes, we still actually talk to each other on the phone occasionally!), and texts to end our conversations with “I love you” to which the reply is “I love you more!”

We are blessed to know the Nativity story—we are blessed to be God’s beloved—and we are called to carry the story so that all will know the promise of the Savior born to us. That is more!

As we begin a new year in Christ, let us find quiet moments to hear the words whispered from our God... “I love you more!”

Jerry and I are blessed beyond words by each one of you—by your kindness, your friendships, and your invitation to journey alongside you in these faith journeys we are on! We continue to move into what it means to be a new faith community—each still very much a stand-alone congregation but willing to support our sister churches whenever we can. The old has gone. We are accepting the change the new is bringing. May we have the courage to continue to change where change is needed, the compassion to help where and when we can, and ears to listen to the Holy Spirit leading us into our new! It is my prayer that 2020 helps us see the new creation we’ve become through our Savior—Jesus Christ!

Happy New Year dear ones!
