Pastor’s Paragraph—February 14, 2019
My days of being your pastor are rapidly drawing to a close. We have two more Sundays to worship our Lord together. This coming Sunday’s (February 17) worship service will include the baptisms of seven new Christians! My sermon (which is based on Numbers 13:1-3, 17-33; 14:1-4) is entitled “Where Do We Go From Here?” On February 24, I will be preaching my final sermon as your pastor. Taken from Philippians 1:3-6, the working title of this message is “Thank You, I’ll Remember You, God be with You.”
In coming days, I will continue to express my thanks to God and to you (my CBC family) for the opportunity and privilege of being the pastor of such an extraordinary church for these past 27 1/2 years. For now, I want to thank you for all the many birthday greetings and messages that I received this past Sunday which was my 66th birthday. Being able to worship God with you on my birthday #66 was a gift that I will always treasure.
I look forward to worshipping with you the next two Sundays. May God bless each of you during this time of transition!
Blessings from your grateful pastor,
