A Word from Pastor Jon

As I look back over this last year I can’t help but rejoice over what you have accomplished.  This has been a big year at the same time I look forward to a New Year and what is before us.  This will be a year where we will see new people taking leadership roles in the church, find more ways in which we can make Christ known in our community through our actions and words.  I especially am looking forward to an enhanced worship team this year. More people will be taking a role in planning and leading in our worship.

This will be a time of discernment for us as our denomination waits for the recommendation from the council of Bishops on The Way Forward in preparation for the Special General Conference (The Voice of the Church) as they try to provide a pathway for the denomination to address the issue of human sexuality. How will we respond to this challenging time? You will hear more about this as the year progresses.

Exciting and challenging times are before us and we will be up to the task, with God’s help, to continue to be a light that shines in darkness and a beacon of hope for those who need to hear and experience the love and grace of God through Jesus Christ.  We will be true to our call, vision and mission to our community and above all faithful to Christ our Lord.

Looking forward to a great year with you in our journey together.

Faithfully yours,

Pastor Jon
