Pastoral Epistle – November 3, 2021
Greetings in Jesus!
“I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.” Micah 7:7
As we cruise through a time of slow transition to normalcy, it is easy to feel exhausted, tired and weak. Many families are going through tough times during an unending slow and frustrating transition. During such testing times, our hope is only Jesus. Let us keep on looking into Jesus, wait for His timing, knowing that our Lord is our salvation.
Last Sunday we had a blessed Song and Testimony service. Thanks to all of you who sang and shared your testimony.
Our new Sunday School Superintendent:
Mrs. Ramya Merlyn Moses will be our Sunday School Superintendent from November onwards. Sister Ramya has a passion for children. She is a qualified teacher. We welcome her to this wonderful role. May the Lord use her for the glory of His Name.
Special Choir Anthem for Synod: Our Diocese has asked that our church give a special Anthem for the Annual General Synod coming up at the end of this month. Brother Samson, our choir director, has taken special efforts to compose music and get the audio recordings done with the Choir members for this song. Brother James is helping in putting the Videos together. Thanks to all who have contributed to this.
