Pastoral Epistle – April 08 2021
Greetings in Jesus.
“The LORD makes poor and makes rich. He brings low and lifts up.” 1 Samuel 2:7
Our Lord is omnipotent. He is the one who can save us each day as we journey through this Pandemic that has affected our lifestyle, our economy and everything else. Please keep safe and trust God for His protection.
We praise God for the blessed lent season we had and all the special services through holy week, Good Friday and a wonderful Easter Service. We are thankful for Bishop Kevin’s word on Easter Sunday!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Sunday School coordinator, children and parents for the special Easter program. And a big thank you to our Choir members, Choir Director for the beautiful Easter Choir Anthem!
Finally thank you to James for editing and putting all videos together. Thank you to all who worked behind the scenes. Thank you to Jeffrey, Sangeetha, Pyari for organizing the “Greet and Meet” Easter fun and fellowship event. We enjoyed it!
Our church has so much potential and I’m sure God will use us mightily to bless others and be blessed ourselves too! Thank you to each of you who are serving in various ways in the house of the Lord.
My prayer is that we will be led by our Lord each day; and that His guidance will be with us in every decision we make. May our Lord be glorified in all we do.
I have been thinking of new ways to reach out to our families. Following my vacation next week I will meet each family on Zoom for fellowship time. I’m also planning to drop off the ‘Count your Blessings’ Boxes at your door. I’ll let you know the details. I also connected with most of our seniors on Easter Sunday and was able to have a little chat with them. I appreciate each of you for your faithfulness in sending in your tithes and offerings. May our Lord richly reward you. Please continue your good work.
As I announced on Sunday, I will be on my Winter break (though we are already in Spring now), from April 12th to 18th. If there is a pastoral emergency during my vacation please call our wardens.
