Pastoral Epistle – June, 21, 2023
Beloved Congregation,Greetings in Jesus!
“O Lord, we have waited for You; The desire of our soul is for Your name and for the remembrance of You.” Isaiah 26:8God calls His people to wait for Him with all our heart. When we are filled with His presence, our desire will be for the remembrance of His name.
Thank you to our ladies for the wonderful lunch on Sunday, Father’s Day. It was a nice service; so complete. Our children did a wonderful job of praising the Lord with songs. The video clip displaying our fathers with their children was simply superb. A big thank you to everyone who invested precious time and energy into this.
