Pastoral Epistle, May 15, 2024

Beloved Congregation,
Greetings in Jesus!

“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.” Isaiah 66:13

Praise God for His tender mercies. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness! He comforts His people as a mother comforts her children.  We draw strength for each day from God’s Word. He has promised that He will comfort us. 

We had a great Mother’s Day special service:  We appreciate the panel mothers who contributed to the occasion and made it special in the service. Thank you to all parents for encouraging our Sunday school to bring glory to God through their talents.  Thank you to our leaders who patiently trained our children. May our Lord richly reward their faithful ministry.  Special thanks to the men’s fellowship who hosted a sumptuous lunch.

This Sunday:  May 19th pastor will be on vacation.  Tina George will lead the service.

Dr. D. Mohan Selvaraj will be the preacher. We will not have Holy Eucharist this Sunday.
