Cheryl and I are excited to join you at Pleasant Hill Brethren in Christ Church during these days of transition. We want to thank you for your warm welcome around the worship service and fellowship meal last Sunday! We look forward to getting to know you and joining you in anticipating the bright future the Lord has for Pleasant Hill BIC.
Some of you may be wondering how available I will be since I am a commuting pastor. This is the 4th church I have served in this way. The arrangement has worked well. I travel to the church on Sundays and during the week as various events and meetings are scheduled. So those are the best days to set up any additional meetings. If I am made aware of a hospitalization or other special need, I try to come as soon as appropriate and possible in each case. My telephone number and e-mail address are listed in the church bulletin. Please feel free to contact me at any time – call, text or e-mail.
The Bible gives us a description of the early church in Jerusalem: They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. (Acts 2:42,47)
Like the early church, we are to be devoted to the ministry in such a way that believers are built up and the community is attracted to the love of Christ. As your pastor, I will be serving alongside you to assist the church in moving forward in this transitional time.
Christ is working in our midst. Let's be open to all He has for us in these days.
