Dear St John’s Church family,

Our theme this past Lenten and Easter season was “Jesus Up Close and Personal”  It seemed appropriate to focus on knowing Christ better after a long difficult year. In drawing closer to Jesus we recognize that God has never failed us, and He never will. We have hope in Him for the future because we have a history with God. It’s amazing, but even with all we know and all we’ve experienced, God still surprises us. I’ve been deeply encouraged by the faithfulness of our church. I would say St. John’s UCC is bouncing back nicely in our post pandemic world. There has been a wonderful graciousness in the midst of unsettling and turbulent changes. As we continue to press forward, we’re beginning to see many more people return, and even new faces coming for the first time. I love seeing both every Sunday morning. I know God is working, and I shouldn’t be surprised. I pray that this is only the beginning to what I hope and believe is a powerful movement of God’s Spirit in our community. There are lots of exciting things on the horizon. The closest one being the Confirmation Ceremony for young Courtney Lacy on May 1st. followed by the National Day of Pray in the town square on May 5 and our special day for Mom’s on May 8th. I am looking forward to all that God will do as we gather as a church and a community to exalt the name and power of Jesus. I hope you can join us. If you can’t be in attendance physically, you’ll be able to attend virtually on Facebook. There are many other opportunities coming up with our 3rd Sunday Sing, Breakfast & Blessings and Armed Services Salute for Memorial weekend. I’m excited for what God’s going to do in the month of May. I’ll be preaching a message series entitled “Broken for Jesus”. It’s going to be a great month!

 

In Christ,

Pastor Wendell
