"30 + Years...To God Be the Glory!"

Dear Saints of God,
It is with great joy to write this letter to you for today. Since we were last together, we have experienced so many blessings from God, in one way or another. Each day, God has blessed us with new mercies; every morning, something new was made available to each of us. For that, our hearts should rejoice in the many wonderful things we were able to experience.
2019 is here, and there are so many blessings that are awaiting, and are available to us. And as a church, I am excited about what God is going to do at Beth Eden.
This leads to the focus of this letter. If God is going to do great things for us, we must be willing to engage in a total relationship with God. Our spiritual mindset is to be on the things of our Lord. In order to make that happen, we must live lives of consecration.
In the past years, on the third Sunday of January, there has been a special service of consecration. The focus had always centered on the music ministry of the church. When it comes to the music of the church, it is only one aspect of ministry. If we are to do great things for God, the WHOLE CHURCH is to be involved. Therefore, on next Sunday January 20th, we will have one (1) worship service so that we as a church can consecrate ourselves before the Lord, for service to and honoring the Lord!
I need you, and you need me. And we all need each other. Together, we can do great things for the ministry of Beth Eden. In addition, I believe that the Lord will be pleased with this joint effort. Again, next Sunday—Consecration.
On the 21st, we will have our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Worship Service. Alderwoman Carrie Austin is our guest speaker for the occasion. The time is 10:00 A.M. This service is for the glory of God; thanking God for Dr. King.
I Love You, I Really, Really Do!
