Dear Saints of God,
I thank God! I thank you! These words express my gratitude for the wonderful celebration and recognition of my 36th year as your Pastor. God is praised for blessing me with the spiritual strength, the physical strength, and a determination to serve the Lord to the best of my abilities. I praise God for you, the congregation of Beth Eden for allowing me to be a part of your lives. Your graciousness has allowed me to share in your homes, and with your families, and because of that, we have found strength and love that God has given us to be brothers and sisters in Christ. I am forever grateful. I also thank the entire church for gifts, many cards and expressions of love shown to me for my anniversary. All I can is to God be the glory!
In looking ahead, I am excited for what the Lord has in store for us. With hopes and prayers of coming out of this pandemic, I pray that we will be able to bring forth again ministries that are important in the life of the church. In order to make this happen, we must continue to be diligent in our safety precautions with the masks, social distancing, and washing hands. We as leaders in the church are to be dutiful in providing direction in leading this congregation through the challenges of the omicron variants. So, please pray for the church and the leadership of the church.
On Sunday, we will observe Mother’s Day. Whether biological, adoptive, aunt, sister, brother, neighbor, or friend, God has placed in our lives a person or persons who have filled the role of mother for us. Let us extend our gratitude for those individuals, who have played such a significant role in our lives. Though there are some, whom you may feel have not fulfilled that role, I remind you that our God is a mother for the motherless. And because of that, you are here.
If your schedule is free on Wednesdays, you are invited to share with us in person for our Worship on Wednesday. This worship service W.O.W., has the focus of providing a time of worship during the mid-week. This noon day service provides an opportunity not just for our congregation, but for our community, to worship together. If you cannot be in person, tune in either by YouTube or Facebook. We want to be a blessing for you and provide a mid-week spiritual fill up. The time is 12 Noon – 1p.m. In addition, Bible Study will continue on Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Please take advantage of these worship opportunities mid-week. Enjoy the Lord in worship and service.
I am so glad that our Seniors on the Go, will be able to reconvene on Monday May 8th. This will be their first-time meeting together since the beginning of the pandemic.
