This Sunday marks the beginning of our ministry year as a community of faith and we will be launching our theme – Renovation: Rebuilding for Purpose – and starting a series in Nehemiah as part of that. I am excited to share what I believe God has placed upon my heart for us as a community faith from Nehemiah’s experience. In fact, as is so often the case, I have been freshly challenged by God’s word and hope that you will experience the same! Let me encourage you to join us online or onsite this Sunday and, if you are unable to, to listen to the sermon podcast this week.
I also want to foreshadow a major communication that will come out next week. It will be sent to everyone for whom we have an email address but will be in the E-news and on our website if we don’t have your up-to-date details. This email (and it will be a long one) will contain important information about our finances, our plans for Sunday services, an invitation to help us reimagine membership, and an invitation to discern God’s voice to us as a community of faith. It will be an important step for us this year and wanted to encourage you now to be on the look out for that and be engaged in the process!
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
