A Pastor’s Perspective

Last Thursday evening, our church was recognized at the awards dinner for Phillips Theological Seminary’s Remind and Renew conference. We received their “Faithful Partners Award for Congregational Giving”. The recognition comes for our giving to the seminary continuously for the past 53 years, providing funds to help the seminary train women and men for ministry. Those attending with me included Nancy Williams and her sister Linda, Denise and Jamie Jenks, and Les and Joyce Brown. Our congregation has a long-standing connection to Phillips, and our support is still continuing to make a difference for the Church and those looking to answer God’s call to ministry.

In other news….

Our men’s group met last Sunday morning here at the church for breakfast and conversations of introduction. There were 13 men in attendance! What a great turnout for this gathering as we seek to chart a course for a greater presence and participation from the men of our congregation. The group will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month at 9 am. A special thanks to Brett Moler, Mark Reid, Tom Hill, and others for cooking breakfast and organizing this gathering!
