Hello everybody! I am looking forward to meeting everybody in the coming months. It was a delight to be with you on January 19th, and I am grateful and excited to accept the call to be your pastor. I will be traveling the first half of February, and I covet your prayers for safe travels. I will be praying for all of you, and if you have specific prayer requests, please feel free to email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to my prayers. I’ll be with you all again in worship on February 23rd, and then I expect to dive in to our ministry together. In the first few months, I am looking forward to meeting with each of you individually and hearing your stories of how you came to be part of this church, your joys and concerns, your memories of the past and your hopes for the future. My cell phone is (805) 448-9641 and you are welcome to reach out any time after February 23rd! Text, email, Facebook, phone calls, in person, video chat, however it works to connect, let’s do it!
A good friend of mine once told me, “I don’t want to be church without you.” So I pass that greeting on to you: I don’t want to be church without you. I’ll see you very soon!
Blessings and Joy,
