Pastor’s Post – January 2016

From the Pastor

The New Year Brings a New Worship Opportunity

As we begin a new year of worship and work here in Levittown/Massapequa, I am looking forward especially to the re-launch of the Sunday evening service at our Massapequa campus on Sunday, January 3.  This will be a less formal worship opportunity in which we will be inspired by music written in recent years and performed by local musicians.  Our music leader will be Stella LaMassa, a member of Massapequa Church.  Stella was instrumental in a similar service that was held last year at Massapequa for several months.

The new service will begin at 5:30 p.m. and last for about 45 minutes and will continue through June.  Young people and children will be encouraged to remain in the service.  Afterwards there will be an hour of youth activities and Christian Ed programs for young people.  If there is sufficient interest, I will lead a Sunday School class for adults.  We can do some Bible study and also discuss current issues from a Christian perspective.

This new Sunday evening service will allow families to come together for worship and to deepen their understanding of their faith in a two-hour period at a time of day that will be less likely to conflict with other activities.  If you are a regular participant on Sunday morning, you may wish to attend both morning and evening worship, since each will be different, or you could continue to come to the morning service and then attend the Christian Ed hour, which will begin around 6:20.

I encourage you to think about friends and relatives who might be interested in attending this type of service at this time on the Sabbath.  Let’s not hide our new candle under a bushel basket!  -Pastor Knowles
