Pastor's Letter by Bro. Rudy

​August 2018


And Now Some Good News


Another police officer killed.  That was one of the new reports the morning I write this.  In fact, the report listed several police officers who had been wounded or killed this summer.  That was just one of the troubling new reports this week. 

I believe it is time for some Good News.  That’s what the Church of Jesus Christ is supposed to be sharing with the world – The Good News of Jesus Christ.  During the month of August and early September, I will be preaching a series entitled; “And Now Some Good News!!”  We have been entrusted with the Greatest News in the history of the world.  It is the Good News of God’s loving salvation in Jesus Christ and God’s presence with us in the Holy Spirit.

You will find a list of the messages in this newsletter.  There are times when we need to remember the amazing news of God’s love, God’s presence and God’s power.  Would you join me in praying for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit?  And would you join me in praying for that person you know  has drifted away from God’s love and family? 

As students and teachers are getting back in school, we are preparing for Back to Church Sunday.   The date is September 16.  This would be a good time to ask God to direct you to persons God would have you invite back to Church.  It could be some you have not been seeing or someone who you know is not presently connected to a local church.  Begin to pray for them.     

See you Sunday as we celebrate God’s Good News.
