OCTOBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: For the first time in my ministry I was at a complete loss for words.  We had just finished the worship service for Marilyn’s and my 25th anniversary of service here on September 10 – a service, I might add, that was full of surprises from beginning to end – and…

SEPTEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: On Sunday, July 20, I had the privilege of announcing some pretty exciting news at the beginning of our worship services.  And that was the news that Pastor Michael Feldmann had accepted the call we extended to him to serve as our Associate Pastor specializing in youth and family ministry.  I…

AUGUST 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: As a pastor, I find myself getting asked lots of questions.  Some of those questions are deeply theological, like: “Where did God come from?”  Or, “Could you please explain the Trinity to me, how God can be three yet one?” Or, “Why did Jesus have to be both God and man…

JUNE AND JULY 2017 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: This coming May 29 is an important day on the calendar.  For starters, it is Memorial Day, that day in which we remember those who gave their lives in service to our country.  It’s also the day that Marilyn and I will be leaving for a much-anticipated vacation that will take…

MAY 2017 NEWSLETTER

February 2017 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: I was really looking forward to what I was going to be doing that morning.  It was Thursday, January 5 and our church was in charge of the give-out at the Food Pantry.  I always enjoy those days because whatever you do there, you know you’re helping other people and most…

January 2017 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: It was a brutal battle – one that could very easily have gone either way.  The participants were well-equipped and well-prepared to engage the enemy.  Spears and arrows were sharpened; cannons were loaded; the troops were summoned and assembled for what may go down in history as “The Battle of the…

DECEMBER 2016 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: As I sit down to write this opening article for this last newsletter of 2016, it is the morning of November 3.  I would normally wait another week or so to do it, but something happened last night that is worthy of my time to write it now.  Amid all the…
