Elder’s Corner

January 2019

Elders Corner 

Wow. Time to mark a new number on all our correspondence. It’s always hard to remember to do that as we start a New Year. Always seems like the last year went by too fast. Especially as we look back to see if our accomplishments measure up to our goals for the year. We can use the admonition of scripture to always forget what has past and look forward to what is ahead.
I am not one to make resolutions but try to plan for what lies ahead. James tells us to plan for each day with the Lord and let tomorrow come, then plan for it. As a church body, we are preparing for 2019 in our leadership roles.
I will continue to be the chairman of the elders, Mike Smith will be vice chairman, and Don Hansen will be secretary. Mike will also serve as chairman of the congregation.
Thanks to our very capable staff, they are preparing the calendar of events for the year with much prayer and guidance from God. If you have special events that you would like to participate in, please let us know.
We all look forward to a blessed and Happy New Year as we fellowship together and serve our glorious Lord and Savior.

The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.

I Timothy 5:17
