From The Minister’s Desk 
2019!!! Wow, where has the time gone? Seems like yesterday we were thinking about Y2K, and the year 2000, now here almost 20 years later we celebrate the new year of 2019. I guess time flies when you are having fun! A brand new year! Couple that with Ecclesiastes 1:9 ” . . . there is nothing new under the sun,” and we spin into wonderment about what the new year will bring.
I find it is a great time to evaluate, make changes, do things differently. So what are some things that might need changing? One thing I always look at is how do I make my devotional life new and fresh. My reading, writing, and memorizing all need to be changed up to keep them fresh and new. Prayer life is another area that we can evaluate and make changes. Up the amount, change the time frame, to journal or not.
Another matter I like to keep in front of our people is their commitment to being here on Sunday to worship God together as His family. Often times we opt for something other than being here to be part of the family of God that functions with the Gospel here in The Dalles. We are counting on you, and so is the community. Consider this new year on being more faithful to our time of worship. The body here needs each and every part, to do their part, to make sure the gospel gets out!!! See you in ’19!
Because of Him,     

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”


II Chronicles 7:14
