Senior Pastor's Message

Thoughts on Lent and God's Love

My warmest February greetings to you, in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Traditionally, February is the coldest month of the year.  So far, we have been blessed with a very mild winter.  Let’s hope it doesn’t get too cold to enjoy a nice brisk walk outdoors.  Fresh air and fresh faith just seem to naturally go together.

Since Christmas and New Year’s are past, activities at Church Street have picked back up.  Please remember to  come to Sunday School and 10:30 am worship and, by all means, bring someone with you.  Evening meals, activities and Bible studies are fun, interesting and rewarding.  It all starts with  a fellowship Breakfast at 8:30am.

Our 2016 Confirmation class began January 10.  We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful, precious children.  Two girls make up the present class.  Pray for the class as they learn about church, citizenship in the Kingdom of God, salvation, grace, and maturing in the spirit of Christ.

Easter comes early this year on March 27.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10.  Lent is an important time of personal spiritual preparation as we hope to have the fullest, freshest, powerful and joyous Easter experience possible.  Please plan to come to our special Ash Wednesday service at 6:00 pm, February 10th, for a meaningful worship  message about the elements of Lent and for the traditional receiving of the ashes upon the forehead of believers.

Valentine’s Day is February 14.  Don’t forget your sweetheart, family or that special person or persons who have blessed your heart and life in so many wonderful ways.  So often the “thank yous” and the “I love yous” we meant to give were forgotten.  Let those who count know it.  “God is love.”  Let’s all try to do a better job of expressing our thanks and love to God and to one another.

Seek peace.  Ask for and offer forgiveness.  Remember, one of the most powerful ways to tell someone you love them is to say, "I forgive you."  John 3:16.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yours in Christ,

Bro. Jim Meadows
