Encouraging note for week of February 7, 2021.
As Michael had previously stated the elders and ministry staff have been taking turns writing encouraging notes to the congregation. Sometimes this has been difficult. Besides going through this period of COVID with its difficulties Linda and I have experienced a period of sad news which also proved to be rather discouraging. But it was during those times that I was most encouraged by all of you with your beautiful and loving thoughts of encouragement by your comments, cards, emails, texts, and phone calls. Thoughts and encouragement which reminded me to be thankful for what I have. To be thankful for my church family. To be thankful to God for his church who is there encouraging me. While we continue to write these notes to encourage you, you have been encouraging us as well as others. As the writers of the New Testament have said, I urge you to continue in this that God maybe praised. So continue to encourage others. Thank you.
