Christ the Common Bond

Helen and I have been pastors at Christ Church for one month now. In one month, we have met many new faces. We continue to work at putting names with those faces, but each face has been very welcoming to us. We have enjoyed your smiles and each of you sharing a little of your story with us to help us connect. We look forward to continue to get to know each of you.

In one month, we have seen great passion for ministry and reviving the world. I had a wonderful experience with the Saturday Morning Men’s Group. We have met some of the kids from Fairmount Pines at Endeavor, Summer Games University, and Elementary camp. We have been praying for the first Mission Team sent to Haiti with us here and are looking forward to hearing all about what God did on their trip. We anticipate hearing and seeing more as we move into the fall.

We want to thank everyone for their kindness and patience in the midst of this transition. We feel like we want to learn everything quickly, but we also feel that we do not need to hurry because we will have plenty of time to be in ministry with you all here at Christ Church.

We have found that Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:20 are so true. “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Everywhere that we have gathered with others we have felt the presence of our savior with us. Christ is the common bond between all those who believe.

Thank you for welcoming us to this new home for serving together.

Pastor James
