Message from Our Senior Minister
Grace and Peace Be Unto You,
May the Spirit of Christ sustain you throughout 2020. During the sermonic moments on Sunday (January 5th), I spoke about the importance of trusting God; in fact, the subject was, “God can be trusted.” Consequently, we are testimonies of growing to trust in God because of our experiences in 2019. Whether the experiences were major or minor, “the good Lawd” was faithful. God’s faithfulness continues in 2020. Therefore we know that God can be trusted through whatever, wherever, whenever, and forever!
It is incredible what the Lord is doing through this church family. You are an integral and needed member in enhancing God’s Kingdom on earth through your stewardship of volunteerism, financial contributions, participation in ministry, and your prayers. May the Spirit of Christ ever bless and keep you all along your faith journey!

Prayer: O God, our sustainer and keeper. Grant us a Spirit that as oppressed people, we may live without bitterness and resentment. May we rise above our trouble through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Point to Ponder: Unfortunately, there are people who have been and are oppressive, disingenuous, cruel, and dishonest; always been like this. Know that they are tools of evil – ask God to be merciful towards them.
