Message from Our Senior Minister
Grace and Peace Be Unto You,
Like last year, the emphasis on preaching and teaching is prayer. Our new theme for 2020 is “Embracing Prayer’s Power!” The emphasis and theme are inspired by Psalms, which is the biblical text.
I am looking forward to us engaging in Psalms, which will instruct, inspire, and challenge us about the power of prayer. Having access to God through prayer and being recipients of prayer is such an amazing and mysterious gift to us! Continued blessings to you and thanks for all that you do!
God Bless and take care of your health!
Health Emphasis: Improve your self-awareness (mind)!
Monthly Emphasis: Annual Mission Awareness, Annual Leadership Workshop, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday/Holiday, State of the Church Address
Monthly Reading: The Beloved Community by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Point to Ponder: Refuse to grant permission nor grant unwarranted conscious energy to those things, situations, and people you have absolutely no control over.
Make this a daily practice.
