A Note From Pastor Tom
From the Pastor’s Pen
School is almost out and the days are getting hot. That means Summer is here. Annual Conference, VBS, and officially becoming GMC are all just around the corner.
I love Summer, because the town comes alive. People are out working in the yard, going for a walk, or just sitting outside enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know folks better. Something as simple as a handshake and a brief conversation are often the first steps to building long-term friendships. Who knows where God may allow those first steps to take you?
Summer also means activity. I know some of you will be running at a frantic pace to keep up with all of the demands. One thing I’ve learned about Summer is to slow down and enjoy the times of quiet, and to find Sabbath throughout the week. We often overlook opportunities to stop and smell the roses, feeling that we must rush on to the next thing that calls for our attention. While we can not help the pace that Summer brings, we can keep ourselves healthier (both physically and spiritually) if we find times to slow down for a little bit.
Summer is also a time for vacations. While I miss seeing you all every Sunday, I know that family is also important. As you travel, I would encourage you to either find a church to visit on Sunday mornings or to at the very least stop and take a few minutes as a family to thank God for the time away and the blessings He has given to you. When you come back, I look forward to hearing how you found God in the midst of your time away.
Summer can be a wonderful time of year. I pray that your summer is safe, full of blessings, and a time of joy.
– Pastor Tom
