Church family,

Welcome to Spring! I was hoping for a warmer start to the new season! Oh well. I will say that we are blessed to live here in NWO. Carmela and I enjoy the pace of life and the setting here – and the change of seasons (whenever they come!)

Last week we had the chance to spend a few days in Florida. Yes, we lived there for almost 6 years, but after being there last week we are grateful for being here – now – at this stage of life. We spent time with family, which was nice since we live a ways from most of them.

During our years of ministry, there have only been a short few years that we even lived within a couple hours of family. Most of our time has been spent away. At times it can be difficult to be away. But we know that our lives are in God’s hands. We know that we can be in no better place than where He has called us to be.

I am reminded that as children of God, our lives are not our own. We have been bought with a price. We are His. We were meant to live as He intended. I am thankful that no matter where He has us, He is faithful. We don’t have to worry. We can trust and rest in Him.

1 Thessalonians 5:24a (ESV) He who calls you is faithful… 

Praise God for who He is!

Here at home, we recently heard news of a local medical provider making an agreement with a local abortion provider. Currently, there is a petition against this move and if you are interested in signing the petition, see the link provided below.

Walking with you,

Pastor Brian
