A Note from Pastor Austin
December 4th, 2018
I hope this first week of December is going well for you all. I want to share some things with you all this week for which I am thankful. I think it’s important for us to regularly remember the blessings that God has shared with us and this week I am feeling especially grateful.
-I’m thankful for the many volunteers who came this past Saturday (and many other days) to clean up our parking lot, do yard work around our campus, and decorate our sanctuary for the Advent season. It all looks great. Thank you all for your time and energy.
-I’m thankful for Bill Phillips and family for sharing their “Christmas is In Your Heart” concert with all of us this past Sunday. It was a great way to start the Advent season. I love seeing our community gather together in moments like these.
-I’m thankful for Andrew Smith and the children and youth for all the time and hard work they’ve dedicated to their Christmas Worship Service. I’m looking forward to this service coming up this Sunday, December 9th at 10:00 a.m.. Be sure to join us.
-I’m thankful for RPC. This community is naturally welcoming and hospitable. Time and time again I witness the ways that you all go out of your way to welcome new visitors to our services on Sunday mornings. I am grateful for your kindness and generosity.
What are you grateful for? I’d encourage you to give thanks this week for the places and people in your life that God has given to you as a gift. If you have the chance be sure to tell those people that you are thankful for them!
Happy Advent friends and I’ll see you all on Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
