Late December 2017 - A Note from Pastor Steve
I know that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has done this, so that all should stand in awe before him.
Merry Christmas! Now that we are in the liturgical Christmas season (which runs from Christmas through Epiphany -- January 6), I can write “Merry Christmas” without a hint of guilt that I am jumping the gun. I want to thank each of you who participated (in any way) in our Christmas Eve services at Revolution and at Keystone. Christmas Eve gives us the opportunity to greet people who might not enter a church on any other day of the year, and I thank each of you for your warmth and welcoming spirit.
On Sunday, we will be returning to our regular Sunday morning schedule and celebrating worship through the tradition of Lessons and Carols -- scriptures describing the joy of the Christ child entering the world interspersed with (mostlY) familiar hymns and songs.
Then, on January 6, we will begin a new sermon series: “Hello, My Name is . . ..” Throughout the first four weeks of the year, we will be discussing different elements of the life and ministry of Jesus. It should be a great way to welcome the new year as well as a terrific opportunity to invite a friend to join you in worship!
My prayers are with each of you as the calendar turns. This has been a year of changes, surprises, tears and laughter. At every turn, God has been beside us to comfort us in our pain, laugh with us in our joy and encourage us in our questioning. May the months ahead fill us with a desire to continue to be God’s people in our communities.
Peace in the new year and in every year,
