A Word from Pastor Ed November 15, 2023

Dear Congregants, Friends, and Guests:

Being Satisfied when Bummed Out, was the theme for last week’s sermon. We have all experienced being bummed out for a variety of reasons. While the Preacher in Ecclesiastes says that all is vanity, i.e., meaningless, Jesus gives us a hope that sustains us and carries us through the bummed out moments of life!

This Sunday, the sermon will be based on Ecclesiastes 11.7-10 and 12.1-8. The theme is Being Satisfied with our Age. At what age were you at your best? We will look at how we can be satisfied at our current age no matter what age we might be!

We welcome to church leadership as Elders, Nancy Copeland, Bette Decoteau, and Cyndi Hauck. We welcome Maxine Kilburg, Val Hofmann, and Dinah Bampoe as Deacons!! Please keep them in your prayers as well as the church as we move forward!

The next coming weeks are filled with a number of events. On Friday, November 17 at 11:00 am , Lely Pres will celebrate the life of Cindy LaCoe. If unable to attend in person, Click Here to Livestream the Service.
