Pastor Ed’s Letter for January 17, 2024

Pastor Ed

Congregants, Friends & Members:

A huge thanks to Rev. Dr. Randy Moody for the inspiring sermon on Sunday! God is full of surprises!!! And life is also full of surprises! Because of what God does for us through Jesus Christ, I echo the words of Paul in Philippians:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4.6-7).

Day to day living can easily be influenced and affected by anxiety. Jesus told us to not worry about tomorrow. Life tosses so many things into the air and we have no idea where they might land.

Life seems to be a constant wandering in the wilderness with glimpses or periods of enjoying the promised land of the day. And no matter where the travels of life take us, God is guiding us through valleys and onto mountain tops; through the foliage of fear to the highlands of hope!

Sunday, Lely said thank you and good-bye to Bob and Glenn who brought a world-class approach to music ministry. Their dedication and love of the Lord was evident as they ministered to each of us through music in worship. Our prayers are with them as they enjoy a welcomed retirement on the Jersey shore!!

Sunday, January 21, Lely welcomes Carl Granieri as interim Music Director as well as Tim Halverson to the pulpit for the 10:00 am service! Lely is grateful to Rev. Melana Scruggs for assisting in arranging pulpit supply! And Lely’s Personnel Team has been working tirelessly to ensure the right people are in the right place from Sunday to Sunday!

Finally, be sure to register for the 50th Anniversary Dinner scheduled for Saturday, February 3 at New Hope Ministries on Davis Blvd., beginning at 4:00 pm. The Anniversary team, led by Bonnie Kluttz, is working overtime to ensure a memorable evening!! And then be sure to attend the 50th Anniversary Worship Service on Sunday, February 4th at 10:00 am!!
