Dear Church Family and Friends,
We hope and pray that you are safe and well on this warm Friday here in Key West. It is New Year’s Eve so please be careful if you are out and about this evening.
This Sunday, we will be sharing Holy Communion together as we begin a brand new year. My sermon is titled, Running To Win. The Scripture lesson comes from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 where the Apostle Paul talks about running in such a way as to receive the prize. He talks about purpose, discipline and focus on setting a goal and completing it all the way to the finish line. What are your goals for the new year? What would you like to change about your attitude, behavior, habits or relationships?
The Pastor Nominating Committee and the Committee on Ministry have asked our Session to call a Congregational Meeting for Sunday, January 16 at the end of the service. The PNC and your current Transitional Pastor have reached an agreement on the Terms of Call which will be presented at the meeting. Our Executive Presbyter and Stated Clerk, Reverend Dr. Daris Bultena will moderate the meeting as approved by the COM. The Session has approved the Congregational Meeting.
Please keep in your prayers this morning, Barry Gibson and Beth Childress.
I hope and pray that this new year brings you excellent health, a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and a commitment to making the world a place of equality, justice, compassion, peace and hope to a world desperate for good news.
Happy New Year,
