Dear brothers and sisters at Haven,
My first month as your pastor is officially in the books. I can say with all sincerity, it has been a joy. We had the pleasure of welcoming you into our home and you so graciously and generously welcomed us at Haven. And what a welcome it has been! Thank for helping us move in, giving us lawn equipment (since we had none), a number of gifts cards, bringing by some especially good banana bread, and more.
Over this past month, I had the joy of preaching my first two sermons at Haven, beginning a sermon series through the letter of Colossians, and we just ended our study in the evenings through the book of Jonah. I hope you have been blessed as much as I have in studying God’s word.
With this new month we have much to look forward to. We will be relaunching home groups and youth group, beginning a new members class, and having Trunk or Treat. Great opportunities for discipleship and gospel ministry. I’m looking forward to it.
In light of all these opportunities for ministry, will you join me in praying for each of these and that the Lord would continue His work at Haven? Thank you again Haven and I’m looking forward to serving with you this month.
