Reflections from Pastor Norma


August came and its almost gone. Lori sends me a nice reminder: Time for our September Reflections. Thank you.

I love the rhythm of Church life.  We are now entering the 13th week of Pentecost and will celebrate a Joint Worship with Pastor Nua and the Samoan Congregational Christian Church of New Hope on September 8th. Bring your friends and celebrate with us as we make ready for Fall.

September always heralds “new starts” for school and for churches.  After a time of rest and relaxation, we are ready for renovation  of mind and heart. We embrace  the idea that each day is an opportunity for a “fresh start.”

One of my favorite Scriptures is from Lamentations 3:22-25. “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Indeed, through my personal bible studies I learned that if God could perform miracles 5,000 years ago, He certainly is able to do so today. Are we equipped to receive His miracles? Like all good things,  it takes preparation!

God is not looking for perfect people.  Remember Moses, King David & Peter?! But, God is looking for people who are able to carry out His will. We encourage you to join us on September 15th at 9:30 a.m. when we convene to discuss another vital Bible topic to enrich our personal lives.  I have 2 or 3 more books left, so please reserve a book for our next session.  Read Jonah Chapters 1-3.

Yes, September is upon us; Let us put on the armor of God’s protection as we sail into Fall. We guarantee, if you begin with baby steps, the bountiful blessings will be just what Jesus wants to give you!

Faith on the Journey!

I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  (Psalm 121)
