Come and See

Having spent the past fifteen years as the Senior Pastor of this church, I have learned a great deal about people that become members of the church. In this timeframe I have run the gauntlet of emotions and I am positive I have put members through the same gauntlet of emotions in their lives. One thing I can tell you up front…I am by no means a perfect man, nor am I a perfect pastor, I will (and do) make mistakes. I love being a pastor and I love the people God brings in my path to minister to.

What can you expect if you visit us for a worship service? Just about anything, and I say that in a good way. We are a group of imperfect people, meeting and worshipping the perfect God. We worship God in a reverent and humble fashion, but we also have fun, not silliness, in our worship. I desire for people to smile (even laugh) when God moves. You can expect to hear the truth from the Word of God (the Bible) and I will not water it down. This means you have the possibility of being convicted, angry, sad, hurt, helped, healed, glad, and cut by this Word. Every time we gather my prayer is always for God to meet all of us at our deepest need and He will if we are willing to be open, honest, and give Him full access to our heart.

In my time here, I have laughed with just as many as I have wept with. I have buried many people ranging from church members, family or friends of church members, to people I had never met before. I have seen babies born, children grow up into adulthood and start their own family, and families join and leave the church. As mentioned earlier, I have run the emotional gauntlet (and still do) in my calling as a pastor.

So, come and join us. Laugh and cry with us. Let God speak to you as you worship with us and as you get to know the wonderful people that worship here each week. I am not perfect, but I will love you right where you are at this stage of your life. I want you to meet Jesus and fall in love with Him…He is the life changer you need.
