From Your Pastor's Heart
As Pastor Kirk has been taking a much needed break this week, the task of writing the article for the worship guide fell to me. This is not something I’ve had the chance to do before, so I wanted to begin by saying thank you to each one of you here in the body of PBC. It’s hard to believe Cathy and I have been here for ten years now, but we are so thankful to the Lord for the pleasure of serving with you here!
You are such a loving and caring body of believers, and it shows every week. From your constant prayers for us and our whole family, to your kind thoughts, cards and gifts celebrating our anniversary with you. We have been beyond blessed by your support and love. Thank you so much from the depth of our hearts!
I love being here, leading you in worship, directing the choir, orchestra and handbells. I love hearing you lift your voices to God in praise each week. And, I love how you care for one another. I pray the Lord continues to give us wonderful times of worship together until the day He comes to take us home with Him!
I’m also grateful to see how you, as a body, join together to serve the Lord in things like our VBS program. I’m astounded at all the ways you work together to make that week such a success each year. Not only do you serve there, but whenever there is something to be done, so many of you jump in to help. This is a sign of a healthy church body, and again, it makes it a joy to get to serve alongside you. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve at PBC. May the Lord continue to grow each one of us to be more like Christ each day and year!
