Farewell 2018!

"But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and striving forward to what lies ahead," Philippians 3:13

I hope you had as wonderful of a time as I did, worshipping and celebrating Christ the Savior on Christmas Eve. I hope you were encouraged and able to be an encouragement to someone else. Thank you to the many hands (I feel like the whole church showed up to help with setup!) that came out over the 3 days to help setup, serve during and teardown everything for Christmas Eve. I enjoyed watching you all have times of fellowship with one another and getting to know one another better.

But now, we are staring down the beginning of a new year. 2018 will soon be over and 2019 will be underway. There is nothing that any one of us can do to change anything that happened in 2018. But, we don't have to let the things happened in 2018 dictate what will happen in 2019. 

Join us this Sunday as we talk about forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead! We will share in the Lord's Supper and remember the only thing in the past that can change the future. I hope to see you this Sunday morning!

Grace & Peace,
