Pastor Elaine Hower


Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

Thank you for your patience while you waited for this, the first newsletter of 2019. Outside of the normal hustle and bustle that the birth of Christ brings to our church office, several funeral services and other unexpected commitments postponed the delivery of the newsletter.

Author Heather King offers the following prayer for the New Year:

Still in one peace,

A Prayer for the New Year

Lord, whether we’re leaving behind a year of joy and blessing

or trials and difficulties, we pause to give thanks.

We thank You that You are always with us every single day of

every single year.

Please remind us of Your presence in the year ahead, even

when life is busy.

We are so thankful that we serve a God who makes things

new and gives us the grace of fresh starts and new beginnings.

Be glorified in our lives this year.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
