WORDS FROM THE PASTOR

One week blends into the next and we start to forget how many weeks it’s been. It started off as an experiment in living confined. I didn’t seem all that bad at first. But then we started missing, how should I put this, living normal. We couldn’t help ourselves, we wanted to break out. Now, at least for me, our new normal is rubbing off on us and we accept much of this is the new normal.

It’s not so bad when we realize that we seem to have more time to do the things we have been putting off for so long. I talked to a company that produces hand made doors and windows. They told me they are busier now than ever before. They love working with wood, as that is their passion in life and they are ‘living the dream’.

Maybe we need to start living our dream. What is it? How can you embrace it right now. And then, let it drift you off into the future. I want to challenge you to live the dream, but also to live the dream of getting closer and closer to God. We talk about connecting with all our friends, even from a distance. How about connecting with God. After all haven’t we sung for generations, “What a friend we have in Jesus“.

Think about, open your bible and live your spiritual dream.

Pastor Robin

**There are no scheduled events at our church for the foreseeable future, but what can come at this time is we can call each other just to keep our faith and connections in our faith healthy and well. Soon we will be getting ready to get back to normal. But right now, stay home and lets stop this pandemic.**

 

Today we sent out our first Youth Vlog.  It is the beginning of a new ministry here at the church. If you know someone who would like to take a look, here is the link: MBC Youth Vlog

Be sure to forward the link to any youths. It is going to be our first step in getting a youth program off the ground. 
 


This coming Sunday our title will be:  “What do They Say About You?”  It will be coming to you next Sunday morning.  Read the passage ahead of time and the you will be ready to engage the conversation. It is based on the next nugget found in Phil 2:19-24.
