Pastor's Message
Dear Friends in Christ,

Our focus as a congregation this past year has been We Are Church Together. I give thanks for the ways we are able to Welcome, Worship, and Witness together. The Spirit can do much more with us together than alone!

In 2019, we're adding this theme: We Are A Church of Stewards! And together, we'll explore and grow in what it means to be managers of all of God's gifts! We're just finishing the Christmas season and have celebrated the gift of a Savior once again. We can begin the New Year taking inventory of our blessings and gifts and seeking guidance on how best to use them all!

When you think about it, we have a lot to take care of that belongs to God! So how will we care for one another? And our gifts of faith? And the partnerships and mission entrusted to us? And even the good earth by which God gives and sustains life? Those are some of the challenges we'll take up-with the Spirit's guidance-in 2019! God bless and be with you in the New Year!

-Pastor Paul

John 4 = Jesus and the Woman at the Well Bible Background: In John’s Gospel, Jesus has just had a short, odd conversation with Nicodemus-an insider, leading to the claim of John 3:16. Now, he has a unique conversation with an ‘outsider’ of outsiders: A Samaritan; a woman; of
