Thank you Berean family!

Mary and I want to thank our Berean family for the wonderful day of celebration. These past thirty years have been in the will of God and He has truly blessed us to have had the opportunity to minister among you during these years. I want to thank Pastor Bill for the wonderful message, and Pastor Eric for his kind words. We also deeply appreciate the gift that you gave us. Thank you Sam and Debbie for the wonderful meal. Your labor of love is always appreciated by the entire church family. This was such a special day for us and on behalf of all my family we express our love and gratitude back to each of you. I am always overwhelmed by the mercy of God and for His abundance of grace that He showers on His unworthy people. May the Lord be praised continually. I never cease to wonder at God's grace that captured me 46 years ago in Saginaw,  Michigan.

My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless this church and all of our dear loved ones and prepare us for eternity. Live each day as if it is your last. Love one another with the love of Christ. Labor to be pleasing to God in everything you do. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath. And finally, learn the beauty and peace of dying to self. 

The summer is upon us. On Wednesday night Pastor Eric is starting a series of messages on the book of Titus. Come out if you can.

God bless you all,

Yours in Christ,
