November/December 2023

Dear Friends,


Fall is here and the holidays are right around the corner!


We have been on a journey through the Fruits of the Spirit, Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control. We are reminded that each one is rooted and grounded in the first, Love, the all-encompassing Agape love that Jesus shows us how to live out.


As we approach some of the most beautiful, meaningful, and special seasons in the life of the church, let us seek out ways to share that love with each other and with those around us. Let us seek out opportunities to be together in worship, small groups, fellowship, and service to our church family and beyond. Let us live out this agape love together.


The seasons of Thanksgiving, Advent, and Christmas are also rooted and grounded in this agape love. My prayer is that we will take every opportunity to prepare our hearts, minds, and spirits to fully experience the beauty and meaning of these upcoming seasons. This is especially important as we continue into this time of transition and hope to share in time together with our sisters and brothers in the Belford church.


So, let us journey together, grow in our faith, renew our commitment to each other, and to the mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world. Let us share the light and love of Christ with all we can.


The prophet Micah reminds us of how best to be on this journey, in Micah 6:8,


“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”


I am greatly looking forward to walking with you through these wonderful upcoming seasons!


Let’s go!


In Christ’s amazing agape love,


Pastor Kevin
