From Pastor Davies – 8/23
There is a sense of excitement around MPC as a new season of church activities is resuming. It is so wonderful to hear again the merry sounds of children outside my office window as PDS is in full swing. Rally Day/Connection Sunday is fast approaching – September 11th. A new member class for adults will soon take place – also on September 11th. Feast resumes on September 14th. We will resume two services of worship at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. on September 18th. And committees and organizations that have taken a summer break are gearing up for the Fall.
MPC may be in a time of transition between installed pastors, but the ministry of the church within the congregation and community continues with energy and enthusiasm. And that’s a good thing! Because, during a time of transition in pastoral leadership, there is often the temptation by church members to “slack off” in worship and Sunday school attendance and giving of time, talent, and treasure. That doesn’t seem to be happening here. Praise God!
Please know that I am honored and blessed to be serving MPC as your Interim Pastor. Do call upon me if I can be of help to you in any way.
Have a blessed week and see you in worship this Sunday.
