Dear Church Family,


I would like to take some time to talk with you about seasons. The Lord leaves a glimpse of His plans all throughout nature. The peeks into His glory grant us a deeper outlook on life. This morning it was 34 degrees outside. On Saturday morning it was 75! Just five days later we have seen a difference of 31 degrees at the sun’s rising! Without these changes in the climate, our vegetation would not get the opportunity to shed off the old leaves and fruit in order to grow fresher, newer leaves and fruit. It is a natural pruning process, so to speak. 


In our own lives we go through season. Some people are here for life, and some for a season. Though they may be gone now, God used them for His purpose in that season. Now we are facing another change. We have another opportunity to rest and prepare to bear much fruit to the glory of our Lord!


Church family, you are the children of God! You represent Jesus Christ, who is our HOPE. You have been diligent to look to Him in this time of change, and many of you have stepped up in order to edify the Body of Christ. This has been so encouraging for me! For that, I thank you! Let us keep in mind that seasons change. Let’s also grow more sensitive to the Spirit that we may bear much fruit for the Kingdom!


22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. - Galatians 5:22-24


Below, I have listed the name of our speaker for October 29 and a brief bio. I will strive to do this each week to keep you all updated. Also, the process for the Pastor Search Committee has commenced! The ways that you can help most in this time of transition are as follows:


Pray for the leadership team. (Staff & Deacons)

Pray for the local body of believers. (Total congregation)

Maintain with excellence any volunteer commitments.

If you haven’t already, make a commitment to serve. 

If you have ideas about ministry, submit them to be prayed over by leadership for potential enactment. 


I thank God for each of you! We have a hope and a future. Jesus is that hope and future. Look to Him! Let’s serve Him with clean hands and a pure heart! I love you all! May the peace of our great God and Savior consume your hearts! 


Your brother in Christ,

Pastor Ace

Guest Speaker Oct. 29, Bio:

Brian Fossett was radically saved in 1992 and surrendered to full-time ministry immediately.  During the past two decades he has served in many capacities, including full-time pastorate.  He has served nationally as the president of the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists, where he is currently serving his third term.


Brian has a good view on the local church and has a deep love for churches and their pastors.  He believes church should not be boring but exciting, motivating, and inspiring, while remaining genuine, authentic, and true.  He believes we should come to church to worship the King.  His goal is to allow God to use him as an instrument to encourage, stir, and ignite the church of Jesus Christ.  The aim and focus of Fossett Evangelistic Ministries is to see souls saved and grow in their salvation to become strong, healthy Christians.
