From Pastor Dave

Dear Friends, 

This Sunday is an important milestone in our partnership. This week we will receive new members of New Springs Community, and formally begin our partnership as one congregation. 

If you're interested in learning more about membership, and haven't yet heard about the process, please let me know. This Saturday, December 12, at 8:00 a.m. I'll be hosting an event to share a conversation about membership and to let everyone know how the process is working out. If you'd like to know more but can't attend, please let me know, and we can work something out. 

Change takes time, and each of us has a different pace. While Pastor Corey and I, and the leadership of our congregation, have no problem challenging the church to the commitment necessary as followers of Jesus, we also understand that this is a journey. We will continue to invite you to the journey of faith in a way that is gracious and permissive, without attempting to hide the commitment that is also part of the journey. We trust that God will lead you at just the right speed for you. 

The events of these next weeks are a beginning, not an end. Please be praying for New Springs Community. Be praying for God to guide us faithfully. Be praying for us to respond faithfully to God's call. Be praying for opportunities to share the love of God through Jesus Christ. Be praying for opportunities to invite people to connect with us. 

Thank you for all that you do to love and serve Jesus.
In Christ's Love, 

Pastor Dave

Thank You!

Bring Christmas Presents this Sunday

Thank you, thank you, thank you, all you generous people! All the ornaments are gone!

Please bring your gifts this Sunday, December 13. We will deliver them to Meadow Lane next week. Be sure to attach the ornament tag to the gift.

Also, if you would like to wrap your gift, that would be great.
