The Pastor’s Word – Thank You
Category : Uncategorized
Peace and Greetings, in the Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through whom all things are possible! We’re three years into something at one point I couldn’t conceive. The plan was set and the preparation complete, but life changed dramatically. However, the promises of God never change and here Grace UCC stands.
I’m so grateful for the confidence of my pastor, The Rev. Dr. Ozzie E. Smith Jr. and Covenant UCC; The Rev. Tom Norwalk, our Association Minister; The Illinois Conference President Rev. Dr. Jorge Morales and the past and current Ministers of Church Vitality and Stewardship: Rev. Dr. Melbalenia Evans and Rev. Dr. David Russell. God has sent many others who have nurtured and supported our ministry.
We continue to thank our God in heaven for your kindness. And for the very special people of God that show up each and every Sunday: I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH! You are my anchor when I feel like I’m drowning. You are my angels when I don’t think I can go any further. You are the blessings that God has sent for this season and for that I am grateful! Continue to stand with me and bring others to Christ.
