As we approach the end of the year I want to thank you for who you are as a congregation. You provide countless hours of ministry in the name of Jesus Christ and you impact thousands of lives throughout the course of the year. The good news of Jesus Christ is being offered to many people as you make his love real to people on a daily basis. Again, thanks so much for your ministry and I look forward to continuing to do ministry with you in the year 2017.
