Pastor Tim’s Notes begin 3/5/2021
 
Cornerstone of Faith BLOG’s last posting is  February 2021, “A Day of Love.”   It has been my honor to share my thoughts, joys and struggles over the years but especially how God is always there; showing me the way through my life as I draw closer to Him.

Pastor’s Note 4/16/21

Special Occasions

Milestones and momentous occasions are important to celebrate. Most of us do this in our lives when we celebrate a birthday, gather for a wedding or celebrate the life of someone that has passed away. It is a way to “mark” that important event in a person’s life.
 
Ancient Israel used to do this by the placement of “standing stones” in certain geographical locations where they met God or an important event took place, like a victory over an adversary or the crossing of the Jordan River as the Hebrew people entered the Promise Land.
 

Pastor Installation Invitation

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Sunday marks an important occasion for our church. On Sunday, April 18, at 9:30am my Installation Service as the next pastor of Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church will take place. It may seem a bit anticlimactic since I have already been serving as the pastor since November, but it is one of those “standing stone” moments when we give thanks to God for His provision and guidance and ask for His blessing as we move forward together for His Kingdom.

It should be a grand celebration with pastors and elders from the Presbytery of San Diego participating along with many of my family and friends in attendance. We will be having a taco bar lunch after the service so come hungry and help celebrate this next chapter in the life of our church.

Blessings

Finally, let’s all give thanks to God for His guidance that led to this moment and pray for His blessings, as we move forward together.
 
Hope to see you this Sunday.


Pastor’s Note 4/9/2021

Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate our risen Savior Jesus Christ at our Easter service that we held last Sunday at the Lindo Lake Pavilion. Over 80 people attended and a number of guests and first-time visitors were there. I am glad that the park allowed us to use the park’s facilities free of charge and they were grateful that we followed the COVID protocols that are currently in place. In the near future we are going to have a Lindo Lake Park cleanup to say “Thank You” for their generosity. If you are ever at the park, be sure and thank a park employee!

 

This Sunday, April 11, I am looking forward to welcoming everyone back to our church campus for worship in the Sanctuary at 9:30am. It will be great to be back together and I am looking forward to my second worship service with you all. Know that we will still be following COVID protocols, wearing masks, taking temperatures as you enter into the building and asking that you sit in designated spaced areas with only those from your household.

 

Also, mark your calendar for the following Sunday, April 18 at 9:30am when we will have my Installation service as the next pastor of Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church. I am excited that this moment has finally arrived and it should be a grand celebration with pastors and elders from the Presbytery of San Diego participating along with many of my family and friends in attendance. We will be having a taco bar lunch after the service so come hungry and help celebrate this next chapter in the life of our church.

Know that I continue to pray for you and for our church.

Hope to see you on Sunday,
Pastor Tim

Happy Easter! 

Thanks for joining us this Easter Sunday. I hope that you were able to see the joy that we have for our risen Savior Jesus Christ and that you were able to meet a few people that you hadn’t met before. Our desire each week is to know Christ a bit more, to make connections with others and to create a community that together, seeks to make a difference for God’s Kingdom in our world.
 

Indoor Service Resumes

Next week on Sunday, April 11 at 9:30am, we will be back in our church sanctuary for worship. Although we will be socially distant and wearing masks, it will be good to be back on our church campus. We hope that you will return to worship with us again.
 
Have a great Easter Sunday and I hope to see you again.
 
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
