Pastor’s Note 4/29/21

“Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to Me.
God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.”

                                           Matthew 19:14

“Chapel Time”

On the last Thursday of every month I have the opportunity to have “chapel time” with the children at our church’s Children’s Center. It is a special time where I get to sing, pray and give a short talk with the kids and their teachers. I always love being able to share with them a little bit about what it means to love Jesus.

It is also fun throughout the rest of the month to see the children play on the playground and shout out to me “Hi Pastor Tim.” I love that I get to be their pastor.

I am not sure what impact these chapel times have. I suspect that the children don’t remember much of what I say but what I do want them to remember is that they have a pastor that loves them and wants them to love Jesus. When I see them playing, when we have our chapel times, I want them to know that there is a pastor and a church that loves them and wants them to know and love Jesus.

Our Time Together

It isn’t that different for all of you that are reading this email. I love that I get to be your pastor. I hope the times that we have together, whether it is on a Sunday morning in worship or at a Bible Study or at a meeting or on a walk or when we are having a cup of coffee, that you know I love being your pastor.  More importantly,  I want you to know and love Jesus. If I can point you in some small way to love Him more, I will feel that my role as a pastor is fulfilled.

Know that I love you and that I pray for you every day!

See you on Sunday.
