Welcoming all to experience, connect, grow and share the love and hope of Christ
What we wear says a lot about who we are. I don't always wear the best clothes which is somewhat intentional but also just who I am. When you visit the office I might be in shorts and a fishing shirt (today) or in a suit depending on the work of the day. No statement to make, no desire to make a point just who I am as a Pastor and person. Growing up there was a lot of emphasis on wearing our "Sunday Best" but when we left church people were not giving their best outside the building. Families were torn, people had no respect for one another, and the gossip mill never ran out of business. Over time we felt forced to ask the question, what good is it to wear our best but not to act our best as believers. The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Philippi "For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having righteousness of my own that comes from the law but one that comes through faith in Christ" (Philippians 3:8b-10). When the best is gone our faith remains. What we wear may say a lot but it never reaches the heart of who we are. When Paul writes he emphasizes that when all has been stripped away the essence of who he is in Christ remains. Over the years I've had several interactions with people who attended church because I wear jeans. Do you want to know the funny part? The first Sunday I wore jeans only happened because I didn't have any clean khakis! That's it! But it was one of the most profound lessons in ministry, what we wear says a lot. Some heard they could attend church even when they don't have "church" clothes. Some heard their heart mattered more than their appearance. Some heard it's ok to be who you are. Some started telling people it's ok to come to our church because the Pastor wears jeans! It's still ok to wear the best but most importantly we come as we are with what we have. What we wear says a lot, not just about who we are but also who Christ is in us. When all else fades, he remains! Keep The Faith, Tommy

This past fall our Church Council approved our 2019 Charge Conference reports, which celebrate the ministry that took place in the past year as well as set our goals and plans for the upcoming year. The attached document includes a synopsis of those reports, which we approved at the time. We made an oversight after the approving Church Council meeting and failed to send out the full report, so we are sending it out now for anyone that is interested in reviewing it.
