TOGETHER we can do more for the LORD!

“Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below; praise him above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.” Thomas Ken 1674
 
When we stand and sing the Doxology TOGETHER, we are praising for all the good things God has done in our lives!  God has blessed each of us and our congregation! As we move into the final weeks of this year, what a beautiful vision it would be for our congregation to stand TOGETHER as one. Especially giving praise for all God has done for us over the last twenty months.
 
One of the reasons to give thanks is your faithfulness in giving the last two years. In March 2020, we had no idea the chaos that was about to transpire. Yet, despite the numerous uncertainties and global gloom & doom proclamations, our congregation has been writing a faith story of trusting God all the more. There are days I would like to shout this praise from the Shalimar rooftop!
 
We have reasons to praise God for leading our congregation to be spiritually stronger two years later. God’s provision has been steady and even abundant. There are positive and visible signs almost every day around the Shalimar campus of God’s goodness. God is to be praised for this faith story being written before our eyes!
 
Imagine a decade from now, our congregation reflecting on these years of chaos, and giving thanks to those who withstood distractions, stayed loyal, and kept giving of themselves no matter the ominous swirling winds. We will never forget these challenging years and how God inspired our people to greater faithfulness!
 
On Sunday, November 21, our church will be asked to stand TOGETHER and make financial commitments for 2022. In preparation, I invite each of us to pray and respond to God’s goodness. (a card is enclosed that we will use to consecrate our commitments to the Lord)
 
Let us all stand TOGETHER as we move forward into 2022, trusting God!
 
TOGETHER we can do more for the LORD!
 
Shalom,
Philip
