Spring is here!
The flower bulbs are coming up. Our windows are opened. The birds are singing. And spring has arrived! Spring always is a welcome reminder to me that death does not have the final word. New life is always part of our story. As we approach Easter, we look forward to celebrating the HOPE of new life together. Who might you invite this year to Easter?
One of the incredible things coming out of COVID is that everyone has walked through the same experiences. Everyone has suffered grief, loss, loneliness and despair. Everyone has become weary of distancing and "normal" being cancelled. And everyone is much more open to hearing how Jesus makes a difference in your life. Who are you sharing that with in these days?
Thanks to all of you who were able to join us for the Society Meeting at the end of February. We were thrilled to welcome so many of you on zoom, and in person at the church. During the Society Meeting, I shared a slide show of the ways God was faithful in 2020 in and through West Morris Church. If you'd like to see that, you can download it from our website at westmorrisfm.org/society.
We also would like to welcome our new Board of Administration for 2021 including Jeff Drummond (delegate), Rachel Mohlman (reserve delegate), Lana Reeser & Michelle Bailey (at-large members), Lou Mingous (outreach), John Miller (missions), John Marble (building & grounds), and Diana Hedgspeth (treasurer). Thank you for your faithful prayers for them, as well as our leadership staff, Pastors Kevin, Sarah, Brett and Kristen.
We look forward to seeing many of you on Sunday, March 21 as we gather back in our building for in-person worship at 10:30 AM (ET). For those of you more comfortable with online worship, our 9:30 AM (ET) online service will continue.
And one final note - don't forget to SPRING AHEAD this Saturday!
Blessings, Pastor Kristen
