November 2017

It is difficult to believe that 2017 is already coming to a close, but as I think back over the year, there are many reasons for me to be thankful. I am grateful for a loving church family to minister alongside in these challenging days we are called to live in. Thank you for assisting so many of our families during their time of grief in the loss of a loved one or in their struggle with personal needs. I appreciate how seriously you take the admonition of the Lord to comfort one another in times of affliction; 2 Corinthians 1:4 (HCSB) He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

I am thankful for your commitment to faithful giving in support of Kingdom work. We have been blessed to pay off our indebtedness this year, support mission causes around the world, and provide additional resources to assist Harbor Church in their mission to reach the people of Cape Cod with the Gospel. Thank you for being so generous in your giving.

I am thankful for the support you give to the church staff. While none of us are perfect, a fact we readily own up to, your encouragement is so helpful. Thank you for encouraging our volunteer staff as well. We have so many wonderful people giving their time and energy to the ongoing work here at Victory and in our community. The fact is, we are able to do the ministries we provide as a result of your efforts in the power of the Lord.

I am thankful for another year of being with you as Pastor. Your loving support is just amazing! Thank you for understanding my need to be with my family during my father’s illness. As we come to his final days here on earth, I am so thankful for the opportunity to be with him, my mother, and my family in Florida. So many of you have been especially kind as expressed your love to me. Thank you, also for your support as Syble has walked through the eye surgery necessary to correct the issues with her eyes.

As you take a moment or two to consider all that you have to be thankful for, I pray you will, “Be still and know He is God” (Psalm 46:10). May the time you have with family during the Thanksgiving season be a blessing to you.
