From Our Music and Family Minister
I hope this week has been a great time for all our church family as you celebrate Thanksgiving. This is one of my favorite times of the year. It is a great time to get together with family and friends and enjoy spending time with each other. Not only am I blessed with a loving family, but I am also blessed with a great church family. I know that several of my articles in the past have dealt with my church family; however, I can never stress enough the importance of being a part of one. They are always there during the good times and during the bad times.
A strong church family can help you through many seasons of your life. They can help you through the loss of a loved one or sickness in your family. I have seen this firsthand in several situations. When I was in need, my church family was there. I have had out-of-town relatives comment on how impressed they were when they came for funerals or to visit someone in the hospital on how well we were looked after.
Not only can a church family help you in times of grief, more importantly, they can help during a time when we as Christians turn away from our heavenly Father. We have a great pastor and I am so blessed to serve with him, as well as the past staff members from whom I have learned a great deal. Even though we have a strong leadership, I have had so many other church members help me during times of weakness and doubt. I must admit, sometimes it is a little overwhelming with the number of adopted parents I have obtained over the years. Looking back, I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.
It is my hope that your mind is full of great stories about your church family. I also hope as a church member you take the time to be a Christian example to someone in our church. Find someone to take under your wing with whom you can laugh and cry. There is no greater blessing than knowing that you have helped make someone’s life better in a time of need.
