Good Morning NPG.
Our prayer is that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day celebration. For believers in Christ Jesus, the day was more than about food; it was a time to reflect on how good the LORD has been throughout the year.
God is so good and deserves our praise of Thanksgiving because He continues to give to us. His best gift to us was Jesus, so it is fitting that we now prepare to celebrate His coming to earth to save us. This will be my last Christmas as pastor, so it will be special for Ann & I.
But the New Year will bring new blessings. Our church will be assigned a new mission. Pastor Elect Scruggs brings to us new innovative ministry visions. His church planter and ministry consultant expertise are needed to move to the next level. But he will need our help to bring the vision to reality.
This will take time, but your help will be vital to the success of the church mission. Nothing can be accomplished without your support. First, he will need your encouragement. Let’s let him know we are willing to work alongside of him. Get to know him personally. Make coming to church a priority.
Second, many of the projects will require increased financial support. Our tithes and offering will be needed as we also continue to reduce the church mortgage at the same time. I am praying for your increase and as the LORD blesses you, bless the church.
Finally, be willing and available to work. Several self-help projects are being considered. This is a way to save money and to bond as we work together to build the Kingdom.
Again, my wife and I are not stepping down; we are stepping aside. We are going to support Pastor Scruggs, Lady Di, and their family in every way possible. And we are asking you to join us as we move forward. Love you all.
Sowing His Seeds While it is Day,

Faith Pledge: A “Faith Pledge” is not a promise of funds; it is believing that God will provide extra above and beyond our income. We are praying for the increase of every member. Continue to look for God's expected blessings. Our goal is to be debt-free by December 2024.
