Elder’s Corner

February 2020

Elders Corner 

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Solomon advised us that there is nothing new under the sun. But he did not tell us that things would never change. 2020 is, for us, going to be a year of change. We are beginnings of new flooring through out the building. The enjoyment of the new furnaces and the anticipated enjoyment of A/C this summer. The new chairs to replace the pews will be here in a few days. Different programs and schedules to help us grow together in fellowship and worship are being planned.

The biggest change comes from our senior minister, Dan. He has given us his retirement letter. It is with heavy hearts that we have accepted this change. He and Carole have faithfully served us for 10 years and have developed many relationships with us. Dan has reached retirement age and they are planning to move, along with Grandma, to Florida to be near their family. The date of their planned move is September 1. As they move forward with those plans, we wish them God’s blessing. They will be missed by us but, I know, will enjoy the closeness of family.

This announcement brings us to beginning to search God’s plan for a new senior minister for us. I would ask each of you to be in prayer as we seek guidance from Him. We need to wait on the Lord as He supplies us the strength for each day.



The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.

I Timothy 5:17
