Pastors word



Holy Father,

Protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.                                          John 17:11b


Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,


There is a quote that reads, “There are two things you give your children.  The first is roots, the other is wings.”  Roots - the identity and the connection to the life blood.

And Wings – to fly where the Holy Spirit takes one…


There comes a time when each of us must let go.  A time in which to practice trust in Jesus, who has promised to be with us always, and whose prayer, is that we be one as the Father and he are one.


It is our deep privilege to be rooted in Our Savior Jesus Christ and connected so as to draw our life from him. And it is in this life received, that we take flight, and enter into a life long journey with the one in whom we live, and move, and have our being.


May God continue to bless you on this journey as you discern how the Lord is calling and empowering you to live a life worthy of your calling.


I remain yours in Christ,

Pastor Rita Augsburger
