From The Pastor


Dear Church Family, 

Several years ago I had the wonderful opportunity and blessing to drive across country with our two oldest grandchildren. We experienced a lot of things together and talked of many subjects. As we were driving through Kansas we passed some Indian teepees and Brayson wanted to know about how the Indians and the “cowboys” really got along.


I proceeded to try and give them both a history lesson and began to share about our “forefathers.” Suddenly Brayson stopped me and asked, “Papa. How could you have ‘four fathers’? I only have one.” I laughed so hard, tears came to my eyes.


We are entering a special time of the year as we celebrate “fatherhood” in this month of June, and our freedom as a nation next month in July. I hope I never forget Brayson’s observation.


But even more important than that, I hope I never forget that we can celebrate because men [ and women ] of faith and vision were motivated to stand in the face of oppression and resound with lip and life: “Give me liberty or give me death.” And so our country was birthed.


During this time, let us indeed celebrate, but let us also experience a revival of what we should be celebrating - Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; and let’s reflect afresh on our ‘fathers” and “forefathers” who helped make it possible.


We love you.


Pastor Dan and Rebecca.
