A Greeting Message from the Pastor’s Desk: A Congregational Update for the New Program Year 2023
-As We stand on the edge of a new year and look back on the one we completed, there is so much to celebrate about what God has done! And there is so much to look forward to in the year ahead
To My Beloved Second Missionary Baptist Church Family:
What Another Year It’s been!
As 2022 draws to a close-“The Year God Focus”, it gives me great honor and joy to pastor the most impactful church on the planet-as we celebrate 6 years of marriage between pastor and God’s people. As we behold the season of Advent and look forward to another exciting new year, it is with thanksgiving and praise that we offer unto the Lord the best adoration that we have for bringing us through to another year. We are wrapping up our 2022 “church business” and strategically making plans for seeking ahead to the needs of the Kingdom for the next appointment year of 2023. I thank you for your unwavering patience, faithfulness and fortitude over this most challenging time frame.
As we embark upon 2023, I have embraced the theme: “The Year-#GOD” Matthew 6:9-15 (NKJV)
As we approach the beginning of a new program year, I am excited about the many ways we can all participate in the work of the Kingdom. Our focus ministry agenda will be three-fold: Service, Strategy and Structure. The aim is for you to discover and find your niche so that you can become and stay involved in the life of this great church based on your unique spiritual gifts, alone with the 4 “T’s”: time, talent, treasure and testimony..
I’m trusting and believing, and I ask that you join me in the certainty that God is with us always and will give us the strength to meet these days ahead in the comfort of a holy and certain hope.
SOLI DEO GLORIA!!!
Glory to God Alone
