On behalf of the Church Board and Congregation of First Christian Church, I am writing to express our appreciation for your willingness to accept God’s call to the Missions field.

We believe that the call God has placed upon your life, coupled with your willingness to serve is an answer to prayer as we can read in: Luke 10:2 – He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Thank You For Music Ministry

I wanted to take a moment to send you a brief note to express my personal appreciation for your ministry in music this past Sunday.

I truly felt that as you ministered, it was not for “entertainment” purposes, but you had a desire to lift up the Lord, and point people to the giver of your talent. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear

I trust you are doing well in the Lord today!

I wanted to take a moment to send you this letter of encouragement today as you walk through this moment of difficulty in your life.  Notice I used the word “moment”, because I believe we are often captivated by what seems to be difficulties that will last “forever”, yet in light of eternity, it is just a moment!

Adopting Couple Encouragement

Dear (members),

I just wanted to write you today to let you know that my prayers are with you both as you await the arrival of the newest member of your family.  Children are one of God’s greatest and most beautiful gifts, and the opportunity to be a parent is truly a blessing.  I must stress to the both of you that patience is essential in a situation such as this.

Dear

The moment you wake up each morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists in shoving it all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. -C.S.

Thank you for taking on the responsibility of being one of our church’s  small group leaders.  I know that many times it is a thankless job and that often it is hard to mobilize others into accomplishing the goals we have set. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
