Dear Mayor White,

On behalf of the staff and congregation of First Christian Church, I want to congratulate you and wish you all the best on your recent election victory.

We are living in tumultuous times, and it takes great courage and sacrifice to be willing to step forward and lead as we navigate these rough waters.  Our prayer for you as a congregation is that you can not only lead by example but also surround yourself with those who would give wise counsel.

Dear Michael,

On behalf of the congregation of FCC, I want to congratulate you on 20 years of service to the church as a member of the Church Board.

Dear Senator Rogers,

Please accept my congratulations on your recent election victory.

You have accepted a position of leadership in a very tumultuous time.  As Christians, we are called to be “salt and light” to the world around us, and I want to encourage you to take this mandate seriously as you make decisions that will affect not only how we live today, but how our children inherit the world that we are to leave them.

Dear Teachers,

Another school year has begun, and I want to take the time to encourage you as you begin again in the classroom.

As their teacher, you have the unique privilege of being the hands and feet of Jesus to your students… and for some, you may be the first person who has ever done so. Your students will come to you from all walks of life, and I want to encourage you to take the time to get to know them and to get to know their stories.

Dear

It’s that time again!  I know it must seem hard to believe, but Summer break is over, and it’s time for School!

Well, as I write those words, I know some are filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation of all the new school year holds, and others are not nearly as thrilled as they see the challenges ahead. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

 

Letter of Encouragement to be Christ’s Hands, Feet and Voice!

Greetings in Christ!

A singer and songwriter by the name of Gordon Jensen wrote a song some years ago which mentions the fact that you and I as Christians are the only “Jesus” that many people will see.

No, this does not mean we are Jesus Himself of course. We know He is Jesus all by Himself, yet it should be our goal and desire to be just a bit more like Him every day by sharing what Christ is like. We are to be “lights” in a dark world! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Letter of Encouragement to Get Involved in Volunteer Ministry

Greetings in Christ!

As we move our attention away from the “lazy, hazy days of Summer”, and begin to focus on the Fall Season, I wanted to take just a moment to remind all of us of the tremendous value there is in living lives of service for the Lord in ministry. Many people wait until school starts before they once again turn to the church both to have needs met, as well as to be on the giving end of seeing people ministered to.
