Newsletter Week of January 14th

  Pastor’s Piece
Today is the day!  I can hardly believe it, but today I am boarding a plane, and then another plane, and then another plane… and sometime tomorrow I’ll be in the Israel!  It is all still an incredibly surreal feeling right now.  Please pray for me and for those in our church family who are also making this pilgrimage- Randy and Helen Gross, Betty McAdams, and Barb Biermen.  I am looking forward to coming home next week and sharing our experiences with you. You will be in good hands this week during my absence.  Rev. Patrick Moore will once again be preaching at Faithbridge.  Many of you will recall that he preached in August while I was recovering from surgery.  You will be blessed by the message he brings. I can’t wait to see you again soon!
