"I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation; I will praise Thee among a mighty throng."  Psalms 35:18

Patricia and I want to thank everyone for all the kind words, your expressions of appreciation and even your gifts to us last Lord's Day.  We were both quite overwhelmed.  I can say without hesitation that i have never been treated with such kindness from a congregation in all my pastoral ministry.  Your encouragement means so much to both of us and we can't thank you enough.

I also want to thank God for all He has been doing here at GBC over the past several months.  As my son recently said, the church is the best it has ever been.  God has brough men and families who hunger for His Word.  I treasure the teaching time in the Sunday School hour where we can cover a wide range of subjects in answer to your questions.  There has been a real sense of God's presence in our worship services and our prayer meetings have been times of refreshment before the Lord in the middle of the week.  They have become a bright spot in our church's life.

In light of these things I want to express my optimism for our future and ask you for your prayers that God will continue to do a mighty work in this place!  Pastor
