Galatians 3.27 (CEB)
All of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Sunday will be something truly special. The church will be decked out in its finest raiment. I am thankful to the many folks that have dedicated their time, thoughts, and energies to LPCC over the course of this year; from ensuring people received invitations to cleaning, painting, carpeting, and the under the radar stuff that just seemed to “magically get done.”
The celebration of LPCC’s 90 years of ministry will surely be wonderful.
This is the nature of the church. Building on our strengths that have been endowed by our creating God, we have pulled together to be part of what God is doing in our celebrations, preparations, and expectations. Uniquely each of us have ben gifted to do something matchless in this world. We don’t have all the same gifts and graces, but together we have so much more. And to God I am thankful that in God’s wisdom, we are created to be “me” and when a bunch of “me-s” get together they become a “we.” And it is in the “we” that great things are done for God’s glory alone.
Sunday, we will celebrate the many ways that LPCC has been an active part of God’s kingdom over these last 90 years. As we celebrate and honor our past, the past will enrich the present and make fruitful the future. Because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever and since forever has not arrived just yet, we’ve got some wonderful work to do and celebrate.
Grace and peace,
Husband, father, minister, child of God, follower of Jesus Christ writing in the context of La Porte Community Church
