135th anniversary celebration

Our friend JaNae Francis did a great job in publicizing the  upcoming celebration of a great milestone: 135 years of ministry here in Ogden. you can read the article here.

Over the years the community has changed, the faces in the pews have changed, even the building has changed, but the one constant has been people who try to answer God’s call to serve and love. We build on the past endeavors, and look forward to the missional activity that God has planned for us.

Sunday at 3:00 pm, I hope to see a lot of familiar faces, and perhaps some new faces.

God told Abraham that he would be blessed so that he could bless others. (Gen 12:2-3 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”)

As we build on the past and  look towards God’s future we  remember His promise: “always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.There is surely a future hope for you”  (Prov 23: 17b-18a NIV)
