Dear NWPC Members and Friends,
What a joy it is to be serving as your Transitional Pastor! What a warm welcome we have received in the church and in the community. Your Transitional Team worked so hard to get us here all the way from Phoenix, AZ. I am thankful to know that the deep kindness of Southern Hospitality is alive and well at North Wilkesboro Presbyterian. We have felt embraced as part of your church family. Thank you!
This Time of Transition is an exciting time to be the church together. During this time, we will explore and celebrate where you have been. We will take a wide-open look at where you are now, and we will listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit as you are being led into a future where God is calling you to go.
On July 1, the Elders of this church have committed to begin 40 days of prayer for the church. I invite you, as you are able, to make an intentional commitment to pray daily for this church and to listen attentively for God’s holy guidance. The work of transition is going to take all of us together, and it begins with prayer.
The prophet Jeremiah writes, “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the Lord,” (Jeremiah 29:11-14a)
Let us enter together into this sacred time of seeking,
