From the Pastor
With summer brings end of school, graduations, vacations, and family fun. At WPC, we want to be a part of that! You’ll see in the newsletter this month that we have some exciting events planned for all of our congregation! What better way to spend time with your family than to engage in God’s Word as a family? We have several opportunities for that this summer.
Worship will be enticing for members of all ages. Vacation Bible School this year is going to be a 24 hour VBS BLAST! Nancy Johnston and her committee have worked hard to ensure that people of all ages have opportunities to learn and grow and fellowship with one another.
How are you spending your summer? Are you spending your summer with God, or is God on vacation? These are things to think seriously about as we plan our vacations and times away. I highly encourage you, as a family, to seek ways to worship and praise God on your vacations, but also remember that your church family misses you when you’re away!
In July, we have a very special opportunity. On June 2nd, Dr. D. will celebrate his 60th year in ordained ministry. On July 20th, we will have a special celebration to honor Dr. D, and give him a chance to praise God for the opportunity of being called into the ministry. Recently, Dr. D. wrote on Facebook what this day means to him. Here’s what he had to say:
I would like to share a very personal event coming up in my life. On June 2, 2014 I will celebrate sixty years as an Ordained Christian Minister. My ordination took place in my home church in Catasauqua, Pennsylvania on June 2, 1954. Each one of you have played some part in touching my life and ministry and allowing me to touch yours during those years, and I am most thankful for each of you. Also, on June 16, 2014 Nancy and I will celebrate fifty eight (58) years of marriage. I met Nancy coming to my first call as Assistant Pastor of her church in Hollis, New York City. God has blessed us both in so many ways, as she shared in my (our) ministry almost from the beginning.
Here is the remarkable part of this story: Dr. D. and Nancy could celebrate just about anywhere, but because of his relationship with WPC, he has chosen our church as the place for his celebration. As pastor, I am truly humbled and honored that Dr. D. thinks so much of me and our church that he wants to do this. It’s an honor to have him as a mentor and friend, but it’s an even bigger honor to share this day with him.
On a more personal note, many of you have asked about my husband’s return plans. We are hoping Ashley will be back with us in July. Please continue to hold both of us in your prayers as we navigate the end of this deployment, and look forward with great anticipation to the homecoming. Of course, we will share in the joy of Ashley’s return with the congregation. Hopefully more information about his return will be made public in the coming weeks.
