Pastor’s Note

Psalm 145:4 One Generation shall praise your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.

All of us influence people one way or another, good or bad. However, in the life of a Christian we should always remember to do our best to leave a good influence on those around us. The words we speak, the acts of kindness we show, the boundaries we set in life. All of these things impact those around us.

In Christ alone,
