Pastor Appreciation #3
Have you ever heard the saying, if you find the perfect church, don't join it because you will surely mess it up! Kinda funny but oh so true! There is not a perfect church around..... but there are lots of great churches, that seek to draw people to Jesus, to challenge you in your faith and provide an opportunity to Worship the King of Kings all that while staying true to God's word. Our church is not perfect..... our church is group of people all ages, all styles, all financial backgrounds, ecclectic as my husband would say.... a church filled with people doing life together, learning daily to surrender and be obedient to God.
I love that our church is growing, we have new families and new babies almost monthly - something to be excited about for sure! God has been blessing our church.....in the midst of that blessing, we have had our share of struggles and trials, but we have faced them head on.... and that is my appreciation post for today. I have been apart of many churches through out my years of life, and I have never seen a staff and leadership team that is so willing to deal with conflict, instead of running away. We have a great team of leaders and pastors that seek to deal with conflict biblically....though not perfect (just like our church) they seek to bring resolve even in the most challenging cases. They encourage the believers to talk to the person in which they have conflict with.... but not only do they encourage us to do that but they model it themselves.
Thank you pastors and church leadership for all you do!
