Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.

Psalm 107:1-2 (KJV)

"O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good:  For his mercy endureth for ever.  Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;"

We have so much to be thankful to the Lord and to praise Him for His goodness.  Even during turbulent times, the Lord continues to take care of His people.  Thanksgiving Day is just a reminder that we should be thankful every day of the year.  This world will continue to get worse and worse, but we must continue to be grateful for our many blessings.

I solicit your prayers for our new moderator, Rev. Standley Gillings, who is stepping into this role due to the death of Moderator Keith Blunt.  Moderator Blunt was a son in the ministry, and he will be missed for a long time.  Please keep the Blunt family in your prayers as they adjust to this new reality of life.

The year is swiftly coming to an end, and we are looking forward to the new year with much optimism.  A Watch Night Service is being planned for the end of the year.  Mark your calendars and think about joining us as we watch the closing of one year and the arrival of the next.  May the Lord richly bless all of you for your faithfulness.

Blessings and Be Safe,

                Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
