Dear Trinity MCC
Well I am delighted to have been appointed by the Office of Church Life and Health as the Provisional Pastor for Trinity MCC Gainesville.
So far my time has been blessed with laughter, a beautiful spirit, good worship and enthusiasm, as well as amazing gifts, fundraising, a sense of excitement and amazing people. A pastor could not wish for any more on the beginning of a new journey with a Church. The purpose of a Provisional Pastor is multi-faceted, but one of areas is to help the church to honor it's history and work with them to look to the future; this can only be done together though. So, as I said in my initial letter to the congregation I am excited by the:
Did you know on my first full day in the office we received a call from a family of 8 who needed food and we were able to help in a small way by giving them food from the Food Pantry?
Did you know this past Sunday we blessed over 50 quilts that had been made by the Quilting Bee - a group who gather to make quilts that are given to the homeless?
These are two examples of the way a difference can be made to the lives of others - not through proselytisation, but through action and love. I cannot wait to see what will happen next - we are the Church alive!
Please know that if you would like to meet up for coffee or a chat, you can call me and I will set that up. I am very keen to get to know as many people in the community as I can, from there we will know each other a little better and hopefully be able to achieve great things together.
With many blessings and much love
