Dear Bethany Family,
Liz and I cannot say enough “Thank you’s” to everyone who has contributed so generously to our 27 years at Bethany Church. I will always treasure the Family Gathering that we experienced together this past weekend, as well as the many emails, cards and other messages we have received. I can only apologize for not responding to each of you individually. You have given much more to us than we could ever have given to you. We are truly blessed by God and by God’s people!
As we prepare for the next chapter in our lives at Roser Church, I echo the sentiments that the Apostle Paul expressed to his beloved church at Philippi:
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:3-6)
We are blessed to live in an age when we can stay connected, even at a distance, so I will be following your progress in New England. And, If you would like to receive updates from me in Florida, please just send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will add you to our email list.
I will visit soon … when the snow melts!
In His Service,
