New Canaan Weekly Update

 

Good Morning New Canaan Family:

I want to send a shout-out to sister Coliena Ayele and all the members who supported our Back to School Drive-Thru Outreach. The Lord is awesome: we had great weather, team set-up and take down, Officer Conner spent the entire day with us and served. We distributed about 219 backpacks with gift cards and treats. There was good fellowship among the servers, and bountiful gratitude from the families and especially the children.

“Gratitude takes three forms: a feeling in the heart, an expression in words, and a giving in return.” Anonymous 

 August 9th will always remain a special day in the life of my ministry, for on that day in 1989 the New Canaan Church Family voted overwhelmingly to extend the invitation to serve as their sixth pastor. God has provided me with an incredible journey of faith, as my wife and I have grown spiritually, sincerely, and sacrificially through serving this local assembly of saints. After 31 years, I am still excited for the Lord’s hand over my life and ministry.

Let us pray for our Sick & Shut-in Members:

Corrine Askew – home

Rosemary Giles – home

Dominique Mungo – home

Franklin Seals – home

Florence Young – home
