Candace's Pastoral Ponders...

I want to start by thanking you for allowing me to serve as  chaplain for a week at Camp John Knox.  I was encouraged and inspired by the faith and dedication of the staff counselors.  These young adults have chosen to serve at John Knox instead of working in more lucrative and less time consuming settings.  They are dedicated to sharing Christ’s love with the next generation.  They need our prayers as they deal with long hot days, nights with little sleep, and all the ups and downs of each camper’s experience.  I pray that I blessed them as much as they blessed me!
On July 9th we will rejoice and affirm God’s call to Dorothy Parks-Piatt.  Many years ago, members of New Hope promised at her baptism to nurture her and raise her to know the love of God.  You have fulfilled your promise and continue to do so with our current young people.  As we participate in Dorothy’s ordination as a teaching elder, we celebrate the people that nurtured her in the faith and helped bring her to this point and we pray for her future  ministry.
We ourselves are getting ready to minister to the next generation.  We are seeking to reach out to our community and invite them to Vacation Bible School.  I know that many of you are volunteering your time and donating supplies and I thank you.  It takes the whole congregation’s support and commitment to reach those outside the walls of our building.  Please continue to pray for the participants and the volunteers.
I am glad to welcome Lea (pronounced LEE) Jolley to our church staff.  Janet and the choir have done an awesome job during the interim time, but I know they are glad to pass that responsibility to Lea.  She brings a lot of expertise and a deep desire to serve God with love and enthusiasm.  For that I am thankful.
Finally, we as a congregation must acknowledge that we have been through a rough year.  We have lost many faithful servants over the last 10 months.  While we grieve the loss of brothers and sisters in Christ, we must not despair.  God is with us and will carry us through.  We must look back to the faith of those who started and built this congregation and be encouraged for the future. There is still a great deal of ministry to be done by New Hope.  I know that God is going to do amazing things and I am excited to be on this journey with you all!
