From the Pastor and First Lady’s Heart

pastorandwife_blueHappy New Year, GEMBC and friends!

As we settle into a New Year let us reflect on the Divine Favor of God on our church. Our God has been faithful and merciful to us in 2014. He has continually led us by His Spirit to advance and renew ministries and auxiliaries for His Glory, the edification of His church and community. We expanded our Youth and Young Adults Ministry and established a new Men’s Ministry. The Lord will continue to cultivate and grow these ministries and others for greater works in 2015 and beyond, as we faithfully continue to co-labor with Him.

It is the will of God for our church to meet the needs of every generation by taking the holistic approach; spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically. The Lord is concerned about the whole man and so should we. I look forward with great anticipation and hope toward the next steps of faith with our Lord to see what He shall manifest through you in 2015. The work ahead is great, but Great is our God; He shall do the work through us! For the year of 2015, we proclaim our theme, “Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace.” Let’s take it to heart and demonstrate it in our faithfulness to Him at home, at work, at church and in our community.

In conclusion, I exhort you with excerpts from Psalm 100: “…Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing …be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.”

In Christ’s Joy and Service,

Pastor and Mrs. Rickey Jones, Sr.
