Pastor’ Pen      
 

    We have reached the year 2023. The year of 2022 has come to a close and as always it seems to have gone by so quickly. We have made it through the holidays and we face a new year and a new season of what God is doing through us and the church at FBC Anderson.

 

    As I think back through this past year I am continually amazed at just what God has done. This past year we have seen a beloved pastor continue on in gospel ministry in Kansas. I was graciously voted in on Easter as the new pastor for which I am forever grateful and humbled.

 

    We saw God start new ministries here most notably our children’s choir which did an amazing job performing their musical this year. We saw people get saved and baptized. We have seen our youth and children’s ministries grow. We hosted a multi church back to school event. We hosted and facilitated Angel Tree of McDonald County. God brought great fruit through our VBS and through which we have seen families come to be a part of our fellowship. I believe God has brought great spiritual growth in His church. Even though we have had some struggles financially God has seen us through it all and continues to do so even as much as he has allowed us to replace three of our air conditioners. I’m sure there is something I am forgetting to mention but the big idea is that God has been at work here at FBC and it is evident every single week. I want to thank you as a church for your faithfulness and the continued blessing I feel every time I walk through the doors.

 

    The new year is always a time to evaluate and make changes in our lives and this year is no different.  I hope you take the opportunity over the next couple of weeks to spend time with God evaluating your own spiritual life in order to see how you can live more faithfully to Him in the next year.

 

    On Sunday January 1st we will be starting a new sermon series as we study the entire book of Acts. It is a long book of 28 chapters and is the 3rd longest book in the New Testament after the Gospel of Luke and the Gospel of Matthew. I am praying that this study ignite in us a love for God’s church and a passion to see our community and the world hear the good news of Jesus Christ. God bless you and as always know that I am praying for you. “Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his majesty is above earth and heaven.”-Psalm 148:13

 

   
 In His Grace,
Pastor Austin
