Prineville Presbyterian welcomed new leaders into their roles yesterday. We also talked about the excitement we all feel for the year ahead. We’re enjoying steady membership growth, and, we’re continually open to expanding our ministry as followers of Jesus Christ.

There are new things for us to focus on, some things for us to “tune up a bit,” and perhaps things that we’ll want to let go of. Quite frankly we’re having lots of conversations now that we’ve never ever had to have before.

All of this is a reflection of our Christian faith that comes through the grace that Jesus offers; making everything all right between God and us simply by us acknowledging Him as God’s Chosen One for us.

While we’re quick to accept His grace and share that grace with others as we pay God’s love forward, as we move into this new season we also want to remember to be graceful to ourselves.

Because some things are going to work out much better than planned - others will turnout about as well as expected - and then there will be “those times” when grace is all we got.

Anne Lamott is one of my favorite writers and says: “I do not at all understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.”

Join us Sundays at 10AM. Let's see where this mystery might take us.
Together We Serve,
Pastor Mike
