Dearly Beloved in Christ,
Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ,
Our gracious God has given us one more opportunity to be His loving witness on this face of the earth. It is a time to rejoice with the Lord for His love and care. It is a time to look back to the yesteryear and realize the abundance of grace that we experienced. Let us thank God for the greatest gift of life. Life is the best thing God has given us. When we accept the goodness of life, we will stop fighting against it. When we see that life is good, all impatience and frustration will be removed and life becomes a sat-satisfying and exciting experience. Allow your life to be controlled by godly principles and it will become an expression of His plans.The year 2015 has become history, by the grace of God; we are entering into a New Year 2016. 366 days in the year 2015 have gone by and we move on with renewed spirit.
The God of heaven Himself will help us succeed; therefore, we will arise and build! We will trust His Word and believe in the Sovereign Lord who always keeps His promises.( Nehemiah 2:20)
As a worshipping community we are fast approaching the reality of a new worship place in the newly purchased land in the city of Whitchurch-Stouffville. This is going to a reality, our whole hearted support and prayers are inevitable. As a worshipping community we have to arise and build this new church. The Site Plan Approval processes and the simultaneous selection of Contractors are going on. Thanks to all the Parishioners for your prayerful support and contribution.
As a faith community, God has given us the responsibility to be his torch bearers in and around our living space. Let us commit our lives into the mighty hands of our Saviour, so that he may take it, break it and use it for His Glory. May the Lord Almighty bless each one of us to be His witness all through this year.
We wish you all a happy and blessed new year to bring kingdom values in our lives.
