Pastor Tom's February Newsletter 2020

February 2020

Dear Church Family,

February is here. The days are getting longer, and we eagerly await Spring. As I write this letter, I am filled with anticipation for what God will do this year at Fairview Loop. I am praying this will be a year we as a church will attempt extravagant things as we seek the will and direction of the Lord. As the church we have the power of God’s Holy Spirit at work in our midst. We cannot fail!

God has been faithful to send workers into His harvest and we know this is a direct answer to prayer. Now let us all join hearts and hands in the work and allow God to reach the lost in our community through each one of us. It truly is a privilege to share Christ with others, but in a skeptical world we often need to earn the privilege to share that witness for our Lord. The ministries of the church are one way we can earn the privilege to share, by first meeting a physical need then ministering to the spiritual need. Many times, the witness is given during the ministering. The scriptures make it clear that love is the key to effective ministering and witnessing. The truth of your faith will be established to an unbelieving world by love. How appropriate that we be reminded of the truest expression of God’s love, during February when even the world is attempting to celebrate love.

Ask for God sized blessings, believe in God sized answers, and join together in God sized work.

Pastor Tom
