We are glad the Lord has led us to Bethany, and look forward to serving together with all of you who make up the body of Christ in this place. Thanks to all those who gave their time to help us move and unpack, to those who have provided for us while we get settled in, and to all those who faithfully serve in the church and bring joy to a pastor’s heart. And thank you for the welcome service today — the music, the fellowship, the prayer and ministry in the word from other pastors who came, but especially the warm words of welcome expressed by the deacons on behalf of the congregation. It means a lot to us. May the Lord bless you as we serve Him together in the days ahead.
~ Pastor Philip, Sydonyia, and family
