Hello Spring Woods…
I want you to know, how awesome you are! I also want to give a huge thank you to Pastor Susan for her leadership and guidance prior to my arrival. It’s hard to believe we are at the close of summer. This summer has brought new changes in leadership, new ministry opportunities, and many new faces here at Spring Woods. I am reminded of the saying “time stands still for no one.” Over the course of the last few months, you have reached out and supported our community in flood recovery efforts, our children attended district camp, and our Belize missionary team witnessed God in unique ways during their mission trip. You said goodbye to one pastor and hello to another; through it all we can truly say, “God has blessed us and kept us.”
During the summer we added a non-denominational Hispanic service at 3:00 pm led by Pastors Verney and Alphonso Zelada. We would love for you to join us one Sunday afternoon for some awesome music and outstanding preaching.
Our ARISE service is blowing up; we are fortunate to have the best kept secret in our praise team led by Jessie Fonseca. Jessie and the praise band have the passion for praise and the heart for worship to bring us into God’s Holy presence.
Although these are our most recent hires, I‘m very impressed with Shana Parker and the volunteers in our children’s ministry. It was a joy watching Shana and her crew during our VBS this summer. Let your family and friends know that we have some great ministries going on at Spring Woods. Ask God to show you who to invite because the one thing I’m sure of is when we activate our faith, we can Love God, Love Others and Make a Difference! I’m excited about what’s happening here at Spring Woods.
Grace and Peace,
