Dear Friends,
  
    For the past couple of days, the news has been full of the horrific mass murder of worshippers at a Jewish Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  It would be easy to dispair of the depths human beings have sunk to when we hear of such heartless, violent acts against innocent people.  But we must keep our focus - not on the wickedness of one human being - but on the heroism and goodwill of all those who have risen to stand by those affected.  Most of all, we need to focus on the very real fact that God is not absent during these times.  God has not stopped working and God is still calling on us to keep our eyes on our mission to PROCLAIM the gospel of Jesus Christ and bring people into a sharing relationship with him; to NURTURE the spiritual growth of the congregation; and SERVE as Christ would in meeting the spiritual and physical needs of our community and world.

     The very day of this shooting we, here at Belmont, enjoyed a great turnout for our very first Trunk or Treat event.   People who may never have known we are in existence came through our doors expressing thanks for providing a safe place for their children to come.  God was at work at our church that afternoon and we are grateful and amazed.  Please remain in prayer that God will direct us on how to keep reaching out to these families.

      One of the ways we are planning to make our church more family friendly is that we are planning on adding a Saturday evening service.  We are still in the planning stage, but one thing we all agree on is that it will be casual, blended service.  If this is something you might be interested in attending, please contact me. I covet your prayerful input.

     Yes, God has not stopped working and we are privileged to be a part of what God is doing in our community and the world.   May the grace of the Father, the love of the Son, and the unity of the Holy Spirit abide upon you this day and every day unto the ages and ages to come.


                                                                      
On the Potter's wheel,
