From the Pastor – April 2024

Change—the ever-present companion on our journey through life. It knocks on our doors, uninvited yet inevitable. This is a time for change-Spring is a season of new growth, life changing and budding before our eyes. You may be finding many changes in your employment, your family and here at our church.  But what if we embraced it? What if we saw change not as an adversary but as a catalyst for growth and transformation? Today, I want to share with you the profound benefits of change:

Personal Growth:

Every twist and turn, every unexpected shift, contributes to our growth. Even when change doesn’t lead us where we intended, it teaches us valuable lessons. We gain insights into different aspects of life, shaping us into wiser, more resilient individuals.


Frequent changes cultivate adaptability. Like a supple tree swaying in the wind, we learn to adjust to new situations, environments, and people. Unexpected shifts no longer send us into a panic; instead, we navigate them with grace.


Change is the catalyst for improvement. Whether it’s our finances, relationships, or personal well-being, progress requires doing things differently. Without change, there’d be no room for growth.

Reevaluating Life Values:

Change prompts introspection. It invites us to reevaluate our priorities, our purpose, and our values. Sometimes, it reinforces what truly matters to us. Other times, it nudges us toward a fresh perspective.

The Snowball Effect:

Change begets more change. Like a snowball rolling down a hill, one positive shift leads to another. As we embrace change, it gathers momentum, propelling us toward a better life.

Remember, dear congregation, change isn’t our adversary; it’s our ally. It shapes us, molds us, and ultimately leads us to where we need to be. So let us welcome it with open hearts, knowing that within its currents lie the seeds of transformation.

In faith and hope,
Pastor Nicole
