Rough Draft of letter I sent to my last ministry - heard they will be celebrating 40yrs the end of this month.
Dear Church Family,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:3 says “I thank my God every time I remember you.” I take that verse to heart when I remember the fine people at Cary Christian Church. Valerie, the children, and I would like to send our greetings and congratulations on your 40th Celebration of the Church.
We think of the people there as family. We had a GREAT 5 year ministry there in which it caused me to grow, stretch, and to be challenged. As the youth & family minister there – it has helped me on the journey which God has called. Our children, Kendra, Nicole and Brian grew up at Cary from Infants to now starting in elementary school. Valerie and I bought our first home while there. You celebrated in our joys and were there in the heartaches too of Valerie losing her dad to a brain tumor.
When we think of Cary Christian – we think of Jesus. God’s blessings on you on your 40th and may you be Found Faithful until our Lord comes again.
