Preacher's Thoughts

It was so good to have our new Discipleship Minister, George Welty, with us recently. George was here with his son Brendan and gave us a super sermon on A King & A Kingdom. We look forward to seeing Dana, George’s wife, who will be here when George preaches again on September 22. That day will be very special as we welcome the Weltys and as we thank the Edmiastons for all they have done and continue to do for Northwest. Tom was a minister here for eight years the first time and over the last couple of years he came out of retirement to work part time on the staff. We are so grateful for his effective ministry in a time we needed him so badly…..

I was sad to learn of the deaths of two former members of Northwest – Martha Fletcher and Whitfield Joseph. Both of these were very faithful members a number of years ago. We have missed them and offer our deepest sympathy to their families…..

Life Groups begin September 8! Sign up sheets are in the Welcome Center, so sign up Sunday. Our theme for our lessons in the fall is Conformed or Transformed. Please find a Life Group. I am so looking forward to starting up again…..

I look forward to seeing you.
