From The Pastor’s Desk
If you are new to our church I want to welcome you to Leverington! We believe that God is doing beautiful new things at our church and we would love for you to be part of them! This is a church that deeply cares about community. Whether you are single, married, young or old there is a place for you here. You can find out all about who we are, what we believe, and what we are doing at www.Levpres.org I would also enjoy a chance to meet with you personally and learn more about your faith journey and how Leverington can help you and your family. Please feel free to call me at 215-428-0293 and we can set up a time to get together.
On the other hand, if you have been around our church for a while you may notice that some of the articles this month look suspiciously similar to articles we included last month! That is not because we are lazy (OK, that might be true too), but rather because these issues are so important we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to see them. So to recap what I said last month, a great deal of change is occurring in our church as we launch our new second service, called Gate Street. To find out the story behind that name, come to church on September 11th at either 9:30 or 11:00 AM! With all that is changing there are some crucial things that never change:
“All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.” 1 Peter 1:24
Although we may change some things on the surface, we are committed to continue teaching and preaching the Word of God which does not change. It is the Word of God that we need – first God’s living Word who is Jesus Christ, and then God’s written Word, which is the scriptures. As a church we are committed to building everything we do upon the unchanging foundation of God’s Word to us. That is why I am so excited about our upcoming series:
Whichever service you attend this fall, we will be learning together how God’s Word applies to the very practical issue we all deal with – navigating our closest relationships. This series will not only be helpful to you, it can be a great excuse to invite someone to church! Please begin praying now about inviting someone you know who could be blessed and helped by this series.
May God bless you deeply this Fall,
