New Beginnings (One More Time)

In March when I drafted my first column for my first
newsletter I talked about change. Little did I realize
just how much change was going to happen!
So we end the year 2018 saying farewell to our Pastor
and friend of 22 years. Godspeed Pastor Matthew and
Laurie. You have been an important part of our lives
and we all bless and thank you!
So, as the saying goes, “Life goes on.”
We start the new year 2019 with the same God, the same
faith. We still have Pilgrim United Church of Christ.
We still have the friends that we meet on Sunday and at
many other meetings. We still have Pilgrim’s commit-
ment to community. We have the best childcare center
in SW Florida staffed with the best employees. We
have the opportunity to carry on God’s work.
We have so very much to be thankful for. So let us say
our goodbyes and get on with the business of being
good Christians and making Pilgrim a church to be en-

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the
Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans
to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
