Isn't it wonderful to start a new year with new hopes and new ideas and new plans?  Debra and I are delighted to be with you as we begin this 365-day journey into the future. Together, we can all be better than we can separately. 

Let's commit today that we will attend every service possible.  Hebrews 10:25 says, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together" but let us go beyond the scriptural instruction and focus on the "Why" of coming. We should come because we want to. We should look forward to seeing other church members and sharing with them in song and prayer and study -- in WORSHIP!

On the first day of the week, we share the Lord's Supper. God knew His created children would need reminders and gave us this vivid physical activity to keep us focused on what Jesus has done for us.  May we all decide today that we will never miss the first day gathering to share the Supper of the Lord.

On a personal note, I am your servant.  If I can help any of the in any way please let me know.  I want to be good in your lives.  I want to be good for the church here in Miami.  May we grow s a congregation and be a shining light set on a hill so that all may see.  This is my prayer.
