Exciting Anniversary for our Associate Pastor
 
This past Sunday, our church celebrated our associate pastor's first year anniversary.  It is hard to believe that a year has come and gone.  I guess time really does fly when you're having fun, as the old saying goes.  What a joy it was to surprise Pastor Jeremy and Anna with a freezer full of meat!  My thanks to everyone who donated meat or monetary donations for the cause.  They are truly deserving of this gift and it is my prayer that they know how much they are loved and appreciated at NHBC.

The youth group has grown from about six teenagers to over thirty!  As a pastor, I can't sufficiently express how much joy that brings to my heart.  I don't suppose it will be long before he outgrows the youth building and we have to make plans to accommodate this thriving youth group!  

Not because of the growth, but because of his position as a pastor are we called to honor.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:12, we read "And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you, And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake..."  It is imperative that we pray for our pastors.  Even though I am a pastor making this plea, I can assure you that your prayers are deeply coveted.  A word of encouragement goes a long way.  So, whether you attend New Horizons or a different church, go out of your way to let your pastor know how much you love and appreciate him.  Don't stop at mere words; meet a practical need as a demonstration of your love.
