A Note From Dan

Dan HarrisonI remember when my kids were small and they were learning what it was like to trust. I would be in the pool and would want them to jump in the water to me. They were afraid to be dependent on me to keep them from going under water. When they finally jumped, that helped them to develop trust in me and each time they jumped that trust became stronger.

Our relationship with Christ grows as we learn to trust. Trusting builds trust. Just like with my children, this trust starts out small and grows as we depend on Christ in all situations. Many times, we are too self sufficient to trust Christ. We have the attitude that ‘I can do it myself’ and that keeps us from trusting Him.

I think about a verse in a popular Christian song that says; “When I walk through deep waters, I know that you will be with me. When I’m standing in the fire, I will not be overcome. Through the valley of the shadow, I will not fear. I am not alone, You will go before me, You will never leave me, I am not alone.”

In the past few weeks, Leisa and I have had to put into action the trust we have in Christ. Our statement has been, “God has this”. God has been faithful and we see how God has had this long before we even were aware of the situation.

Thank you church family for your prayers and support. We love you and are grateful that we serve together with you. We serve a Great God!

“When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and will cover you with my hand while I pass by.”
– Exodus 33:22

Remember… Come support our youth as they share Sunday night in their ‘Homecoming Concert’ from their recent choir tour and mission trip.
