Ephesians 3:20-21, Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Yesterday, I was honored to celebrate 20 years as the Pastor at Cottonwood Creek. Over those 20 years, I’ve seen a lot of changes. Our community has grown greatly in those years and so has the church.
However, the greatest thing for me as a Pastor is that I have seen people grow. I have had the privilege of seeing struggling families put back together, and I have watched parents dedicate their children in our church, and then shake those same kids’ hands as they have graduated high school and headed off to college.
In a nutshell, I have been blessed. It has been an honor to serve not only at Cottonwood as Pastor, but to serve in this incredible community for these past 20 years. I can only imagine what God has planned for our church community in the next 20 years.
Thank you for 20 amazing years and have a blessed day!
