“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37: 3,4)
Dears in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the name of Jesus Christ.
Let us thank God for His abundant blessings and guidance throughout last year. As a church last year, we were all blessed by His grace. I am appreciating all parish members for their participation and hard work for the success of all our programmes, Christmas caroling, door to door, etc. The responsible people did lots of hard work especially our oﬃce bearers and diﬀerent conveners of diﬀerent committees. Once again, I appreciate all of you for your participation. As a church we must continue our unity and fellowship for our future. 2020 as a church we have lots of challenges in our faith journey. This year we are completing 10th year in our faith Journey. As a Church we must thank Lord for the all blessings which we received for the last ten years.
33rd Diocesan family conference will be held in Atlanta Carmel Mar Thoma Centre from July 2nd to 5th 2020. This conference is considered as ‘Global Mar Thoma Meet 2020’. Registration will begin from this month onwards, those who are planning to attend this conference please make necessary arrangements. I am very happy that 5 members from our youth fellowship attended this year’s Diocesan Leadership Conference held at Carmel Mar Thoma Center.
According to our Church Calendar Great Lent is starting from February 23rd . This year also we are planning to have 50 days Lent prayer.
Hope the new year will bring new possibilities and will help in our renewal. Pray that the Holy spirit help us to go forward in our spiritual journey and bear fruit for His glory.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, GOD BLESS YOU ALL
