"Humble yourselves, therefore, un-der the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you" (1 Peter 5:6)
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 programs, 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. Last year we did a monthly subscription drive let me appreciate all parish members for their co-operation It was a big success. By the grace of God last year our membership also increased let me take this opportunity to welcome our new members.
2019 will be a big year for us, our church is hosting Diocesan Yuvajana Sakhyam conference. It will be on October 4,5,6 2019 at Bushkill Inn Resort, Poconos. This Year Church General Body is planning to do a fund raising program too. I request the prayerful support and participation of all the parish members for the success of these events. I am very happy that 22 of our youths attended leadership conference from January 3rd to 6th at Canadian Mar Thoma Church Toronto, Canada. Junior Senior conference is planned to be held in June from 27 to 30, 2019. I request all the parents and Sunday school teachers to prepare our children for this conference.
Let me appreciate all office bearers, executive committee members, building committee and all sub committees for their hard
work and support throughout these years. Let me welcome and pray for new office bearers executive committee, so they can work
together for the glory of God.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, GOD BLESS YOU ALL
