75th Anniversary Weekend

Posted by joelbyer on November 25, 2009

For any of my friends who don’t have Facebook, here are a few pictures this past week of our church’s 75th anniversary celebrations…
We had an anniversary supper Saturday evening and then a morning & afternoon service, Sunday.
I felt it went well and God was honoured.

Stirring thought from John Maxwell….

Posted by joelbyer on November 1, 2009

No one can connect with everybody. It doesn’t matter how hard you work at it. Though I strive to be an effective communicator, I know there are people I leave cold when I talk. That’s okay. But you can be sure that I will do everything in my power to keep them from falling asleep. The longer they stay engaged, the better the chance I have of winning them over. And the better the chance of adding value to them.
