With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you all how wonderful it is to be your pastor. I was in Waco two Saturdays ago and was just bursting as I talked about our church family. I spoke with several old friends about our church and just (humble) bragged on our family. There is no place I would rather be!
I am thankful for the way you all have served, given, prayed, loved and cared for each other. I am grateful for the encouragement you have given to me over the past weeks. I am grateful for the emotional support. Whether it is our worship team, our elders, our kids workers, my wife(!), our greeting team, our community group leaders or our talented staff (yay Justus and Sara!), I am grateful all who serve and lay down their time, resources and energy at Normandy.
So thank you! I dearly love and care for you all.
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy...
Pastor John, Kasey & Jude
