Pastor’s Greeting

“An Inclusive Church Family”

 

Greetings!

Well, another year has come and gone, and now we look into that wide open field before us called 2017!

What does it hold in store for us?  What is God calling us to do as individuals and as a congregation?  It really is not possible to know or anticipate what lies before us.  We can plan ahead, and it helps to do so,  but we know full well that life does have a habit of throwing us curve balls. But whatever the future has to offer we must trust that God is with us. As Jesus once said, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.”  Indeed, we do have enough on our plate today without getting worked up about the future.  He also said, “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness”.

In other words, our focus should be upon the task at hand, bearing witness to God’s love in all that we say and do. Life is an adventure, and it would be rather boring if we knew with certainty what lies ahead.  Instead, we move ahead, letting it all unfold, trusting that we are not alone, and are given the strength and courage to face every challenge!

God bless,
David Westcott

“A Place to Share Your Faith Since 1883”

JESUS DIDN’T TURN PEOPLE AWAY, even those often rejected by others. We are like a “company of strangers,” made family by the grace of God. God welcomes, claims, and loves all people. God also feeds our hunger, forgives our sins, and frees us from aimless wandering.

This is no idle chatter.  The United Church of Christ has been bold in extending an invitation to all. For example, our historic denomination was first to ordain an African-American pastor (1785), a woman (1853), and a gay or lesbian  (1972).

We reach out through Worship, Music, Children’s Ministry, Fellowship opportunities for all, Adult Bible Studies, Missions Projects, Community and Global Outreach .

Our facilities are used as an outreach to our community by sharing our space with community groups such as Meals on Wheels, West Volusia Music Club, Art Classes and various AA Groups like the Grateful Group, District 19, Sisters In Sobriety and Sobriety First.
