"I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now."   

(Philippians 1:3-5 NRSV)

I wanted to send a quick "thank you" to everyone at Creekwood United Methodist Church for making this another active year of receiving God's blessings and turning them into fruitful ministry.  As we continue welcoming new people, growing closer with God and each other, and doing our best to ensure those within our reach have the tools to never want again, I really do feel lucky to be your pastor.  I constantly remind people that every challenge we face is a positive challenge, and every challenge thus far has been met with a faithful attitude that God will provide.  

As we go into this beautiful time of celebrating holidays, may we never forget to give thanks to one another, and especially to our Creator, for the many blessings in our lives.

Peace,

David Lessner
