A Missionary's Corner



During the past few months we have been impacted by changes in the way we live, work, relate to other people and gather for worship. We could of course add other changes to this list.  But we can be thankful

that, in the midst of changes in our lives, there are some biblical truths that do not change:


“For I am the Lord, I change not . . . .” (Malachi 3:6).

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8).

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:28-27).

“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new ever morning: great is his faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

“Grace be with you all. Amen (Hebrews 1325).




The Corona virus Pandemic has presented our churches and association with challenges.  As an association we need to make decisions that will be in the best interest of all concerned while keeping the safety of our churches and congregations a top priority. Therefore below are three recommendations being presented to the Executive Committee of our association:


Larry McCoy, Associational Mission Strategist, Rev. Robbie Wood – Moderator, Rev. Dennis Murphy, Vice- Moderator and Lisa Green – Secretary are asking the Executive Committee to approve Association Business That Needs Our Attention.  The members of the Executive Committee can vote by email and those without email can vote by calling Lisa at the associational office.  We request that the members of the Executive Committee have their votes recorded by Lisa no later than September 1, 2020.


1. Approve a Budget for 2021 that will be the same as 2020.

2. Cancel the October 2020 Meeting.

3. Approve the Moderator and Vice-Moderator to continue serving for another year.


“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).
