Pastor’s Thoughts

It’s been five weeks since the congregation of Percival Community Church has returned to its place of worship.

The sanctuary was beautifully decorated for the Advent and Christmas season. For most of us we were home, praising the Lord, at prayer, His word proclaimed and fellowship renewed.

Except for an early December snow storm the weather has been exceptionally mild, warm sunny days and above normal temperatures. This has allowed work to begin on the levee system along the Missouri River, sand removal from farms and home owners continuing with repairs and a few able to move back home.

The Lord is gracious and good.

All of this gives hope that the potential of a spring repeat is inevitably lessened.

The “Showers of Blessing Campaign” has ended with approximately $22,500.00 received. We are grateful to the many individuals, organizations, churches and others who contributed to assist the financial needs of the people of Percival and surrounding areas. It is being distributed with much prayer and discernment. The needs will be greater but God is greater and he has promised to “supply all our needs.” Please continue to uplift us in your prayers and do not forget the many other places such as Joplin, Missouri that needs our encouragement and support.

We thank our Lord and Savior for each of you and we will remember that to whom much is given much is expected in return.

I am looking forward to an exciting new year.

 Pastor Blaine
