Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement over the past week of recovering from this ruptured appendix. The trend is up and rising.
Weather permitting, the family and I will worship with you Sunday. It's Baptism of the Lord Sunday, and there couldn't be a better day for ordaining and installing new elders: celebrating the start of Jesus' ministry; celebrating the beginning of a new year of leadership at NKP. Also, remember we're holding an annual meeting of the congregation that day to revise bylaws (see revisions here), present the 2017 budget, approve my Terms of Call for 2017, and to have an annual meeting of the corporation.
As for inclement weather on Sunday, the session will make a decision as timely as possible; and, when we do, you'll probably see the info posted via NKP email blast and on the website (newkirkpres.com).
Thanks for ministering to us during this time, teaching us to better minister with you.
