The prayer of a righteous person availeth much. - James 5:16

I cannot remember a time quite like this in my ministry:  

  • Pastor Ed is recovering after the insertion of two stents around his heart and is back part-time; 
  • Lisa is recovering from reconstructive surgery and will be out for another two weeks;
  • Rachel is in the hospital for diagnosis and treatment of her kidneys;

I am praying for my friends and colleagues and ask you to do the same.  You are a gracious and righteous church.  I know that your prayers "availeth much" for these we love and who love us much. 

Trusting in the promises,


Matt Gaston
Lead Pastor
