A Message from Pastor Katie



Rev. Katie Osier




From Our Pastor


Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ!

These past weeks have been filled with great celebration - as we have taken the time to honor Confirmands and now Graduates. More importantly, as a body of Christ we have celebrated Ascension, Pentecost, and Trinity Sundays. All three of these remind the church that the God we worship is one who is Lord of all who refuses to leave us feeling abandoned and alone.

Moreover, God has given us God’s likeness through the Holy Spirit. With this gift, we are given the opportunity to do the amazing and miraculous - all through the power of Jesus’ name!

What might that look like in the upholding of the church through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness?

Prayers - In Jesus’ name, healing, encouragement,\compassion, mercy wondrously manifest.

Presence - Not only during worship, but in the world, Jesus becomes a presence in and through us, therefore bringing hope and promise.



Gifts - In Jesus’ name, gifts become multiplied when given beyond ourselves and risk generosity for the benefit of others.

Service - In Jesus’ name, we build new relationships in teaming together to build one another up through our intentional time of putting others before ourselves.

Witness - This becomes the culmination of the church, the body of Christ, working together that we might all have a taste of heaven now - the Kingdom of Christ Jesus here and now.

This is why we move into a season of Kingdomtide over the summer and early fall. We are called to be the body of Christ unleashed into the world: a tidal force of love, mercy and grace that it so desperately needs.

How will you allow the Holy Spirit rearrange your every step, your every thought, your every moment to join the force of Kingdomtide this summer - as you are in worship here or travelling across the country?

As they say in ‘Bama: ROLL TIDE, ROLL!
