A note from Pastor John
This month’s question: “Dr. John, you have been at JKPC for about six years. What’s been accomplished?”
I am really pleased about what has been happening in Worship. We have not only been sharing wonderful music and solid liturgies, but I am hearing from people that they are experiencing a powerful sense of the Holy! Yes, God is actually speaking to many through our worship.
One of the main reasons I am here at JKPC is because of the way that so many of the congregation are willing to volunteer and actually do work in the congregation---you are so willing to actually “walk the walk, and not just talk the talk.”
Lots of churches say that they are places where people love each other, but here at JKPC I have seen this as a daily reality.
This congregation is made up of so many that are different from one another yet are united in Christ. We are young and old, rich and poor, people with various political opinions, yet we know that we all are cared about and taken seriously.
I like that we laugh a lot. The Presbyterian concept of “praise God and enjoy God forever” is not only found in worship, it is found in meetings, in working together and even in our prayers. This is a place where fun happens because we know that grace and forgiveness are present.
As always, to God be the glory!
Yours in Christ,
John Knox Presbyterian Church, 452 Cummings Lane N, P O Box 20968, Keizer OR 97307
