A special message from Pastor Karick
By now most of you, if not all, have heard that there has been an arrest in the arson case involving our church. I want to thank all of you who have prayed for a quick resolution to this issue. Let us remember that in our great nation, a man is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. We need to let due process take its course. I would ask that you pray for this gentleman. We do know that sometimes people who commit such acts have medical issues involved. I do not know if that is the case with this man, but I simply ask that you pray for him and his well being. As I shared with the congregation the Sunday after the fire, had the building burned to the ground, the church would still be here. The church is not a building; it is the people of God. This church will continue as it has since 1935 to declare the whole gospel for the whole man. While we are not perfect, my hope is that we have and will continue to make a positive impact in this community.
Thank you and God bless you is my prayer.
Pastor Arthur T. Karick
