February, 2020

From the Pastor

In our Lord’s Day worship on Sunday, February 2, we will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism.

February 9 is “Scout Sunday”.  The scouts, their families and leaders will worship with us and the boys will lead us in prayer and in the Pledge of Allegiance to our nation’s flag.  Our primary Bible text that day will be Matthew 5:13-20, where Jesus encourages us to be the salt and light of the world.

On Sunday, February 16, we will listen to the Apostle Paul as he seeks to heal divisions in the church he established in the ancient city of Corinth.  Believers there were arguing over who possessed the most important spiritual gifts.  But Paul reminded them that the Lord God is the source of their lives in Christ Jesus.  Therefore, he says: “Let the one who boasts, boast of the Lord.”

Sunday, February 23, is “Transfiguration of the Lord” in which Jesus briefly assumes a form of his heavenly glory, meeting with Moses and Elijah, to the terror of his disciples who are there with him on the mountaintop.  It is a “hinge Sunday” that closes the door on Ordinary Time and opens us up to Lent.

And on Wednesday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m. we will have a traditional Ash Wednesday service in the sanctuary which includes the imposition of ashes…reminding us that we are made of dust, and to dust we shall return.

The month of February is a time of transition as we begin to prepare ourselves for Easter.  So come join us.  Let us worship, fellowship together, and serve God and neighbor as disciples of the risen Lord Jesus!

            What a wonderful time it is to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus at Burgaw Presbyterian.  Come join us!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Will
