Pastor's Article

What an incredible Easter celebration we had at Ashford. I could have listened to our wonderful choir, piano, organ, and those brass players all day! It was heavenly, and we surely will continue to rejoice in Christ’s victory over sin and death. Thank you to everyone that contributed to all of the many special services held by our church.


The renovation is now about 99% complete and the elevator is in service! Praise God for the generosity that made this project possible, and all of the leadership from the Building / Construction Committee chaired by Barry Beers. I think the finished product speaks highly of our love for the Lord and the respect we have for this beautiful church. Way to go!


Make sure you sign up to participate in the Rise Against Hunger event we are hosting at Ashford on April 21 at 4:00 pm. Of all the missions projects I’ve been a part of, this one might just be the most fun. Most importantly, we will be packing meals to feed more than 10,000 people. So many around the world live in extreme hunger, and we can make a difference! I know this will be a meaningful day for our church so sign up via the Sign-Up Genius.


Our first trip in the church van is still scheduled for April 20, with a destination change. We had planned to go see a Christian theater production in Augusta, but unfortunately it sold out before we could get our tickets. Perhaps we can try again for another one of their plays. As of this writing, there will still be a trip in the van, but the destination is unknown. Don’t you love a surprise? We will report back here with some additional details so the suspense won’t be too much to handle.

We will be exploring the biblical doctrine of the resurrection body this month in Sunday sermons. If you’ve ever wondered what our bodies will be like in the next life, come and see what the Scriptures tell us!

I hope you are able to enjoy these beautiful spring days. Whether we get outside for sports and recreation, gardening, or some other leisure activities, our area enjoys some of the best springtime weather anywhere. How great is our God and the exquisite beauty of His creation!

Know how loved you are by the Lord and continue praying for our wonderful church!
