A Letter from Pastor Trent

Dear Friends,

In just a few days, we will gather to worship – in person or online – to celebrate the birth of our Savior. We will be reminded that God does not love us from afar but knows our every joy and sorrow, entering into our life as one of us. We are still in Christmas mode and will be for a few more days, but I hope we will not put Christmas away too soon.

During the season of Christmas, we will turn the page to a new year – a year of fully embracing this time of transition in the life of Beulah Presbyterian Church. On January 23, you will elect the Pastor Nominating Committee and they will begin their work in earnest to discern and discover who God is calling to be your next pastor. We will gather, beginning in late January and into February in small groups to hear from you about your hopes and dreams for this church, what you value the most, what you see God calling this church to do and to be. And we will continue to live with and navigate life in the midst of a pandemic. We will continue to worship together and learn together and care for each other and serve together. We will continue to be the church – the body of Christ for the sake of the world.

I mentioned a while ago that you could expect some news about our Sunday schedule very soon. The session continues to discern the way forward. Please pray for your leaders as they seek the will of Christ for this congregation. Given the ongoing challenges of COVID and the uncertainties this entails, the session felt strongly that it was best to take our time and hear all the voices and listen, most importantly, for movement of the Spirit. We hope to have further clarity and a decision by February or so, at which point we will also have the benefit of what we have learned from you in our small group conversations. If you have any questions, please give me a call, send me an email, or stop by my office.

Blessings to each of you this Christmas season!

In Christ’s Peace,
