Since returning from sabbatical in early September, I find myself ever more grateful for our life together at Nassau Presbyterian Church. It is a gift for me to lead a thriving congregation that gathers with such enthusiasm each Lord’s Day expecting to hear and respond to the promise of God. The Spirit’s presence is palpable as week in and week out we seek to discern the gospel’s relevance in our lives and in the world. With worship at the center, an extensive web of mission, service, and discipleship is growing because of the grace of God and the faithfulness of your lives.
The life and witness of Nassau Church is healthy and strong. This fall I invite you to join me both in giving thanks to God for that reality and in choosing not to take it for granted. God has blessed all of us who consider Nassau Presbyterian Church home. That blessing from God has a past in the ministry that has been entrusted to us. It has a future as we commit to and continue to live out God’s mission among us and before us.
Please know how thankful I am to all who give to support our ministry. Each and every gift builds our culture of generosity and helps to further our collective proclamation of God’s love in word and deed. My thanks comes on behalf of the Session, the Deacons, and the staff of the church.
As your pastor, I humbly ask for your financial support for 2017. This November I once again invite you into a season of prayer and discernment. Your gift in the coming year is important to the church and should be offered in a spirit of prayerful reflection, commitment, and response to all that God is doing among us.
More details will be coming related to our 2017 pledging and giving. For now, I offer my thanks and ask for your prayers.
With Grace and Peace,
David A. Davis
