Looking Ahead – A Message from Rev. Dr. Russ Ritchel, Jr.

Dear Friends,

Last week I was in a waiting room where there were several puzzles assembled on the table. The picture on one puzzle, was just M&Ms. Someone had taken a picture of what must have been a huge bowl of M&Ms, and then cropped it to show only the candy. I thought about how hard that puzzle must have been to assemble! But every piece was unique, and when it came together, there was an incredible puzzle picture. Scripture says that God is in the process of putting together a puzzle of sorts we call the church. Everyone of us has a role. One place this process is described is in Ephesians 1:1-7; 11-16. Its message is something I need to remember. I am looking forward to looking at it with you.

We will see you on Sunday!

Yours in His service,
Russ Ritchel
