First Day as Pastor

Posted by Rick on August 1, 2007

I am pleased to have completed my first day as pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church.  To be honest, I spent most of the day just setting up my office.  Not really a thrilling life of a pastor.

 As I was walking back from the parsonage, I saw a couple of folks sitting out on their front porch, across the street.  I made a short little detour to meet them and introduce myself.  I also invited them to church.

I am trying to make it a habit to invite new folks I meet to come visit our church.  It is a simple thing to do. 

Tonight, I took the pulpit as pastor for the first time at Immanuel and for the first time as pastor.  It was an exciting time as I shared with the faithful core group about our pilgrimage and about our calling.  We ended the evening by gathering around in a circle, holding hands in prayer.

I’m looking forward to what tomorrow holds.

Bro. Rick
