A Note from Bro Rick

Posted by Rick on August 6, 2009

Dear Church Family,

For two years I have had the honor and privilege of being your pastor.  This past Sunday, I gave my anniversary sermon despite the fact that I have been suffering from pneumonia.  Make no mistake; I needed to give that sermon, which you can hear by going to and searching for “Parts is Parts”.  I want to say that I honestly never thought I that I would enjoy being a pastor, but I do!  I love being your pastor!

Unfortunately, by my own stubbornness, I have made an error in judgement.  It was fool hearted of me to presume that I could preach two services while trying to recover from pneumonia.  After a visit to the doctor yesterday, it became exceedingly clear that I am not recovering as quickly as I should be.  Therefore, the doctor has ordered bed rest for a week.

With that in mind, I have asked Bro. Willy Rice to preach for me Sunday morning, and Bro Gene Limb to preach for me Sunday evening.  It isn’t an easy thing for me to do, but I think it is best for our church in the long run.  Thank you so much for your prayers and your support & encouragement!

Bro Rick

    We are praying fervently for you Pastor! Rest and know that you are appreciated and loved in Christ. Do I need to make you some home-made Chicken Noodle Soup to aide in a speedier recovery *grin*?
