“Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”
(1 Thes. 5:16-18).

Despite all of the challenges people face, we have so many reasons to be thankful.  God is our creator, sustainer, healer and so much more.  He is so worthy to be praised!

As your pastor, I am grateful to God for each of you.  I am recovering well because of God and your prayers.  Moreover, our church is doing well even though we have not been able to assemble together for over four months.  I want to thank you for your spiritual and financial support.  Truly, you make me feel so pleased knowing that my teaching was not in vain regarding you, so thank you for being so faithful and generous in your tithes and offerings.  Also, I want to thank so many of you who are still blessing me with love offerings as an appreciation for the 26 years I have steadfastly served St. John.

Due to current health challenges, I am not able to provide as much information as I usually do on Thursdays, so please review the information “From The Pastor’s Desk” that I shared with you last Thursday.  If you no longer have access to it, you can read it again on our website (sjmbc.org).

In conclusion, please continue to pray for me as I continue to pray for you.

May God bless and sustain each of us.

Your Servant In Christ,


Pastor Kevin B. Hall
