Greetings to all. This past Sunday evening we gathered together as a local assembly to re-open and rededicate the newly renovated Fellowship Hall. We shared a wonderful evening together beginning with a delicious meal prepared by a handful of the ladies. Missionary liason Mary Ellen Barge gave us an update on the Petersons who continue to serve in the Phillipines. We were challenged by the Scriptures around the themes of Faithfulness, Focus, and Fellowship and then we re...Read Full Post »

Greetings to you. It is a beautiful spring morning as I write this update. The birds are singing and all around are signs of life new and vibrant. This is truly a wonderful time of year as nature grants us myriad reminders of what Christ has brought to us by His death and subsequent resurrection. We are now born again, born anew, given a new existence a fresh start !!! As I thought about this during the week I constantly came back to the great truth that all of this is ours BECAUSE Jesu...Read Full Post »

Hello my friends. As I write this update it is the waning hours of another Lord's day. We began this mornings sunday school hour with a handful of choruses, one of these choruses was "This is the day" (...that the Lord has made). What a great thought that each day of our life is created and ordained by our heavenly Father. We should rejoice and be glad in it. Today certainly was a blessed day. We missed many of our dear friends who were away traveling. Some of the guys got together and were a...Read Full Post »

Winter continues on the frozen tundra....wait I mean in Lancaster County. But....we know that spring is right around the corner!!! Several people I have spoken to this past week have expressed to me in one form or another that they are experiencing the winter blah's. You know that feeling of just being done with the snow, cold, slush, muck, etc. I mean really just plain done with it all. I too find myself slipping there and yet I pause to think ......hmmm how soon until we are gri...Read Full Post »

Wow - we have been buried by snow here in Lancaster. As I write this update we currently have 28 inches in my back yard! The biggest snowstorm to hit the region in over 50 years(a two-parter) has just subsided and left us to dig out from under it's remains.
This past Lord's day we did a word study in the Bible on the word snow. Did you know that the word is used 24 times in our english Bible? (KJV for this study) We learned that it appears the most times in the book...Read Full Post »

Well, again I come to the website and stand amazed that it has been so long since I have posted a Pastor's Update on it. We have now departed from 2009 and entered 2010 ! With the New Year I guess I have the opportunity for a new start if you will be so kind. My resolve will be to post much shorter updates and yet to post them more often. Let's see how I do this year shall we?
For starters I would like to bring you up to speed on where we are now as a congrega...Read Full Post »

Greetings in Christ to all. Again it has been a very long time since I have posted an update, and again I must apologize. The cyber-world unfortunantly gets placed on the back burner when the real world gets busy! It is hard to believe we are entering August already!
The renovations to Fellowship Hall are well underway. The rough wiring and the duct work has been done. Our first building inspection is imminent and then it is on to windows, insulation and drywall. Lots of hard...Read Full Post »

Well..... sheepish greetings to you all. I cannot believe how long it has been since I have been able to post a pastor's update! Some of you must have thought that I had passed on to my eternal reward by now. Fortunantly or unfortunantly (depending on your viewpoint) that is not the case. What has transpired is that my family is now moved into a new home and we are still sorting through the boxes and trying to figure out where all of our belongings are! In the meantime a lot has been happenin...Read Full Post »

Easter greetings to my dear friends. So much has transpired between last month's update and today that I hardly know where to begin ! I will start by praising God that we indeed serve a risen Saviour . We celebrate this event every Lord's day when we come together to worship. This past Lord's day however, was of course Easter and so we specifically focused on this glorious and life-changing FACT. We began the day with a special fellowship breakfast which warmed ...Read Full Post »

Greetings to you all once again! It has been a busy month in the Furches household. My wife and I both just celebrated birthdays and now we are preparing for Abbie's third birthday which is next Wednesday. We are planning on having a small family party this Saturday and Camila is working on making a Strawberry Shortcake themed birthday cake for her.
This past Saturday was the huge "Mud Sale" here in Gordonville. It is called that because it is usually accompanied by spring rains ...Read Full Post »
