Message from Rev. Danielson – September 2016

 MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR

My, how the year has past.  It was on the first Sunday of September, 2015 that I began my preaching at Starkdale.

You have been a very  responsive congregation wanting to hear the word of God Sunday by Sunday. You have made it a joy for me to be among you.

Furthermore, the two weekly Bible studies have kept me on my toes as we methodically worked together through the latter-part of Revelation and the book of Daniel.

Now it is time for new chapters to be written in the life of this church.  The search committee has been most diligent.  You as a congregation have been most patient and faithful in attendance.  Thank you for giving me the privilege of ministry among you.

May God bless you mightily until He comes to take us all home to be together with each other and with our Lord forevermore.

Rev. Paul Danielson

 

VBS 2016 Recap

vbs2016Barnyard Roundup was a wonderful time of learning about Jesus. Each day was a blessing. The five teaching Bible lessons were:

Day 1 – Jesus is the Good Shepherd, Jesus cares now and forever. Day 2 – Jesus Feeds 5000 People, Jesus provides now and forever. Day 3 – Jesus Tells about a Sower, Jesus leads now and forever. Day 4 – The Prodigal Son, Jesus forgives now and forever. Day 5 – Jesus Appears to Mary in the Garden, Jesus is our Savior now and forever.

The children learned how graciously Jesus gathers us together with His abundant provision and saving protection, now and forever. The music, opening, and closing activities were all focused around these lessons. The crafts and games were exceptional, and the snacks that our kitchen helpers provided were really, really, great!

Youth News – July 2016

sym_logoIt has been an exciting couple of months of ministry for the youth and children here at Starkdale.  The Starkdale youth helped out at the Vacation Bible School and did a great job. In addition to supporting Bible School, SYM students have also been participating in the STRONG Youth Anti-Drug coalition.

The Allegheny Angels performed at the Rising Stars Music Night, and at the Hometown Talent Concert here in Steubenville.  May all of us be as the scripture says “salt and light” (Matt.5:13-16) wherever we go so that people see “Christ in us, the hope of glory”. Colossians 1:27
