July 28th was my last Sunday in the pulpit at West Grove Presbyterian Church!  God has richly and extravagantly blessed me as your pastor for over 8 years.  We've grown in love, in depth and in commitment to loving the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and loving our neighbors as ourselves.  And, as you listen to my last sermon with you, you'll realize that the Lord has great plans for you.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm you.  Plans to give you hope and a future.  Embrace the Lord's Words and watch the Lord do even greater works among you.  I continue to pray for you, for I know the Lord has great plans for the "friendliest church around!"

FIRST MOBILE CHURCH has ONE number - 1-515-604-9107!  Just call this on Sunday mornings at 9am and you don't need an access code!  Makes worship, prayer and God's Word very accessible!  Oh, we now meet on Wednesdays at 9am, too, just for prayer.  We meet for about 30 minutes and pray.  Would love to have you join us.

Leaving a Leadership Legacy!  Please read the sermon or listen to the sermon from May 18, 2014, from 1 Peter 5:1-7.  We are all called to lead willingly, with humility and by example.  One very powerful way of leaving a leadership legacy is by putting a paragraph in our Last Will and Testament that leaves a specific dollar figure or a specific percentage of our estates to the body of Christ at West Grove Presbyterian Church.

West Grove Presbyterian Church is working very hard to make church simple, where everything we do is aligned to Know Christ and Make Christ Known.  We invite everyone into our fellowship, we study God's Word, we worship, we pray, and we work together to know Jesus Christ - the Savior of the world!  And, we diligently seek new ways to make this wonderful Savior known!

God's Extravagant Blessings to you all!
