Pastoral Letters are weekly communications from our church pastor to the congregation.  They are mostly original reflections on the Word of God in response to church events or current affairs, local or beyond, with the primary intent to exhort Christians to live rightly before God in the real world.  Short bibliographies are sometimes featured towards the same end.

We pray that these writings will be a great blessing to you!

Why Did Covid-19 Happen?

During last Tuesday prayer meeting, I shared that some professing Christians, who preach the health, wealth and prosperity gospel, confidently announced that the Covid-19 virus was not sent by God.
