Pondering From the Pastor


Dear Friends at Lake Eunice,

I cannot believe how short the daylight hours have already become, and we are still in September as I write this. Already I’m starting to see certain birds begin to flock up, I hear waterfowl hunters blasting away at the earliest possible light, and the leaves are falling off the trees like rain at the slightest possible breeze.  As you read this, it will soon be October, with only two and half months till Christmas. Wow!

            In October we have lots to look forward to, we have our Missionaries from France, Mike and Emilie Gibbons coming on Saturday, the 5th, then it is our annual Harvest Festival coming up on the 13th, guys, get your pies ready! Then we have our Annual Meeting on the 20th where we rejoice in what God has accomplished the last year and look forward to another great ministry year at Lake Eunice. Then it is our annual Family Fun Night on the 31st. We have lots to be thankful for. The absolute key to a successful year for our church will be how much we focus on prayer for our various ministries. Our leadership team focuses on a different ministry for prayer each month we meet. I urge you also to continually lift up our various ministries for prayer, the future of our church depends on it.

            We have several wonderful opportunities for ministry in the coming year, such as the Voice of the Martyrs Action Packs that are out in the foyer, please take one and use the list to fill it. The one request that comes with almost every communication I get from them is requesting more action packs. This directly impacts persecuted Christians from around the globe, often in areas where war has decimated their country. Secondly, is the Health Resource Center Banquet that is coming up on October 6th, I’m hoping you will consider attending this important fundraiser for them. They are a local ministry on the front lines of the effort to save babies from abortion in this area. Operation Christmas Child Shoebox drive will be in November where we can send hundreds of shoeboxes across the world to places where we will never go and share the love of Jesus with people we will never meet. Then there will be another opportunity to fill Feed My Starving Children meals again at the Scheels center in Fargo in February as we did last year. We were part of the event in Detroit Lakes where 108,880 meals were filled. This is a cutting edge ministry dedicated to saving lives from certain starvation. This is just a couple of opportunities the Lord will use us for in the coming year.

            So as we look forward to a new year which starts on October 1st, we have a lot to rejoice about and Praise the Lord for at Lake Eunice. May God bless this coming year with lots of fruit for the His kingdom.               Pastor Dale
