Pastor's first post

Hello to all!  My name is Ken Gunter and I am the new Pastor here in Saratoga.  This is my first time to post a blog with more to come later.  My wife Jayne and I are happy to be serving the Lord here.  If you do not have a Church home you are welcome and encouraged to come.  My the Lord bless you on this Memorial Day weekend!  Jesus said "Come unto me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, nd I will give you rest."

Friends

Thank you to all our visitors this summer and this fall. For letting us get to know and visit with you. To all of our hunters, and beautiful musically gifted friends. Your are a testament to us all. To our missionaries friends and the many wonderful stories that they shared with us. And for giving us the gospel message of salvation. And He said to them," Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15  A big thank you toJames Scottfor his powerful messages during the time he was preaching here and the experiences that he shared with us.

Fall Mornings

Each fall morning is a reminder that winter will soon be arriving. Here in the valley families are busy with a new school year, football games and volleyball. Making the most of the remaining hours in a day. Take time each morning before the start of your busy day to read and reflect on God's word in prayer. To everyone, have a God Bless filled day.

FBC 5-Year Missions Giving

For the last 5 1/2 years I've served as pastor, I've been truly blessed and excited about the amount of money we've given to missions.  This includes LCMO & AAEO mission offerings, Christmas Eve special offerings, & Gideons.  
The grand 5 year total:  over $8,900.  Wow!  It's great to be part of such a giving church.  Many lives have been changed and encouraged by our giving.  Keep up the great work.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Thank you to all who gave.  Our goal was $400 and we collected $315 which is awesome.  This offering combined with other SBC churches, goes directly to the field where our church planting missionaries serve across the USA & Canada.

Christ's Death & Resurrection

As we celebrate the season, remember it's not about bunnies or eggs, but Jesus Christ and His great love for you on the cross and that because He lives you and I can face tomorrow.  If you desire the hope of forgiveness, grace, mercy, and hope of eternal life with Him in heaven, then just ask Him through a simple ABC prayer:
A - Admit that you are sinner in need of God's forgiveness.
B - Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for you to forgive you.
C- Confess your sins to Jesus and ask Him to come into your life to change you and help you live for Him.

March Into Missions

We are excited again this year to pray and give to our North American Missionaries.  Many of them serve as church planters and catalysts through our North American Mission Board and serve all across the country starting churches and reaching communities with the love Jesus Christ.
Our annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering we will collect this month goes directly to the mission field to support our church planting missionaries.  Our church goal this year is:  $400.  Pray how you would give to support this vital ministry.

Super Bowl Sunday Fellowship

Thank you to all who joined us with Platte Valley Christian Center for their Super Bowl Fellowship Sunday night.  We had a great turn out with 4 churches represented.  The chili cook-off was great with 7 types of very good chili from which our 8 judges chose winners.  The half-time prayer time was wonderful and the entire evening was a fun and relaxing time.  Thank you Pastor Gene for inviting all of us.  We hope to do this again in the future.
