As we celebrate not just what God has done this past year, but also look back further to the past 30 years and beyond, I have been reflecting on faithfulness.

Faithfulness and a pioneering spirit – starting in 1889 in a tin hut; moving on to the Friends Meeting House in 1963; then outgrowing that and embarking on an ambitious building project in 1987 that is Elmwood Church.

Faithfulness in finance – during the building of Elmwood there were times when the membership didn’t know how the next bill would be paid. They had to trust God would provide and we see the testament of that today.

Faithfulness in the vision – God gave the Church leadership the vision to build Elmwood Church and see its people grow. That vision continues.

It is good to remember what God has done in Elmwood.

Looking ahead, may we continue to put our trust in Him and have faith that He will always be there to guide us and see His vision fulfilled.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way.”
Proverbs 3:5-6
