a blog from our pastors and staff
I wanted to write to you this week in encouragement that God is alive and well in the world today. I feel that Christians feel so isolated in this large world that we have. Living in Western New York, I feel that way a lot of times. We need to remember that we have a body of Christ right around the corner at our local church. I know it is hard to get to know others and going to church can sometimes not be what we want to do on a Sunday morning, but God is worth our time. God is worth the effort. And you will be better for the time that you plug in to God's work here on earth and get with a good Christian community of believers. And ultimately that it what it comes down to, our choice to plug in and spend effort with God and others.
Many of us have strong opinions and various view points on a wide variety of issues, but lets not let this separate us, for we are together in Christ! I truly believe that those who proclaim Christ most often have more in common then different.
Though I am an Assistant Pastor at Hillside Wesleyan Church in Olean, I encourage you to plug in to your local church where you are. But if you are in the Olean area, do not have a group of Christian believers to plug in with, or feel that you want to find out more about our church, come here. I should be there just about every Sunday morning at 10:45am. Come and talk with me and maybe we can have a coffee in Christian fellowship.
Oh, and I hear the worship at Hillside is pretty good too.
Thanks for reading,
Andrew Fidurko, Assistant Pastor (Worship Leader)
