As we experience growth, we realize members need prayer and the opportunity to share new ideas and suggestions for continued development. You are encouraged to pray and share ideas with the Diaconate. If this procedure is followed, it will allow Pastor the time he needs for prayer, research and sermon preparations. Requests for early afternoon and late evening appointments with the Pastor have been overwhelming which limits his time to visit ministry meetings, rehearsals and outside meetings to help move Macedonia forward. Appointments will be available during the mornings and early afternoons Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We ask your indulgence and not seek to meet with Pastor between Sunday morning services and also after the 10:45 service, as he needs to replenish himself spiritually and physically. Your cooperation is sincerely appreciated.
