Thoughts from Pastor Christian
Greetings and thank you for stopping by to check in on Chestnut Hill Church!
What a great privilege and honor it is to be a part of such a loving group of faithful Christians and I have great hope for our future together. We are venturing into new territory and looking forward to reaching out to our community in new and exciting ways. Of course we still have all of our favorites too, which you can find in other areas of our website!
As a pastor, I have to say that my greatest honor is to watch folks become more closely connected with God through study and prayer. Our family, and we are very much a family, has shown me what it means to care for one another through prayer. The other thing that I am truly blessed to say each week is that we live out our statement, “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!” And we do live that out with our loving welcome to all who join us in worship and activities.
As we move into the future together, I am reminded that Jesus taught us to open to the new as well as the traditional. We are a traditional kind of people in that we live richly into our heritage as a German Reformed congregation but we also have opened our hearts to the still speaking God of today in finding new and exciting ways to engage and be a part of one another’s lives.
There is so much for us to learn from one another and so much for us to give thanks for, so “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NLT).
Peace and blessings, Christian Creyer
