A Time of Anticipation, Hope, and Joyful Living

Dear Members of the Presbytery of the James,

As the season of Easter draws near, it is with great excitement that we reach out to you, our beloved community of faith. Easter is a time of renewal, anticipation, and hope, as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This remarkable event lies at the heart of our faith, inspiring us to embrace the promise of new beginnings and the assurance of God's eternal love.

In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to hold onto the message of Easter, recognizing that through Jesus Christ, we are granted the gift of hope. The empty tomb reminds us that no obstacle is insurmountable, no darkness too profound, and no burden too heavy when we have faith in God's grace and the transformative power of His love.

The Presbytery of the James is dedicated to supporting leaders, congregations, and ministries in growing followers of Jesus Christ who joyfully live out God's mission in the world. As we celebrate Easter, let us take this opportunity to renew our commitment to our mission, and strengthen our bonds with one another as a community of believers.

Together, we can spread the message of hope, love, and redemption that Easter brings, touching the lives of countless individuals in need of comfort and encouragement. By sharing our faith and supporting one another in our spiritual journey, we become a beacon of light in a world that desperately needs the grace and love of Jesus Christ.

In Christ,

The 3 Presbyteers,

Barbara C, Leigh Anne, and Flo
