We’re glad you are here today as we conclude our “Revive Weekend” this morning! David Bronson preaches at 8:45. There will be about 35 minutes between his sermon and Monte Shinkle at 10 a.m. so enjoy the fellowship. The entire weekend was designed to spiritually refresh and recharge you. We trust you took advantage of that and have been blessed!

Monte and his wife Betty have been married for 49 years. Monte pastored four churches in a ministry that started in 1973. He has preached many conferences and revivals. He pastored Concord Baptist Church in Jefferson City, Mo. for more than 30 years. I was their associate pastor in the mid-2000s. They have been blessed with four children and twelve grandchildren. Serving Jesus and loving their family is their greatest joy. He’s been at West Haven before, and we are grateful he’s spent his weekend with us.

Tara and I have three children, and David is our oldest son. He served here for several years, leading worship. He also served at another church in Missouri. He and his wife Margaret and their four children live in Pottstown, Pa., where he is the Vice-President of Marketing and Sales for Glick’s Exteriors. He also serves with the Luke 10 Network.

Next week, we resume on our series on “Jesus’ Parables: Wisdom For Life.” I hope you’ll be here for that. Be sure to note the Nov. 18 “Vision 3:16” Mission Trip meeting. This is an informational meeting. If you are praying about going, or have questions, Nathan and Larry Merry will be there to help you.

I trust this has been a weekend of encouragement and enrichment! Lord bless you and your family today!
