First Day

Today was my first day as pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Wagoner, OK. I spent most of the day just simply setting up my office.

I had a really good Wednesday night service with the church tonight. You can read about it on the church's blog.

I am excited to see the response from the congregation during and after the service. I know everyone is excited to have a new pastor and that is part of it, but there seemed to be something else as well. I am really looking forward to seeing what God has for us all.

Pastor Rick,
God bless you as you begin your journey with 1st Baptist, Wagoner.

My Order prays for God's servants who are ministers, my I offer this prayer for you.

Almighty and everlasting God, by Whose Spirit the whole body of Your faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers which we offer before You for all members of Your holy Church, and most especially for Pastor Rick, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve You; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank you for your prayer and our new-found friendship.

One quick note, it is Immanuel Baptist, not 1st.

Blessings!

Rick
