Dear RSNY Church Family and Friends,
Your Regional Synod of New York would like to wish you and your families a very happy and healthy New Year! As you continue to gather this week, may your homes be filled with laughter, joy, and love as you reflect on the blessings of the 2021 year.
2021 provided us with many opportunities to demonstrate the strength of our RSNY Congregations in the midst of a pandemic, church renewal, General Synod – Vision 2020 and stormy disasters in the land. There was no greater proof of our harmony than the incredible prayer opportunities and encouragement of Ministers, Elders and Deacons during critical times in the life of the church. RSNY unity would not be possible without the groundwork laid by our Classes leadership through our Christian commitment to serve and proclaim the Good News as well as your continuing supportive prayers; thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our Church Communities. Though there is still more work to be done in our Regional Synod as there are uncertainties and brokenness in our church communities, we look to the New Year with utmost confident and hope for the One who called us is faithful.
I pray for you Abundant moments full of pleasurable memories of Joy, Love and Happiness in Christ!
May the new year bring you peace and joy, and may you continue to enjoy the fruits of your Christian labor in service to the families and communities in our Region.
Happy New Year,
Rev. Dr. Micheal Edwards, Interim Executive Minister the Regional Synod of New York
