New Beginnings

And now a message from our pastor, the Rev. Dr. Charlie Close

The past year has been a year of expectation, gestation, investigation, conversation, and ultimately transition. And in a very real way, the same has been true for Canaan Congregational Church. We found each other; covenanted with each other; and decided to walk with each other into new chapters of our respective lives. This has been a time filled with new friendships and new relationships. Every time I spend time with you I feel blessed. Every time I head home from leading worship or attending a meeting, I feel content and happy.

. . . .

We have only just begun our journey together. I pray that everyone feels as blessed as I do. May God continue to bless us as we all do a new thing, and may we all continue to grow into the “beloved community.”

“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” – Isaiah 43.19
