At the dawn of the new year I'm filled with hope for what is to come, and I have thankfulness in my heart for what has already passed. I pray that I will keep my focus where it needs to be this year and that we'll all have a year filled with joy, love and happiness.                                     Psalm 96: 1-3

   A Message from WITHIN MINISTRIES    

The new year has arrived, and along with it we all have new goals, high aspirations and fresh hopes for the coming year!

This past year has been a difficult one for many of us. So much despair and many hard times. Who would have ever thought or predicted as we entered 2020 a year ago, what the year would all entail. But hopefully we found joy and happiness in the small things we could control.

As we ring in the new year, it’s important to remember that we can find contentment in God. We can’t know what is coming in the new year, but we can find hope in God’s word, and maintain a positive outlook that things will be better. We pray for a year filled with health, happiness and joy!

Our partnership with Retreat, Reflect, Renew Ministry continues. This retreat ministry offers online, personal, and day retreats to help you sort through your relationship with yourself, others, and God in a gentle, non-judgmental, and welcoming place.
