Happy New Year
Greetings Club Zion family, my prayer and desire for the local body for the year 2020 is that God would bless you with joy, strength, hope and excitement to face another year.
Our family here in Cocoa Beach and Brevard County is blessed beyond measure, filled with God’s grace and showered in His mercy. We can only stand in awe of our profound gratitude and humble reality of our position in Christ Jesus. You have been my joy and purpose over the last 21 years as God has allowed me the great privilege of being your pastor. You are truly the light of the world and your brightness radiates the glory of God throughout not only Brevard County but the world, as I have watched God touch countless lives through all of you. Your desire for truth in God’s word has always been an encouragement to me. And your passion for worship towards our Savior is contagious and inspiring.
As we say goodbye to 2019, we realize the losses we have grieved and the victories we have won. We have opened our eyes to the reality of the world’s absurdity and joyfully acknowledge the absolutes of God’s divine plan. In all the world’s confusion, we have never lost faith, shrunk back, or remained stagnant. Throughout the year we have persevered with all diligence and steadfastness. You are God’s chosen people, a holy priesthood and warriors standing on the front lines of spiritual battles.
We never give up hope. We remain faithful because we trust in an everlasting God who is sovereign in all His ways. As we look towards the future, our hope is to protect the unborn children, to unite the body of Christ regardless of denominations in Christ Jesus, to co-labor with all churches for the sake of the gospel and be willing to serve our community to the best of our ability.
Some of the ways we will achieve this is through CityServe. We are working through our local school system providing for the needs of children and families, helping with tutoring for children falling behind, pastoral counseling, school renovation projects, and whatever other means the school deems necessary. We serve the schools at their request based on their needs as they see fit. Thus, being a true servant for the school system.
I also met with our City Manager and Mayor and have communicated our desire to serve the community in whatever basic needs come up such as: Crisis situations, special events, spiritual guidance, assisting the elderly and whatever needs the city deems necessary. We will be hosting a one-day surf camp on March 21 through Space Coast CityFest. We are involved in the CityFest in Viera where thousands will gather in the name of Christ on March 28. We are going to Washington, DC for the March for Life. We will be involved in all these opportunities as well as all the other activities that we annually present to our community.
I am geared up and ready to make 2020 the launch of a very busy year for Club Zion Community Church. I will need all of your help so please be praying about your role in the 2020 year as we serve Christ together.
Again, I want to thank you for your grace and mercy in giving me the privilege and honor to serve as your pastor at Club Zion Community Church.
Sincerely yours, Pastor Keith
