Palm Sunday 2021- "From the Mouth of Babes"
Dear CCEW, Palm Sunday Greetings! In this coming weekend, Sunday not only marks the 1st day of us entering back into our beloved CCEW, Sunday is also Palm Sunday—no less important. It is the start of "Holy" week. Many ponder the reflections of Palm Sunday and the journey of Jesus. We respect "your" beliefs... however, as the journey of Jesus is believed by us.. we invite you to be reminded of the reason for the Easter Season... and so amongst all your busyness that goes on remember to reflect on Jesus and His resurrection. Yes, we enjoy the festivities of family get togethers, the hunting of "Easter" eggs and treating our children with "Easter" baskets, while believing in the reason for the season. May the Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus be yours in abundance. Be blessed. Enjoy. Respectfully submitted. We wish you all a wonderful and joyous Palm Sunday — and pleasant return! I look forward to our time together. Pastor David “DJ” Jefferson Jr
"I've Been Transformed"
Greetings CCEW - We are so glad that you will be joining us this week for the word of God, here at the Community Church of East Williston. I believe God honors those who are faithful in their service. I especially believe God is concerned about us and our faith in being transformed as good and acceptable in His sight. I am writing to encourage you to attend our virtual service on YouTube this week. I want to encourage you to be of good courage as we head into this Sunday message. Let it be a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. As you know many weeks and months have passed and we have not been able to gather together in person. I want to thank you for being steadfast and encouraging our ministry during these trying times. This week's message will spiritually guide and sustain you as you venture forth in faith. May God bless you and your families. Sincerely, Pastor David Jefferson Jr
"Are You Living the Holiness Lifestyle"
Greetings CCEW: This week we spring forward! Yes, we are moving forward and springing into the goodness of God! What a delight to be able to send you greetings from our blessed Community Church of East Williston. I'm praying that God is continuing to bless you and your families. This week we are focusing on living a holiness lifestyle. It is clear to see how time is swiftly moving. The pandemic, and Covid-19 as a whole, is starting to be more controlled as a result of the rollout of vaccinations across the country. I myself am extremely proud to inform you, I am fully vaccinated! As of this week I have engaged in the two week post my second shot. I want to be clear my faith is not in the vaccine but my faith remains in God with the vaccine. It is also encouraging to inform you that almost 90% of our staff has also been vaccinated as well. So as we head into another great weekend of worship together, we do so understanding that soon and very soon we will be meeting together and worshiping as Palm Sunday draws closer. I know you and your families are anxiously awaiting the doors of the church to once again be physically opened. Yet, we should be reminded the doors will not only be opened, but they will be opened along with a safety plan to keep us safe as we gather together for worship. We continue to look toward the hills which cometh our help. For as we know and are aware, our health and help comes from the Lord. I look forward to our time together. God Bless you. Pastor DJJ
