Congratulations to Carlos and Megan Northington who were joined in the Holy Matrimony Saturday September 7, 2019. It was a beautiful ceremony followed by a wonderful reception in the Family Life Center. I look forward to growing and continuing to be a part of their lives. 
Monday evening, I joined with 8 individuals and talked about life here at Jason Chapel.  It was a wonderful time getting to hear how families are connecting among us. In a membership class I tend to focus on relationships more than I do other areas. However, this time does allow me to speak about my duties and role as pastor and it allows me to speak to my personal theology and the Church of the Nazarene’s articles of faith and Chr…
