From The Zimmerman Family

2015 has been a wonderful year for our family, and we are thankful we have been able to share it with so many of you. Thank you to so many who have given wonderful words of wisdom and encouragement to both Sara and I as “two became one” this year and a special thank you to those who worked so hard to help make May 15th so special for us.  We look up to so many of you for your wonderful example as we begin our lives together. You have been a great blessing and encouragement in our lives, and we are so fortunate to be a part of this congregation. We love each of you.

2015 has been a wonderful year for our young people. Within our group of young people we have added two precious souls to the church. We have averaged a high attendance at our bi-weekly devotionals and activities. We have managed to attend several significant events in 2015 such as Challenge Youth Conference in Gatlinburg, Backwoods Christian Camp, SEC at Faulkner University and in just a few days we will leave for Exposure Youth Camp in Huntsville AL.  Thank you to each of our parents who have made it a priority in 2015 to ensure your children are active in their participation of activities, you and your children encourage by the priority you place on spiritual activities and growth.

Lastly, 2015 has been a wonderful year for our congregation. Our studies on “growth” in 2014 impacted this year significantly because many of you continued working diligently to continue growing. It has been an exciting few weeks because of the instillation of our two new Deacons, and the consideration of two additional Elders to work with this congregation. 2015 has been a very impactful year for the church here at Logan Martin. Thank you to everyone who has spent time contributing to the growth here.

2015 brought changes and challenges, and 2016 will likely do the same. Two particular scriptures come to mind when I think about challenges ahead. Paul penned these words “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13), and also the words “And above all things put on love, which is the bond of perfect unity” (Col 3:14). The world has changed, and the world’s view of the church has changed, and when 2016 presents its own unique challenges the church at Logan Martin will continue to shine strong while God remains the head of this congregation and we have the genuine love for one another God expects of His children. Thank you to each one of you who has made this a wonderful year, and I am looking forward to the year ahead!
