Pastor John Price: 


Ephesians 5:1,2 (Good News Bible) 
Since you are God's dear children, you must try to be like him. Your life must be controlled by love, just as Christ loved us and gave his life for us as a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice that pleases God. 
Pastor and Founder of the 
Lake Galilee Baptist Church. 
It has been my pleasure and honor as a servant of the Almighty God to lead and serve you as God's Shepherd. 
God requires us to be Holy because he is Holy, God requires us to love one anotheras he loved us. Thank God for his grace and mercy every morning when you awake. At night before you close your eyes, thank God for keeping you and watching over you. Daily work on your relationship with God, put God first in all you say and do. I love everyone. 
Jesus gave his life that we too should live. Introduce others to Jesus so that they might live as well. Be bold in your convictions knowing the Holy Spirit will speak for you. Your joy should come from serving the Lord as you "work" in the church and for your fellow man. Be joyous in your services and give yourself unselfishly to others, "God so loved the world that he gave." All these things I know you will do and more. 

I thank you for letting me serve you, which was "my joy." You have blessed me over these past 31 years and I know you will continue to let the Lord lead and Guide you as you prepare to venture on this new journey.
