Happy New Year 2020
As we begin a new year, I want to wish you the Lord’s presence in all your endeavors. May the Lord be your strength, joy, and guide this year. There will be many new, unexpected, and challenging situations in which God will prove himself close to you. Therefore, strive your best in everything you do. The Lord loves righteousness and truth. Pursuing these two godly virtues will secure the Lord’s favor on your side.
Serve the Lord with joy, for the Lord rejoice in those who find their joy in him. Take time to serve others in the Lord’s name. This year opens up the door for many opportunities to serve. The Apostle Paul says that our work in the Lord is not in vain, and again that the Lord will reward us for everything we do. Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward” (Mark 9:41). Determine to do something in the name of Jesus for someone in need, at least once a week. Not only will you find great joy in doing it, but someone will give thanks to God for the love and compassion experienced that day.
On behalf of First Mennonite Church, Paso Robles, I want to wish you a blessed 2020.
In his Name,
First Mennonite Church in Paso Robles area was established in the Fall of 1897.
When Mennonites families from Germany, Russia and other US States came to California, they settled in the west of Paso Robles. Typically, wherever Mennonites go, they hold Sunday services.
So, at the beginning, these families met in homes. When more families came, they erected a church building in the San Marcos Ranch near Chimney Rock around 1898. Due to travel distances and some cultural differences the congregation divided. One group organized in Paso Robles in the fall of 1903; the other organized in San Marcos in 1904. In 1911 the San Marcos Church moved to the corner of Vineyard Drive and Dover Canyon Road. This church was known as the Willow Creek Church.
In January 1967, a fire consumed the Willow Creek Church building. The location where this church used to be is where the Willow Creek Mennonite Cemetery is.
After the fire the two groups began to meet in the Paso Robles Church.
From its beginning, neither of these congregations was large in numbers, but their presence and impact in the community is still on going.
It is our prayer to continue serving God as we keep serving our community, not in our own strength but in the Lord’s.
First Mennonite Church of Paso Robles is member congregation of Mennonite Church USA and a member congregation of the Pacific Southwest Mennonite Conference.
