Greetings From Pastor Deb
We have entered into the season of Advent. Advent (from the Latin word adventus, meaning "coming") is considered to be the beginning of the Church Year. The season is for most Christians one of anticipation and hope. For us, it is not just a celebration of a moment in time when a baby was born, but also looks beyond to a time when the Bible tells us that Jesus will come again, not as a vulnerable baby but in power and with authority.
Advent is also a spiritual journey that Christians take, through the truths of Scripture that point to the birth of Messiah, to a reaffirmation that he has come, is present in the world today and will come again in glory. As we enter into this new season of Advent, may we with great anticipation and newness await the birth of Jesus again in our hearts. May Jesus speak to us anew with the wisdom of the ages so we may be prepared for the things to come. Jesus is surely present in the world today and forever in our hearts. May we live each day throughout the year so others may be touched.
For 2016, Advent is a season of new beginnings for New Light MCC and the Fenninger-Coggin family. God has called us together for “such a time as this.” (Esther 4:14) My family and I are excited about this new adventure. It will be exciting to discover what God has in store for all of us.
As we begin our journey, I thought it would a good idea to share a little about the Fenninger-Coggin family. I hope in the coming months to learn more about all of you. Denise (Dee) and I have been together for 11 years and were married in July of 2014. In 2011, our lives changed forever when God brought 5 beautiful and amazing girls into our lives. Taty is18, Espy is16, Addy is13, Lola is 8 and Ella is 7. We and the girls legally became a family in March of 2013. Each year on this date, we celebrate “Gotcha Day.” They keep us very busy and have blessed our lives in ways that we never could have imagined. We also share our home in Lancaster, PA with 4 dogs – Zeke (16) a small poodle mix and the only male in our household; Jezebel (10) a rottweiler/chow mix; Shekinah (7) a yorkie/ bichon mix and Star (2) a black lab who drives us all crazy.
