The Village of Goldonna is gearing up for the New Year and the endless possibility of good things to come. I was blessed to be able to visit with area residents as they shared their resolutions and thoughts for 2022.
Pastor Tim Harris from Goldonna Assembly of God shared that they will be hosting a watch night prayer service on December 31st beginning at 8:30pm and will continue until midnight. This will start the new year with a community service that will include a night of singing praises to our Savior.
Everyone is encouraged to bring their favorite finger food to share and everyone is even welcome to sing their favorite song. At 11:30 the lights will be turned down low with praise music playing and corporate prayer will begin and continue through the New Year.
Pastors Tim and Pam Harris were gracious enough to share their New Year’s Resolution which included, “to simply be the servants to the people of Goldonna that God has called us to be always striving to draw closer to Jesus through the power of the Holy Ghost”.
River of Life Church is starting a 21 day fast for the New Year on January 1st. Everyone is invited to participate. Sunday services begin at 10:30 and they are always opened up with a time for sharing testimonies. Come by and share some good news with the church members.
Pastor George Procell wants everyone to know that, “2022 is going to be a blessed year and always remember that nothing is impossible with God, Happy New Year from River of Life”.
Goldonna Baptist Church Pastor Jason Womack sends his New Year’s Blessing:
“For this Christian, New Year is a time for spiritual reflection and self-examination. Too often I have more negative memories than positive ones to reflect on over the preceding year. I try not to beat myself up too badly over this by responding to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, repenting and seeking to draw closer to God each day. I find comfort in the Word of God found in 2 Corinthians 5:17 where Paul wrote, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see the new has come!” We are a new creation and we are not perfect. Growing in Godliness my friends, is a marathon and not a sprint. Therefore get up, dust yourself off and seek to be made more like Jesus each day. Then help your brothers and sisters in Christ do the same. Oh yeah, the end of Christmas and beginning of the New Year reminds me that Crawfish season is just around the corner! I love living in Louisiana!”
– Mayor Jennifer Smith
“I would like to pray blessings over the people of Goldonna and the surrounding areas. I pray that God draw each and every heart towards him into a deeper covenant with him. I pray God’s love and blessings to evident in our heart and lives.” – Ben Dupree
My New Year’s resolution is to treasure each and every moment with family because we’ve seen how quickly things can change. To be thankful always and maybe to get a little healthier. The last will obviously be the toughest! – Town Clerk Candace Paul Smith
