Greetings my not-yet friends!
Welcome to Plattsburgh Church of the Nazarene! I'm Jon Farmer, Interim Pastor here at the Naz. Born and raised in San Diego, CA and having spent 30+ years in Tucson, AZ and then last year in Anchorage, AK, my wife Connie and I are thoroughly enjoying Upstate New York. It's amazing how many different little worlds are included in our great Nation!
You're gonna love Plattsburgh Naz! We are a wonderful mix of folks in every season life. From college to young families, from blue and white collar seasoned professionals to the recently retired, from the young in body to the young at heart, we offer new friendships all along the spectrum of human experience.
We take the Bible seriously here. Every automobile has a "motor manual", describing what it's designed for, how it will function most efficiently and how to maintain and repair it. The Bible is that manual for us human types. Nothing could be more practical for life this side of eternity. Come, let's learn from it together.
One of my favorite movies is the little known "Band Slam". It has almost as many quotable quotes as "Princess Bride". In it we're encouraged "to always do what scares you". I realize that taken too far, this could be dangerous! But along my journey I've discovered that the things most important to my growth, also scare me the most. Finding a church home can be scary, but don't back off. God has something very special for you, just around the corner.
I look forward to meeting you and enjoying our journeys together!
Live blessed!! Pastor Jon
