Have you noticed? God is up to something! The sanctuary is filling up. People are joining. We had the best VBS we have had in a long time. There is excitement in the pews. Hallelujah! We serve an unbelievable, awesome God!
Meet our new members. Over the last 4 months God has been calling people to be a part of what He is doing in this place. 1. Crystal Jones 2. Chris Bakalekos 3. Beth and Jim Pool We are so glad to have them be a part of the fellowship. They have jumped right in to service and are shoulder to shoulder with the other ministry minded members.
Outreach Our Vacation Bible School gave us the names of several children and families that we need to reach out to for ministry and sharing Christ. It seems the time is right for us to institute a day and time for church wide visitation. We can visit anytime but it is good to have a designated day of Outreach into our community. Monday evening seems like the best time to visit those who have been our guests the day before. The best minds tell us we have a 48-hour window of opportunity to call upon those who visited us. Be praying with me about starting up an Outreach Evening. Of course, in our social media laden world there are many other ways to connect with people and we need to do this but there is nothing like taking the time to visit someone’s home. It says you care.
Lake Day I know some of you are studying the August church calendar looking for Lake Day. It will be held this year, but it has been moved into September to see if we can escape the extreme heat we experienced last year. We’ll see. The new date is Sunday, September 16.
Youth Program Our youth program will start up again for the year on Wednesday evening August 15. Please pray for the workers and the youth who attend that Christ will be proclaimed and young people will follow Christ.
Prayers Thank you for your prayers. Kathy is still battling with some difficulties. We do not have a clear diagnosis, but she is on some medication that is helping. You have been so kind to both of us and we appreciate it so much. I love being your pastor, Scott
