From Your Pastor’s Heart
Have you turned in . . . your nomination form for our Deacon/Yokefellow ministry?
The forms are available in the foyer and in the Bible Fellowship Boxes on Sunday morning. We need you to prayerfully select Godly men who can serve as leadership in our church. If you will select the names, a team will go through the forms and begin the process of selecting and enlisting men to serve this next year. I appreciate these men so much who serve in our church. They are a blessing to me as pastor. Forms need to be returned to the office by July 9.
You won’t want to miss . . . our Patriotic Service on July 2! We will be changing up a few things as we seek to honor those who have faithfully served our country. The recognition time will be different. Instead of just asking people to stand when we honor each branch of service, we will be asking those who have served to come to the front of the sanctuary. It will be easier to see and honor each branch. Since our Memorial Day service was disrupted by the storm and power failure, we will recognize and honor those who have died serving our great nation. The message will be about recognizing the wonderful gift God has given us – FREEDOM. Our children will be joining us for this special service, so there will be no Kid’s Worship.
And speaking of the power failure . . . thank you for taking care of your giving, even though the service had to be cancelled. We seem to be “slowly” catching up on our budget needs. It could have been difficult after that Memorial Day Sunday if you had not been faithful in giving. Over the next few weeks, you gave tithes and offerings. THANK YOU. If you are still trying to catch up, we appreciate your giving to support our ministries.
We have two summer camps coming soon . . . Youth Camp and Kid’s Kamp. Both of these special events are in July and you know how much these ministries mean to our church. Every year young people come to know Christ as Savior and every year young people recommit their lives to Jesus. Pray for our counselors and our campers. Pray for God to work in the lives of our children and youth. Thank you for supporting these events with prayer and resources.
New Sermon series . . . concerning the Pastor’s Vision Statement. Beginning this coming Sunday, July 2, I will be preaching about my vision for our church and how we can begin to see God work in our community. Pray for me as I seek God’s Word for our people.
