EVERYONE CAN SERVE

Looking for a place to serve? We have just the spot for you! We are needing a couple more Sunday morning hostesses for our Fellowship Time. Contact the church office or Betty Drake. Thanks!

Look for opportunities to serve; don't wait to be asked!  Remember, you can serve without being a part of an "official" ministry. We all can:

  • Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
  • Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
  • Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evengelism team
  • Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONS

Many of us who love the church, have found that one of the most powerful life changing aspects of the church is being in a group of people that help and encourage us along the way. In fact most churches that are experiencing real growth have discovered that groups are really the way to help people with their spiritual journey and ministry. To this end the Vision Team has been wrestling with the best way to launch some long-term groups that are shaped and centered in encouraging each participant and educating them con-cerning the themes and message of the Bible. So we are going to begin these kinds of groups in what we have formally called for a number of years discipleship classes. We would like to recognize the function of the groups by calling them Connections. The emphasis being that of connecting with others and establishing the kind of contact that issues in accountability and its resultant fruit i.e. peace, joy, love. We expect some evolution in how these groups operate. What we do have is a beginning date: Sunday September 21st. More information will be coming up. (Watch weekly bulletins) This is going to be a significant opportunity for you and yours. It will include all ages. There will be new groups forming for those who consider themselves young adults that will be meeting at different times and perhaps in different loca-tions. If you feel disconnected this may be your time to find that connection in your church.

Working Pastor

Can you believe that we are into the holiday season already? Dianne just ordered flowers for the Sanctuary for Christmas! You are probably already full blown into planning your Thanksgiving celebration and those that are always first have some of their Christmas shopping completed. The little goblins will be knocking on our doors this Friday that is a sure sign that the holiday season is here.

For many of us this is our favorite time of the year. It is busy and we are often overstressed and under rested during this time but we still love it. Others have a different reaction to this time of year. A significant loss in our lives or separation from the family you love or some other unfortunate event, may keep us from getting into what is called the Christmas Spirit. Whatever side of that seasonal mood you find yourself on this year, I hope you take heart in knowing that the Holidays can be used of God to remind all of us of God’s love. God so loved the world that He gave. He still gives to us everyday that we are willing to open our hearts to Him. The things that really matter during the Holidays, like being together and being grateful for God’s blessings, are still the best part of the celebrations. I hope that in some way we all are able to take part with others in some significant way during the Holidays.

This being Thanksgiving, allow me to thank all of you for your support of our church and for my family. We have spent many Thanksgivings together and each one has been a reminder to me of how blessed of God I am to be your Pastor. Thank you for loving my family. Each one of them takes great joy in coming home and seeing you. That says a lot about how you cared for them while they lived in this wonderful place. Thanks for sharing the burdens of ministry. The occasional turbulence in the lives of our brothers and sisters and our own issues could get us down if it were not for those who continue to come beside and encourage and comfort. I am so grateful that we have a church that cares.

We are continuing to tweak the Worship Service for that which is most helpful and comfortable for all of us and all who we seek to engage for the Kingdom of God. I am even thankful that as a church we are willing to make changes that give us a better opportunity to win others and move on to minister to the next generation. Be at peace this season as you follow the Prince of Peace. Love to you!   -PK
