Annual Church Picnic Aug 24th @ 12:30 pm
Next Sunday, August 24th at Noon-Thirty, is our Annual Church Picnic. Mac & Janet McLean are hosting us at their home, 4401 Beeman Road. A pool is available for those who would like to swim. The church will provide the hamburger/hot dogs and the beverages. Please bring a salad or dessert.
Also that same day, missionaries Karry & Charlyn Kelley will be sharing their work with World Team Ministries during Sunday's service.
A few years ago Dianne and I decided to make some improvements to our house. Some of these improvements were probably not necessary in order to live in the house. In fact most of them were not necessary. But after the new carpet and flooring was in place and the new furniture purchased, we realized how much nicer it was to live in that house. Then when the air conditioning came a few years later and a new roof that didn’t need repairing after every rainstorm on the garage and house was completed, things were a lot better for the current residents. I hope that the remodeling of the church in some
areas will also be seen as improvements.
Some times just little things can make a big difference in how we are viewed and how the space is utilized. As you can see by the included photos, we have been doing some work on both the entrance to and the interior of the church.
These modifications are not necessarily cosmetic. They are made in order for us to be more effective at carrying out our mission of
attracting people to our church and then discipling them to be followers of Jesus. As each of you invite your friends and neighbors to Jesus and to our church we want the environment to be very welcoming. We desire for the worship and the messages to be glorifying to the Lord and helpful to the worshippers. We have already seen, in the short time that we have had the pre-service coffee time, a positive impact on those coming. Some folks just driving by have seen the tables and coffee cart and because of that have stopped to spend the morning with us. So far the cost of the modifications has been very minimal. But we are trusting that the impact will be significant. It is my hope that you reading this, will continue to pray for us and beyond that get involved with us in building a church that honors our Lord and expands His Kingdom in the world. -Pastor Keith

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.
