WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Summer vacation for our children has started already for some and the rest will come out of the school door for the last time very soon. My guess for some, it will be a carefree summer. For others, it will be learning more things the schools can’t provide.
Our teachers are amazing people who dedicate their lives to educate our children for us with grace and dignity. They don’t just teach the children subjects but many spend extra time teaching all the essentials of life. Things like good manners, respect and having a positive influence in their lives.
We on the other hand have a God given responsibility to help these teachers in ‘training a child’ in the village of life. They’re something else. We the village of faith need to show our children God, Christ and the Holy Spirit, in such a way that they know the truth about John 3:16. But also the truth that our dark world wants to cover up.
Take the summer to show our children God’s love.
Friendship Sunday, June 30th 11:00am – The fifth Sunday of June is that special Sunday where we invite friends or family members to church. We want them to join us here. The goal is not to just put another person in a chair but move a person to a new or renewed faith in Christ. Take this opportunity to invite someone this coming week and help them get here.
Farewell to David & Jonas, July 28th 11:00pm – It has been wonderful to have these two gentlemen with us this past year as they attended the church while on a one year program working with YFC and ReSoul next door. They also offered their youth and strength in working around the property.
SEPT. IS COMING
