The Summer is full of vacationing and visiting relatives. We feel the warmth calling us to get outside to the beach, the campsite, the garden, or baseball game. Sadly, the summer goes by too fast and we return to a familiar schedule that includes the work grind and school year. We trade sunshine for hectic schedules, and long, warm days for cold evenings.
That said, I do love the fall. And if we minimize the Distractions that come with it we can use it as a season of renewal. So, join the fun for Back to Church Sunday, September 16th, which will include a ministry fair to meet our ministry team leaders and celebrate the start of a new season in growing together. I will lead an extended greeting time for worshippers to visit tables in the back of the sanctuary with our variety of ministries and mission endeavors. You will be invited to get informed and get involved. Sign ups will include our ongoing ministries as well as a special invitation for a new year of Family Life Ministries for children, youth, LIFE Groups, SHARE Groups, and the TO-GET-HER Conference sponsored by Women Connecting with Jesus on October 6th.
I count our blessings with each ministry leader who serves to lead our many weekly and monthly meetings and plan our special events that inspires others to grow in their faith in Jesus. For “there is no other name by which we are saved.” (Acts 4:12).
Put “Back to Church” on your calendar this fall. There’s something for everyone and, for everyone, a place to belong.
