From The Minister’s Desk 

”  . . . for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day . . .”

Acts 17:11

Summer is upon us! Even the “dog days” are here. 95+ degrees is plenty warm. It provides us with a great chance to stay in the cool and read our Bibles,- like the above-mentioned Bereans. I hope you are still placing a great deal of emphasis on reading God’s Word. There are a couple of other things I want to have you keep in mind for the rest of this month:
  • I hope everyone has an opportunity to get away, even if only for a short day trip this summer. It’s a chance to unwind and reset for Fall.
  • Please put on your September calendar our big event, “The Gathering” at the park. The singing group “Spirit Fire” will be here to share a concert with us at the park at 10:30 a.m. on September 9. Then, like always, we will follow worship with the Barbecue potluck. Plan to bring a friend and enjoy!
  • School starts on Sept 4 and 5, depending on the age of the students.
  • Our Fall program will kick off on Sunday, September 2 with the new schedule of our Amor groups (places and times).
For the most part, as you receive this newsletter, summer will almost be over. It is a funny thing, we can’t wait for it to start, we then complain when it is too hot, then it is over and we wonder where it went. Hope you are having a great Summer!
Because of Him,   

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”


II Chronicles 7:14
