From the Pastor's Desk...
Summer is Here! What a blessing it is that July has kicked off with cooler temps. Most of you will certainly be enjoying the Fourth of July with family and friends celebrating our nation’s freedom. Freedom that allows us to pursue our dreams, to live where we desire, believe what we want and yes, worship the way we see fit. Yes, it is a choice but more importantly it’s a privilege and responsibility to worship our Creator and Lord.
Our freedom from sin came with a price we would have never been able to pay. It was purchased by Jesus and actions that only HE could do on the Cross of Calvary. When you ponder your freedoms this Fourth of July, do not forget the greatest freedom of all, freedom from sin’s punishment purchased by the unblemished Lamb of God crucified on the cross.
As you gather with family and friends this summer, my prayer for you is that you richly enjoy your time, your travels are safe and you make fond memories in being together. Keep in mind that God will be giving you opportunities to make him known as you go. As he blesses you, remember to bless others and thank him for all he has done for you.
VBS is back July 21 – 25! It’s the Colossal Coaster Ride! Prayer warriors and volunteers are still needed. Also, remember our young people and adult leaders as they travel to and from Wickes, Ark and Camp Bogg Springs July 8 – 12. There are also new opportunities for service/ministry in our church, just ask any of our ministry leaders for details.
In closing, this summer do not forget to make it a priority to support your church by the commitment of your prayers, fellowship and encouragement, attendance and the resources God has blessed you with. God Bless each one of you!
