Home from vacation! We had such a great time on our vacation to the northeast.....the colors were just gorgeous. We enjoyed the cool weather, and all the sights we were able to take in. It was so good to have time to read and relax.....but we missed our church family terribly! I was able to see the video of the Vision Day message that our pastor brought, and wow, I was ready to come home and get to work. The vision that he has outlined for our church in the next couple of years is a glorious challenge. Reaching people through small groups and discipleship, using our Sunday School as a catalyst for growth both in outreach and inreach, giving so the Kingdom of God in our community and around the world may advance, updating facilities --- it's going to be exciting to see what the Lord is going to do in our midst!
This Sunday, our choir will begin the service with one of our old favorites, "I Stand Upon the Rock Medley." Basses, it'll be your time to shine! This will also be a special day for our church as pastor will be preaching on what the Word of God has to say about elders. Our church will be selecting elders in the next couple of weeks to help lead us as we carry out the vision we believe the Lord has given us. You will be able to nominate those you'd like to see considered this Sunday. Pray that God will give us just the group of elders that we need.
We have four rehearsals before our Nov. 30 rehearsal night with Keron Jackson in preparation for our CHRISTMAS WITH KERON night of worship. We're going to have a great time with a great soloist who has a great testimony of how God can transform a life. Will you pray that the Lord will show you the people in your family, your work, your friends who you could invite to join us for this life-changing time?
