Everyone Can Serve
Look for opportunities to serve; don't wait to be asked! Remember, you can serve without being a part of an "official" ministry. We all can:
- Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
- Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
- Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evengelism team
- Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.
It is quiet here at the church at the moment. There is often the sound of happy children running and playing across the street. But school is out for the summer. I miss the activity. For a brief time next week we will be inviting the children to our campus for our annual Vacation Bible School. It will be loud and fun again for this exciting week.
This is a major ministry for our church. We have often been able to minister to well over a hundred children and many young helpers that will come together for the week. Many of these young people will make decisions to accept Jesus into their lives. We never know how dramatically this will impact them for the rest of their lives but we believe that it will. I want to thank all those that have been working on getting the program ready to go and to all those who will volunteer to work with the children during the week. It takes an amazing amount of people to staff the school.
I would like to give a special thanks to Tammy Thayn, our Director, who puts the program together each year and recruits the many workers. Also, Mike Diem has been working on the scenery and backdrops for the staging. This takes a lot of time and energy. I want to single him out for special recognition. Thanks Mike!
There is one thing that is quite apparent each year and that is we have many faithful
people who make Vacation Bible School a success. So whatever you do from supplying food for the snack, to teaching a class, to working as a helper, or in doing registration, I wish to thank you. And certainly please remember to pray. You are all making a real difference in the lives of children.
It is apparent to me that God is at work in our community. Satan attacks and God faithfully protects and intervenes. This is a common pattern and has been throughout time. I just wish to testify of the faithfulness of God . He never fails us. We will let Him down on occasion and our faith may waver when we see the opposition building around us. Let’s remember that God is able. Cast your lot with him and you will not be ashamed.
Here’s wishing you a wonderful summer! Spend lots of time with your family and friends. Enjoy the great place that God has given us to live. And certainly remember to gather together as Christ’s Church.
Love to each of you.

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONS
Many of us who love the church, have found that one of the most powerful life changing aspects of the church is being in a group of people that help and encourage us along the way. In fact most churches that are experiencing real growth have discovered that groups are really the way to help people with their spiritual journey and ministry. To this end the Vision Team has been wrestling with the best way to launch some long-term groups that are shaped and centered in encouraging each participant and educating them con-cerning the themes and message of the Bible. So we are going to begin these kinds of groups in what we have formally called for a number of years discipleship classes. We would like to recognize the function of the groups by calling them Connections. The emphasis being that of connecting with others and establishing the kind of contact that issues in accountability and its resultant fruit i.e. peace, joy, love. We expect some evolution in how these groups operate. What we do have is a beginning date: Sunday September 21st. More information will be coming up. (Watch weekly bulletins) This is going to be a significant opportunity for you and yours. It will include all ages. There will be new groups forming for those who consider themselves young adults that will be meeting at different times and perhaps in different loca-tions. If you feel disconnected this may be your time to find that connection in your church.
