This week there are two big things that I want you to know… but before we get there, a brief word on this Sunday. After two years of trying to figure out what it will take for our church to fully turn the corner and grow into our full potential, I think I have figured out a big part of it. What is that big part? We will unpack it on Sunday as we explore chapter four of Ephesians! There are a few other parts as well, and we will be exploring those this fall. It is going to be a fun season for our church, so get ready!
Now for the “two big things”:
Party Time! - Come ready to party on Sunday morning, July 29th! We will be blessing backpacks that we will distribute to kids in surrounding neighborhoods, that belong to clients of our Food Pantry, and to students at Centerville Elementary School. We figured this was one good reason to celebrate, so we are planning a cookout and bringing in some inflatables and games for the kids and their families to enjoy. Then we realized it would be Judith’s last Sunday with us (you can read more about this in Jan’s note about Judith), and we want to celebrate her ministry as well. So we are going to celebrate both with one big party! Here’s all that you need to know: 1) We will be assembling backpacks with school supplies for the kids in our area by using some of our designated funds (if you want to contribute you still can by marking your checks “backpacks”); 2) We will pray over these backpacks at both services on July 29th; 3) At the 10:30 Service that day we will give out the backpacks to any kids that join us for worship; 4) Also at the 10:30 Service we will enjoy worshiping with Judith one final time; 5) Immediately after the service we will have a covered dish lunch to celebrate the new school year and Judith’s ministry with us, and you can help by bringing a side and/or dessert (the church will provide fried chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs); 6) After everyone eats there will be a chance for kids to play on the inflatables, and hang out until 1:30pm; 7) By now you should have gotten the picture that July 29th is a day that you do not want to miss, so mark your calendars and invite your friends!
Conversation Time! – Save the date for Wednesday, August 1st. We will have our first dinner of the fall, and the program that night will be unique. With Kevin being new and me entering my third year, we wanted to use August 1st as an opportunity to learn from all of you about your thoughts and dreams for us and for the church. We will be utilizing a scaled down version of a process called “On-Boarding” (Re-Boarding in my case) that business consultants use to acclimate executives that are new to a company as quickly as possible. We will be exploring three questions, and we invite you to think about these three in advance: 1) What do we want to know about Kevin? 2) What are our hopes and dreams for our church? 3) What do we want most from the leadership of our pastoral team? We look forward to hearing from you all and discussing these topics together! Anthony

"The Real Heaven--What the Bible Actually Says... What comes to your mind when you think about Heaven? Clouds? Harps? Angels? Singing? Now, honestly, does that really sound like a great way to spend eternity? The good news is, that is NOT what Heaven is like. And when you discover what really awaits you there, it will radically change your view of your future and of Heaven. In this 3 part series from Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we'll do there, what we'll experience and how we're to prepare for eternity today. Join the Seekers SS Class as we discover the amazing truth of what awaits us all in Heaven"
