Welcoming all to experience, connect, grow and share the love and hope of Christ
Next Saturday July 20th will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission when Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin declared to NASA’s mission control in Houston “the Eagle has landed.” Many of you remember exactly where you were, what you were doing, and who you were with when later that evening Armstrong stepped onto the moon surface. We make mental marks of such details surrounding big events we believe will have impact in our lives. For example, remember where you were on 9/11? Or Space Shuttle Challenger? Or the news of JFK or MLK? Or when the Berlin Wall fell? Does remembering them cause you to live any differently?
The book of Deuteronomy opens with a vivid description of where the Israelites were on the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, when Moses told them the Lord has said, “you have stayed at this mountain long enough” and it is time to go enter and take possession of the promised land. After almost 40 years of wandering in the desert the people were told it was time to go! I’m pretty sure they remembered where they were, what they were doing, and who they were with on that occasion. Did it make them live any differently? Perhaps for a while.
Do you remember where you were, what you were doing, who you were with when you first realized, or perhaps realized again, that the Creator of the Universe, God Almighty, really, really, really loved and loves you? Perhaps this has happened on more than one occasion. Did knowing this make you live any differently? It’s story worth sharing with others. We share about daily life events in the small fellowship gatherings called “Life Groups”. The encouragement participants encounter help them live differently. If you are curious, just ask about them. Wholeheartedly, Kevin
Centerville Blessing and School Supply Giveaway – This year on July 28th we will bless backpacks and give them away during our worship services, which will be followed by a free community lunch and outdoor inflatables and activities for the kids. We also spend time in our worship services blessing and praying for different aspects of our community. Want to help out? Here are some ways that you can be involved:
· Donate to our school supply fund by marking “school supplies” on your donation. We will take care of purchasing the supplies to match the list provided by the local elementary schools, and your financial help can help get us there.
· Bring food for lunch! We will provide the meat, but we would love for our church family to help fill out the feast!
· Invite, invite, invite! As we talked about in church on July 7th, inviting others to a meal is a great way to extend the hospitality of Christ to others. Anthony

Take a summertime excursion with the Issues & Answers class, meeting Sundays June 23rd-July 21st at 9:30, in their introduction to the Wesleyan Class Meeting format led by our Associate Pastor Kevin & Laurie Clotfelter. This is an opportunity to form small fellowships called Life Groups within our church vision to “connect” with each other. The Life Group concept is based upon the meeting format utilized early in the church renewal movement we now know as Methodism. Contact Don Hall or Kevin if you have interest or questions.
We meet on second room on the left as you enter Church's Administrative Wing
We know better. We should be able to do the right thing. But often, we go against our better judgment and give in. The Corinthian Christians were no different. They had listened to one false teaching after another—and they had believed what they heard. How many lies had they accepted? How many mistakes had they made? Their list of sins is long and ugly, much like ours. But Paul had patience with the Corinthians. He was disturbed but not despondent; angry but not desperate. His driving passion for them was love, and he saw hope for them. His letter confronts them and shows them how to lead a pure life. His letter to the Corinthians encourages all of us who need a spiritual check-up.The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.

"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"
