Welcoming all to experience, connect, grow and share the love and hope of Christ
Life moves fast, and sometimes that means we miss things. We might overlook a person because we are too busy to notice them; we might miss an opportunity because we are occupied with something else; and we might miss a chance to make a difference in someone’s life because we simply overlooked the need. This Sunday and the following three weeks, we are looking to STOP. And make sure we don’t miss out!
ICWMT stands for “In Case We Missed Them” and it will cover topics we have covered before (specifically from 2016-2017), but where we might need a refresher. Each week also pertains to a certain group of people and a certain set of opportunities, which we definitely do not want to miss! So don’t miss “them” – the topics we are revisiting, and the people and opportunities that come along with them.
This Sunday we will cap off VBS week with a time of celebration. At both services we will watch a video of highlights and hear a little bit about what a special week we have had. This is a chance for families that participated to celebrate, as well as for the whole church to catch a little bit of the experience. Our message for this week ties in directly with how we as families and as the church invest in the next generation, so you don’t want to “miss” this week!
· THANK YOU!!!– The past two Sundays have blown me away, and Emma and I are so grateful for the love and support of this congregation. The beautiful doctoral robe was a tremendous gift, and the surprise “welcome back” breakfast and love offering gift exceeded all of our expectations. This Sunday officially marks the beginning of my fourth year as the pastor here, and our family feels so blessed to be here. I look forward to continuing to serve alongside Kevin and the leaders of this church, as we seek to “welcome all to experience, connect, grow, and share the love and hope of Christ” with the community around us.
· Capital Improvement and Van Funds – At the beginning of the month we shared about some projects we have identified that are of high importance to complete within the next year. In total we have identified $51,700 worth of capital improvements (roofing, painting, flooring, etc) plus the purchase of a $30,000 passenger van as goals to raise outside of the budget this year. You are invited to begin designating gifts for either the “capital improvements” and/or “van” funds.
· Lunchtime Summer Book Study – This summer we are reading the book “Welcome to Dinner Church” by Verlon Fosner, and we have begun a four-week group discussion at 11:30am on Tuesdays. This is a “brown bag lunch” gathering (i.e. bring your lunch with you), and you can still join! We have books available for purchase for $10, and we have three meetings left on June 18th(ch. 2-4) and 25th (ch. 5-6), and July 2nd (ch. 7-8 & conclusion).

"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"
