  • I have really been challenged by my time preparing for the new sermon series “No Excuses.” The extended title is “Live with No Excuses, Love with No Regrets.” I have been reminded at how easy it is to become a “sloppy Christian.” I am excited about what the Lord is going to do in us as we tighten up our walk with Him.
  • The gals had another great Ladies Discipleship group this weekend. It is exciting to see the Lord working in hearts and lives.
  • I got a notice this week that the Hearing for our Conditional Use Permit will be reopened to provide the Hearing Examiner with answers to her questions on the Traffic Issues raised by the City of Port Orchard. It looks like this hearing will be October 26th. Just another reminder of the importance of prayer.
  • Caryl and I will be co-teaching a Parenting Class starting Friday October 20th  at 6:30PM at the Fergusons home. The cost of the class will be $25 per couple. The focus of the class is developing a Biblical parenting model. Talk to Amy F or Pastor Joe if you are interested or have questions.
  • I want to say thanks to the Hansen family for all their work on the Operation Christmas Child emphasis. I am so excited to be able to minister to children in another part of the world. I hope that you will participate by filling shoe boxes. You can pick up a box and instructions (some things have changed this year) on Sunday.
  • Parents you do not want to miss the Six-8 Date Night Out. The youth will be providing Child Care on Saturday October 14th from 7pm-11pm at the Ministry Center. Please contact Pastor Zac with any questions.
  • Please pray about the need we have for Sunday School teachers and AWANA helpers. If you are interested in either of these talk to Kendra (KidsZone/Sunday School) or Pastor Berney (AWANA).
  • Please keep praying for someone that can “Sign” in the service. We would like to offer this. We have been unable to locate someone that could help. Please let Pastor Joe know if you have any ideas.
  • I have selected Psalms 1:1-2 for our October MMV (Monthly Memory Verse). “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1–2 ESV It is a reminder of the need to be on our guard. Let me encourage those of you with smart phones or tablets to check out the ScriptureTyper App. (IOS and Android)
  • This week our “No Excuses” study will be focusing on contentment as we look at the account of David and Bathseba. Our study on “Live with No Excuses, Love with No Regrets” is a series to challenge those of us that follow Jesus to live up to our calling. It is so easy to allow our desire for stuff to pull us away from Jesus. One of the great blessings to me from your prayer support is that God is working in my heart each week as I prepare for Sunday. I know that your prayer is blessing me and in turn our congregation. Thanks for praying.
