  • I know that many of us are desiring to start holding services again. Let me encourage you to be patient. Right now it seems that the Lord has closed several doors. The use of the school is not yet a possibility. There are also those that are desiring to do an outdoor service. We are open to that suggestion possibly on a limited basis, like a monthly potluck picnic service onsite. Our best course of action, for a number of reasons, is to wait until we have our Occupancy Permit for the office building. We are currently waiting for engineered plans so that we can build the Ramp and landing area.
  • We just signed off on the final cost for the Worship building. We are now waiting on the latest (and hopefully last) changes to the plans for our review. The next step will involve a few other details related to progress payments, permits and eventually construction. Please keep praying!
  • For those that may not yet know, we have canceled CLEAT Soccer Camp. Please put July 19-23, 2021 on your calendars for next year’s camp.
  • I have really enjoyed our Wednesday Evening Bible Study 7pm on ZOOM (Zoom Link) I have been very happy with the way that is going. Yes, it would be better if we met in person, but the video chat format is working very well. If you are interested in digging a little deeper into the Sunday message, I encourage you to join us.
  • Our June memory verse is from Luke 14:11. “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”” Luke 14:11 ESV If you struggle with memorizing or even consistency, let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • I have to confess that I was struggling at first preaching through 1 Kings this year in our Celebrate Summer Series, “Lessons for the Journey.” Preaching through narrative sections of the Bible is challenging for me. I find it easy to get buried in all the details. I have become excited however from my studies for what the Lord is going to do in our lives and our congregation over these next couple months. The situation in Kings has a lot of similarities with our culture today. There are many lessons that we can learn from the few good and many bad kings. I do covet your prayers as I prepare For each Sunday. I know that the Lord is opening my heart to these lessons each week because of your prayers. Thank You
