  • I am reminded each week of the blessing of knowing the Lord. I am reminded of a phrase from Hebrew 12:2 that remind us that Jesus “is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” It is a reminder to me that the Lord is in control and is working out his plan in our midst. It causes me to stop and give thanks for the privilege that I have of knowing the Creator personally!
  • I want to say Thank You to everyone that has given to the special offering for the Hudsons and also to those that will be giving regularly to support their ministry. I am excited to partner with them in the work in Columbia!
  • We have been making great progress on “moving in to our new facility.” We have been busy getting settled in and it is a blessing to see all those that are involved in different ways. This Saturday July 17 at 8:30AM – Noon is the first of two work days. Please bring wheel barrows, shovels and rakes if you have them. We will be focusing on the driveway entrance. Our goal is to install weed barrier and bark. We will also need to move the “Porta Pottie” to the back of the lot. I look forward to seeing many of your there. (We will also be having a work day the following Saturday July 22.)
  • Several people have expressed interest in a Couples Bible Study. The plan is to start in late September. Please let Pastor Joe know if you are interested.
  • We have two Men’s groups that are meeting . Pastor Berney leads a Thursday Evening group at 7:00 pm at the church studying the Minor Prophets. Pastor Joe’s Thursday Men’s group meets at 10AM Thursday mornings in the Admin Building.
  • Six-8 Youth Jr high and Sr High will be meeting together for the new summer series on Prayer. Next activity is Board Game day at the church on 7/18 1-5pm. Please contact Pastor Zac for more information.
  • Our July Monthly Memory Verse is found in 2 Corinthians 5:21. It reminds of that we have been saved to live for Jesus “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV  I strongly encourage you to develop a system for memorizing Scripture. It could be using 3×5 cards or even an app. Let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • This week will be looking at the Biblical paradox of dying to live. The Apostle Paul reminds us that God has chosen to reveal himself through a bunch of “cracked pots.” I appreciate your prayers for me as I prepare and deliver the message this Sunday from 2 Corinthians 4:7-18.
