  • I want to say Thanks to Pastor Mark Suko for his ministry to our congregation this past Sunday. It was a blessing to have him and his wife, Nancy, with us once again. I am reminded of the importance of investing in others. They have been a model of this for me and Caryl!
  • We are continuing to promote the sending of items for the the College ministry of Mary Amesbury. Let me encourage you to participate in this special project by sending a care package with items to be given away at her upcoming student events. Please refer to the bulletin insert for specifics!
  • Looking ahead, be sure to put September 12 on your calendar. We will be celebrating 20 years of the Lord’s faithfulness to our church. We are busy working through plans for this special day. Be sure to put it on your calendar as we launch the 2021-2022 year of ministry as well!
  • It is exciting to see our different ministries gearing up for this fall. Our Ladies Ministry will also be kicking off on Saturday September 25. Ladies, let me encourage you to put this event on your calendar as we wrap us Summer and move into Fall.
  • We are looking for an individual to update our “Prayer List” spreadsheet that we distribute each week. We are in need someone to verify and update our government officials on the list. If you could help us with this please reach out to Nina or Pastor Joe.  
  • I want to thank those that have indicated a desire to host and join a couples Bible study this fall. Let me encourage couples that are not currently in a study to join this new group starting in 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 7:00 pm at the church studying the Minor Prophets. Pastor Joe’s Thursday Morning Men’s group meets at 10AM Thursday mornings in the Admin Building.
  • Pastor Zac has some great Six8 Youth Ministry events happening this summer. The Jr & Sr Groups are meeting together for the events. Please check the bulletin for the summer schedule or contact Pastor Zac.
  • Our August Monthly Memory verse will be 2 Corinthians 9:6. Paul reminds us that our investment for Jesus will produce a harvest. “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6 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 I will be focusing on 2 Corinthians 9. It is reminder of our God given opportunity to let him work though us through our giving. Authentic Ministry only begins when we sow ministry seeds of faith through our generosity. I do appreciate your prayers as I prepare for our study this coming Sunday.
