  • Last week we had our Conditional Use Permit presented to the Hearing Examiner. I want to say thanks to everyone that prayed for this and those that were able to come out in support. Overall everything went well except for one snafu. The City of Port Orchard was not notified about the project and had several items to be addressed that were brought up at the hearing. The Hearing Examiner and all involved agreed to a continuance of 3 weeks to address these items. So, keep praying!
  • Continue to pray for our nation and specifically the Churches and Christians that are ministering to others in these storm hit areas of our country.
  • Ladies the Women’s Fall Ministry Kickoff is this Saturday September 23rd at the Ministry Center. I hope you are able to make it to this special event.
  • There will be several opportunities to get plugged into a new small group that are launching this month. There will be men’s and women’s groups as well as a Parenting Class. Keep your eyes on the bulletin for more information on each of these events.
  • 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).
  • Continue to pray for the Hansen family with the passing of George’s father Steve. You are invited to Steve’s Memorial service on Saturday September 30th 2pm at the Living Hope Ministry Center.
  • 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.
  • Our September MMV is Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”  It is our growing relationship with Jesus that us the right attitude and strength to live for Him each day. Also let me encourage those of you with smart phones or tablets to check out the ScriptureTyper App. (IOS and Android)
  • I am excited about our new sermon series, “No Excuses.” We will be looking at Biblical accounts and passages that challenge us to live with no regrets. I do appreciate your prayers as  I put the finishing touches on this new series that launches next Sunday.
  • We will complete our Gospel 360 series this Sunday as we look at the importance of team ministry in Romans 16. While this chapter focuses on Paul’s closing remarks, there are a number of insights that remind us of the impact of the Gospel upon our relationships with others. Thanks for praying.
