Thoughts from the weekend:
I'm not quite sure how many volunteers we have on a typical Sunday morning to facilitate all of the ministries of our church - but there are many.
And to all of you who help out - a huge thank you!
We are very appreciative of your time and help.
I participated in a very productive meeting with Bobbie Dirks (our new head of our greeters and welcome booth ministry) and Tom Kirchner and Jon Gerstenkorn!
I really appreciate their burden and desire to see that everyone is welcomed to our church on a Sunday morning.
Upward Basketball. Still time to sign up!
I know that you will agree with me that worship was powerful, anointed and encouraging yesterday.
I especially enjoyed to flute solo.
Thought for today: Just about the time you are ready to give up - that is the time God is ready to step in and His thing.
Many thanks to the young men in our youth group who stood and cheered as I wore turquoise tennis shoes and jeans in their honor!
I must say that wearing jeans was very, very comfortable.
We are building moment as to the theme for our church family in 2015. More to come.
What I didn't get to yesterday (in my teaching):
In spite of my circumstances:
I can be joyful because God is with me.
I can be joyful because God has a plan for me.
I can rejoice because God will help me.
I am to focus on God's power rather than my problems. Psalms 62:8: Trust in God at all times; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge."
Paul writes in Philippians 4:13, "For I can do everything with the help of Christ who give me the strength I need."
Do you need strength today? Draw from God's power.
Love you all.....
