A Word from Mike…
Tell me the stories…
Raise your hand if you would like to hear about someone besides Paul next Sunday!
I want to thank everyone for joining in this experimental sermon approach where, with Bibles in hand, we have covered a large number of scriptures each week. I have found the approach both challenging and fulfilling. The goal was to help the congregation have a better understanding of each separate journey Paul made and his long imprisonment afterwards. Several of you were kind enough to share that you benefitted from the “bird’s eye view” of each journey as well as the chance to flip through the pages of your Bible!
I LOVE the Bible. The phrase sounds so simple and “preacher-esque.” Clergy are supposed to say such things, but my passion to understand scripture continues to grow. One blessing of a profession in ministry is the time allowed to read scripture and to study Biblical
resources. Many of you have busy schedules. Making time to sit and enjoy a meal can be difficult enough, without finding additional free time to browse scripture. Still, I
encourage you to find time to read your Bibles. For some of you it may already be a daily practice, for others reading time may be less structured. Even being intentional about attending a Sundayschool class can be a step in the right direction. Regardless of your
situation, I am thankful that we are able to take those steps together.
Thanks for sharing the journey,
On Wednesday evening, October 5th, the youth will be doing a Bible study based on an overview of one of the letters of Paul, Ephesians. Dinner is at 6 p.m. and provided by Roxanne Austin. Parents and youth, please try to be prompt so we can start ourstudy time at 6:30 p.m. Sponsor for the study will be Tammy Cook.
THERE IS A CHANGE FOR THIS SUNDAY, October 9th. Due to some scheduling complications our youth will be participating in CROP Walk this Sunday instead of going to Frontier City. We will be meeting at the Garden Pavilion, by the tennis courts, inRegional Park. Regional Park is at the intersection of Reno/Douglas and the pavilion is on the Douglas side. The walk will be approximately 3 miles and there will be water bottles at the half way mark. Parents can drop off their youth, but they are also invited to participate. Youth are asked to be at the park just before 2 p.m.
There will be no youth meetings at the church Sundayevening.
If you are interested in helping with the Wednesday
night Youth meal, please contact Beverly Rubino
at 426-2685 for details. Thank you!
