A Word from Mike…
2 Timothy 1.5 5I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you.
Being in ministry, I have been provided many precious memories and treasures from relationships with church members. While I have been blessed with a wonderful mother, apparently God felt like I was the type who needed SEVERAL wonderful mothers! God supplies our needs and does so in abundance!
Those who have been a motherly influence for me have taught me several lessons along the way. Yes, the presence of food is always a wonderful thought, but there is something equally wonderful. The numerous hugs after church and in the hallways, the questions of how my mom and dad are doing, the helpful advice and feedback show a sense of sincere connection and care. One of the great values of our Jewish background is the importance of hospitality. Hopefully our Christian generations follow that hospitality today.
Hugs, cards, thank you notes, a warm smile, a playful joke, kind words and simple presence go so far in being the glue that builds our congregational foundation. We have the opportunity to share that with others, sincerely, as a people who live out of the grace and the goodness of God. I pray that type of faith continues to dwell in all of the generations in our congregation, that we might be true reflections of our loving God.
Thanks for sharing the journey – Mike
I pray that your family had a pleasant and meaningful Mother’s Day holiday. It sure was special to have a great day of worship last Sunday where we
dedicated two beautiful babies and celebrated the blessing of the women in our midst. It is such a blessing to be among people who love so well. I
continue to give thanks for the opportunity to do ministry alongside you.
We are now one month away from Vacation Bible School and I hope that you have made plans to bring kids to participate in what will be an incredibly amazing and God-filled week here at First Christian Church. Our theme for this year is, “Oh The Places God Goes” and I am so excited to see what God does through this week. As a reminder, Vacation Bible School will take place here at FCC on June 6-10 from 9:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m..
Our CYF and Chi Rho youth will meet this Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. to continue working on Youth Sunday.
Grace and Peace,
