The Pastor's Perspective
The Story study will begin on Sept. 6th. The Story is the continuing story of God and His people. The Story is the Bible in narrative form. In 31 weeks we will go through the entire Bible in a way that helps us understand the Bible like never before. We will be studying The Story in Sunday School classes, the Sunday morning worship service and Children's Church. Copies of The Story will go on sale Aug. 9th; cost is $6.25 per copy.
We are starting a new Young Adults Ministry. A Facebook group has been created- Young Adults Ministry (Lebanon Christian Church). Any young adult can join the group by sending a request to join.
September 20th is National Back To Church Sunday . Will you help get people back to church by volunteering to Pack a Pew? Would you invite 8-10 people to sit in a pew with you? There's only one rule- the people cannot be anyone who currently attends Lebanon. We want to reach out to people in our church and our community who need to get back to church. If you are willing to pack a pew, send me an e-mail and let me know.
I will be on vacation the next two days but look forward to being with you again this Sunday as we look at the 4th installment of The Christian Atheist series- "I Believe In God But I Won't Forgive."
