The Pastor's Perspective
I am really encouraged and excited by our response to the I Am A Church Member book that will be a complement to the sermon series that starts this coming Sunday. So far we have handed out 76 copies of the book. We will have more available this Sunday.
I understand that several have requested more than 1 copy of the book. And we will make additional copies available on a first-come basis after every family has a copy. Once we pass out copies this Sunday to any family that doesn't have a copy, the remainder will be available, at 1 additional copy per family, until our supply is gone. You can also go to Lifeway Christian Bookstore and buy a single copy for $7.99.
I Am A Church Member takes a Biblical look at what it really means to be a church member. It emphasizes our need to take our church membership seriously, to be responsible and to be involved in the church. This series will wrap up by helping us see that church membership is something to celebrate.
Please read chapter 1 in preparation for this Sunday's message- "I will be a Functioning Church Member."
I am excited to share this series with you and see how it blesses our church!
