THRIVE PENINSULA- we raised $733.00 ( and our total is climbing) with the spare change Gatorade bottle fundraiser. 24 bottles were turned in. This is awesome. Lebanon is the first church to participate in this fundraiser. The amount of money we raised will pay someone's rent; it could pay a few utility bills for some families. THANKS to everyone who participated. You have made a difference.
Reflections- "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption." -Ephesians 4:30
The Pastor's Perspective
"Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape". That is a saying I have shared from time to time. We have to remain adaptable, especially if God is leading us differently than we might have anticipated.
I am going to be flexible and adapt my preaching schedule by delaying my Trusting God sermon series by one week. I will be bringing a different message this Sunday, based on what I believe was a Spirit-initiated discussion at our board meeting last night.
What's the sermon? You'll have to be here this Sunday to hear it. For now just PRAY about it.
