REFLECTIONS- "I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth." - Psalm 121:1-2
THE PASTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
Today we remember those who lost their lives on 9/11 18 years ago. Say a prayer for the families who lost loved ones on that horrific day. Ask the Lord to comfort and strengthen them as the anniversary has to be extremely difficult for them.
Three years ago we revised and ramped up our Children's Ministry. At the time we had 7-8 children and teens registered. Today we have over 30 children and teens! We have added Youth Group for our teens during the Sunday morning worship service. There will be a meeting after worship on September 29th for all parents of teens and anyone else who would like to help with our youth ministry. Pizza will be served for lunch.
Sunday is Back To Church Sunday. It is not too late to invite someone to join you at church. I will begin a new four-part series called Together. We will learn how we can experience God's blessings together in the church and how, together, we can do God's work in our world.
