The Pastor's Perspective
Circle June 4th on your calendar and make every effort to be in worship on that day. June 4th is Double Vision Sunday. I will be casting vision for the future of our church. If you haven't already done so, please pick up your copy of Autopsy of a Deceased Church this Sunday (in lower foyer; one copy per family). Please read this book before June 4th, as it will give us some perspective and prepare us for my message on June 4th.
