Reflections- "Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends." -Proverbs 17:9
THE PASTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
Our Prayer Focus this week is Awana Bible Clubs. Pray for our children who are in Awana, our Awana Director, our teachers and helpers. Speaking of Awana, we need more people who can come, even for just one Sunday, to listen to the children say their memory verses. You don't have to teach, just listen to the children say their memory verses. If you could serve in this way, please speak with Kammy Miraglia, our Awana Director.
We received the following note from the family of Art Booth- "Thank you for your calls, visits and cards while Art was in the hospital and rehab center. Thank you for celebrating his life with us."- Barbara and Amanda Bush
Every Sunday we form our prayer circle to ask God to fill the pews. This past Sunday I encouraged us to each invite someone to church this Sunday. That is how our pews will get filled. Let's be an inviting church! Have a heart for one- as an individual, invite another individual; as a couple, invite another couple; as a family, invite another family to church.
