Wow! What a month September is going to be! Let me just bullet point the things that will be coming up this month:
* We begin with our big Labor Day potluck at Konarcik Park...a wonderful afternoon of fellowship and food for the whole family!
* Then, on the 13th, we move to our new simultaneous services: traditional service in the sanctuary and contemporary service at the Beacon, both happening at 10:00.
* That evening, we have a special called family meeting to hear and vote on the deacons’ recommendation that we call Andi Hirsch to serve as our Director of Ministry to Preschool/Children and Families
*The following Sunday, September 20, is our Back to Church Sunday. I am asking God to use us as we invite our friends and family, with a prayerful goal of 300 people in worship in the two services
¨ And then, on the 27th, we have the Link Family Singers coming to lead us in the evening service with a concert of folk and gospel Christian music!
* And what’s more, we begin a new Bible study series on Wednesdays, our new handbell choir begins rehearsing, we start a new online book club, and our children’s and student ministries kick off the new school year on Wednesday nights!
WHEW! It’s going to be a great kick-off to a wonderful year of worshiping, connecting, growing, and reaching!
I want to extend a huge word of thanks to Bruce Conley and Brian McKelvey and the entire summer worship team for the amazing way that they led us in combined worship this summer. I can hardly wait for next year!
