There's a viral video that's been all over the internet this past week of a post-game interview with a high school football player named Apollos Hester. Take a look at it here:
In the words of the news anchor, "WOW!" Can you imagine how having a team mate like Apollos would encourage you to keep going even when the game isn't going your way?! This young man has a real future in some area of communications! In fact, his inspirational interview has already been turned into a song. Take a listen:
The story of Joseph that we're reading in chapter 3 of The Story (Genesis 37-50) is a perfect example of someone like Apollos who kept going "regardless of the scoreboard"!
How do you suppose Joseph was able to do that? Well, that's what we're going to be talking about this Sunday, September 28th. I hope you'll be able to join us!
A couple of announcements:
The Women's Fall Soup Dinner is coming up on Friday, October 17th. A sign-up sheet is in the Fellowship Hall so that the team can plan for numbers, childcare, and if you will be bringing soup or bread to share.
Trunk 'R' Treat will once again take place in our church parking lot on Halloween evening. Mandy would love to have someone help her with the planning of this wonderful outreach to our community. Please let her know if you are willing to do so. Sign-ups for participation will soon be taking place, so plan now to participate with your own decorated trunk!
