How good are you at keeping a secret? I'm talking about really good news that others would love to know about - the kind of information that will make them outrageously happy. Kristen Wiig played an overly-excited character named Aunt Sue in a Saturday Night Live skit a few years ago. Click on the picture below to watch her struggle to contain herself.
As wonderful as the news of a surprise party may be, you and I have the best news ever: God loves everyone and has made a way for people to be forgiven; given a brand new, eternal life; and be filled with real purpose and hope! Why would we ever hesitate to tell others that kind of good news?!
And yet, we too often find ourselves avoiding telling anyone...
This Sunday, June 1st, we're going to decide to TELL! And it will start with the easiest audience around: your church family. A large part of the service will feature open microphones and an invitation to tell a brief story from your life - how the decisions you made allowed God to write a wonderful chapter in your life. Begin now to pray and consider what story from your life you will share with the rest of us in order to praise the Lord and all that he has done. We will conclude the morning with the celebration of the Lord's Supper which points us to the greatest story ever told! I hope to see you there!
Family Dinner & A Movie!
Saturday, June 7th 4-7:30 pm
Everyone is invited to a delightful spaghetti dinner, Disney movie and fun discussion. Consider inviting a neighbor family and join us even if you don't have young children. This is a wonderful chance to interact with the children in our congregation and build relationships across the generations.
Look for sign-ups in the church Fellowship Hall or contact Mandy Schmekel for more information.
On June 8th we'll be celebrating the baptisms of a number of people within our church family as a part of the worship. I want to open this up to anyone else who would also like to be baptized on that day. If you're interested in talking about this, please let me know.
Vacation Bible School is coming July 14-18
You can register your child and sign up to volunteer at the display in the Fellowship Hall or contact Mandy Schmekel.
