SUMMER . . . is here! I can still feel a little coolness in the early morning but I’m sure as the summer progresses, it will soon be gone. Regardless of the season, there are still some ministries that continue on. Our Homebound and Bereavement Ministries remain active throughout the year as well as our DeaconCare ministry. All of these have one thing in common: member care. In Acts 20:28, we find this instruction for taking care of those assigned to us: “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.”
Together, with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we can minister to our members in all seasons of life.
SUMMER . . . is also a time for “getting ready for the fall.” New music has already been ordered for Joyful Sound. Our first rehearsal is Tuesday, September 10th. That will also be the first meeting for Young at Heart. MABS (Monday Afternoon Bible Study) will also begin in September. I’m planning to teach a five-week course on dealing with the difficulties of life.
