It seems like only yesterday…
It seems like . . . only yesterday that summer was just beginning and now we’re talking about summer being over and the beginning of fall. Someone mentioned an age-old phrase to me the other day, “When you’re having fun, my, how time flies!” As I was thinking about this it occurred to me that whether you’re having fun or not, time still flies! I guess the more important consideration we need to make is this: what are we doing with the time? With that in mind, let me mention a few things that are going to be taking place very soon.
Tuesday, September 10 is a BIG day for senior adults. At 9:30 AM that morning, Joyful Sound will begin. We have new folders and new music. I’m so excited about what the Lord will do in and through this choir this year. We’re always looking for new members.
They will meet every Tuesday morning – 9:30-10:30 in the choir room.
Also part of this BIG morning will be the first meeting for Young At Heart. It will begin at 10:45 AM in the Family Life Center with a time of fellowship, followed by our program and 11:00 and a wonderful lunch at 11:45. Young at Heart is an opportunity for all our senior adults to get together. Our regular meeting time is the second Tuesday of the month.
MABS (Monday Afternoon Bible Study) will be back in September. We will begin a five-week study on Monday, September 16. “God’s Blueprint for Overcoming Obstacles” will be the theme for this study. We will deal with personal obstacles with which we all must deal such as . . . fear, discouragement, loneliness, worry, and many others. As always, we will meet in Rm114 from 1:30-2:30.
SOMETHING . . . you don’t want to miss! Our Holiday Banquet for Young at Heart will be Tuesday night, November 26th. It’s one of the two times we will meet in the evening. We are planning something very special for this November. Nathan Burggraff, who blessed us with his playing earlier this year, will be our guest again. But, rather than just playing “for” us, he will also be playing “with” us. We are planning a “Hymn Festival” based on “thankfulness” – for who God is, for what He has done, and for our response to God’s goodness. It’s going to be a wonderful night of thanksgiving and praise. Please put down this date – Tuesday night, November 26th.
