Dear Church Family,
We have had a great couple of weeks! VBS was another terrific opportunity to share the gospel with scores of kids, teens, and adults. It was so great seeing the Church Body come together to help, encourage, and work side-by-side with each other fulfilling our commission to Love God and Love Others.
Our Sunday VBS Celebration at the Toledo Community Park was a rare and wonderful opportunity to come together as one group and worship Jesus. The weather was great, the food was great, even the bouncy house was great (so I hear 😊 )! But, my favorite part was us getting a chance to connect with each other in that place. We have had some wonderful times of fellowship and created many wonderful memories there.
I wonder, what other “places” do you have in your life? We’re fond of saying, “Come on over to my place…” but have you ever really thought about where your place is? Is it just where you live, work, or worship? And why has God given you these places? How does He want you to enjoy and share these places with others?
This week, we’ll be continuing our series “Serve It Up” by talking about how to Serve in Place. I hope you’ll come to our place and join us for a great Sunday of worship, sharing, and maybe an embarrassing story about the Youth Pastor!
Pray that God would open our hearts and minds to His truth and that we will clearly understand how He wants us to apply that truth to our lives.
I love you all! See you Sunday…
