Well, I’m pumped…it’s starting to cool down and the leaves are starting to change! It may not do it for you, but for me that really jazzes me! Our annual meeting went very well last Sunday evening. Thank you to all of our members who came and helped us get our business done and ready for the year. There was a great spirit in the meeting and we have our new budget and officers for the year. So, now that we have gotten that all done early, we can focus on the special meetings this next with the Pettit evangelistic team.
Many of our church family know this team well, but we also have many new members since their last visit with us four years ago. This will be a new thing for many of them. Our “plan” is to have Steve preach to us as a church on Sunday morning and evening, as well as Monday through Wednesday nights. I know your lives are full, but this would be great time to give the preparing of your heart for evangelism a place of priority in your schedule. Then we’ll focus on special outreach events on Wednesday night for the teens, Thursday night for the ladies, Saturday afternoon for the men, and then Sunday morning worship and Sunday afternoon concert/picnic in the park for families, for everybody.
Sharing the gospel is something that is and should be going on all the time within the context of our day to day lives. Special meetings are designed to give us a time of renewed focus…sort of like expressing love to your husband/wife daily, but investing special time and effort in your relationship at a couple’s retreat or an anniversary get-away. So don’t miss this opportunity to focus on the hearts of your friends, neighbors, and co-workers in a specific and tangible way. Please pray specifically for your friends and neighbors and for all of the events of next week. Thanks!
P. Tim I
