Hope you are having a good week! Here are something to keep in mind over the next several days:
Sunday is a B U S Y day! Sunday morning begins with a time of prayer at 8:30 in the Welcome Center. I know Sundays can be hectic and we are often pulled in many directions, but if you are able, come by and spend some time in prayer prior to worship. Spending time with God will certainly prepare your heart for worship! This Sunday is Children’s Day. Our kids will be active participants in worship! Meg would appreciate all the kids being here by 9:15. Please be in touch with Meg if you have any questions. Pastor Kevin will be sharing the word of God, our choir will be singing, kid friendly music …and the all-church picnic follows worship at 11:30. Pastor Kevin will be manning the grill and he is looking for an able-bodied assistant to help with that. We will also need a “runner” to bring hot food into the hungry folks waiting in Veno Hall 🙂 If you are willing to help out, please give the office a call or let Pastor know on Sunday morning.
On Sunday we will also be recognizing our 2 high school graduates. Congratulations to Robbie Bayha and Brett Chadwick! Both of these young guys graduated this past week. Robbie attended Sharon High School and Brett has been homeschooled. Well done! Robbie will be attending U MASS Amherst in September. If you read the Boston Globe or have access to it, there was a great article on Brett’s homeschool graduation. Angela has also shared the link on her FB page. Check it out!
We received another update from Michelle. Are you keeping her in your prayers? Pick up the update from the table in the narthex.
If anyone has use for a NEW Apple keyboard, please speak to Pastor Kevin. He has one that needs a good home 🙂
Monday evening at 7:00 at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Norfolk is another opportunity to learn more about the growing problem of human trafficking and exploitation. This evening will specifically address how churches can respond to this problem and be a safe place to someone in need. Please speak to Donna Wood if you have any questions or are interested in attending. Details on the bulletin board near the Welcome Center.
The Administrative Team will meet on Tuesday evening at 7:00 at my home in Sharon.
Mark your calendars: Vacation Bible Club will be taking place over 3 Thursday nights: July 14, 21 & 28 from 6:30-8pm for ages 5-10. Kids 3-4 can come with a parent or “big buddy” and kids ages 11 and up can come as a “big buddy” or activity helper. The theme is OASIS: Finding a new start in God’s refreshing love!
