We all see 2019 as a wonderful year of opportunities ahead for Community. Staff and our leadership are working on all kinds of exciting things that will be coming in the days ahead. I shared with staff that in my area of working with committees, it has been exciting to see so many new faces in meetings thus far this year and to hear the interesting perspectives and ideas that these folks bring. Other things that were shared around the table included planning for collaborative ministry between the musicians in our Contemporary and Traditional worship ministries, our Community Christian School exploring VPK for the fall, and our scouting program continues to expand - we included girls in Cub Scouts last year which has gone well and we will be one of the first chartering organizations in Lake and Sumter counties to charter a troop for girls in the new Scouts BSA program. Exciting stuff!
Keep our ministries as well as our leadership and staff in your prayers, that we may always be faithful to listen to the voice of God in leading and directing our church.
Winterfest is almost upon as well - this Saturday! It may be the 14th annual event, but there are some new vendors and we have moved the locations around for some things on the property. The Winterfest Committee has been working hard for months and they've done plenty of new advertising as well to get the word out about this wonderful event - our annual gift to our community. We look forward to seeing you there!
