Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Morning Worship - This weekend Pastor Daryl kicks off our new worship series entitled "Be Still" with a look at Psalm 46: 1-7, 10-11. If you have a nametag, we want to encourage you to wear it to help CJ and his family put names and faces together!

Invite a friend to come with you this weekend. We'll be worshipping at 8am, 9:30am, and 11am. All are invited and all are welcome.

2. Welcoming the Hill Family - There will be a church-wide welcome celebration for the Hill Family on Sunday July 21st after worship. You can get your dessert FIRST that day, with a fun ice cream social in the Family Life Center! If you haven't seen it yet, here's the introduction video the family made that we showed in worship a few weekends ago.

3. Property Purchase Update - Our Leadership Council chair, Dave Withers, gave an important update in worship at the end of June. Our closing date for the "yellow" house on Fountain Street is set for July 16th. In the process, we have refinanced our current church building debt with the United Methodist Foundation out of Lakeland for a lower percentage rate! But no interest is better than low interest as Dave said! So, if you'd like to make a special gift towards the debt, just mark it "Building Fund Principal" and you'll help save the church some interest. Thank you!

4. Prayer Concerns
  • For all of our youth and children who will be attending church camp at Warren Willis next week from Monday through Saturday. 
  • For Matt and Sarah Bruzzi, their Life at the Intersection Ministry in the 9th Ward, and all the residents of New Orleans who live near the levees - some parts of New Orleans are already under an evacuation order because of high water and the approaching storm Barry. If you are interested in hosting a family known to the Bruzzis that is evacuating, please contact the church office. 

Have a great weekend and we know you will enjoy worship this Sunday!
