The Return of our Navajo Mission team! Our team of 12 (aka our 12 Disciples; The Dirty Dozen) put their hands to the dirt doing some hard labor while on their mission trip in Shiprock, New Mexico, and returned safely Wednesday evening. Some of the work they did was to help winterize houses for the elderly and infirmed. As you’d imagine, they’ve come back with a myriad of experiences both shared and individual, special God moments and heartfelt connections with the people they served which added to the richness of their week. Thank you for your prayer cover!
This weekend 39 of our youth and adults will be away at Fort Caswell, Oak Island, NC for SpiritUs; the Youth Beach Retreat put on by our Conference. Please remember them in your prayers.
Pastor Terry posed this thought last week… If you’re wondering what an Acts 2 church looks like, just read the second chapter of Acts. And if you do, you will find that one of the things that characterized the early church was a commitment to pool their resources so there would be no need.
In case you weren’t aware – we began a new tradition of receiving a soup pot offering each time we share in communion. Those proceeds will go to our discretionary fund to assist families in our church experiencing financial hardship, which has already met several needs. Thank you for your generosity and support!
This Sunday Pastor Terry will share Part 2 of his sermon, "What Does Forgiveness Look Like?"
God continues to use our church (You – His body) to bring healing, transformation and love to a broken world. We can’t wait to see what God is going to do in the weeks to come! Keep praying! Keep Looking up!
