Three... Two... One... Lift-Off!
The countdown to a rocket launch takes days, but excitement builds as the clock counts down to the final few seconds.
It's not too late to turn in your commitment to our "Beautiful Thing" campaign. Our Commitment Sunday on May 15 was a great success, but we're still collecting offerings and pledge cards. You can drop by the church office between 8:30am-4:30pm through Thursday, or contact our Financial Secretary, Betty Morgan, by phone (345-3771) or email.
Write me with your comments or stories about how God has spoken to you during this campaign. I'll read as many as I can this Sunday, May 22. Is there some new conviction you've reached? Did a devotional grab your heart? Did a song or a sermon touch you in a special way? How did God speak to you as you prayed about your "Beautiful Thing" offering? Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need your help with a very special bulletin insert this Sunday. We're compiling a list of all who helped with any part of this campaign -- no matter whether their role was large or small. Please turn in the names of everyone you feel should be included in that bulletin insert. We'll have to go to print by noon on Thursday, so hurry!
When a space shuttle is launched more energy is spent the first few minutes of lift-off than is used over the next several days to travel half a million miles. That's true in our renovation efforts, too. In a way, all this energy and prayer and focus
the last six weeks was just to achieve lift-off. While we still have a lot of work ahead of us, though, it will be a lot more successful because of how hard we all worked these last six weeks. A grateful pastor says, "Thank you!"
