President’s Post/Church Council News;
Here we are in the heat of the summer and the hottest month of the year. The A/C for the sanctuary is in just in time and working like a champ. I would like to say thank you to all who donated and made this purchase/installation possible. Also, I would like to tip my hat to everyone that has been pitching in and getting all the projects done this spring. The parking lot is looking good. Maybe the stripping could get done near the end of the summer. There are also some plans to beautify the island in front of the church. That will also have to wait until late summer.
The Fourth of July parade is next week, and it sounds like everything is coming together quite well. Should be a great time. For those that have never been in a parade and would like to participate, I urge you to contact Sylvia Dankers ASAP. A special thank you to the Craig family for the use of the trailer.
The Lord has blessed us with quite a few visitors to the church recently. Please reach out with an open hand and greet them as if they were guest in your very own home.
In July I would like to have you think of the word grace. Literally meditate on the meaning and how the Lord’s grace has formed your life and continues to change you as a person. Let’s look at Paul, who wrote 28% of the total words of the New Testament, and 13 of the 27 books of the same. Paul was overwhelmed with grace and the concept of what that meant in his life. He is responsible for 73% of all the times that the word grace showed up in the New Testament. You could say he was the poster child for grace. We are saved by Grace in Jesus Christ, given to us by the Father.
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to was not without effect” 1 Corinthians 15:10. Paul was both made and changed in God’s grace. So are we! Again, I ask for you to think of who you are and how did grace mold you to who you are.
WE PRAY: Heavenly Father, please help us to always keep our lives in focus, that we may guide others to your Love, that they may know the meaning of your Grace. Give our voices meaning to the ears of those in need. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
In our Lord’s Name, DeAl Dankers
