|Church Requel Picnic, July 28, 2012|
My, Church Requel, how you've grown! This is the photo from our picnic this past Saturday. I LOVE this picture! Diana posted a link to over a hundred photos up on our Facebook page. For those who don't have Facebook we hope to get the photos posted on our website soon.
Hi everyone. This is Pastor Mark with your weekly "What's Happening" blog post. I hope this has been a good week for you. The week has been a whirlwind for me. I spent the first couple of days with my grandson Grayden. Then, on Wednesday, Mary Kay and I celebrated my sister Kimberly's 49th birthday at a Villa in Gervasi Vineyard in Canton, Ohio. The photo below right is another favorite of my dad, brother, sister and me taken at dinner Wednesday night.

Playing With Seduction. The whirlwind continues with another big weekend at Church Requel Sunday night. Brandi Walker will be back leading our worship and praise songs. (Don't you just love it when she leads us?) Our teaching theme will focus on the story of Samson and Delilah. We will meet 4 different personalities of Sin. The conclusion of the evening will feature a music video of the song, "Beautiful Things" by Gungor. Of all the videos we've ever shown at CR, I think this one is my all time favorite! Believe me when I tell you that you do not want to miss this Sunday. Want a head start? Here is the link to the YouVersion sermon notes.
Children's Readers Theater on August 26th. Our elementary kiddos will be reading our Scripture reading on the story of David and Goliath the last Sunday in August. What is a Reader's Theater you ask? Each child will read one verse at a time in as dramatic a form as possible. We anticipate that each child will have 2 to 4 verses depending on how many sign up. We'll give out the verse assignments by August 12th so your children will have plenty of time to practice. Please let me know if your child wants to participate. Should be way cool!
New Worship Team Forming. Brandi Walker has asked for others to join her monthly worship leadership. Brandi has told me she loves leading, but knows there are others who can sing or play a musical instrument. If you would be interested in being a part of this new team, talk to Brandi or Pastor Steve. Thanks Brandi!
I hope you have a GREAT weekend. And I hope you can finish your weekend with your Church Requel family Sunday night. It's always a party at CR when we celebrate Christ's grace and love! With great affection, Pastor Mark
