What a beautiful morning! What a beautiful start to a fantastic weekend! It's hard to believe that this is the middle of July already. Truly, it seems like just yesterday when Brandi and I were planning the summer activities. The July pool party seemed like such a long ways away... and now we're here! Wow!
POOL PARTY - Saturday, 6 - 8pm.
This event if free!! You are welcome to bring a drink and snack with you, or you can buy items from the concession stand. There are plenty of chairs all around the pool so all you need is a towel!
Make sure you plan to come swimming and have some fun together at Shelly Acres from 6pm-8pm.
Sunday - Miracles and The Church. We will teach our 8th sermon from the book of Acts. Our pace will change pretty significantly. Our first 7 talks covered two chapters. This talk will cover all of chapter 3 and the first four verses of chapter 4! You might want to read ahead. You can get a head start with the sermon notes here.
Our worship singing will be lead by Brandi, Brian and Bessica. They enjoyed a terrific rehearsal last night. You'll love the way Brandi has arranged our worship experience this Sunday with the music arranged throughout the entire morning. (Speaking of which, doesn't Brandi just do a wonderful job EVERY week?) I love the picture above left with Zar sticking so close to Mom. He was just a darling last night!
Also special this Sunday will be the fact that the newly wed Basermans will be leading too. Loni will read our Scripture reading. Mark will guide us into our communion time. Jonathan, Dave and Grayden will be working the tech booth. Sara and Chris will be prepping our communion tables. Cindy, Karen and Amanda will be teaching our children (this will be Amanda's first time in the Nursery - make sure you thank her and congratulate her for this step up in service!) Roger and Juanita will greet you as you come in. Chris will lead our counting team. May I just once again tell you all how much I appreciate your dedication to our church family!
- the cost is $20 per person (as long as we have a group of 12 or more,) and children 10 and under are free
- we are going to meet at 10am at Mohican Adventures for the canoe trip which is 7 miles long and takes about 2 hours
- when we are finished canoeing we can all grab some lunch together at a restaurant in that area
Sounds like a great time, right?!?! Don't you just love these fun events that we do together here at Church Requel throughout the summer?
Love you all much! Hope to see you Saturday at 6pm and then again Sunday morning at 11am! - Pastor Mark
