Coffee With the Pastor
My first visit to Michigan was during the Fall and I have loved the state every since. Having taken color tours around here and in the UP has endeared this state and its beauty even more. There is something about the change in season that seems to add a new zest to life, especially after the hot summer we have had.
As usual October will be a busy month. Kid’s Club has started again and continues to grow. A concern there is over the long-term life of the program. There is always a need for fresh faces in dealing with children and as the program continues that need is going to increase. Let me encourage you to make this an object of your prayers. Jesus said, “the fields are white unto harvest, pray for laborers that the harvest might be gathered”. With an increasing secular society with its philosophy of no ultimate truths the need for Biblical teaching is greater than it has ever been and needs you in prayer and action.
We will have our usual Trunk or Treat this year on the 31st. Let me encourage you to be a part of this, as it is an opportunity to meet the community and minister to children as well as provide a safe environment to them.
Thanks again for your faithfulness over the years I trust God will continue to bless you and our church body as it goes forward. Hope to see you Sunday.
Barb and I would like to invite you to a special Fall Supper on October 24th. She and I will prepare the meal in appreciation for all the church has meant to us. It will be a very traditional gathering and would be even sweeter if you were present. There will be a signup sheet out soon or you can call the office. I hope you will be a part of this along with your family.
