Welcome Fall!

Welcome Fall!

    IN JUST A FEW DAYS we will turn the calendar page and it will be October. Personally, I love October! Fall has become my favorite time of the year. I like the cooler weather, but that’s not the main reason I like the fall. October is a great month for the church! There are many opportunities to impact the lives of people for Jesus.

    THE RECONNECT TO CONNECTION GROUPS EMPHASIS will be in full swing. What we began in September with the Preschool Spotlight will conclude in October with the Senior Adult Spotlight. This is a great opportunity for every age division to encourage people to get reconnected to a Connection Group.

    THE ANNUAL STEWARDSHIP EMPHASIS will also be in full swing. The theme of this year’s emphasis will be “Generosity: Expressing Biblical Discipleship”. There will be an opportunity to learn what the Bible says about expressing generosity by taking a look at the teachings of Jesus. The emphasis will climax with Tithing Commitment Day on October 29 and Prove the Tithe Day on November 5.

    JUDGEMENT HOUSE will take place on October 23-27. This is a special evangelistic event that God has used to save the lost and stir the saved. It is a Christian alternative to a Haunted House that depicts life, death, judgement, and eternity. JH is a churchwide event! It takes people of all ages to make it happen. If you plan to get involved, now is the time.

    THE ANNUAL FALL FESTIVAL will close out the month. The Fall Festival is a Christian alternative to Halloween. There will be candy, hot dogs, games, rides, music, and a good time for people of all ages. This is also a churchwide event! We especially need student and adult Connection Groups who will work this wonderful event. Again, now is the time to find a place to serve!
