Pastor’s Note

Dale SorgenPastor's Notes

Good morning and Welcome to Church! Next Sunday morning is Father’s Day and we begin our 12-week Summer Church Schedule. This is a new tradition that we started last year and it was received so well that we decided to continue it again this summer.

The main change that we make during our Summer Church Schedule is that we do not have our Sunday morning discipleship classes from 9:15 – 10:15.  Instead, we are having a morning breakfast/fellowship time at 9:45 that will be hosted each week by different members/families of our church staff. This is a fun way that we, your church staff, can serve you, give you an opportunity to come and meet us, and more importantly, meet and hangout with the people you go to church with. Church will still be at 10:30, so we invite you to come each week a little early, hangout in the fellowship hall, have a little breakfast, and enjoy some time visiting before we all go into church to worship together.

The last day of our 12-week Summer Church Schedule will be Sunday, September 3, which is Labor Day weekend.  And then we will kick-off our Fall Church Schedule on the next Sunday, September 10, when we will be back with our 1st Trimester of Classes for all ages and groups.

We will have A LOT of activities going on this summer which will include our ongoing ministries of all different kinds, and also our special summer events like VBS.  Of course, during this summer, we will also be doing a lot of work preparing for our Fall Schedule.  We have a lot of planning to do for next year’s Awana, and we also have a lot of planning to do for our Discipleship Classes. Let me encourage you now, to please let us know if you feel the Lord is leading you to teach or lead some kind of class this next year. We are beginning to work now on putting together our full class schedule for all of next year so that we can plan well for all areas of our ministry needs.

This summer is going to be fun. Ready? Set. Go (into all the world and make disciples)!

 

All for Jesus,

Pastor Dale
