We are wrapping up our series on Prayer, as we reflect on a bold prayer: Thy will be done. Each of us wrestles with the question, "What is God calling me to do?" Praying: Thy will be done, invites a response from God. How can we discern God's response?
Please be in prayer for people who do not have a church home. How is God leading us to reach out to them? I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
New Worship Service to begin:
On September 4th we are introducing a new worship service to our Sunday morning line-up. The new service will at 10:00am and will be a modern service, which will complement our two traditional services.
Beginning, September 4th our Sunday morning schedule will be
8:30am - Traditional worship service (note the earlier time)
10:00am - Modern worship service
11:15am - Traditional worship service
Sunday school for children and youth will continue at 10:00am. Adult small groups may also meet at 10:00am, though some may choose to meet at another time on Sunday morning.
Why are we doing this?
We are doing this as way to reach out to our neighbors. The main demographic of our neighbors within a 2-mile radius of the church is composed of 3 segments - Flourishing families (Generational Soup), Booming with Confidence (Silver Sophisticates), and Promising Families (Fast Track Couples). These are described as affluent couples and multi-generational families living a wide range of life styles in the suburbs. Because of the generational differences, we believe that it would be helpful to offer diversity in worship in order to meet the worship needs of people who may be looking for something different than traditional worship.
To answer your questions or to hear your thoughts, I invite you to a "listening post" this Sunday, July 17th , at 10:00am in the Gathering Room. I am also available at Panera's on Liberia on Tuesday, July 19th, from 12:30pm to 3:00pm. Come join me.
