A Church Never Gave Me Anything Before

This morning an elderly second time visitor was going through the receiving line after service. He held up a Whitey’s gift card we sent him this past week. He said, “Is this for me?” I said, “Absolutely. Enjoy.” Then he said, “I’ve never had a church give me anything before.”

While I was delighted that he was delighted; I too was sad. How sad it is that churches aren’t more known for their giving than receiving. Yes, I know that that is not totally accurate — because churches do give a lot and do a lot of good in the world. But it is a good reminder for us always to “put our best foot forward” when it comes to our guests. Some churches call that the “wow” factor. Jesus was an example of that. When people met him or were in his presence they were “wowed!” And since we are to be Christ-like may we too “wow” guests and each other from time to time. Faith LCMC is making a difference. May this continue so that we all can experience the “outrageous joy of Jesus.”

Staff Retreat

 Everything is good!

Everything is good!

Recently, the staff had a 24 hour retreat offsite. We had a very productive time together. Our new staff motto is: “Serving together in faith.” We spent time in worship and prayer with Barbara playing her guitar. We enjoyed each other. We played. We planned. We too took a personality inventory to see how we can make the most of our differences and strengths. God truly has blessed us with a great staff, as they seek be a blessing to you. Please continue to pray for each of them.
