Monday Musings (10/1/12)

Dear Church Family,

What a great celebration we had on Heritage Sunday yesterday. Over 130 persons gathered for worship. We recognized three of our founding members who were with us and we received 9 new members into the fellowship. Both the choir and the praise team led us in a wonderful time of worship. After our time together over 90 persons stayed for the fellowship meal and continued to share stories of the church. We even had visiting with us yesterday a couple from Erie, who were married in the church 43 years ago in our current sanctuary. They were one of the first weddings performed there. It was simply a great day yesterday.

As we came together the message was about the importance of being in God’s Word. The simple question I have for you today my friends is this. Are you in God’s Word? Have you opened your Bible Today! God desires a daily relationship with us. Part of that relationship is being in His Word. How are you doing at that? What changes can you make to make reading God’s Word a priority in your life? Perhaps this will give you something to think about in the week to come. Blessings to you and your family this week.
