Monday Musings (10/22/12)

Dear Church Family,

What a wonderful time in worship and fellowship this past weekend. Around 160 folks attended one of our three worship services and over 70 people attended the family cookout on Sunday night. It has been a wonderful weekend to worship the Lord and to fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. As you are going throughout this week I want you to think about something. What does it mean for you to be a Christian? What does it mean for you to follow Christ? We have been talking a lot lately about being disciples, living for Jesus, and the importance of Church in our daily lives. It all comes down to how we see ourselves as Christians. Is being a Christian just a title or a group you belong to? Is it perhaps something much more? Is it a way of life for you? A way that you choose to live because you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Something for you to think about as you go throughout this week.

Along the Journey,
Pastor Jude
