The New Normal is a great term to describe a person living out faith in Christ in daily life. The past Sunday, we began a new sermon series called " Called the New Normal" , by focusing on our responsibility to be persons of prayer as Christ followers. This coming, Sunday, we will talk about how God defines servant hood for our lives and we will ask I ourselves how are we answering the call to be a servant? The "the New Normal" series is about stewardship for each of us as disciples of Christ. One of the definitions of stewardship is the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care. As Christians, God has entrusted so much to us for us to be involved in in his name. Sunday well focus on the stewardship of servant hood. In a week new church t shirts will be available for sale with "The New Normal" Logo. On Friday, a letter from Drew Mims and myself is bring mailed to you. I hope you will thoughtfully and prayerfully read it and respond. We will have "The New Normal" Commitment Sunday on Nov. 4.
This coming Sunday at 2 p.m., a "Blessing of the Animal" Service will be held in the Courtyard. Hopefully weather will be great but if not we will postpone it to the following Sunday. Bring your pets, invite your friends, and share in this unique service Sunday.
On Sunday, Oct. 28, we will remember our beloved church family members who have run the race of faith and have received a crown of righteousness in this past year in the morning worship service. We invite the family of each of the persons we will remember to take a white rose following the service that represents their loved one that we will remember.
